Ok can someone please tell me why strength coaches are moving towards trap bar for their deadlift training?
Please correct me if I am wrong and I have been wrong many times but learned from them each time. It seems to me that the trap bar deadlift is a cop-out for people who are to lazy to learn how to deadlift properly.
Or the coaches are just fed-up with trying to teach it.
It is and can be a very difficult lift to teach to beginners but the rewards seem to me out weight the hard hours of coaching.
In the traditional deadlift the posterior chain is under greater tension than that of the trap bar and the posterior chain is the week point in most young athletes. Also in my view the posterior chain in sports is the athletes foundation of movement, so why neglect?
Please if I am wrong or out of line put me in my place.
