Default Squat Stands

Hey, does anyone know of any affordable squat stands that do not take up much area at all? Something that can be put aside and not interrupt a small platform area?

we picked up ours from Promaxima for around $200 (shipped) and have no complaints.

I got the Promaximas as well for the same price Ken mentioned. Great stands, but I heard somewhere that they've since gone up in price.

A guy a train with has the TDS stands at home and speaks highly of them.

Brian;

Do a search on the CF boards as this topic comes up on regular basis, though not as much as Milk, "Why I can't do OHS", how many blocks in "fill in the blank", or "how do I get big, ripped, 12 pack, but not gain any weight or fat"

Funny you should ask that...

Here are some links.

http://www.bwproducts.com/fitness/eq.../racks/r04.htm

http://www.promaximamfg.com/index.cf...at%20Stand.htm

I am sure there are more out there. Ironmind is out there but they are spendy.


When I get done hoarding money I am getting the BW ones.

Here are some cheap squat stands.

They are a little awkward to adjust quickly, but otherwise not bad.

I've got the BW stands. They are seriously awesome. Very sturdy, are essentially the Iron Mind stands from what I can tell. They break down to fit into a small area and are very adjustable.
