  • Trap bar deadlift Grip issue

    I have been using the trap bar deadlift for a while with great success. But since going back to college, the facilities there have them but without any knurling. I have tried using chalk as always but still can't seem to get a grip. Any idea on how I can still get a grip and be able to complete the lifts. Thanks.

    Ah yes, the memory of my college gym brings back visions of baby-bottom-smooth barbells. Woof. In any case, straps would be the move here.

        I like the IronMind Sew-EZ straps.

            Probably too well for your liking. Have a handyman ready to cut the straps off, 'cos that trap bar ain't gonna let you go.

            I can now confirm after using them for the first time that damn the trap bar didnt want to leave my hand. I was able to get 295 which was what I intended
