    Clean the bar and do front squats

    you can also do body squats - there are tons of variations you can do with body squats.

    Ka-POW! These things are god-awful but they hurt so good. You can also dead-start from the floor, no rack needed.

    do half the movement for a clean and press, then front squat the weight. its like a dead that transitions to an upright row, while moving your elbows under the bar.

    I have to say that Zerchers are your best option here. You can start from the floor or you can go to home depot and buy a couple heavy saw horses to set the bar on to start from.
