    At home workouts and total body

    I'm having trouble finding ideas for at home workouts.

    I read this article http://www.wannabebig.com/injury-reh...oblems-solved/
    and it helped and I got some ideas.

    Im looking for articles or exercises that use a bar and bench. I know the bench you can do inclines, declines, bench press but im having trouble finding other excersises.

    Im attempting to slowly get out of the gym and do at least all my upper body stuff at home.

    Some others I watch a video of (article above)
    Russian barbell twist
    Plate drag
    Bent over row

    Im also looking for a workout plan using these types of excersises. Right now im kind of lost and just do my entire upper body.

    Also any articles showing full body trainig. I have a tree trunk I push around, and Im thinking of getting a tire once the weather clears up.

    Im not looking (but you can) explain every workout but if you would just list what there called or a link I can search from there. Also what to not do or maybe how to group different excersies.

    You can still get a decent workout with just a barbell and a bench;;;not optimal though, I would at least start saving for a power cage.

    Deadlift
    Split squat or step-ups or lunges
    Bench press
    Barbell rows
    Standing press
    Curls
    Ab and grip work

    What else do you need for an optimal workout? As long as you can clean the weight over your head you still have low weight - high rep squats without a power cage. And front squats too... Are heavy squats the missing part of the equation?

    Yes, squats would be a great thing to add. But, I still think to be effective with them you need a cage or a rack. Most people can't get enough weight in place to make it intense enough, and then getting the weight off your shoulders is pretty scary.

    The OP would not need a rack to do BB hack squats or Jefferson Squats. While he would not be able to move as much weight as a back squat, until he could get a rack, he would be able to incorporate squats. I was going to suggest the variety of BB curls he could do but that won't work....he doesn't have a rack.
