    Alternative to DB squat?

    I can no loger do DB squats because the weight has gone up so much that I can't hold the DBs by my sides for long enough. And I don't have a squat rack so I can't do conventional squats.
    What do you think of these two excercises?

    And
    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...plitSquat.html
    This second excercise, DB split squat looks more like a lunge than a squat.
    Thanks.

    DB Lunge.

    Step ups onto a platform/bench.

    You are going to need a rack for front squats.. but lunges would be a good alternative.

    I already do lunges, and was told on another forum that lunges are good but you will not see much gains if you do lunges without some sort of squat.
    I may opt for the step-up squat.
    But what about the split squat, is it really a squat or just a stationary lunge?
