I recently bought my first olympic bar, weights, and bench(craigslist rules!). I haven't lifted free weights since high school but I have done some dumbbell work off and on and I have always had a pretty physical job. I am currently 5'-7 170lbs. I was planning to start the 2-day split in the FAQ today. However I don't have a squat rack or power cage yet so I was considering alternating between steinborn lifts and clean+front squat to replace squats for now. First question is what constitutes one rep with the steinborn lift? Do I get the bar on my back and do one squat then unload the other side or do all 5 reps before the first unload? I have watched some videos of it but the ones I see they only do 1 rep so they are no help. Also my 1 rep max on squat is 200lbs. (pathetic I know) so what would be a good weight to start steinborn lifts with? 30% less? I don't want to try too heavy at first and risk losing it since I have no rack. But I don't want to start too light either and feel like I am wasting time. My goals are just to get stronger for now since there is no place close that I can train any type of MA(less than 1 hour away anyway). Thanks for the input.
