There are only two at my gym, and there is typically someone squatting most days I'm there. I wouldn't want to take that space up for benching.

Good idea. I've got a pair floating around here somewhere. I just gotta find em

for the 20 rep squat better to start of light, just add 5lbs each time you hit 20.
I would prefer to do BB bench. I need to just get more comfortable with asking for a spot. I had a bad experience a long time ago, and I guess it stuck. (I asked for a spot from someone and the reply was, "you need a spot for that? sad....")

As for squats, I've been doing low box squats for a safety net. It still allows me to go below parellel. Is it more effective with or without?
