    Nice work Kevin! Good read and I especially liked the stab at Tony: “Not enough room with two Smith machines for those looking to do some explosive calf raises?” 😀

    I laughed when I saw your explanation of how to do rack pulls without a rack. The BU gym has racks, buuuuut their pin heights only go as low as my knees. So, I have to do the same thing in order to be able to do pulls between the knee and floor heights.

    I can completely relate to this article. A lot of the stuff I do in the gym is “different.” I’ve been using steps for deadlifts, but not necessarily for rack pulls, since my gym actually does have a power rack. I use them to start women out deadlifting. Turns out, a bar with 10s on it, placed on just the step, is the exact height of a bar with 45s on the ground. Perfect starting point for women to deadlift. We have chairs in my gym that have legs that are more like rails, and one of my favorite McGyver moves is loading one of them up with weight, and having clients push it across the carpeted areas in the gym. I also went and bought furniture sliders at WalMart for $10 (bite me Valerie Waters), and use them for all sorts of things. I can do anything Waters does with ValSlides for starters, but I also have clients do gator walks with them… “slideouts,” which are like the move you’d do on an ab wheel… and I even fashioned a “slide board” by anchoring two steps with heavy weight and having the client push off between them while their feet are on the slides.

    So…yeah, I agree. People (trainers especially) need to start thinking outside the box and really utilizing what’s available to them, even if it’s not in the way it was meant to be used.
