    Clean the bar up and squat it. You are doing yourself a HUGE disservice by not squatting.

    You, my friend, are in serious need of a squat-beating. If you want to be big and strong then you need to squat. There are no two ways about it. Learn to love the squat.

    Read the stickies on Starting Strength and Texas Method. Read this too: http://www.wannabebig.com/training/p...cs/squatology/

    Buy squat stands or something. You need to back squat. Front Squats are a decent substitute but wont be as beneficial as back squats.

    I dont know man, use your own judgement. Call Pendlay Barbell and ask them yourself. They are good people and will be honest with you.


    Try these too:

    okay im going to link you to something, and maybe you can tell me if this is bull or not:

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/PowerLine-Squat-O...d=p3286.c0.m14

    it is a great price. if you scroll down, it says that it can hold up to 400 pounds, if thats true, that would be great. i think i should hop on this and order it from Ebay, or would you say its safer to order it from the site you gave me, i just dont wanna get scammed.

    This is getting too confusing and I'll let others help you (I'm done). First you wanted a good full body routine using just a barbell. I gave you a good one. Then you wanted a routine like Starting Strength. Then posted that you were going to get that squat stand. Then people said it wouldn't hold much over 400 lbs. You are a long way off of outgrowing that stand by the way. Then you said your parents wouldn't let you get one and you couldn't afford a gym. So, i give you a good routine that will get you big and strong without having to worry about squats for the time being. Now you're going to switch again. You, my friend, don't know what you want and will continue to flounder around with no gains to show for it. Quit looking for that super-secret routine, it doesn't exist. Just put your all into a good basic routine and give it a couple of years. Squat, deadlift, whichever, both will get you big and strong. In fact, deadlifts recruit more muscle than squats and Peary Rader wrote about guys getting even better results with 20 rep deadlifts than they did with 20 rep squats. I hope you find something that suits you and you can stick to it.

    I will tell you one super-secret for success though...find something and stick with it. Even if the routine is crappy (within reason), if you are progressive and consistant, you'll see progress.
