Trap Bar Dead Lift

A good introductory lift - Simple execution, minimal risk of injury.

  • Feet flat, shoulder width apart
  • Arms long and straight
  • Chest up
  • Neck and spine neutral

Good biometric position, naturally hitting intended muscles, and maximizing weight for strength building all the three main factors that make this lift a great exercise.

  • Feet pointed forward or slightly out
  • Knees remain forward and apart
  • Arms in-line with legs
  • Stand up straight, no shrugging
