Alternative to Dead-Squat Bar?


#1

Coach,

I’m looking at starting built for bad but do not have access to a dead-squat bar. Is their an alternative to this?


#2

Trap bar. If you make $75,000 plus per year a dead squat bar is nice, but completely unnecessary


#3

I think good alternative will be dumbbell squat

You can’t really load the DB squat enough unless you have really heavy dumbbells. If you aren’t strong yet (e.g. if you can deadlift less than 315lbs) would should be okay, but as soon as you are decently strong, DB squats wont work that great.
