Absolutely. If you tell someone to get their butt down, push through their heals and lift with their legs and they actually listen, the trap bar dead lift will be much easier than a traditional dead lift or back squat.
I don't get not having someone do it just because they are a beginner. It's one of the easiest lifts to get right, kind of like goblet squats, and will actively reinforce the correct movements they will need once they start working with a traidtional bar.
Currently cutting to <220. Only goal; elite as soon as humanly possible. Next step towards this goal; 500 raw squat.
