    everyone here will recommend a power rack, barbell and 300lbs in weight in lieu of a multistack & doing SS. you should probably be able to get all of those items for under 400... check out some used sporting goods shops

    I have a free weight bench already and weights, but I alss have kids at home that want to touch everything. The other problem is I have no training partner/spotter. I though using a multi gym will be safer and I have limitted space, so could do different workouts. - I may be wrong.

    twm is correct...and if you're worried about your kids' safety, then make sure you put stuff away when you are done. Besides, the kids are more likely to want to play on a multi-gym than an empty power cage.

    A power rack will probably take up less room than a lot of the multi gyms. The idea behind a power rack is the safety issue when you do not have a spotter.
