    Substitution for excersizes due to equipment

    I soon will be switching to the F5 U/L program but I am unable to do a few leg exercises due to a lack of certain machines and I was wondering what good alternatives would be for them.

    These exercises are weighted back extentions, leg press, and leg extentions.

    For leg press I could do front squats but idk if that is ideal right after back squatting and doing some form of lower back work.
    For leg extentions I could do step ups possibly?
    Also could I do rear foot elevated split squats instead of lunges possibly?
    Thank you

    Leg press -> behind the leg barbell hack squat. Be sure to keep your torso as upright as possible. If the bar hits your legs, it's because you are leaning forward.

    Leg extension -> sissy squat
