Anybody Use Dumbbells Anymore?

I don’t know why you’re looking for an alternative to the trap-bar deadlift, since I can’t seem to find the reason in this thread… just that you are.

This is what CT said to me when I was looking for an alternative (since I don’t have a trap bar):

[quote]A good option is snatch grip deadlift starting with the hips low.

But the Dead-Squat/Trap bar deadlift is one of those things you can’t really substitute.[/quote]

Doing that with straps is acceptable. I’d assume wrist wraps too.

Not sure if that helps.
