Trap Bars for Improved Power Production?

🗣I can’t tell you how much I love seeing more people jump on the Trap Bar Jump/Pull train. The force plate data shows it produces the same (often more) force and is WAY easier to teach with much less risk. No brainer if the goal is increased power production. The data from Comfort et al shows that the catch (clean) actually lowers power production, so there is literally no reason not to do Trap Bar variations. ➖ Jim Kielbaso 

One big change we’ve made in our training in the last 2-3 years are adding Trap Bar Jump Squats to our power work. Triple extension. Easy to teach. Hard to do wrong. Huge power output.

Tons to like and not a lot to dislike.
