What's up fellas (and if any ladies are lurking). So as some of you know I've set up a garage gym and loving it! I needed a solid & dedicated flat bench. I don't do much incline press work at all so the need for a FID wasn't needed. I knew Rogue was a solid company that made solid and...

So I'm 5'6", and I like to do really deep ATG squats. With the squat racks that my gym has (see attached for similar), I'm too short to squat all the way through my full ROM without hitting the safety bars, so what I usually do is walk it out of the rack completely to do my set, then walk it back...
