I’ve been trying to set up a gym in my garage, with limited space (no room for a proper rack or power cage).
My biggest issue right now is squat safety. A few companies sell free-standing “spotter catchers”, but on closer inspection even the “heavy duty” ones seem to be rated at around 100kg (220 lbs). Now, I don’t think of myself as strong, but I already routinely squat that much.
Someone suggested sawhorses. I find that my local B&Q (equivalent Home Depot) will sell me “budget sawhorses” made of plastic for Â£20 ($35) - and these are rated at 340kg (over 700lbs)!!!
Something is out of whack here. I’m tempted by the cheap sawhorses, but don’t want to kill myself. Does anyone have any experiences to share?
