Since we are on this topic, what do you guys think of the Body Solid Powerline Power Rack #PPR200X and the Body Solid Flat Incline Decline Bench #GFID31. The only problem is what can one do for core exercises. I really need to get my core back into shape since I have been neglecting it.

never tried seen a powerline in action, personally though id buy the NY barbell stuff since we know they hold up, cause BTB did that vid of him squatting 500 in it.

as for core exercises theres plenty you can do, for super strong abs try weighted incline sit ups. or try planks for the inner core. or of course deadlifting and squating. You have to have a strong core to squat 500ibs or deadlift that much

I modified my exisiting power rack to handle alot more. When I get enough extra money together I will build my own version of what I think a power rack should be. heavy duty and built to last.

I was at Gold's Gym several years ago and had 515 on the squat bar and when I was done with my set I was racking the bar and lost my balance so I racked the bar with force to get rid of it. The vertical uprights in the rear of the power rack got bent a little. It used 3" square 11 gauge tubing.
Thats is what we refer to as shock factor. Just because a power rack may be capable of holding 1000# does not mean it can be rated at 1000#. On my home made rack I am using 3" square tubing with .250 wall thickness. It is virtually unbreakable.

Nice work.


Yes I personaly would invest in Body Solid or Tuff Stuff. Not sure if Hammer Strength makes home stuff but Life Fit is made by H.S., For a home gym most defonitly something of this quality with heavey weights for the safty. In the long run worth every penny. I started out with Sear stuff back in the day and they don't honor the worratie when they find out you use it more than 3 hours a week.
