This guide covers the 13 best power racks and squat racks currently available. We’ve broken the guide down to show the best power rack options for every budget and have rated the options by price, build-quality and feature set.
Every home gym is created differently. Everyone has different preferences for training, including how heavy of weights they use, what exercises they do, and whether or not they train to failure.
For those who want to train heavy and get close to failure to maximize their gains and results there is one piece of equipment that is absolutely necessary: a power rack.
If you want to train with heavy weights at home, you either need a spotter (but typically, if you’re training at home you don’t have one), or you need a power rack. Even having a spotter may not be sufficient if you’re doing heavy squats.
