The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    No squat rack for 5 weeks...

    So I'm in Florida for the next 5 weeks and the only place I can workout is Planet Fitness. This place is a joke. There is no squat rack, only 3 smith machines.

    I was doing Starr's intermediate 5 x 5... but now I don't have a squat rack. I don't mind changing up my workout for 5 weeks but not being able to squat??

    Is there anything I can do to substitute? They do have free bars that I suppose I could set up with 135 or so and clean and press it back onto my shoulders and squat it without a rack... but I won't be getting a proper set up that way...

    Any suggestions of things I can do in lieu of squats?? I know nothing can replace squats, but I really need some type of supplement.
