This was the perfect addition to my home gym. They say buy nice or buy twice. I wish I bought this before I purchased a less sturdy one from amazon. Even without weights on the rear pegs it doesn't wobble and I feel secure re-racking when squatting or benching.
Great starter rack and customer service is awesome. Negative features are not being able to add attachments since holes are only on inside of uprights. Wide bars won't sit level because of the pins coming in from the side to hold the j hook
I purchased this Squat Stand middle of May during this Pandemic. Was a bit skeptical at first since there weren’t many reviews and it was in stock while everyone else has a back up of orders but I figured I’d give it a go for the price. And let me tell you, I am beyond happy that I decided to go with this, shipping was extremely fast and came 2 days in advance of the original arrival date. Assembly was easy and clear to understand as well and came with everything needed and is clearly marked. Overall, I love this stand and it is very sturdy (I am 5’11, 187Ibs) and can do pull-ups, chins-ups, leg raises, etc. on this without having it shake or rattle or feeling uneasy while using it. Has been great for racking and re-racking 300+ Ibs as well. Would highly recommend this product and have also decided to order a pair of their bar collars.
I want to start by saying i greatly appreciated the quick replies when I had emailed in reference to the squat rack as far as stock and shipping. The shipping was fast, the instructions for putting together were easy to follow. Used it today and couldn’t be happier. It’s sturdy and made well while still fitting in my home gym comfortably. Thanks so much!
The Alpha 1000 was my first squat rack and I bought it from Walmart a couple months ago. I have since also purchased the Alpha 3000 as well, to add to my budding home gym. If you don’t mind drilling some holes, you can add a variety of attachments, up to and including spotter arms like I did. If you weigh it down this rack won’t move and you can do just about anything you need to do.
