i'm thinking about ditching my YMCA gym membership, and just putting the money towards a... BOW FLEX!!! just kiddin. i want to put the money towards a power rack, barbell, and plates. any brands/makes/models i should steer clear of? and who are the best companies, my budget is relatively cheap, so it doesnt have to be amazing, my lifts are relatively light (at the moment), so it doesnt have to be an out standing rack.
all advice is appreciated.
