    Just checking in to add my experience. My whole gym is stall mats. I made a little 3 foot wide plywood insert for the inside of my rack to squat on. I just used a basic oak plywood and finished it...

    I own that particular rack, it has served me well. Keep in mind the bottom (optional shelf) will only sit about three inches off the ground, so IMO it's not worth paying for when you can just set...

    Arnold,

    My model must be newer, it appears my front legs go out longer (would make it feel less tippy) and the horizontal guides on mine are both square tubes (that's where the little numbers are,...

    I'm not considered all that handy by my wife, but I will say drilling a hole in tubing like that is not all that difficult. I've done it more than once with my little 18v Ryobi drill. Make sure you...
