    Squats are really easy to do with DBs. I would argue, in fact, that they're better with DBs, because you can get much better form and ROM.

    Looks like I've finally started to turn Ronin into a real man.

    Also, using heavy weight for strength development, slower controlled reps are the way to go. If you want to do ballistic power development, use a 10-15 lb. medicine ball.

    I would suggest building a power rack out of 2X4s and such. you could even incorporate a dip press easily into the frame. this is much cheaper than buying one and you can design it to fit a garage or basement.

    See my previous thread on why God hates me. My house is far far too small.
    I could set it up in my back yard, but considering where I live, its not the best plan what with all the rain.

    i love to do 4 sets of incline DB chest, then pop over and do 4 sets of decline. for me, that activates my chest more than any other routine (except compound setting db chest with full range Db flyes). since every person is different, try different exercises and routines to find out which work you out the best.

    many in the fitness industry may say that there is little difference between plyometric/explosive reps vs. super slow reps, but there are some major differences, especially how it works your nervous system. but hey, who knows? luckily, the gym provides an opportunity to try out how theory works on the individual.

    The design team for that bench should be shot. I stared at it for five minutes thinking, wtf?

    Plyometrics are something entirely separate from weight lifting, or at least, they SHOULD be. And no one said anything about SUPER SLOW reps, only controlled reps.
