any free weights for a home gym are a thousand times better than total gym/bowflex/all that crap. stick with a flat bench and some dumbells

Ah yes, I see the safety bars. Pretty close to the rack though. You could potentially miss. But better then nothin.

It would be really hard to miss. Your looking at the 3-4in sticking out of the end. When you bench your inside the cage and the bar runs a good 3 ft plus.

You guys are talking about two different racks, lol, it's confusing.

BRW, Jayz, I think most of us if we say "rack" or "squat rack" we mean something with safety spotters and all the kind of thing that has been pictured in this thread. But just in case there is any confusion these are commonly reffered to as "power racks". Whereas a "squat rack" could just simply be two upright supports for holding the bar to get underneath.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I would love to have the space at home to have a personal gym. I would definitely start with a good power rack. So many options. Good luck.
