There Are Many Benefits Of Using A Trap/Shrug Bar Over Conventional Deadlifts


-The center of gravity of the resistance is in close alignment with the center of gravity of the lifter when using a trap bar. This enables the lifter to remain more upright and takes stress off the lower back, making trap bar deadlift a quad-dominant movement instead of a hip-dominant one.


-Your shins are spared using a trap bar.


-Trap bar deadlift works more musculature than its conventional counterpart, as there is more knee flexion, which then results in more muscle growth over time
