    No. Why would you think you could?

    No even if you use low handles it doesn't stimulate the same muscles.
    It's basically a less effective squat

        What's the benefit of training hinging type motions? Is it for back? Glutes? I hate doing squats so much I don't ever want to do them again. I'd rather do 3 extra exercises than to do squats. I want to know everything it works so I can individually replace all that.

          hinge motions train the hip extensors: glute, hamstrings, spinal erectors.
          squat type of motion uses primarily the quads, glutes and the spinal erectors as stabilizers.
          although in theory you could replace squats, but I really suggest you get good in them, because its a superior exercise. I used to hate it too until my back got strong enough that the limiting factor in progression is only my quad strength, as it should be.

        No it isn't you fucking retarded zoomer, he can do the lift with a hip hinge if he wants and even full RDLs

        What happens when he goes heavy and his body forces him into the most effective position (mechanically) to lift the weight? Not an RDL anymore

    no you can not, trap bar is a useful accessory but due to weight distribution being on middle as opposed to front of body it isnt a substitute

    if you really dont want to do deadlifts (which is cringe) do rack pulls and RDLs

    Absolutely. Unless you're a powerlifter, you lose nothing with a trap bar and gain a significant margin of error with one.

        DL is not a back exercises. The amount of people that tweak their back because they chase numbers (as the sticky advises them to) is precisely why most people should choose the hex bar and then go do some reverse hypers or something.

    Sort of. Using the low handles is as close as you'll get but the weight distribution is different.

    I love using the hex bar for shrugs. Only problem is my gyms hex bar maxes out at 4pl8, so I have to do like 6 sets of 10 to really fatigue my traps which is stalling my gainz.

    Sure. Are you going to compete at all? If no then yes, use them. If yes then you use those as assistance.

    Sure. It hits the posterior chain less well, but you don't even have to Deadlift unless you compete in a sport it's part of like strong man or powerlifting

        I 100% love Deadlifting. It's my favorite lift. But I'll still tell this to anyone that asks. Rdls are better for 99% of people

    Absolutely. One thing a lot of people who shit on trap bars never think about is that you can actually modify how you lift with it. You can basically do an RDL just by consciously bending at the knee less and having a more horizontal torso angle. You could even do stiff leg if you wanted.
    Hell, athletes and other people who actually get paid to perform and move basically never use conventional deadlifts but use trap bar deadlifts and other exercises using trap bars all of the time. It causes less lumbar fatigue and allows more volume with less fatigue.

      Exactly anon, good to see someone isn't a complete fucking retard here

      I do 315-405 for high rep SDL/ RDLs on leg days using mine because the parallel handles feel better for my shoulders than pronated DLing on the straight bar

    From what I've researched it's pretty close to a conventional deadlift. Some even suggest to avoid conventional deadlifts unless you're competing due to the increased risk of injury. I personally use them because it's more natural for me and I enjoy them more. Just be sure to use the low bars and not the sissy bars.
