Trap Bar Deadlift

Start: Step inside the perimeter of the bar, making sure your feet are positioned equidistant between the front and back of the bar. Grip the handles tightly in either side right in the middle of each handle. Bend forward from the hips, keeping your torso just above parallel to the floor and your chest lifted to maintain the natural arch in your back.

Move: stand up driving your feet into the ground, straightening your legs, and thrusting your hips forward. As you approach the top of the movement, squeeze your glutes together and brace your abdominals to finish the lift. The Trap Bar is great at reducing the torque on your back as you hold the weight on your sides, maintaining a more neutral shoulder position.
