Squat Racks & Squat Stands Melbourne
Squat stands and power racks designed around the squat.
There seems to be an ongoing debate on the terminology between “power” and “squat” racks. To some people, power racks and squat racks refer to the same cage type. There is no difference between the two.
A power rack consists of four vertical posts and at least two horizontal bars, creating a cage you are in during use.
A squat rack only has 2 vertical posts- there is no “cage”, it’s simply a stand that holds the barbell at the correct height for you during squats.
What is a Power/Squat Rack?
A power rack is an essential piece of fitness equipment often used for barbell exercises.
Squatting racks are also known as “power cages” or “squat cages” and consist of a large steel cage that you stand inside while you are exercising.
These type of cages have horizontal safety bars which can be adjusted to varying heights to spot you while you do your workout.
All major gyms have power/squat racks and usually more than one.
These are usually located wherever squatting is taking place. Although squatting is mainly associated with squat racks, you can actually do several different exercises safely inside them, including:
|Shoulder Press||Calf raises|
|Bent-over row||Bicep curls|
Floor space and budget are factors to consider in your home gym. Power racks can take up a lot of space.
All models are quite different, but you would expect your rack to take up a space 8′ long by 5′ wide. You will need at least an 8′ heigh ceiling as well.
Do I Need A Power Rack
It really comes down to what type of exercises you want to do and what your primary fitness goals are.
You have to measure out your space and see if you have the room for one firstly. Racks takes up a lot of space, but it could be the only piece of equipment your home gym needs.
A commercial grade power rack gives you the ability to perform a full body workout.
Look to the table above for workouts you can do with a power rack. This is just some of the exercises you could do without attachments.
If you purchased a power rack with a pull up bar and dip station, that list just doubled. If you add a lat pull-down attachment, you just added many more to the list.
You can come up with more than thirty varied exercises with a power rack, a barbell and a bench.
