The VERVE® V2 Olympic Size Trap Bar features a highly durable hexagonal frame forged from thick 38mm square steel tubing. Perfectly knurled parallel handles with a 32mm diameter provide excellent grip allowing you to fully focus on your lift. The VERVE V2 Trap Bar facilitates a greater focus on the natural mechanics of a deadlift, giving your hand a neutral grip and focusing the weight as a more evenly spread distribution across the target muscles.

The main purpose of moving the handles to the side of the lifter using the VERVE hex bar is to free up space in-front (and behind) of the lifter which would normally be occupied by a straight barbell. The effect of this is a reduction in back range of motion forward, allows movement of the legs to perform exercises such as farmers walks, and eliminates the friction of a barbell on a lifters thighs in exercises such as a shrug. Finally, the elevated handles of the bar enables the lifter to reduce deadlift range of motion and add more weight for "overload" training.
