Hi everyone!

I’m chasing a power cage or even squat rack preferably commercial quality but also don’t have a huge budget. And Olympic bars. I think I may be dreaming on the commercial quality but yeah, something not completely garbage..

To be honest $500-700 is the budget

Haven’t lifted in years and will be on Rippetoes for a while so should be suitable for all that stuff.. squat, bench, military, deadlift, military press, and that fancy one. Power cleans? Ha ha it’s been 10 years :)

To be honest a squat rack that I can do Rippetoes exercises on would be better at fitting in my garage.

Located in Inner West
Rip has plans on starting strength for a timber rack if you're a tight kunce but it gets you training now instead of waiting weeks for your commercial quality rack at garage sale prices.
Hahah oi leave my budget alone! I already digged at it myself :)

Thanks though - that may even be an option, didn’t remember that. Totally on tight kunce budget.

Wouldn’t mind getting started!
