I'm about to start working out at home. I have 40kg x 2 dumbbells and want to squat with them.
Given I keep the dumbbells at my sides, because of the diameter of plates it isn't possible to reach parallel or any deeper before the dumbbells touch the ground. The maximum possible depth is a bit higher than parallel.
(Also I'm not strong enough to keep a pair of 40kg dumbbells at my chest)
So how important the depth of squatting is in this particular case?
AFAIK, my glutes and hamstrings are not going to work hard enough if I don't go low. But I'll target them with other exercises.
Are there other things that I should consider/keep in mind if I decide to not squat low?
EDIT: Thank you everyone for useful suggestions.
I'm accepting David Brown's answer. I think, given the way my question is phrased, his answer is the most relevant.
But I personally decided to drop the weight to the point where I can actually clean the dumbbells and keep them at my shoulders/chest. I hope this weight will increase over time :)
So all the suggestions of decreasing the weight or using a platform are really appreciated.
