Re: Squat Rack

It looks like a good price (it sells on amazon for $170).

It's rated to 400#

Source: http://www.ironcompany.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=2038 (WFS)

In searching for details, it is also sold at Sears.

I dunno, to me it's like the type of mountain bike you'd buy at Sports Authority, vs a "real" bike shop.

However, given the price and the weight rating, if those work for you, then go for it.

For $100 more, you could get this York FTS from Rogue. Don't know what it's rated, and only you can decide if it's worth 100 more beans.

I'm sure there are some other options, but I don't think you'll find any others at $120 that will be worth it.

Re: Squat Rack

This is also known as Body Solid Powerline Squat Stands. There are several threads about this, here are a couple:

http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=22771

These are a cheap common alternative to more the expensive and sturdy York Press Squat Stands. You may also want to look into Valor Athletics BD-3 stands. Don't forget about Craigslist, I was able to grab these custom made squat stands for $50. They were made by a local commercial grade equipment store that had a manufacturing factory about 5 years ago. Each stand is about 40 lbs.

Re: Squat Rack

Personally, I think that the cross-bar would get annoying and in the way, possibly causing a safety issue, especially on an emergency re-racking.
