squat replacement?

  1. squat replacement?

    i work out at home and have to make use of whats around. Deadliftings fine, instead of a bench ive got a machine i can use for a floor press, but im unable to squat because ive got nothing thats like a rack. suggestions?

  2. lunges... db or bb.
    SFW and GFH

  3. Clean the bar and do front squats

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

  4. You can try zercher squats.

  5. i have same problem, i dont have a squat rack so i can only squat what i can lift above my head and onto my shoulders, so i squat my 1 rep max on the shoulder press, 3 sets of 60 reps.

  6. like said before, front squats. Also try jefferson squats, they are old school.

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

  8. 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.

  9. Learn how to do overhead squats.

  10. 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.
