    First off, awesome thread!

    The gyms being closed has certainly been a wake up call, and it's clear that I NEED a power rack now. The problem is that I can barely find any decent/beginner ones available. I'm sure that it's because tons of lifters have swarmed the sites due to Covid, but has anyone come across a rack that is available for same at the moment? I'm not aiming to spend more than $450...I'll wait for them to restock in that case. Thanks!

    I'm wondering since this is the Power Rack thread, maybe Racks that should be avoided because they are crap should be added. I mean you can't add every single one but the few big companies that pop up all the time like Weider and Marcy?

    Looking at both Rogue and Texas Strength Systems. Would like a rack I don’t have to bolt to the floor as it will be in a spare room and we will probably be moving in a year or two.

    Two questions;

    - Any other brands I should consider? I don’t want anything cheap I will have problems with.

    - Is 24 inches working space comfortable for squat and bench?

    I had a powertec rack 10 years ago that I regrettably sold and I can’t remember how big it was exactly.

    24 inches working space is fine unless you have lousy form.

    I have an old commercial York rack with 26" inside. I have a permanently mounted monolift for benching. I also have short pins on the front uprights for holding my squat bar. I have about 8" of front-to-back room when squatting. That is plenty of room as long as I don't let my form break.

    I have a tendancy to drift forward when squatting. So I always start a bit to the rear, leaving more space up front. But 8" does not leave much leeway for drifting. Having little room forces me to focus on my form, which is good.

    +1 I am on my 2d rack with 24" depth, this 1 a Rogue, & the depth is a total non-issue for me. The only exception is that it's too tight for a monolift, per Rogue customer service, if that matters to you.

    If you use a monolift attachment, for bench or for squats, then you plant your feet, lift, and do not move at all. If you end up moving, maybe the weight is too heavy for you.

    Rogue's own monolift attachments have about 17 inches extending, so they will fit on their 24 inch power racks, the R3, RML3 or RM3.

    I have mono hooks and and can use them in a 24" space. As mentioned, you don't move your feet so you don't need a bunch of space.

    Maybe so, all I know is what Rogue customer service told me: Rogue doesn't recommend the Rogue monolift attachment for use in the RML-3, which is the rack I have.

    Nothing too exciting, but my Ultra Pro rack was like 3/4" too short to OHP full ROM inside. Cut some 2x6s to make 1.5" risers; can't hit the top with an axle bar anymore. A little cheaper than spending $500+ on reverse jcups/spotter arms that I don't really have room for right now anyway. Still need to clean up but pretty happy with a virtually free solution.

    Good call. I added a 1/2" block of oak under a Titan rack extension so it could be used on my RML-490. It was the difference between $150 and $600+.

    Maybe I misunderstand, but are these to support a barbell like j-hooks? 10mm sounds really small.
