You're both very welcome! It helps me out to post every day and then I can go back and look at old stuff. I guess I could do that on paper too, but, I don't. lol

As for trap vs straight BB deads, I honestly do not know! I personally believe that BB deads will build more muscle on your posterior chain which is key for throwing. But, you can build lots of power from trap bar deads without taxing your CNS by going heavy or light. I use them now for explosive purposes, either doing jumps with the trap bar or lighter deads with a power shrug at the top. 

All I know, is Vierra did loads of trap bar and he is the best thrower in history (arguably, of course). So I guess it's whatever fits your body type/purpose/plan! 

I like em both.
