    power tower vs t bar row machine..help?



    vs



    i will be buying one of these this week(brand doesnt matter)which do you think would benefit me more?

    i currently own just free weights,bench,bars,plates,dumbells,ect

    im leaning towards a power tower because i dont need that machine for dead lifts or shrugs just t-row(i currently do back exercises with dumbells)but i have nothing to do pull ups or dips with.

    what would you do?

    You can do t-bar rows with just a corner and a barbell you don't need any special machine at all.

    A tower allows pull-ups, dips, leg raises, and extended ROM push-ups. This is the far more useful piece.

    Depends on price. I'd probably just get one of those door hanger things for pullups or bolt some pipes to a wall/beam for pullups/dips.

    I'd save the money and buy a power rack. I would not buy the first machine at all.

    Here's a post that explains a good old school way to set this up. I do them with a similar posture to a barbell row just leaning back a bit to really hit the mid back.

    At 210 lbs you'll find most power towers to be a bit shaky with you on it.
