I'll keep it short - at the start of May I plan to do starting strength - but I only have 22kg bells (50lb) and a smith machine in my work gym.
So what do I do? to put it simply...
Do I get the bar on my shoulders and play it VERY safe? do I set up an area behind me thats 99% safe to bail onto (if theres such thing as a very safe way to bail on a squat without a rack)
couple of notes:
- Gym is at work, skipping it (going gym after work) would suck - its a massive bonus being able to go in working hours
- I live with parents, my bedroom at a wild guess is 12x12 feet but obviously chop some size off that for bed/very large desk - not very practical to buy a rack and a "grown up" bar (I have a set of light weights I used to use - pretty much positive these would be useless for squats quite simply because their combined weight is low)
