The Olympic Hex Trap Bar from 360 Strength is a great alternative to the standard 7 foot bar. It's rated to 450kg and fully rackable on most rigs and racks. A market leader, the bar comes with silver hard chrome sleeves for added durability.
The bar is is a hexagon-shape that you stand in the middle of and grip the handles laterally. Due to this, it has the ability to reduce stress on the lumbar spine whilst still allowing you to develop lower body power. This means you will be able to drive more weight off the floor with your hips and legs in a more upright position, without the strength of your back coming into question.The dual height neutral grip handles offer two height options for added versatility.
The hex bar (also known as a trap bar) is also great for beginners and rehabilitation as it allows the user to focus on their range of motion or gradually develop a deadlift program without putting as much pressure on the lower back.
Please note: this bar has silver hard chrome sleeves - not black sleeves as shown in the first image.
