Default Power Rack

Okay I've decided my next peice of workout equipment will be a nice power rack. I think in every home gym this is a must.. I'll be using it for squats, pull ups, as well as when I'm doing my heavy bench pressing.....with the bars running across on the power rack it can catch the bar if I can't get that last rep up.....then I'll just crawl out.lol My last gym actually bitched me out for doing that they said it was too dangerous....well that's what they are designed for them idiots. Thanks in advance.

Here is just one of many I saw that looks nice:


http://www.bigfitness.com/powerrack.html

Here are the specs:
Power rack free weight training system for squats, rows, dead lifts, and more
Sturdy cage creates safe location for performing power barbell exercises
Built-in chin-up and dip bars; compatible with high/low lat tower
Supports up to 1,000 pounds (rack) and 400 pounds (chin-up and dip bars)
Measures 44 x 82 x 60 inches (W x H x D); lifetime frame warranty


So does this look like a winner??

Looks good. The holes are drilled close enough together to give you alot of flexibility in adjusting it. Would be nice if they would say what guage the tubing was though.

Live and learn........better late than never. I'm ordering it now. I'm not ordering the lat pull down add on item with it I think pull ups blow those away in every form anyway.....although it still would be nice. I read on several other bodybuilding boards and everyone absolutely loves this particular power rack. Even has a dip station built in......awesome. I'm happy.

Wow you guyz pulled this post up from the past, lol. Actually I still use my power rack when I do not feel like going to the gym especially and mainly for squats and some incline barbell bench press on the inside with self spotters...and it is still standing strong. Honestly these days I really prefer going to the gym as working out in my garage kinda gets depressing...but it is still awesome to have my little setup again for those days where I just want to stay home and workout.
Go power rack!
