Good price. Tempting.

This is what this site has to say about the hex bar:
The researchers concluded that the greater strength was due to the fact that the hex bar keeps the weight closer to the body. So while the hex-bar deadlift engages the same muscle groups as the standard deadlift, it allows you to use more of the quadriceps to lift the bar and less hamstrings, glutes, and lower back.
The only issue I have with the straight bar is it gets in the way of my knees when doing deadlifts. Also, it's harder on the lower back.

My bro and I have been looking at this and others for a while. This is a solid trap bar, but the open trap bars with loading jacks have become features on much cheaper bars (compared to the high end $700+ ones). Bellsofsteel.com and northern lights both have open/jack trap bars for 180-250, but no stock. I really want the jacks to just store them vertically when not in use instead of having them lying around flat.

I've had this bar for several years and love it for deadlifts and farmer's walks. I've been recommending it to everyone.
The only two slight issues to be aware of:
  1. The knurling is quite aggressive
  2. The sleeves are short, this may become an issue especially if you use bumper plates.

This, or an open trap bar....uggg. Might buy now and think later.

Edit: Nope, 9" sleeve is way too short. I don't even think I could get 3 45lbs bumpers on there plus a collar. Wallet safe.

Any suggestions for a bar that holds 1inch plates?
The pictures look like this holds 2inch plates, but description is not specific

I want one of these...but I only have standard (not olympic) plates in my small apartment that I store under my couch :(. I'm presuming some type of reverse adapter is impossible.

Sell all your 1" stuff now while the market is still good for it and move to 2" if you can. Stocks are low, but everything is 2". 1" only for those cheap York sets.

*Edit* Just sold 50 lbs of 1" plates plus a ez curl bar for $100 in under 24 hours. Unload that stuff asap haha

Not sure which GoodLife locations you go to, but pretty much all of them have trap bars.

This looks like a great deal but I strongly prefer a straight bar for deadlifts with a reverse grip. It just feels completely natural to me and if you lift correctly you should never have to worry about your back.

Deads are a push/pull exercise (push off the floor with your legs and pull/row with your arms) as you all already know I am sure and remembering that helps a lot when I lift.

Trap bars are great but they just aren't my cup of tea.

I have a bar with agressive knurling so I put white hockey tape on the areas I grip. Problem solved and the grip is fantastic with the tape.

This is the one I got for my work gym years ago. It was the only standard plate trap bar I could find back then.
