Of all the bizarre looking pieces of equipment that lay around at the gym, none draw as many confused looks as the hex bar. But despite it’s awkward appearance, the hex bar might just be one of the greatest innovations for strength-training. It’s configuration leads to better upright torso position, allowing you to ‘sit’ into the movement with less stress on the lower back. Additionally, it allows the knees to move forward and the hips to sit lower than normal deadlifting, avoiding the bar from scraping the shins at the bottom of the lift.
