I tried it out tonight, on a much lighter weight than what I do with a barbell and hit 2 sets of 12 reps – seriously though an incredible pump… The grip is obviously different to how it would be with a barbell, it also forces you to use a close grip.
I don’t know how effective it is, seemed pretty sweet.
Funny you say this, I tried it last wednesday as neutral pulling is easier on my elbows at the moment.
- it’s not comfortable starting as up my deadlifting stance would be where the plates go
- you won’t fit to many plates on most
- think the grip is a bit too narrow for me
If I had a home gym, a triton bar would be better.
