No Pins Available

I am currently at a gym that has no racks with pins. Should i be using the same layering systems if i’m doing slight decline bench and military press not from pins?
Will be changing gyms when my membership is up in june. Currently scouting for gyms with pins available

Yes, you can do it without pins, but you can`t do clusters since unracking the weight 5 times during a set will hurt performance… instead of the clusters, do sets of 3-5 reps with 85-90% of your ramp.
