Is it possible to follow SS in a smaller gym with no barbells, only dumbbells and Smith machines? I can't imagine being able to do something like power cleans without a barbell, so are there any alternative excersizes?
>inb4 find a new gym
This gym is free, and getting a membership somewhere else isnt.
Either do the program right or don't do it all.
For people just starting out it's pretty difficult to mess up gains but if you're serious about getting stronger/looking good then you're going to want to use the right equipment.
In general I'm not super hardcore about people modifying a program or something but at least go to a gym where you can do the exercises the way you're supposed to.
Yes, just do the movements with body weights. You will have to double the reps though. Also instead of a gallon of milk a day, just drink a gram of milk a day. I can personally guarantee equal or better results this way.
You cannot do something different from SS or a barbell regimen and expect to get the same results. You simply have to face the fact that you need the right equipment. Best advice, find a way to get some fucking barbells.
>if SS cant be done with out a bar bell what is a decent alternative routine?
You will never be able to develop barbell like strength without a barbell.
Try doing 200kg dumbbell squats.
