can I still make progress with this routine?

Ive been doing a slight variation of frankie ny's routine for last 3 months or so with my main goal being to add mass and have made good gains-:

present routine=
push- weighted pushups, milatary press

pull- deadlift,close grip chins, bent over row

legs/abs- squats, sldl, weighted crunches

using 4x6 rep range

But i hit a problem with squats in that i can no longer perform them safely on my own. I've tried doing front squats but now these are becoming very awkward to get the bar on to my shoulders and then down again safely. I also have no room for a power rack or squat stand. The BIG QUESTION is can i still make progress without squatting using this routine instead?? I can now though perform dips at home.


push

chest dips, weighted press ups or flat bench, close grip bench

pull

deadlift, close grip chins, bent over row

legs/abs

SLDL, weighted crunches

What do you reckon guys and girls?

    You could try doing hack squats with a barbell they are a bit awkward to do but you could give them ago.
    Squat down and pick the barbell up behind your back so it hangs at the back of your legs.

    ive experimented with hack squats before but find them very awkward to perform.

    Maybe I should build a new shed to house a power cage, hmmm

    They are definately awkward. Stick with them though, they always feel awkward when I do them but they set my quads on fire!
