The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Cheap Squat rack

    Anyone know some online place to get a cheap squat rack?
    Not a power rack, just a safe, cheap squat rack.

    Any clue how much that holds? Looks a little dangerous.

    Build one, doesnt have to be out of steel. Make it out of wood. Use some 4x4's. My brother and I have built some of our "equipment", it isnt the normal squat rack but it serves the purpose (and we also use it for ALL cable work, will get a pic soon). We would do it differently next time and make the rack along with our pulleys and pullup bar. The point is it can be done, it wont fuk up your house, and is very inexpensive.
