The New Xpeed Strength Range is rapidly becoming a true leader in quality strength training equipment, the new Xpeed Hex Trap Bar is no exception!
The trap bar, also known as the hex bar, is a hexagonal, or diamond shaped bar.
It is considered by weight lifters to be one of the most innovative strength training pieces of equipment in many decades. It was originally designed as an alternative form of weight training due to the inventor’s lower back injury.
Trainers often recommend the trap bar as an alternative to squats and straight bar deadlifts to protect and strengthen lower back injuries of their clients.
