My home gym is in the garage and has a 7'6" ceiling, good for athletes up to about 5'11" or so. A 6'2" freind wants to train with me and I'm not sure how to accomodate the overhead work. It's getting wintery here and I hate to keep sending him outside. Thoughts?

Try some snatches, overhead squats, and jerks with a wide grip from the back squat position.

The wider grip means the bar doesn't go as high as in a regular jerk or thruster.

Load the bar with 25's and pull off blocks, I know this won't work for everything but it should help.

I have a low ceiling and am pushing 6'3''. The oly bars are out. KBells and dumbells are in, try some of the oly lifts w/ those for added challenge. Overhead lifts are tough from the low squat position. Pullups are good in L-sit or knees crunched up using a door jam PU bar. Hope this helps.
