So, i'm going through a divorce and going to pick up my homegym equipment in the morning. My squat rack is a wooden diy guillotine tier abomination, so i'm planning on just leaving it behind.
How does /fit/ feel about zercher squats? Or are there other better variations i can use until i get a suitable power cage?
Not a bad idea. Plus it would help me work on my power cleans, i've never really included them (still pretty dyel). If i want to squat heavier would zercher be a decent alternative? I know damn well i cant clean 200lbs
Fair enough. Looks like i'll just front squat whatever i can clean till i get a new rack, which should only be a week or two. Still gonna try a few sets of zerchers for the hell of it.
Do lots of sumo deadlifts. They hit legs a bit more than conventional.
In your situation i'd probably focus on driving my semi-sumo deadlift up, and then doing front squats after as accessory more lightly
My deadlift is always a semi-sumo stance. Not feet damn near touching the plates sumo, but wider than conventional and hands inside knees. Conventional just doesn't feel right to me
It is a bad idea desu. Say goodbye to heavy front squats.
what the other guy said
just built a squat rack out of metal. it really isn't hard. mine too me a day and cost about 50 quid.
Becsuse divorce doesn't existin the rest of the world
I thought about building one, but i've got the cash at the moment to just buy one, plus it'll probably looks nicer
