Sticky Thread Sticky: The Official Power Rack Thread - August 2010 version

Bench Press on the Inspire SCS System

Has anyone used a free bar on the gun rack to bench press on this unit. It looks like there may not be enough space to properly get yourself under the bar because the rack is too close to the end of the machine. I would use a free bar and not the smith machine for this exercise. I'm pretty sold...

********* floor mats

Has anybody tried the 3/4 inch floor mats (puzzle) from Amazon? I know everyone here is a fan of the horse stall mats from TSC, but the puzzle mats would be perfect for me because of the small size. The only question is whether it can handle the impact as good as the horse stall mats.
