Trap Bar Deadlift

Used the trap bar for my entire 5x5. Out of paranoia with my lower back. Up to 250pounds for 6 some far. There’s no reason I couldn’t use the trap bar for 531 is there?

You can use trapbar in place or a barbell if that is your preference

Why not? It’s a deadlift.

Very much a newbie. Just making sure

I switched to trap bar for my 531 DL and its been great. I always tweaked my back with conventional and the trap bar makes it easier to get some DLs in without much thought or risk.
