Hex Bar

If you hate public gyms like I do, and don't have the cash or the space for an entire squat rack, this hex bar pretty much covers your lower body requirement for the major muscle groups, unless maybe you're training for the Olympics. As a plus, it centers the weight along the lines of your body's center of gravity, lessening the chances of injury, compared to the straight barbell. Exercises are the common dead lift and shoulder shrugs. Use lifting straps to handle weight above your grip strength, or just work up to it over time and increase your grip strength to those levels.
