I can't do the classic squat. My back's fucked and has been for like 20 odd years. And now my knees are going which isn't helping. I used to squat but now I can't - anything more than about 1/2 my bodyweight and I regret it the next day. Deadlifting isn't much better either. The closest I get these days is rack pulls from the knee caps. Any lower and the bottom part gives me severe sciatica. But I noticed the gym as a trap-bar mostly unused in the corner and I was messing around with it and it seems to solve one of the big problems I perceive as having with the normal deadlift, that being that the weight to too far forward for me. It feels like it places the weight exactly where it should be - over my feet. Anyone got much experience training with these things? I felt like it worked the legs, hams, hips and back all at once. So I'm thinking maybe I could use this as my main leg left and supplement it with some reverse DB lunges or even the extension/curl machines. Any comments or suggestions welcome....well other than the "just learn to DL / squat properly dude, it will fix your back" comments as I followed this for years and it didn't!
