    Think this DYI squat rack would work? (vid)

    I'm thinking get 4 buckets instead of two, and a few more boards and you could easily make it into a power rack and then you wouldn't have to worry about it tipping over. (Call that $110 instead of $50? idk pretty cheap either way)

    I think something like this would be better and safer...



    You could make this fairly easily with stuff from the hardward store, even the j-hooks (although I'm sure you could buy them cheap online)

    Yes it will work to a degree, I'm literally about to build that in the next week or so.

    I've already built a bench and safety bars out of wood. It's a good temporary fix when you don't wanna pay 200$ for a rack, just don't expect it to be super stable.

    A better recipe would be to stick a 4x4 in each bucket, drill holes in it and get a pipe at Homedepot (or whatever you have in the states) that you can stick in the hole to act as a pin. That way the height would be adjustable.

    Grade 8 bolts are strong, but how they attach isn't. The wood will fail them as it's biodegradable.

    It's useful at a time like now where equipment companies are empty.

    Personally I would find other ways to exercise instead of taking the risk of not using thick gauge steel.




    You can buy a thick steel cage that will support 800lbs+ for the cost of the wood to build one.





    Many DIY people are going to end up in ER's here soon from what I've seen posted online.

    but then you could unscrew the connectors and it comes apart into 4 pieces if you need to move it

    Ok, so you're well above $50 now. Just build a good version and quit bitching about a few extra bucks.

    It would be about $90. Actually below my estimate in the OP

    only need a spot if you’re doing 1 rep max

    but then you could unscrew the connectors and it comes apart into 4 pieces if you need to move it
    At that point you're better off just building the entire thing out of wood.

    Mostly for benching. I'm not really worried about a spotter since I usually lift in like 8-12 rep ranges and I usually leave 1-2 reps "in the tank" because I never have a spotter at the gym anyway. (Lift solo. CBA to ask for a spotter every time)

    If you're only buying 300lbs of weights there's no way you're squatting more than 300lbs at most so those chitty stands will do just fine.
