Use your imagination.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    For legs-hack squats, lunges
    For chest-military press, dips(if you find something to do dips off with), weighted pushups (put your weights in a backpacks and strap it to your back)...i recommend doing them off boxes or books for proper Range of motion), Handstand pushups against a wall
    various Bicep curls, Stiff-leg deadlifts, Bent over rows, Chinups (find something)
    I was in same position you are in 2 years ago...its enough equipment to make you grow if you are creative
    Try ONE HAND'll hold the bar to the side of you and grasp the entire barbell with ONE HAND and lift it up as you would in a dumbbell deadlift...lots of fun stabilizing the bar
