Power cage for cheap!!!

I just had to share this. I picked up a power cage and a fully adjustable, rather sturdy bench for, wait for it, $30!

The best part? The guy only lived about 6 miles from me!

All the craigslist searching finally paid off.

I removed the lat tower. The thing is actually a lot sturdier than I would have given it credit for.

That is an amazingly good deal. I have pretty close to the same rack (mine is a little deeper) and I paid $750 just for the rack.

Congrats on the excellent craigs list hunting.

Re: Power cage for cheap!!!

great find!

i actually found an olympic bench, your 'standard' 300# olympic bar & iron plate set and a weight tree for $125 this morning. im picking it up after work; i want the extra bar, plates & tree for Linda, deadlifts, etc. i plan to resell the bench; i'd like to keep it but already have a cage and bench and I'm outta room.

Re: Power cage for cheap!!!

Congratulations! Yea, there are some great deals to be found if you're patient and pounce when you find one. Personally I paid all of $80 for a commercial power rack and FID Cybex bench. And paying so little made it easier for me to justify hacking the rack apart to customize it for my space. Fun stuff!

So would you all agree that a used power cage, bench and olympic bar with 250# for $80 is a decent deal?

I've got a chance to get it...considering it.

shoot, a decent power cage would be worth $80 by itself.
