    Some people are using the trap bar more often because for some people it's a bit more sport specific than the normal deadlift. But most people made the switch because you can load up more weight on the trap bar

          Cleans are more in the legs, trap bar is more in the legs, it's because the bar starts so close to your body, like the clean. But I do think that conventional can just be done like a clean pull as well which effectively does the same thing.

            Clean deadlifts, basically set up like a clean and perform it as a deadlift.

                tehres two types of deadlifts , hips high and hips low

                1. hips low involve two motions - squat then romanian deadlift -

                2. hips high - one motion

                andy bolton argues you can lift more using this method

                this is a retarded take, if you watch your clean deadlift video, yes they squat down low but once they start pulling their hips rise, so they are performing just a normal deadlift

                This is so fucking stupid: as soon as the weights get very heavy the bar will not move until the hips shoot up to the high position. So please calm down your dyel retardation

                its not retarded, these two both use a different technique

                I dunno, doing it with high hips hurts my back but doing it with lower hips = no back pain

                Yes but the low hips loads your quads much more, it's just another way to make your clean stronger.

    >high handle
    it's just cheating for bigger ego lifts. At a minimum you should be using the low handle in line with the bar and doing deficient with plates or platform under you

      Tried this once, with the weight centered level with your grip, it is free to try and lean the hexagon forward as your grip gets sweaty. I set 355 lbs down on my big toe.

      Grip the bar from the high handle.

      It's definitely cheating. You are missing some of the main elements of the deadlift, it's not just about moving weight vertically, reminds me of the Smith machine. The high handles are just trolling at that point.

    its safer than a normal deadlift and requires no technique, thats why normies and athletes use it.

    to be quite frank there isn't much reason to do normal deadlifts, its very easy to injure yourself if you perform them incorrectly.

        Because the lower back isn't taking the weight, it's like an Atlas stone lift.

        I use this instead of the usual squats, but deadlifts?

        Like most compounds it's not something to jump straight into with heavy weight

    These are so based. I’ve basically replaced squats and conventional deadlift with these and I will never look back. My legs and back are the biggest they’ve ever been and I don’t have to worry about hurting myself. Bonus points if you shrug at the top.

    I've actually switched to trap bar a week ago while keeping the same linear progression. If I switch back to conventional, should I keep the linear progression or should I remove some weight like maybe 20 pounds on the lift?

    I use the trap bar when the platform is taken. Frankly I see no reason to dead more than 3pl8 so it’s not really a big deal one way or the other. It’s a maintenance exercise for me not my entire personality

        Nah but I don’t doubt I could hit it with relative ease if I pushed towards it. Doing 3pl8 for sets isn’t that far off a 4pl8 single for me (6’0 90kg)

        For me it's still conventional. Honestly, I rarely see anyone use the trap bar at my gym. Not many Deadlift either though.

        Everyone who’s regular and takes it remotely seriously at my gym deadlifts. Especially the zooms they love that shit. It’s pretty normie tier now I’m surprised to hear people aren’t doing it. Where are you from? I’m UK city based

          Southern US, home gym is a hardcore bodybuilding gym. Most of the regulars compete. People do rdls often, but not regular Deadlifts. Maybe a few times a year. We have one powerlifter that always does them, but only him really. And one dude that does rack pulls from mid thigh a lot.
