    Exercise replacements

    Hi. I'm new to weight lifting, and Im planning to work out at home. I got some tips of some exercises i could do, and I have started doing almost everyone of them, but there are a few that is impossible for me to do, cuz I dont have the equipment (I only have a bench press bench and a barbell and dumbbells).

    These exercises are the squat and standing calf raises (cant do them, cuz i dont have a squat rack) as well as chins (don't have a bar to pull myself up with).

    Can anyone give me some good replacements for these three exercises that mainly work the same muscle groups ? I'm looking for compound exercises that work as many muscle groups as possible (I've read that it's the best for mass increasing). I was thinking about overhead presses as a replacement for chins...Is that a good idea you think ?

    Thx in advance.

    Might look into a pullup bar that hooks/hangs from your door. They are around 50 or 60 dollars I think.
