hey guys whats up. I like doing squats but i have a question on how i can add more weight. Right now i do dumbell squats with 50lbs in each hand and then 50lbs in a back pack. I don’t like using the backpack because it hurts my back sometimes. I was hoping that i could use the whole bar. But its impossible for me to even put 100lbs on a bar and hold it up because it hurts my neck/ trapezoids. I don’t have anyone to help me put it over my head either. Still i need at least 160-180lbs to even get a workout because my legs are really strong.
Is their a more effective exercise other than the squat or could someone else help me out with this problem
