Benefits of a trap bar

One of the most common trap/hex bar exercises is the deadlift. Shrugs and Farmers Walks are also a great way to use this special barbell. The major difference when you perform a hex bar deadlift to a conventional is: the centre of gravity, as that you’ll be standing literally in the bar rather than behind it. Most people can handle more absolute weight here than with a straight bar. Another component is that you’ll be lifting with a neutral grip.

Suitable for nearly all lifters

This type of barbell is suitable for a high variety of people. Whether you want to add variation to your strength training, are just starting out your strength sport journey or even if you have to work with or around injuries, the Olympic trap bar a great tool because it's technically less challenging and, allows staying more upright in the starting position, to ease strain on the back and a natural grip position. It’s loaded with any standard 50mm Olympic plate. Want to go really heavy? Ideally, you’d pick super thin steel plates.

Let’s browse over this Hex Bar features

The trap hex bar weight is 27kg unloaded and made of ultra-durable Q235 steel which is known for its toughness, a great quality for a bar that can be used for up to 400kg load. To ensure you’ll be able to maintain a firm grip, the knurling is medium. This Olympic trap bar features 32.5cm of loadable sleeves for maximum weight, and the sleeves have a diameter of 50mm. With a total of 160cm in length, it’s ideal for smaller training spaces like basements or garages, while it's still long enough to be placed on a rack. You can choose between two handle heights by simply flipping the hex bar over.

Perfect Bar

Had some issues with delivery due to unavailability on my part

Great Bar, solid, beautiful.

Will recommend

Sturdy and useful trap bar

it makes it easier to perform heavy deatlifts engaging more the upper chest, the upper traps and the rear delts. Less slippery in the hands and no sticking point below the knees. Easier to lift without an explosive start off the ground. Good for athletes with longer hip bones.

Die perfekte Trap Bar für mich!

Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der Trap Bar. Sie ist super verarbeitet, sieht gut aus und passt von der Größe perfekt in meinen kleinen Keller. Die Scheibenaufnahme ist für mich vollkommen ausreichend. Verpackung und Versandt waren ebenfalls top!
