Any recommendations of who to buy from....and who makes good Rack's? I'd like to be able to do dips also on it.....
I'm pretty happy with BodySolid
If the only thing you are holding is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Lots of "good" racks out there... dig around on ebay for a deal... I plan on having a buddy weld a good one for me (and yes he is very proficient and I will be sure to explain the necessity for quality/strength)
also try searchijg this site a lot of people lately have been shopping for home gyms and power racks are a staple. Good luck bud!
Combo power rack at elitfts is as good as it gets. Crepinsek makes those racks for Dave and Louie. He is very good, tho a bit pricey for home use.
He makes a monolift attachment that is awesome. I wish I had one. I went cheap and got the rack from newyorkbarbell.com, and have mine sitting up on 4x4 posts so I can squat wider than the rack, and also so I can choke bands down. I have been very happy with it, especially for the price.
If you have tons of money get a rack from Sorinex. If you are moderately well healed, get the rack from Dave's site elitefts.com if you are on a budget and still looking for a good rack, then newyorkbarbell.com is a very good choice, IMHO.
If on a budget, spend the money on a bar, then get a good rack, everything else is secondary.
