Olympic High Hex Bar
The hex bar is an essential addition to any gym or home. You can user it to build overall body strength and muscle. Specially, the hexagon bar features a unique hexagonal shape that helps correct your stance. That’s because the Olympic hex bar keeps weight always centered on the center line of the body during deadlifts, shrugs, and power pulls. Moreover, the change in angle help users to do dead lifts. With this hex barbell, you need less of glutes and lower back, while increasing the use of the quadriceps.
If you has a high hex bar, stop using it just for shrugs, and consider doing some deadlifts. Opens a New Window with it. It allows you to go heavier than standard deadlifts (which place more overload on the leg muscles), leading to greater muscle growth in the long run. Even if you compete in the deadlift, using the hex bars occasionally can help you go heavier to get stronger in the lower-body muscles. And if you had to give up deadlifts due to lower-back issues, the hex bars may be your key to doing them again.
With a barbell, the weight is in front of your body; while the design of the hex trap bars place the weight in line with your body. The Olympic High Hex Bars place a lighter load on the lumbar spine.

How to choose a Olympic High Hex Bar?
When choosing a hex bar, look for one that is the right size to fit your frame when you do squats, dead lifts or shrugs. Also consider how many weight plates it can accommodate and decide if this is sufficient for your needs.
