    Question Power Rack? Or Angled Squat Rack?- Which One Should I Get???

    Guys, I'm trying to decide which one to buy without breaking the bank. I know you get what you pay for, but there's some good equipment out there for $250-350. I had my eye on this Power Rack made by Newyorkbarbells- http://www.newyorkbarbells.com./92563.html I also had my eye on this Angled Squat Rack made by Powertec- http://www.powertec-fitness-equipmen...quat-rack.html My main goal is to train legs at home with Squats, Front Squats, SL Deadlifts, etc... I'm an above average sized guy(6'4" 270-275lbs), so I need alot of room. Especially, on something like Squats. So, which one should I go with? Honestly, let me know what you think???

    Power Rack.

    You can squat in a squat rack. You can do everything in a power Rack...and it's safer.

    The NYBB power rack will not leave you disappointed. We have two of them.

    We have the basic $199 with free shipping model, and it accomodates people from 5'1" to 6'3" and 90 pounds to 308+ pounds on a regular basis.

    We built a sumo platform to go in ours for those in the crew that squat and dead wide.

    Right now, I'm leaning towards the $ 259 Power Rack. I like to superset Chins & DB Pullovers on a day separate from regular Back day. Does anyone know how wide the rack is exactly?

    "We have the basic $199 with free shipping model, and it accomodates people from 5'1" to 6'3" and 90 pounds to 308+ pounds on a regular basis. "

    My buddy just received this one. He had them extend the post 9" so he can do overhead work in it. He's 6'1". The added cost of $40 is worth it.
