A power rack is a big piece of equipment that only the tried and true should purchase and use. It’s for those big heavy duty workouts. This is where pumping iron gets serious as the user will be handling big weights and to do that, needs a platform to hold the weights and take the punishment. A power rack takes up a good deal of space and isn’t portable. It doesn’t have monitors and other bells and whistles, but does provide for the real deal workouts that the big and the bold enjoy. It’s great for novices too. They’re well worth the investment and last for years. Here then is the list of the best 5 power racks.
