    Regarding the US Military's use of the trap bar.

    It's just for assessment of general strength.
    They are not going to run a recruit through a gambit of deadlift, bench, squat, press.
    And what if they did do that, they would just screw it up anyway: safety bar squats, and football bar incline bench press or some such foolishness.

    From what I'm told, most gyms at the mil bases have regular barbells in them.
    I don't think they are pushing that as the primary method of training strength.
    But admittedly, that is probably happening, because to the "uninitiated", it would seem logical.

    Your argument should be:

    "the fastest way most efficient way to increase your 3RM trap bar lift, is to train the squat, press(es), and deadlift with the SSNLP using barbells"

    and/or

    "by getting your deadlift up to 405x5, you'll throw that silly little med ball 12+ meters, and all of the other silly contest-events they are having you do"

    It's amazing the endless stuff the US Army teaches the average soldier that the general public can't grasp: ballistics, navigation, electronic communications, weapons safety. But a 5 step deadlift is apparently just waaaaay too complex to teach.
