If you want to work out at home and are looking for a sturdy rack that helps you get under the bar, then this rack is just right for you. However I wouldn’t suggest the rack for you if you are one of those work out at home and one day, push yourself out of the safe zone.
This is because though I have used over 300 pounds on this rack without problems, if you are not in control with your weights, this rack may not be that safe or right for you.
In other words, if you are looking for a professional grade, solid heavy gauge iron gym set, you need to look for a more expensive set. I am quite content with this rack as it works and functions fine.
The rack has two bars sticking out for your stacking plates, and I suggest you do leave some plates permanently on the bar for stability. For added stability, I have also placed a dumbbell rack behind it.
I made all these precautionary measures as one of the ‘towers’ tends to slightly lean to one side as there is no cross support midway. However this does not bother me or the functionality of the rack.
The rack is rather easy to put together. There are some parts that need two people to set up, so it’s better to have someone to help. My tip is to use the diagram provided and lay all the parts so that you know where and how to proceed.
Overall, the rack does what I want it to do, and I do agree that I got what I paid for. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a budget rack.Google+
