Ratings & Reviews
very affordable. max load is 700 lbs. I will never lift more than that so it's perfect for the home gym
Bought direct from Fitness Avenue and have been using it regularly for the past 9 months. Solid build that holds up well when doing heavy weights. If you plan on doing more intense bodyweight exercises using the top multi-grip bars, it helps to have some weights on the back pegs to make the base more sturdy. However, keep in mind that the distance from the pegs to the back upward stands is about 8", which may not be long enough for larger olympic weights i.e. 45lb plates. I recently bought some bumper plates that are 17.75" in diameter and unfortunately they are about half an inch too big to be able to go on the pegs properly.
best bang for the buck
Look, you can't beat this rack for the price. It's sturdy, easy to put together, shipping costs were reasonable. The only issue is that it has pegs instead of j-hooks, but this is a minor issue given the price.
I bought this as part of my home gym and couldn't be happier. It is amazingly sturdy for the price, and went together perfectly. I did not purchase a weight stand (wanted to see what the holders looked like on this) and I am sorry for that. Plan on your own weight stand/tree - the posts are too close to the frame to hold larger plates, but at this price it's pretty easy to overlook. Awesome awesome buy.
Just received the AmStaff DF-1161 power rack this week. Quick shipping (5 business days). Seems like the rack will be more than good for my powerlifting needs. Feels study, no wobble, and you can't beat the price. Would definitely order again from Fitness Avenue
Feels solid, easy to put together, does not wobble. Came well packaged. Great price point. I cant imagine how i would feel any safer in a more expensive product. I wont need a lat pulldown attachment (which this model currently doesnt have as an option) so that didnt enter my equation. I'll update after using this for few months.
Just bought and set up. While the instructions are almost absent it is very easy to set up with 2 people. It is extrememly stable even on carpet and easily adjustable. Now just hoping it has a lat pulldown attachment. Would suggest to anyone.
