    If you had proper form you wouldn't need clips.

      Place doesn't even have a mirror in close proximity so I can't check if the bar is placed on me evenly

      Go to the sports store and buy a set of clips.

      Take a roll of gray tape along to use it for securing the plates

      Think I'll do some substitutions for squats. Deadlifts, bp, and ohp are still fair game but squats are too risky

        Don't squat in front of a mirror. You should be focused on physical feedback and proprioception, not looking at your reflection for visual feedback.

        I hate gyms that have mirrors in front of squat racks, it keeps people small and weak.

        Do your eyes look like pic related or something? You do not need a mirror either.

    It's funny cause I squat with a home gym and almost never have to use clamps. The weight just stays solid on it. Maybe it's cause I use steel plates?

    If the gym has a deep belt do weighted full rom push-ups. In general, do the weighted calisthenics equivalent if you don't have the equipment for a lift.
