York 5099 Powerlifting Rack

Hi guys

wot our your thoughts on this rack?
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3355264/c_1/1|category_root|Sports%2Band%2Bleisure|12108128/c_2/2|cat_12108128|Home%2Bgym%2Bequipment|12108295/c_3/3|cat_12108295|Weight%2Blifting%2Band%2Bexercise%2Bbenches|12108302.htm

wot u guys think?,and if any of u happen to have one at home could u tell me how tall the rack is at its highest point?,the catalogue says H=190 but it might not include the lat pull down attachment which I would need

the reason im interested in the maximun height with attachment is bcos it mite not fit in the shed Im planning to buy

many thnx

I think you should never, EVER say “wot.” Or “bcos,” or “mite.”

Now that I’ve said that, looks OK, though not too sturdy. On the other hand, it seems very versatile, which is great. I’m not sure what equipment prices are like in England, but you may be able to get a better deal somewhere else, let’s wait for the UK residents to chime in.

t luks prty gd!

Dear lord I hope so.

This thread is so unintentionally funny lol…

Seriously, the rack looks fine, man…But, I would probably advise you to get a quality gym membership…I know from experience that training at home is not optimal…you will always be constrained for equipment unless you have a real serious home gym set up…
