The Power Rack is also known as a Power Cage, Squat Cage or Squat Rack.
Not to be confused with a half cage or half rack. It is a four-pillar rectangular box that functions as a substitute to a human spotter for free weight barbell exercises, seated, standing or lying down that include: Bench Press, Squats, Overhead Press, Rack Lockout, Rack Pull, Barbell Shrug, Inverted row, Barbell Bent over Row, Barbell curls. Beside the four pillars that come predrilled or punched with adjustment holes, the rack will generally include a pair of barbell lift-offs and a pair of safeties. The lift offs are placed at a height appropriate for the exercise with the safeties placed in a predetermined position to let the user escape the weights and bar should they fatigue or fail to complete the movement of the exercise. Most modern power racks come equipped with a chinning/pull-up bar.
Some power cages squat racks and squat stands are capable of being anchored to the floor for extra stability. Many of these are found in multi-use commercial facilities and are mounted per manufacturer specification, usually by a professional installer. Floor mounting can be done at home in your basement or in your garage gym. Bolting a power rack or power cage to the floor gives the user an extra boost of confidence especially while using very heavy weight during standing over head lifts or squats. It also allows user a stable platform for suspension trainers that are commonly used in functional training activities. Though most racks are not anchored to the ground, users can add plate horns and store weights low on the frame to add extra stability and support.
Many modern Power Racks can be expanded with attachments like a lat station with high low pulley, weight storage pegs, plyo platforms, strength band pegs, t-bar row, landmine attachments, dip attachments, bar holder, etc. to create your personal garage gym, workout room or box to do the work out of the day, cross train or do functional workouts or just straight up power lift.
The great news is power racks, squat racks and cages are versatile, adaptable, expandable, affordable, durable, safe and are a great start to any commercial gym, box, home gym, garage gym with any budget.

|Far exceeded my expectations, the rack is pretty solid and can definitely withstand normal use with fairly heavy weights. The bench is outstanding, comfortable (maybe a little too well padded) but incredibly functional. This is a great package for home use. Might want to consider ordering a couple of extra 25 lb. plates and some extra 10 lb. plates for additional functionality but otherwise by far the best deal going.|

|I've had this package for about a month. I added the Lat attachment (highly recommend), and could not be happier. Any issues that arose from shipping to support questions about assembly were quickly handled by Fitness Factory (Matt). It is very solid once you get it tightened down. I haven't noticed any shakiness in the rack, and the bench is a beast. So glad I didn't go with another rack. The J cups could be a little smaller, but that is really not a big deal to me. If you don't like them, they can be quickly and inexpensively upgraded. Otherwise - this thing is the absolute most bang for the buck.|
