I don't have a barbell, but I do own an EZ curl bar, can I use that to do deadlifts? And I use dumbbells to bench press, can I also do squats with them? I know it probably isn't optimal but I'm not training for anything serious, just a little pick-me-up for a surf vacation in January. I keep reading wukka say how squats and deadlifts are the most important exercises, so I was thinking even doing lame ones is better than nothing at all.
I don't think an Ez curl bar would be able to hold enough weight. And yes you can squat while using dumbells.
