Here at Rebel, becoming more powerful is an outcome the majority of our athletes are chasing. This is why I wanted to bring on Rebel Coach Keiran Halton to sit down and discuss what may be the best power development exercise of all time, the trap bar jump. 

Our discussion is centered around where the trap bar jump best fits in your program, what an appropriate weight selection would be for your goals, how many sets and reps you should be doing, and how often it should be incorporated in a training week. Listen in for a quick step-by-step guide on how to apply the trap bar jump effectively in your training program.

What You’ll Learn in this Episode:
