This trap bar is designed in a hexagonal form making it easy to step in and out of the bar, ideal for shrugs and deadlifts. The movement is actually more like a squat than a deadlift, because you aren't leaning forward as much and it hits your quads more than you hamstrings. This hex bar, also known as a trap bar, is zinc coated to resist rusting. Like all hex bars, it has a solid sleeve design, ie: no rotation, as the movement is straight up and down with no rotation needed.
- Low handles flush with sleeves
- Length: 56"
- 24" between handles
- 9.5" loadable space on each sleeve
The 9.5" long sleeves will fit (4) of our 45lb economy plates on each side, plus collars, for a total weight including the bar of 417 lbs.
Your website has great info and all of the right gear (my opinion, of course!) at a fair price, and you do an excellent job of responding to questions and taking care of business. Glad I'm a customer, and you can count on me coming back the next time I need (or don't really need, according to my wife) some more equipment.
