I have been lurking a while, and have certainly been learning a few things. Now I would like to build a power cage/power rack/squat cage to get to some free weights. Having not had much experience with these, I am looking for opinions about what options, or features that you have liked or found useful on the models that you have used.
So far I have:
- The height of the top bar allowing for overhead lifts
- A straight chin bar
- Plate storage
I am particularly interested in the type of hooks (how they are adjusted) that people liked to use for the bar. Alternately, are the hooks just a pain in the ass, and if you build a larger rack, they won’t get in the way if you have multiple pairs on it.
