And if you can't do, you do what you can.
Couldn't agree more, BTB.

We are what we are in the decisions we make among choices present.

Lock a person in a room without elective choices, where they receive nothing but the dietary and physical contents related to their goal, and what outcome related to this goal do you get?

We know what the outcome will be.

The problem is that we are locked in a room filled with choices, and sometimes one imprisons and enslaves themselves to the context of these choices, and think being locked in a prison without choices is worse.

The personal "Want-o-Meter" needs to be right.

I don't have a squat rack.

You don't need a squat rack, you can still do cleans, and front squats, and back squats after you lift the weight. Additionally, you can overhead squat the weight as well.


When presented with this option, there are still the people who would pez dispenser another reason/excuse to not squat or work hard.

Then there is the guy you don't hear from. He already worked out the isssue, and was cleaning and squatting the weight.

I uderstand the point was not really about squat racks. It is about those people who constantly make an excuse as to why they can't work hard. I don't have time for these people. I'll be happy to help anybody, but don't waste my time.

Why do people even bother trying to pursue this sport if they don't want to work hard. This sport is not physically easy. If your going to do it, then put your heart into it, and really do it. The guy with the excuse probably has an excuse for everything in his life. He probably takes no responsibility for his failures, but will scream, and shout about his limited accomplishments.

I have no time for this, and walk away from them.

Neither did Milo Steinborn, Ed Zercher, or George Hackenschmidt, but they figured it out, and their styles of squatting are named after them.

I never had a squat rack (still don't) so I did zerchers instead.
I never had a bench or any stands so I used sturdy bins, until they couldn't take the weight and cracked on me.

Now I have squat stands and a bench, adequate for my needs...but when I didn't have the stuff I improvised so that I could train.

If someone wants to do something they'll always find a way, if they don't want to they'll always find an excuse not to.
