I'm currently on the lookout for a bench, with a rack for a barbell, plus spotter catchers. Nothing too fancy, and with an emphasis on low weight. I have found three which interest me, but each have certain drawbacks.
Firstly I came across the Bodymax CF450. This is exactly the type of equipment I am looking for, but, as of yet, I cannot find info on how heavy it is. That may be an issue as I have to locate my equipment in my room upstairs.
Next I found a thread on another forum discussing the Rogue R3 Power Rack. An excellent choice in terms of saving space, but again, I think this is probably going to be too heavy.
Lastly, the Powertec Half Rack. I believe this weighs something in the region of 65kg. Would this be too much for an upstairs bedroom? It certainly looks very interesting.
That's what I have so far. I'm not finding much with the spotters, and a lot of the equipment I am finding is on the heavy side, which is understandable. Is there anything else out there that would be more appropriate? Or is any of the above, in your opinion, okay to have in my room? I'm very paranoid about coming through the ceiling, lol. Also, I don't want to be doing anything like dead-lifts or squats if that helps.
