When it comes to powerlifting, you shouldn’t overlook such complex equipment as power racks. And while they tend to have a basic set of features, the rack from this review is truly multi-functional.
So, from the name, it’s already clear that we’re going to take a closer look at the Valor BD-7 cage.
The main feature of this stand is stability. Firstly, this is achieved due to the heavyweight, and secondly, due to the strong fastening of all adjacent elements. By the way, the manufacturer supplies very detailed instructions and all the necessary tools for assembling even the simplest rack model.
In terms of physical characteristics, the rack has fairly optimal dimensions of height and width. And what’s more, there is even a dedicated storage space for Olympic discs. You can use a set of additional staples to avoid storing your inventory on the floor.
Let’s talk about a set of exercises. First, you have all the bindings you need to do the low downs, bench press, seated press, pull-ups, etc. The planks are easy to move and vary among themselves to expand the range of exercises. For ease of orientation, the manufacturer has provided bright marking of numbers.
Thus, the key feature of this bar is versatility. However, we must warn you that its maximum lifting capacity (with the bench press sleeve position) is approximately 750 lbs. So don’t count on super-heavy powerlifting. Home gyms, on the other hand, hardly need more professional equipment.
