I would look into the weight capacity. A power rack is not something you wanna worry about replacing as you get stronger.
Eh, even my cheap-o $450 power rack has a 1000lb capacity, and my guess is that this is probably 50% lighter than a real test limit. Now, there is basically no way I would ever hit a 1000lb lift. Point well taken for some elite level powerlifter though… don’t buy the rack I bought!
Exactly, It’s not hard to find a rack with a 1000+ pound capacity. So, my point is, don’t settle for less. I know a lot of those Body Solid and some of the rack on New York Barbells only have a 600-800 pound capacity.
The rack is important, don’t skimp on it. I think it’s stupid to buy a rack you will just replace a few years down the road.[/quote]
The rack is one thing that I would be prepared to pay a little extra to have a better product. I don’t plan on squatting 1000 pounds any time soon but I want a rack that will last for a long time despite wear and tear.
I can’t see any holes in the feet where I could bolt it to the ground however I’ll be getting some rubber flooring to go underneath to stop the rack slipping around.
