You might be able to do donkey squats on your chains, but they might be wobbly.
You don't have a rack, I assume?
No, no, no.
Oh? No.
...not to put too fine a point on it, but you've shown up just how little I know about legs exercises. Cheers.

LOL I've noticed. The number of threads I've read on this...

I buggered my left elbow for months, and kept training on it. One day I noticed it didn't hurt quite so much when not doing C-curls. The pain went away, but only after I laid off any kind of direct bicep work for several months. But by then the damage was done; any repetitive elbow bending across my body with this arm will now cause pain that does not go away for a long, long time. It made factory work a bitch.
