Power Rack Buying Guide

Before buying one, check if you have enough space to install it in your room/house /garage, especially the height of the ceiling, it should be always higher than the power rack. Make sure you have enough space above the power rack for your head when you do chin-ups/ pull-ups. Also, don’t forget the space for additional equipment such as weights, plates, bars and a bench as well.

You already know that “ you get what you pay for” so always check carefully about the quality, dimensions, capacity, stability and features of the power rack before buying, don’t let the price misleads your choice. Shorter and narrower power racks tend to be cheaper, make sure you choose the ones that are large enough for you.

Features that you need to consider when choosing the right power rack

  • It should be strong, solid and sturdy
  • It has large weight capacity
  • It has safety system/safety pins
  • It has pull-up bar, dip bar
  • It has weight holders
  • It is solidly anchored to the floor or comes with a stabilizer
  • Cost of shipping and how they will ship your items

Power Rack Alternatives 

Squat racks, squat stands, smith machine.

Conclusion

We hope you can find the one that fits your need the most in this article. If you are not in a hurry, wait until Black Friday sales when you are lucky enough to buy high quality power racks at a cheaper price.

If you don't have enough space for a full power rack, consider buying folding racks instead, for example a RML-3W Foldback Wall Mount Rack , to save both space and money.
