Squat Racks and Power Racks are a helpful workout station for barbell exercises. A rack is designed to support weight when doing squat variations. Two adjustable metal posts comprise the squat stand or rack, which support the barbell.
Power Racks, also referred to as power cages, have four feet connected by four metal bars overhead. Power Racks have three stabilizing legs and two safety bars in the event that you drop the bar. These safety bars protect you from being crushed by the weight of the bar were you to drop it.
Power Racks allow you to lift heavier. They are made of thick steel and can last an extremely long time. While they are an investment upfront, Power Racks are worth investing in for your home or commercial gym because they offer a multitude of exercise options. With a Power Rack alone you can do a full-body workout with weights. You may use Power Racks for bench pressing, squats, pull-ups, and a whole host of other exercises so they are truly multipurpose.
The Squat Rack consists of two steel stands with one or more pins which can be attached to one another or completely separate. It is used to rack and un-rack your barbell when performing exercises like bench presses or squats. Squat Racks are not as sturdy as the power rack. They do not have as much flexibility with workout options as Power Racks, but are effective options for many of the same movements. Squat Racks are similar to Power Racks, but smaller and less sturdy. Squat Racks are a cheaper option and they are easier to use in a smaller space. They are also easier to move around.
Power Racks allow you to lift heavier and can also be used for pull-ups and chin-ups. Power Racks are made of thick steel and last a very long time.
