So, I recently started a new job that has a gym in the building, and I’m looking to do my workouts there both to save money on gym membership, and because they allow me to go train during work hours, hence saving home time and getting paid to lift which is pretty cool.
However, the gym does not have a squat rack, or a proper bench (one that you has handles to place the bar on). And I really wanted to start 5/3/1…
The Gym does have barbells, lots of dumbells going up to about 60 lbs, kettlbells, pully machine and a smith machine.
My questions is; would it be productive doing 5/3/1 while replacing the bench with a smith machine bench, and the regular squat with a goblet squat?
Or Should I abandon 5/3/1 and try to find a program that does not include the barbell bench press and the regular squat?
