View Full Version : Cheapest so far
This is the cheapest one so far that I found. Any comments, sugestions on the quality/price. With the bench and olympic weights comes up to $800

that will get the job done
I prefer an enclosed rack, but if you aren't squatting heavy, it's OK
If you DO squat heavy, get an enclosed power rack and squat 'inside the cage'.
I dont squat more than 150 pounds since my knee was broken, I dont go too far so this will do it, but I am still choosing between
body solid power rack with lat attachement
and the previous one, almost the same price, only thing I dont like with bodysolid is that the cage looks small, not wide enough, and it looks that while doing lats I would feel locked. Bigger one is $200 more.

I've used one, I'm 6'2" and it seemed to be nearly the size of the one at the gym, not quite but close
The only problem is doing incline in the cage with the lat attachment, there isn't enought room to do it off the back so you need to take it off the front inside rack which is awkward at first and you need to get the form down to keep the shoulders healthy. It's do able but awkward at first.
There's plenty of room inside there to do the lat pulldown, PLUS, I like the plates on the bar ends which still allow you to do deads outside the cage and rest the bar on the bar ends while you load it.

I like this one better and add the lat attachment to it I had it sold it due to limited space, and my wife prefered the machine style. I just rather go to the gym but this is a solid system when you add the lat att. you can even get the selectorized weight stack if you prefer it over the plate load.
