I'm taking a month long break from crossfit (as in going to my local crossfit) but want to maintain as much strength as I can while doing so. We have a barbell and bumper plates at home. I can't do heavy back squats since I can't get the bar onto my back. Any suggestions on the best alternatives (besides buying a squat rack )? Will doing higher reps (10 or so) at lower weights be of much use? I was able to do 130 lb front squats the other day, but it required hubby to hand me the bar I'm already doing 20 pistols a day too.
