What's the ceiling height? I highly recommend a half rack over a squat rack.

Damn that's short. The rack we sell at my work is under 6'. Do a search for half racks. I'm sure you'll find them without any issue.

How do you plan on squatting if the ceiling is 6 feet?

my suggestion:
get a saw, cut a hole.

So are other people on this site. But what does that have to do with your search for a squat rack?

what do you think is a decent price to pay for a half rack is?

Keith

Depends on the quality of it. It really just comes down to buying one. Look for one that has the proper adjustments you'll need to have and that's rated for at least 1000+ lbs which almost all of them are.

Damn, when I rebuild my home gym, I'm getting one of those half racks. Always wanted one before but my ceiling was only 7' tall. I think the only benefit of getting a full rack as opposed to that is having chinup bar on the top.

EDIT: Oh yeah, no top for bands either.

That's a squat rack, not a half rack. Are you back for getting just a squat rack again?

just get a power rack and a bench, you're all set that way. If you're going to buy something, do it right the first time

Power rack and bench is the way to go. If you want to get crazy, you can even get one with a lat stack.
