Reviews of Atlas Power Rack
Review 1: Superbly built power cage at an amazing price
As an experienced powerlifter, I can tell you this power cage is more than adequate for any weightlifting need you may have. It supports a 405lbs loaded barbell at the pegs and railings without any rocking or wobbling whatsoever.
-Tough build. No rocking or wobbling even at heavy weights. Handles the racking of Squat, Benchpress, Military press, etc without any problems.
-Easy to build. Took me only 1/2 hour assembling by myself with only a ratchet + 7mm socket.
-Looks great. The stock pictures doesn’t do it justice.
-cheap paintjob which scrapes off with the beatdown of a workout
-pullup bar knurling a little too shallow
-cage a little narrow from front to back. Doesnt give you too much space to walk backwards when unracking for a squat, for example.
Conclusion: You won’t find a better power cage below $500.
Review 2: Solid rack, fantastic value
I’ve spent the last few months researching which power rack to purchase for my home gym. In the end, it really came down to this rack or the Powerline rack that got such great reviews on the forums. I chose this rack because it uses heavier gauge steel, has a higher weight capacity, and 2” hole spacing. Personally, the hole spacing was ultimately the deciding factor because I didn’t want to mess around with shimming my bench to get the safeties at the right height for bench press.
Shipping was fast and both packages arrived together; both were undamaged. Assembly was pretty straight forward and took about 1.5hrs. One of the bolts they sent was unusable and I had to run to the hardware store to get a replacement. Not a big deal. I put the entire rack together loosely before going back and tightening each bolt down. Some reviewers mentioned that the new models come with j hooks, but mine came with 2 chrome plated lift offs.
Overall, the rack is very good quality especially considering the price. There was no dimpling of the metal where the holes are drilled out, the welds all appear solid and uniform. All of the holes line up perfectly, and the safeties slide in/out easily without scraping. The rack does not wobble at all while doing kipping pull-ups and the bar is at a very comfortable height (for reference, I am 5’11 185lbs). I am able to put the safeties at the perfect height for all presses/squats so now I can safely perform this lifts alone.
Review 3: Atlas Power Rack vs Rogue
if you’re like me and torn between a Rogue rack and this rack, ask yourself this question. Will an undoubtably better made rack make me stronger? Chances are that your answer, like mine, was no. You can pick out minor problems with this rack but at the end of the day it does what it’s supposed to do for half the price of a Rogue rack. Think about what else you could buy for that additional $400. Sure it would make you feel really warm and giddy to have a shiny rack with 1″ spacing for the J Hooks and Rogue blasted on the side but it really won’t make you any better. You can’t beat this rack for the money.
