    I have seen power racks of the traditional kind (four posts, you do your squats inside of them) made from large wooden posts. Then you can have your safety pins and even a pull-up bar overhead.

    You don't have to tell me about a day of total rest. I might slack and make it two. But anyway, thanks for the input, I will report back in a little while.
