Hi guys, I was just wondering which trap bar handles you guys use the most. My trap bar has two sets of handles that can be used. When loaded with 45s, you can either use a set of handles that’s the same height as a regular BB deadlift, or you can flip the bar over and use a set of handles that’s about 3.5" higher.
I’ve read that the lower handles (same height as a reg BB) allow for more recruitment of the glutes and hams, as in a traditional deadlift. The upper handles are supposed to allow for more recruitment of the upper back muscles. M
I guess it’s all in what you want to target, right?
Thanks for the input and comments.
