HOW THE TRAP BAR CAN BENEFIT YOUR TRAINING PROGRAM & OVERALL DEVELOPMENT🏋️♀️💪 LESS STRESS ON THE SPINE: "As others have pointed out, the biggest drawback of both the straight bar deadlift and the barbell back squat is the amount of harmful stress it puts on the lumbar spine" ... "Since the trap bar configuration allows you to step inside it rather than behind it" ... "reducing the amount of sheer force on the spine". BETTER FOR BEGINNERS:
"... For the majority of the population, getting into a good deadlift position with a straight bar is a huge challenge requiring a lot of upfront coaching and a generous helping of mobility work" ... "Its configuration leads to a much more upright torso position, allowing you to "sit" into the movement with far fewer technical requirements than a traditional straight bar deadlift.
The only potential drawback some coaches have with the trap bar setup has to do with the final stage of hip extension or lockout at the top of the movement. In the straight bar deadlift, you essentially lock your hips into place against the bar, preventing your back from overextending, whereas with the trap bar there's no such stopping mechanism. However, this problem can be easily coached away.
