    You know what never gets old? Threads about how to squat without a squat rack.

    This also includes benching



    Floor press, and SOHP should be the meat and potatos of your pressing diet

    I found it for you. Some good ideas in there. As for the pressing, what Standard said.

    Tell me, how did your bandana get so smelly? And why don't you just wash it?

    I had an idea on floor pressing. You could use automotive jack stands. You would have to be careful setting the bar back down on them because there is no backstop. I don't know if its ever been posted before. It seems like a good idea though. Some of them adjust pretty high.

    Merrill you're not the first to have that idea... the jacks can also work for poor man rack pulls

    Let me get this straight, you can only front squat if you have 330 lbs? How did you become such a beast and still have to ask the question you just asked? If you had a bench, you probably couldn't bench anyways without 200 more lbs.

    2 sets of Olympic boxes, one set at top position, 1 set at bottom position, or just build some heavy duty saw horses.
