    Alternate exercise for squats?

    Well I came to the conclusion that squats tend to knock my ribs out of place. So those are out. What would you recommend to take its place? Thanks

    Is there a way to correct your form or bar position so you can squat? Is it weight dependent?

    Have you tried squatting with a safety squat bar, cambered bar or even a thicker diameter bar so that all the weight doesn't sit in one spot?

    If not,
    front squats
    bulgarian split squats
    lunges
    step ups
    trap bar deadlift
    sumo deadlift
    deadlift
    leg presses

    Which ribs are getting knocked out of place? Have you seen a chiro or good physio? If it is one of your upper thoracics, it makes me wonder if you are flexed/bent over in the upper thorac--too kyphotic.

    1st and 2nd rib left side. I have been to a chiro a few times to get them reset.
