Nitro Squat Program


With the Nitro Squat program, what can I substitute for back squats? Because of my gym set-up they are not an option. Other options include Zercher's and DB.


clean to front squat, rock bottom squats.


One of the keys in this program is generating powerful bar speed. Neither of these options are appropriate as a substitute for back Squats in this situation.

What type of loads will you be using? Try and give me an idea and I can offer a few different options.

My max front squat is around 125, overhead around 90 (both literally ass to grass). Quads are my most lagging body part. I have no squat rack and I have to clean the bar to get in position for front squats. My equipment is: a bench, freestanding barbell, adjustable weight dumbbells.
