What You Should Know
Weight training with free weights will increase the strength of a dieter. Depending on the exercise, all of the major muscle groups will be worked. The downside of free weights are the safety concerns, especially when weight training alone. An individual runs the risk of falling weights and bodily injury. Certain machines offer safety devices, but at a cost.
The Body Solid Power Rack is one of those devices. The design is nothing more than walk though pieces of metal featuring bars and pegs acting as a spotter during select exercises. We did find the Body Solid Power Rack available on the official website for $475. This price does not include shipping and handling. We also found additional attachments are extra.
List of Ingredients
Free standing rack designed to offer safety while using free weights.
The Body Solid Power Rack stands close to 7 feet tall, 4 feet wide and 4 feet long. We found the size ideal for small spaces. The problem a weight trainer could potentially encounter is using the Body Solid Power Rack with free weights. Additional space requirements are necessary with additional equipment. Without extra equipment, an individual can perform one exercise on the Body Solid Power Rack. The product features 18 adjustable levels as well as pull-up bar.
We could not find information regarding the suggested maximum weight the Body Solid Power Rack holds. Although the product is designed for safety, an individual lifting an excessive amount of weight could potentially injure themselves. The positive is the walk through design of the product. This feature allows individuals of any size use of the product.
The product is extremely expensive considering the dieter receives nothing more than a steel cage. We are all for safety, but $475 is excessive. If an individual purchased all of the equipment designed to work with the Body Solid Power Rack, the price could potentially exceed $1,000.
- Provides safety features.
- Walk through design.
- Easy to use.
- Space saving design.
- 10-year warranty.
- Additional equipment is extra.
We love pieces of equipment designed to create a safe workout area. Unfortunately, this is the only thing the Body Solid Power Rack offers to the dieter. Additional equipment such as collars, bars, benches and free weight plates are extra. Unless the user possesses those pieces of equipment, the Body Solid Power Rack is essentially useless.
We found $475 a bit expensive for a piece of equipment that does not offer anything to the dieter. Spending that amount of money equals close to a year of a health club membership where a dieter has the opportunity to utilize a complete scope of fitness equipment as well as speak to person trainers.
