Power Rack Mounting Question

Hello,
Does the Rogue R3 Power Rack need to be bolted to the floor?
If not, what are some economic rack options (for personal use) if I can't drill either floor or walls?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Power Rack Mounting Question

If you want to use bands then it must be bolted down. If not, there is some risk, but probably not as much. Rogue recommends bolting it regardless for safety.

There is a monster version but the price goes up.

Re: Power Rack Mounting Question

You can weigh it down with sandbags. I think Fringesport sells a cage that has both anchor holes and an extended frame for bags so you have the option. It's also a few bucks less than the R3 (I think).

You can also lay down a mini platform with 2-3 layers of 3/4" plywood underneath it and anchor it to that.

Westside Barbell gym uses an R3 or two, and they just make a platform out of a couple sheets of plywood...so you can't go wrong with that.

Re: Power Rack Mounting Question

I have the 30" bolt together R3 bolted to 3 sheets of plywood. I drilled holes and fed carriage bolts up from the bottom. I was not allowed to drill holes in the floor

It is very solid on the plywood.

There's also the much cheaper Monster Lite version: http://www.roguefitness.com/rml-390f...ster-lite-rack (WFS)
