RUssians pretty much only use stands and they're strong as f**k.

If you find a better deal for something similar go for it, but those will work just fine for you for a long time. And get some saw horses for safeties in the near future. Those longer arms lower down are actually safeties and will do fine for a while, but once you get going heavy, they are not so good. I don't risk a miss that might not land on them, nor do I like to squat too close to the uprights to make sure I hit them. Saw horses are cheap too though.

I use mine for squats and bench like Mike said.
