What exercises can be performed using this barbell?
Lower Body Exercises
Trap Bar Deadlifts: This is one of the most popular exercises performed with a trap bar. The hexagonal design allows you to stand inside the bar, promoting a more upright torso and potentially reducing lumbar stress compared to a conventional barbell deadlift.
Trap Bar Jumps: Load the bar with a moderate weight and perform jump squats. The design of the bar can make it more comfortable and safer to execute jumps.
Trap Bar Farmer's Walk: Lift the bar and walk for distance or time. This move can help improve grip strength and core stability.
Split Squats: Stand inside the bar and perform split squats by placing one foot forward and one foot back, then bending both knees to lower yourself toward the floor.
Shrugs: With the bar in your hands, shrug your shoulders upwards to target the upper trapezius.
Trap Bar Back Squat: While it may be slightly unconventional due to the shape of the trap bar, back squats can be performed by resting the bar on the upper back, just like a traditional back squat. The challenge will be maintaining balance due to the unique design of the bar.
- Stand inside the trap bar, squat down, and position the bar so that it is resting on your upper traps and shoulders.
- Ensure that your core is engaged and your back is straight, then perform the squat by bending at the hips and knees, lowering your body, and then pushing back up to the starting position.
Trap Bar Front Squat: Slightly more challenging due to the design of the trap bar, but feasible with attention to form.
- Stand inside the trap bar, squat down, and position the bar so that it is resting across your front deltoids and collarbone area.
- Keeping your elbows up and in line with the bar, perform the squat ensuring your knees do not cave in and your back remains straight and upright throughout the movement.
Trap Bar Good Mornings
- Rack Pulls: Adjust the height on the power rack for different variations of rack pulls.
Upper Body Exercises
Overhead Press: You can perform overhead presses by standing inside the bar and pressing it overhead, targeting the deltoids.
Bent Over Rows: Holding the trap bar with a neutral grip, hinge at the hips and pull the bar towards your lower ribcage.
Trap Bar Floor Press: Lie on the ground and press the bar upwards, similar to a bench press but with a neutral grip, which can be easier on the shoulders.
- Trap Bar Chest Press: Lie on the bench and press the bar upwards.
Upright Rows: With hands close together, pull the bar upwards towards your chin, targeting the shoulders and traps.
Full Body Exercises
Trap Bar Deadlift and Shrug: Combine a deadlift with a shrug at the top of the movement to work both the lower and upper body.
Trap Bar Deadlift to Overhead Press: Perform a deadlift and then transition into an overhead press at the top of the movement.
Trap Bar Carry and Lunge: Pick up the bar and perform a walking lunge, targeting several muscle groups at once.
Do the barbell sleeves spin?
Yes, they spin.
