If you have access to kettlebells, you could try a KB front squat, but the weightload would have to be way low as they are, for some reason, harder, according to some powerlifters that can press huge numbers with the barbell but are humbled with the KBs.
Thanks for the encouragement and advice 5kg. I can't say I've ever used kettlebells. That is somethign I'll look into.

Thank you jedi master. wendler actually has a 5/3/1 variation for rest pause that is very similar. I think I might end up just sticking with what I'm doing for a few weeks and go from there. I am definitely going to use rest pause down the road, just not sure when yet.
