The Hex bar might be one of the strangest pieces of gym equipment you will see in the gym today. Don't let that put you off though, it's an excellent addition to any serious strength and conditioning set-up.

One reason for this is it's ability to reduce tension on the lumbar spine whilst developing lower body power. It does this by allowing you to step “into” the bar instead of standing behind it. This means you will be able to drive more weight off the floor with your hips and legs in a more upright position without the strength of your back coming into question.

The Hex bar is also a useful tool for teaching beginners how to deadlift without the dangers of weak backs and poor flexibility getting in their way, and for tall athletes who struggle to deadlift conventionally.

The Strength Shop Hex bar has been improved with the help of feedback from our customers over the years. It now boasts longer sleeves compared to other brands versions which will now hold more plates. The bar has now also been redesigned to fit in most racks, cages or rigs.

1.6m trap bar

Incredible value for money very well made fits perfectly in my garage gym along with my plates and texas deadlift bar. Really enjoy dealing with the guys in motherwell, bought my gear online and collected in person 10/10

Quality. 10/10

Order it and it arrived the next day. Packaged so well that it took an age to unwrap it. Actually better than the one I use in the gym. If you like to train with bumper plates you need the next one up. This is the third product I have bought from The Strength Shop and I'm yet to be disappointed. Cheers.

Very robust trap bar l

Have brought pretty much all my home gym gear from Strength Shop & this trap bar was my latest addition. It’s well built so will last a lifetime, can handle a lot of weight, knurling is extremely grippy & plenty of room on the sleeves for adding plates. Very happy & would definitely recommend.

Perfect as long as you are not a giant

Arrived quickly even with the free delivery option. Very well packaged (a little too well - it took me almost an hour to unwrap it). Quality is top notch - feels well built and looks like it will last a long time. It does feel a lot smaller than it looks in the pictures, and I am only 5 foot 9 so if you are an absolute mountain of a person you might feel a bit claustrophobic.

Really nice bar, well made with no flaws and good knurling.I'm 6ft tall and have plenty of room to move. Would definitely recommend it if you want a hex bar. Awesome customer service, well packaged and quick delivery too!
