The trap bar isn’t new: It’s been around since the 80s, when according to legend, powerlifter Al Gerard invented it to reduce the stress on his back during deadlifts.
The barbell is shaped like a hexagon in the middle, allowing you to stand inside it rather than holding the weight out in front of you as you would a straight barbell, theoretically reducing the torque on your back.
The trap bar activates your back muscles less than the straight bar does. It shifts the load from your back and hamstring muscles to your quads, the study suggests.
The Gymholix Trap bar features a durable hexagonal frame. During a workout, an athlete can easily switch from one set of handles to the other simply by flipping the bar over. For strengthening the lockout, overloading on shrugs and limiting shoulder stress during bench presses. It also enables beginners or rehabbing athletes to focus on their range of motion.
