What is a trap bar good for?

Is a trap bar worth it?
Using a trap bar makes it much easier to keep your spine organized properly and also limits your ability to hyperextend at the top of a deadlift. The trap bar significantly reduces the chance of injury while lifting and allows people to perform lifts they previously couldn’t.
