Hello , what do you guys think .
I want to use the trap bar to really target my quads .
so i wear shoes with elevated heels or putting 1inch plates under the heels .
torso really upright , knee’s travel a bit forward just at toe level .
should i really need to worry about buttwink /tuck under ?
since there is no spinal compression like in barbell squats .
i want to perform this movement on a little platform to just get a 90Ã?Â° angle.
didn’t find any video’s on the internet who performs the trap bar deadlift like a hack bar squat .

I DON’T have any technical advice about the trap bar squats. I bought a trap bar so I could start going heavy again on leg days.
I blew some disk out in my upper back squatting when I was younger and have never been able to load a decent enough amount of weight to the squat bar…even moving up in ridiculously small increments over time I would end up hurting myself with puny poundages
So…I ended up experimenting with trap bar squats
LUV’d it for years
My new fav exercise for legs now is front squats
NO issues with this exercise and I can pretty much max out if I want
