About Power Rack Systems
Created to allow weight lifters to workout safely and effectively without the need for a spotter, the Power Rack has a proven track record of success with top athletes, bodybuilders and powerlifters everywhere.
A power rack is an piece of weight training equipment that functions as a mechanical spotter for free weight barbell exercises without movement restrictions. Its general design is four upright posts with two adjustable horizontal bar catches (also called supports or pins) on each side. Many power racks also have accessory attachments, such as a chin-up bar, pulldown cable attachment, or pegs for storing weight plates.
The power rack serves several purposes. Chief among them is safety: for instance, in the bench press, placing the bar catches right above the lifter's chest will prevent the barbell from crushing the athlete in the case of muscular fatigue or other loss of control of the bar. In the case of squats, catches placed just below the lowest position of the squat allow the lifter to "dump" the weight safely.
The power rack is also useful for performing limited-range exercises, often involving heavier weights than their full-range equivalents. These include rack pulls, a variation of the deadlift where the starting point of the bar is higher than a conventional deadlift, and rack lockouts, a bench press variation limited to just the upper portion of the lift.
