    How much lower than my ceiling does my power rack have to be for clearance?

    I pretty much have my entire home gym laid out except for the power rack choice, I got a cable machine, a bench press, DB's, texas power bar, and a good adjustable bench seat.

    The ceiling for the garage that I am using for the home gym is 86 inches high, how much smaller does the power rack have to be in order for clearance? 5-6 inches? I most likely am going to end up having to get it custom made, so I need an unbiased idea.

    Obviously you can't construct the entire squat rack standing up from the get go, and since you put it together on the floor, there will be a point when you try to raise it up that its higher than the height of the rack.

    No, I'm worried that I will put it together and then it will be too big to stand it up once I do. There is a certain angle where the rectangle shape of the rack will be taller than the standing height of the rack.

    Depends on how you assamble it. If you can get some help and assemble it up right and in the spot you want it 1 inch lower is fine providing you don't have top screws or bolts.

    If you assamble in laying down you have to tag in affect the angle when trying to stand it upright. And could be as much as 1-2 feet.

    I have virtually no experience building things (white kid from long island), is it feasible to put together a rack standing up in the spot I want it, or is it extremely difficult to assemble that way?

    the house we just moved from, there was literally maybe a quarter of an inch of space between the top of the power rack and the ceiling. We put it back together upright. Do you have someone to help you so you can put it together upright? In the house we are in now, the power rack is about a quarter of an inch taller than the basement ceiling, so we popped the ceiling out and just have the boards. Priorities

    Okay, so it sounds like its not that bad setting up a power rack already upright, I wasn't sure. Thanks.

    I can have people helping me if I need it, but I do want to do it myself, just for the experience of it. And its not my house , ceiling needs to stay intact..

    The equipment forum hasn't been helpful so far, but this thread helped me alot.

    I want to have a chin up bar, but the squat rack would have to be so small that its just retarded at that point, so I think I will just get one without a chin bar, and figure out how to put in a ghetto attachment, or attach a metal pole to the outside of my garage.

    Small as in height? Or ? Because you say you have 86 in clearance you could probably use a 6.5ft rack or even a 7ft that height should be fine for a chin bar. You can always bend your legs for chins.

    Just typed that out and realized maybe a stand alone bar would be better so you can bring your head over the bar

    Lol, I was gonna say.... maybe you forgot the fact that my head goes over the bar. I'm sure there is some kind of attachment that could work.

    I have a 6.5' efs 2x2 combo rack with straight across pull up bar that really doesn't add much of any height. I have a drop ceiling in my basement and it has maybe 6" or so clearance above. More than enough to do pull ups. Head doesn't go up that much higher then the bar. But like I said in the fam. thread places like edge fitness systems or Texas strength systems can custom make the rack anyway you need.

    I was also able to put it together myself upright. Attach the cross bars to one side first but don't tighten the bolts down completely. Stand it up against a wall and bring over the other side and put them together. Don't tighten the bolts all the way yet just get them snug. Get the rack into position and get a level and tape measure. Make sure legs are evenly spaced and uprights are level then tighten down the bolts. I then got 3" cement screws and a cement bit and screwed the rack down into place. 4 on each post and the thing isn't moving.

    Don't know the other dimensions of rack so,

    sin(45 deg) = x/86"

    86 * sin(45 deg) = x

    x=max height= 60.8"

    So a 5' tall rack might be able to squeeze in. But you will probably have to go on the safe side and go smaller.

    Btw, you can always get a half rack with spotting hooks or an open top sumo rack.

    You can suspend a bar or rings with straps if its a big issue.

    I'm confused as to your statement. And maybe I'm confused as to his question, it's been a long day at work. By other dimensions, I meant the width and depth of the rack.

    If he gets a complete bolt together rack the dimension would be 3x3 or 2x3 or 3x4 at most for each post. The EFS 2x2 rack has two sides that are welded together and connect by a top cross bar. Each side can be stood up individually and then attached.

    Oh, I was just looking at it as an entire entity. Like if it was 60" tall x 36" wide by 40" deep, regardless of the dimensions of each individual post. Then if it was laying down and he tried to stand it up, I assumed at 45 degrees the diagonal would be the longest.

    Is the ceiling finished with drywall, etc. where this rack is going? We have a 7' rack setup in a basement with like a 6'9" (giggity) ceiling. The floor joist of the main floor are exposed and I was able to put each side up into the joist a couple inches. If your ceiling is finished, you literally only need 1/4" leeway for make it work. You can build the rack standing.

    Add a skylight above the rack so it will fit.

    You need two people. We put mine together upright per the instructions and it was easy. I have a good amount of space and I do have a monkey bar also. I posted a pic a couple weeks back of my new set up.

More than enough to do pull ups. Head doesn't go up that much higher then the bar. But like I said in the fam. thread places like edge fitness systems or Texas strength systems can custom make the rack anyway you need.

    I was also able to put it together myself upright. Attach the cross bars to one side first but don't tighten the bolts down completely. Stand it up against a wall and bring over the other side and put them together. Don't tighten the bolts all the way yet just get them snug. Get the rack into position and get a level and tape measure. Make sure legs are evenly spaced and uprights are level then tighten down the bolts. I then got 3" cement screws and a cement bit and screwed the rack down into place. 4 on each post and the thing isn't moving.
    Sounds easy enough, feel better about this now.

    So a 5' tall rack might be able to squeeze in. But you will probably have to go on the safe side and go smaller.
    derpy derp Arian, you think they deliver them already built?

You can build the rack standing.
    I can't phuck with the ceiling, its my parents house.

    The bolded was the only thing I was worried about, but you and everyone else says it fine, so I'm okay now. Thanks.
