So I just started helping at the local high school training the kids with their weightlifting program(offseason football players). I walk into the weight room and there are 3 smith machines,,4 benches, an old hip sled and an old hammer strength hip sled. DB's from 5-40 then a gap and then a pair of 100's they have 1 trap bar, and a peck deck. Thats really about it except for a broken lat pulldown machine. Basically I have no way to get the bar on these kids' back, to elicit the hormonal response we love so much from the squat.
Anyways, the gym teacher/nazi who runs the weight room, believes that squats are bad and that the smith machines are the best and safest way to squat.
I need help convincing him to sell them and buy some squat racks, also some creative ways that HS kids would be able to do legs would also help too.
