Power Racks & Cages
About our Power Racks & Cages
As far as weight training goes, there are very few things out there that can rival the mighty power rack. Power racks and squat cages give you the very fundamentals of what it takes to build muscle and lift well. They give you the barebones support that you need to do it on your own. They're just awesome, and if you're making a home gym, they are not one to miss out.
So, what is it that makes power racks so awesome? Power racks, or squat cages as they're also known, do just what you need them to. Nothing more, nothing less. They give you the support you need to do huge strength training compound lifts form the comfort of your own home. How? They have safety pegs to make sure that your lift can only go as far as you need it, and if you're pushing yourself to your limits, it's there to make sure you do it safely without compromising the lift. Your motion range is uninhibited, meaning you're still supporting yourself and using every muscle you can. That's the beauty of the power rack.
Power Rack Features
It sounds a lot like a power rack is just a rack, but it’s so much more than that. The racking side of things means that if you need to support to drop a weight or need to push yourself to places you didn't know possible, you can, but it's so much more than that too. You can really make them your own, with features like pull up bars, tricep dip handles, pull down bars, cross cabling and low high pulleys all giving you the freedom to do a massive full-body workout. That's something that's near impossible to get anywhere else.
Power Rack Sizes
With all of these awesome features making them capable of so much weight lifting potential, the size of the power rack is definitely something we need to look at. As you might expect, they can get pretty huge, but that depends entirely on what you need from them. Take a look at what you have to work with and go from there. They can be huge cages for you to have massive workouts in, but a lot of the time, they can be compact too. (We even have folding power rack options if you want to be even more savvy with your space).
Power Rack Prices
The last point to look at in buying your new weight lifting partner is the price tag. That alone can tell you a lot about your machine. They can range anywhere from £200 to £1500, and that has a huge impact on the kit you're getting. The cheaper options are ideal for beginners who are new to lifting so that they can find their feet while still being able to do the iconic fundamental lifts. The bigger pieces are the more costly, but you know exactly what you're paying for. They come with all kinds of features like we looked at earlier, and you can only really get them from the best equipment (plus they have a HUGE weight limit too).
