Wife and I are deer hunting this weekend hoping to add venison to the freezer.
Good. Work with the equipment you have. I'm rather limited. I would die to have a GHR station. I used to have a reverse hyper station. I wondered forever what that thing was that people kept setting their coats, towels, and notebooks on. Then I finally figured out what it was. I started using it. Two months later, they removed it. I try to make it a habit of running accessory work for at least two cycles. That way it gives me a chance to master a new lift, or at least make some measurable progress on something. So I would advise to keep things simple. Keep things consistant. Nothing wrong with testing out a different lift or piece of equipment. That's part of what I use deload weeks for, I like to experiment. I don't necessarily put a new lift into my next cycle, but I tuck it away and chew on things for future reference.

Yeah, Rich. Its easy for people to say, "Well, just dig a hole in your back yard." That's why they make squat racks with adjustable safety bars I guess. Here I always thought those things were just for curling.
