AN ALTERNATIVE TO A STRAIGHT BAR FOR DEADLIFTS AND SHRUGS
The trap bar, also known as a hex bar, is perfect to use for deadlifting even if you are suffering from any minor back injury. This is because using the bar puts far less stress on your spine when deadlifting.
It may look a little strange but don't let that put you off. It's hexagonal in shape and allows you to step in the centre and perform deadlifts, squats or shrugs.
The bar is built from heavy duty 4mm steel and features knurled handles as standard giving you a heavy duty bar that is capable of handling anything you can throw at it. The zinc plated weight horns and reinforced racking pins make this perfect for any racks with J Hooks between 1050mm and 1300mm apart.
