Anchoring a Squat Rack


I've obtained a squat rack that looks something similar to this http://www.deltechfitness.com/images/df820new2.jpg

I'm going to need to anchor this into concrete flooring. Is it anchor bolts that I need to use for this? And do I simply drill the anchor bolts into the concrete floor?


Just build a platform for it. Read this article:



I'd recommend building a platform as well. It makes it real easy to anchor it down and you can put a few layers of rubber on it to keep the integrity. I built a real thick one that's paid off (see pic in my profile)


What size/length of bolts are you using to anchor the rack into the platform?
