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:

Bench Press Lunges
Shoulder Press Calf raises
Bent-over row Bicep curls
Deadlift Shoulder shrugs

 

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.

I've made 3 different purchases from NC Fitness, collecting one order in person, while shipping the other two orders. The quality of their products is fantastic, while their pricing is competitive. I have plenty of rogue fitness equipment too and the NC stuff is equal in build strength, quality and finish - though more affordable. I've brought dumb bells, plyo box, H-Series rig components etc. Their freight rates and shipping times are fair, given the weight of the products shipping. Keep up the great work team!

Amazing quality equipment and incredible customer service! I was on the hunt for a high quality belt squat machine and these guys delivered just that. Ordered and it was ready for pick-up a few days later. I ran into some hiccups with being able to pick it up, but the team at NC Fitness swooped to the rescue and delivered the parts free of charge. I could not recommend NC Fitness more! Thank you for helping me take my garage gym to the next level!!

Really impressed with NC Fitness. Good Service and very reasonable prices. Products back in stock dates are genuine unlike other online retailers, who advertise false ETA and blame overseas shipping . I recently ordered some weight plates and a FID Bench. The quality is really good, exceeded my expectation.
Gym and Fitness (Force USA) on the other hand have doubled their prices to take advantage of this COVID Lock down.
Keep up the good work NC Fitness. Will highly recommend.

My eyes came across the NC weight plates within a local fitness business and I loved the camo design and aesthetic. I visited the website and they were having a sale on the plates I was after!

Ordered that night and collected the following day, it was confirmed and ready almost immediately! Impeccable service, very happy with the product.
