Does anyone own Sorinex acme 2010 squat rack?
Im thinking about getting this unit- it is hell expensive- but I work out in the park as well as at my studio (300 sq feet) and at home while Im grilling between turning chicken-
I like (or think I like) the fact that It takes up little space has good pull up options and seems quick to assemble/disassemble,,, but dayum- it is pricey- anyone own this portable rack?
It seems like I would be paying a premium for a good design.
In an earlier thread I was warned against garage gym stuff- but looking at it again as a cheaper/complete alternative.
$700 squat stand? Eek! Get a power rack like Rogue's R3.
Hate to break it to you, but you could build that for half the total cost, and that includes buying most of the welding gear.
In the next few months I hope to do something very similar myself.
you mean to tell me you can get welding shit for less than 450 bucks? I am listening, explain yourself great sage.......
If you can blow money on that then you can blow money on a decent 2x2 rack. Look up elitefts, rogue fitness, SnP strength and megalift (the latter two are private companies, you can find their sellers on ironaddict) and go with whatevers cheapest. From there buy a flat bench and olympic barbell set second hand, and get a texas power bar when the olympic bar you have fucks itself.
Sure thing, man. Mind you, I'm talking Oxy/Acetylene, but you can get a decent little torch set for about two hundred, rent some bottles of gas from your local supplier, spend a few bucks on feeder stick, and be ready to rock. Assuming you know how to gas weld, of course. But it's not a hard skill to learn. If you want to buy a chop saw and so forth, that's more money, but a cheap grinder (which you can probably get at a pawn shop, amazing how many tools you can find there, in various conditions) and cut-off wheels will do the job if you're not an idiot. A drill-press is useful, if you're going to be making things adjustable, but you can pick up a small, sloppy one for about $100 at a big box hardware place, or Harbor Freight.

Will it be as pretty as the commercial one? Probably not.
But for the same bread and a little effort you've got the racks and tools to build things with.
Once I get my squat racks designed and built, I'll put them up on the forum.
Is that aimed at the OP, or me? Either way, I'm sure elaboration would be appreciated.

I cant find any- and the Rogue (for example) is more of a rack you keep in one place- Im looking for portability and the ability to do pullups etc- Im thinking thats why this rack is so expensive. but yeah- with shipping and spotter bars- it is mad money.
Tertius- if your little unit can be thrown in the back of a pick up in 4 minutes- Id like to see that design as well.
