Changing my Squats Around

With having an issue with my neck and spine, figured its time to change things up. As much as I love back squats they are not good for my neck nor spine at this time. I been doing a lot of exercises to strengthen these things, so I would like to as much as possible to keep them painfree. SO, what does this mean your not going to do squats? NOPE, of course I am going to do squats. Just I a going to do them a bit different and not do squats with any pressure on my neck or back. I am going to be trying goblet squats for now on, 5 sets of 50 with a large dumbbell or kettle bell.

The Goblet squats are pretty much like a body squat, but you will be holding a kettle bell with two hands.
Hits all the major core muscles you need to as Back squats, quads, hamstrings, glutes and shoulders. Makes a great compound exercise.
