The trap bar is a terrific aid for the deadlift and is considered by many much superior to a straight bar for sport specific training. It reduces spine stress relative to the straight bar deadlift, and puts the arms and hands into a near-perfect position.

Description

The trap bar, also known as a Hex Bar, is one of the greatest innovations in strength training equipment.

A bold statement about a bold bar, the trap bar is a terrific aid for the deadlift and is considered by many much superior to a straight bar. It reduces spine stress relative to the straight bar deadlift and puts the arms and hands into a near-perfect position. It also makes the lowering of the bar a reverse of the ascent. With a straight bar, lowering the weight can be a problem. This is because the knees get in the way more on the descent than they do on the ascent. The extent of this depends on the individual structure.

This rhombus-like bar lets users get the best benefits from the deadlift while keeping technique problems to a minimum and is fantastic for beginners. It is an outstanding bar.  All who use it will benefit.

If you are a competitive powerlifter and thus must use a straight bar at meets and in most of your training, a trap bar can still be a valuable “off” season training tool. It greatly reduces unnecessary stress but while developing strength that may have carry-over value to the straight bar deadlift (or even squat).

The trap bar was originally patented in 1985 by a powerlifting aficionado named Al Gerard, who was trying to find a way to train around a recurring lower back injury. It has since gained widespread support among many coaches as a back-friendly alternative to both traditional straight-bar deadlifts and squats.

Studies have shown the Trap Bar to be able to develop more power than regular deadlifts, less stress on the spine and being more beneficial for beginner athletes because of the ergonomic design.

There truly should be a trap bar in every gym.

    Excellent! Helps keep you in proper form. Don’t forget to buy the Olympic plates to go with it.

      Quick question for the boss, do you know how much weight this bar can handle? I plan on getting a trap bar for all my heavy deadlifts in an effort to quit buggering my back every 4 months. Thanks.
