As of now I have never used a squat rack so I really don't know what I'm talking about, if this question is completely idiotic please let me know. Anyways, I'm looking for squat racks for my home gym and I came across the "PowerLine PSS60X Squat Fitness Gym Rack" on Amazon. It looks rather low for a squat rack, is it adjustable? Also, if someone could recommend a squat rack around that price range or lower that would be great too.
Thanks in advance

How to Use this Squat Rack?

On that page, it says that the supports adjust from 30 to 60 inches. So, the maximum height is five feet which is probably high enough to function as a squat rack. (It depends upon how tall you are...)
That said, you should really look for something else. That rack has no spotting arms and is, therefore, not a safe solution.
Look for a power rack instead. Check Craigslist in your area; you should be able to find a used one that's within your budget.
You should spend some time reading the Power Rack Sticky. This will help you evaluate the various used racks that you might find.--- Equipment Crew #35 ---
