I'm sure this will draw the ire of many a hardcore bber, but here goes...
I recently tried performing deadlifts and squats from the low pulley on my home gym (the one below the leg extension - not the one used for rows). Deadlifts with a straight bar attached to the pulley seem perfectly natural. And if I turn around and face away from the machine, it is quite simple to do hack squats from the same low pulley.
I'm not a hardcore bodybuilder, but rather a middle-aged, just trying to stay in shape, casual but regular (3 days per week) trainer. I'm simply looking for a way to perform squats and deads effectively and safely at home, with the equipment I currently have. It is not necessary to advise me to get more free weights - I'm aware that they are preferred for these exercises. But unless and until I acquire additional weight, is there any problem with using the above method?
