Found a squat rack, but not sure...
 
So those of you that have been following my log (and I really appreciate you doing that by the way)
Will know that I can't do squats at the moment because I don't have a squat stand.
Iv'e found one that I can afford.

its 200kg rated. Thats 440 pounds.
Is that good? Should that last me a long time?
Its only 56 pounds, reduced from 120 so its a good price.
Or maybe I'd be better with a rack rather than a stand. Lee told me there safer.

Here's a picture.

Since they're independent and not together I'd shy away from that, seems too risky. Just my two cents ;)

I'd say go for it. That'll last you a year or two.

I don't know Hunter, they look just like the squat stands I have. Not shaky at all.

they would probley serve you well for a while, i use york squat stands with 150kg rating they are a bit wobbley not bolted down i personly think they would go to 200kg, i would go for it and when your squatting 150 -200kg look for a rack.

Thanks guys

Considering what you said, 2 years isn't really that long.
I'm wondering now weather I should get a rack that can hold more weight.
Just I really don't have much money, trying to buy gear thats future proof.

i would get buy the stands they will allow you to get some decent weight on your back for squats and in turn that will get you growing, i personly think you need to start squatting to make your programe more effective, all i use is squat stands atm i cant afford a rack and have no room for a rack but atleast allows me to squat.

Adding barbell squats is always a good idea.
But you have to determine your own financial decisions.

Get those and two saw horses and boom, a quicky rack.

LindenGarcia18 04-05-2013 03:48 PM

Well maybe I should go for them then.
All I know is that its important I add squats, its just how to go about it.
I'll do abit more research and look around for any other deals.
