The superior bar

Replaces squat and deadlift with one move, while sparing your spine.

    I got a hex bar instead of getting a rack, weightlifting bar and bench when the gyms are closing. Used them as my main lower body exercise. Together with the pull-up/dip tower, makes a good bare bones budget gym.

    Every time I've tweaked something while deadlifting, it's been with the trap bar

    Meme bars are fun but they’re not a substitute for the barbell

      They literally are actually. That's the whole reason they exist. They target the body differently than a straight bar.

        Then they're not a substitute, they're an alternative.

    Saved me from destroying my back with deadlifts. I'm starting to believe deadlifts only make you better at deadlifting, they don't really do anything

      Hex bar is superior in every way.

        You're lacking the coordination and requisite knowledge to have to know what the fuck you're doing at ever-increasing weights that all that brings. So like a smith machine it makes things easier and you can lift heavier, but also give you a false sense of security. This could be especially dangerous if you want to go back to a real barbell to go for lmao4pl8s and you have the technical strength to go for the high weights, but totally lacking the coordination, core and stabilizers.

    how do you do squats with hexbar?
    or is this saying the hexbar deadlift is a 2 for 1 movement?

      Hex bar DL is very comparable to a squat. The weight is centered and you essentially just stand straight up. The difference is you hold the weight rather than rest it on your back so it hits some different muscles, but your legs don't really notice.

      Just use the low bars and stand up. It's stupid easy.

    10/10 best way to do shrugs. Unfortunately the hex bar at my old gym only held 4pl8 so thats what I had to max out at. My new gym doesn't have one (yet, I'm nagging them).
