I’m seeing that you do mainly trap bar deads over normal deads, I’ve never actually used one before and just wanted to know if you actually feel more in the quads than a normal deadlift?


#136

Maybe marginally. I’ll try and do some normal deads tomorrow so I can offer a more meaningful comparison. Deads has become my new focus and I’m trying to ingrain the correct movement pattern so I am definitely getting it in the PC.

The main reason I use the trap bar is an old shoulder injury. I have a tendency to overpronate and fixing myself to lift with a normal BB just ingrains that position. It is better, therefore, for me to use the trap bar and correct that postural issue.


#137

Thanks, don’t change your training plan just for me buddy!


#138

Spent this morning working on my normal deadlift form. Definitely getting it much more through my PC, which, by default, must mean trap bar is putting it through my quads to a greater extent. Hope that helps!


#139

Thank you very much, I have a hard time with the conventional deadlift and although I’ve been working on form I still don’t feel like I’m involving my quads enough and using far to much lower back. I’m going to purchase a trap bar and use it as a main heavy leg exercise, so hoping I get more leg action from it.


#140

I’m no expert and I’m really working hard on my form for conventional, but I found the biggest cue was to hinge at the hip - sounds so obvious when you say it! Also, a big change for me was ensuring that my grip was wide enough to allow me to bend my knees once the bar reached them on the way down. Those two changes have meant that I’ve taken all the pressure out of my lower back and moved the focus into my PC.
