Default Werksan Squat Rack

First saw these at the American Open in December. Fully legit and a reasonable price to boot ($500).

ironmind's vulcan racks are $409... The Werksan is a heavier gauge stock and I like the curved entry piece. i've seen racks for pretty cheap--maybe $250 or so--but the quality is questionable. Others are more.

Of course, if you don't need it to be adjustable, this is the way to go:

Greg,

I'm looking into a collapseable squat rack that I can store in the corner of my apartment. Can you expand on why you don't like the ironmind racks anymore? I like that I can add dip attachments and a pullup bar, and ultimately store is all in a closet or a corner...but the big drawback is the price.

do you know any company that makes a similar design and that has the ability to add dip and pullup bars?

Well... It was unfair to say I don't like them. We actually have 4 of them here in addition to the Werksan ones. They're nice and light so easy to move and store. And the dip attachments are pretty handy.
