Squat stands are a good idea. Hell, I have access to a full rack, and often times I intentionally squat outside of it. Keeps your ego in check.[/quote]
Why would you squat outside of it? I am comfortable in my rack (habit mostly) and go balls to the walls at times.[/quote]
Well, I just stated why I squat outside of it. It keeps my ego in check. It would be a different story if I were to go for a 1RM, but most of the time for me it’s more about NOT doing something like that and just putting work in with a weight that I can handle for sets. Squatting outside of the rack reinforces that since there’s nobody to save me if I get boneheaded. Plus, you don’t have to worry about bumping into the sides of the rack when you walk it out.
FWIW, you squat without a cage in meets, too. Although I’m sure you already knew that.
