    Adjustable trap bar

    I like the look of this trap bar with adjustable handles and they're not raised so you can get down lower in the bottom position https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0J25iBE9Do

    Who here has it? I have it in one ear and it caused by the fuck up in the chain of muscles from the massiter to the trap more than likely from an unrack or OH injury that never got treated. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
