Our popular heavy duty bench has been modified to include an easily removable bench so that you can now do squats with it also, just like on the (much) more expensive ER rack that we sell, and Eleiko racks seen in IPF World meets.
A meticulously designed all-inclusive competition grade bench press and squat rack.
Like to lift heavy? Of course you do. This is the rack you need, the rack that can handle any weight, and keep you safe. With band pegs, adjustable safety catchers, adjustable bar height and a spotter platform. Meets IPF legal dimensions.
Here’s some reason’s why you should have this rack in your gym:
1. Adjustment Levers
Everyone is different, body size, arm length, hand positions all vary. The chances of two lifters working out together needing the bar at exactly the same height is remote. Now you can adjust it in seconds, without needing to lift the weight directly, let a lever handle do the hard part.
2. Simulate the Competition feel
Simulate the feel of meet day with a rack that feels the same as the ER or Eleiko that you will use in the contest. All the proper dimensions as a contest rack.
3. Save Space
Space is always at a premium in home gyms, even in most commercial gyms. Similar to a cage rack, one rack that allows you to squat and bench in the same space is a good thing.
4. Band pegs.
Band resistance has become an absolute essential when training the big three and many squat racks have been designed to accommodate this style of training. Problem is most bench press designs are stuck in the stone age. Our bench has 2 adjustable pegs on each side allowing you to attach bands to create a variable tension.
5. Nylon Rollers
To protect that expensive new bar you are using. Don't have a bar yet? Try one of ours.
6. It has a powerful design.
The rack handles up to 1,000lbs, enough to accommodate even the top lifters in the world. The adjustable safety catches and spotter platform ensures the safety of the user. It also meets IPF competition specs, which means you’ll be ready for your meet.(meant for use while benching only, always use spotters for squatting)
Customers for our ER brand racks often ask if they can use the safety bars for squatting. This is NOT recommended, the rack WILL flip over towards you if a heavy weight rolls to the out end of the safeties. The StrongArm rack has TWO solutions to this: 1) the base of the rack has holes to allow it to be bolted to the floor and 2) the plate storage pins at the front can be loaded up as counter-balance. Both methods will prevent rollover but we recommend bolting it down if possible.
"How is it different than an actual ER/Eleiko/Bull rack?" We get this question a lot. The StrongArm Combo rack is not meant to be a copy of those great products, the steel is not as heavy, the construction is not as "craftsman" precise. But we stand behind this product completely, and for 99% of those that buy one, you will not regret the decision. Just don't buy it expecting something identical to a product that costs 4 or 5 times the price. Note, the rack does NOT move to the "racks in" position, the uprights are fixed.
The $1150 price includes all shipping charges.
