    Deadlift question...


    Is using a Hex Bar for Deadlifts just as effective as using a barbell? I used a hex bar the other day and I felt much more comfortable.

    It probably doesn't make a huge difference, but I wouldn't call it the same or as effective. Probably alot more leg work involved with the hex bar.
