    new gym has no barbells

    i have to work out @ this gym for the summer, and it has NO BARBELLS. there are lots of DB's, and various Cybex machines for chest, rows, hip abduction and adduction, curls, back extensions, flyes, leg extensions, leg curls, lat tower... but no BB's. so i've been trying to figure out what to do for squats, deads, etc.

    right now i do:

    dips, DB bench, pullups, Cybex row, DB skulls, DB shoulder presses, lateral raises.

    there's Cybex machines for leg extensions, and stuff, but i'm not too fond of them

    help me

    DB lunges, cleans, snatches, squats, deads, slds.

    What's the big deal?

    You can do DLs with DBs I think. For legs, I really like walking DB lunges, not sure if those could replace squats though

    Could you do DB hack squats? Or will that not work...?

    My gym has barbells. 6 of them to be accurate. And they have enough plates to make one bar weigh 45 kilos. Pathetic. I hate my gym. Ive asked them for the last 2 months to order some 20kg plates and some 1.25kg plates but as yet they havent turned up. Im changing gym if i dont see them in the next 15 days.
