Any substitute for bands and chains?

I'm trying to make a routine with a maximum effort day and a dynamic effort day (like westside barbell),  Bands or chains are kind of a requirement on the dynamic days.  I don't live 100 miles from anywhere with bands or chains.  Maybe even 1000 miles.  If I bought my own bads, I'm pretty sure I couldn't attach them to the gear at my local scrap metal  warehouse..I mean "gym".

I was thinking a possible replacement would be some other variation like pausing in the hole for the big movements, or maybe plyometric movements.  Any thoughts?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Just a minor tool that prob isn't needed by majority of people.
     
    However bands are easy to attach. Dumbells do the job. Or simply under the bench for benching.

    so lets suppose I don't use bands but I still want to follow this strength program.  Should I just do the 2nd upper and lower days the same as the first, or would you mix up the exercises somehow to try and replicate the dynamic method?

    Dynamic method doesn't need bands or chains.
     
    Simply moving a lighter weight fast...which is simply going light if you ask me :) So simply do as...without the bands and chains if you cannot use them.
