  • Shrug Bar: Olympic Size: H9. Deadlift – Trap Bar

Shrug Bar: Olympic Size

The lift feels like a mix of a squat and a deadlift. No other lift is quite like it. In fact, it is so unique that it is an official lift in the USAWA.

Here are the Official USAWA Rules for a Trap Bar Deadlift:

H9. Deadlift – Trap Bar
The rules of the Deadlift apply except a Trap Bar must be used. The Trap Bar must not be of the type that contains elevated handles.

X. Rules of the Basic Movements
These basic movements are not official lifts of the USAWA. Many individual rules of the lifts will utilize these rules of the basic movements with noted exceptions.

A. Deadlift
The bar will be placed on the platform at the lifter’s feet, directly in front of the lifter. The lifter will grip the bar with both hands with any grip and any hand spacing. The lifter may use an alternate grip in which the palms of the hands are opposed. The lift begins at the lifter’s discretion. The bar may be uneven during the ascent, but it must finish evenly. The bar may touch the legs during the ascent, but must not be rested on the legs, bounced, hitched, or lowered. Width of feet placement is optional, but the feet must be parallel and in line with the torso. Heels and toes may rise during the lift, but foot placing must not change. No substance of any kind may be applied to the legs. When the legs are straight, the arms are straight, the shoulders erect, the bar motionless, the lifter will receive a command from an official to lower the bar. The bar must be returned to the platform under control for the lift to be complete. “
