5 Advantages Of Trap Bar Deadlift Over Traditional

  1. By placing you inside the bar, the stress on the lower back is greatly reduced while the potential for power production increases. (one of our goals is to improve your power production)⁠
  2. The Trap Bar deadlift is much more user friendly. So it is much easier to lift with good form.
  3. It allows for greater variance in safe executions of the exercise. Some people’s natural body proportions will lead them towards more of a Squat-Deadlift hybrid, which is perfectly OK.⁠
  4. Research has found that when compared to Straight Bar Deadlifts, Trap Bar Deadlifts allow for faster bar speeds at identical loads and greater maximum loads.⁠
  5. You don’t have to worry about dragging the bar up your shins, this happens with some lifters executing the traditional straight bar deadlift. ⁠
