Trap Bar or Conventional Deadlift for Back Activation?

Hello, i would to know if i can get also some good activation of my back, with a trap bar (low handle) than a conventional deadlift ?
My lever are not so good for the conventional deadlift…
but this exercice seems very interesting so, if i can get approximately the same benefice with a trap bar i will do it.


Unless your goal is to compete competitively in powerlifting… Trap bar is perfectly fine.


Thank, ok ok because i will doing this exercice after squat, so i was afraid to don’t feel my back with a trap bar
