Yeah, I so desperately wish they had bumper plates in my gym. I went for a vacation to India sometime back and went to my old college gym (which I had never used when I was in college, lol). That's a ghetto gym, but in a good way - all they had was squat racks, benching stations, barbells, dumbbells and a bunch of bumper plates. Dropping the bar after presses and cleans was fun

Here after the cleans and presses, I try to lower the bar with minimal control and catch it over my quads and then lower it as I would do for deads. Takes quite a bit out of me, but hey, at least this way, the pump in biceps and forearms after cleans and presses is awesome

I am in better shape here, since there are 9 power racks. But when school is in session and the gym is crowded, I have to do without the racks and lift on the open floor. I used to do higher rep front squats on those days, by cleaning the weight to my shoulders first. You could give this a try, but then as you put it down, you will need to catch the weight on your quads and then lower it slowly, if you dont want to drop the weights.
