Okay, so I just read and am just starting workouts from The Female Body Breakthrough. There are a few exercises I have never done before. I am admittedly slightly intimidated by the free weights area, so I steer clear of it and stick with machines or less complicated compound movements with barbells. My biggest worry is the overhead squats.
First of all, I won't know until I get back to the gym tomorrow morning if my gym has a squat rack. I have obviously never used a squat rack and don't want to look like a complete idiot or injur myself in the process. Can someone explain it to me? Next, if they do not have a squat rack, can someone suggest another option for doing the overhead squat? Also, I will not have a spotter.
This may be a silly question, but I'd rather be prepared going in than skip the exercise because I don't know what I'm doing.
