Trap Bar Exercises?


What exercises can I do with a trap bar?


deadlifts, shrugs


Military press, farmers walk, be creative.


Squats on a platform, deadlifts, shrugs, bent over rows, upright rows up the side, wide grip versions using the holes in the plates as handles. Neutral grip benches too. I couldn't live without mine.


I love Trap bar deads,, however most other people in the gym only use it to shrug,
