Features and benefits
Band Resistance and Narrow Pin holes
With the Light Commercial Power Rack, you have the added benefit of adjustable band pegs on the top and bottom of the rack. This allows you to attach strength bands to your bar and create a variable plane of resistance to help bust through training plateaus. For more training ideas check out coach Poliquin’s site. Now on the 5.1 there is the added benefit of superior hole spacing, with 1” spacing through the bench and pull zone, and 2” spacing above and below allowing for precision when selecting your bar height.
Pair of Nylon Roller J-Cups & Sandwich J-Cups
Roller j-cups allow you to safely and easily position your barbell exactly where you need before you start your lift. This is an excellent feature, as repositioning your bar while already down for a bench can cumbersome and even leaves you in an injury prone position.
The nylon sandwich jcups offer full barbell protection and a whopping 880lb weight capacity.
Being a flat foot rack means not having to bolt to the floor (although this rack can be bolted to the floor), while also having a larger contact surface area making the rack sturdier for racking and unracking your bar.
For the 5.1 we moved the curved bracket at the back to be on the floor, to create even more contact on the floor.
Safety Spotter Straps
We source our straps from an actual tow strap factory and they’re rated to 4,400lbs weight capacity, these straps will save your bar when doing hang cleans/pin pulls/lockout presses and are the next step up in safety. By setting the straps higher on the benching end, it creates a safe spot to dump on the bench, without interfering with your range of motion.
Straps are also ideal for those training in sound sensitive gyms. Never wake up your kids or neighbours again when you miss a squat, as the safety straps are super stealth. Our latest upgrade features an easy adjust system for quick height changes. The latest model the straps are white, as displayed in the main image.
A Summary of What a Power Rack is and Why One is Essential in Your Gym.
A power rack, also known as a power cage, or squat rack, allows you to efficiently and safely perform a number of barbell exercises. Our power racks have adjustable j-hooks that allow you to set the height of the bar, for example, setting them to a squat height or bench height, and safety catches that prevent the weight from going beyond a certain point. Here is a breakdown of the major benefits realized from using the light commercial power rack.
No Need for a Spotter
If you train alone, it’s imperative that you do so safely. When exercising there should never be any hesitation in dumping a loaded bar. Your safety is the number one priority. The safety catches allow you to do this, saving your health, and preventing any serious damage to your floor.
Target a Specific Range of Motion
Since you can adjust the safety bars to any height, power racks give you the ability to precisely train any part of your lift. For instance, if you want to work on the top part of your deadlift pull, you can set the straps to a specific height.
Safety doesn’t just keep you from getting hurt; it creates the peace of mind that comes from that. That is, you can add that extra weight to the bar or attempt to push through one more rep because you don’t need to worry about getting pinned under the barbell.
Wide Range of Exercises
Bench, squat and chin ups are the main exercises you can do, and by adding the optional cable attachment you can do triceps press downs, lat pulldowns, seated rows and more.
