We have also included budget power rack options, half racks, and more options to choose from.

This list is not for you if you believe you can lose weight or gain weight by leisurely walking on the treadmill or cycling indoors. I believe getting stronger and more mobile is the best policy – and power racks in India are the best way to do it.

Our main focus in selecting the squat racks for buyers is to allow them to get stronger at home without the need of going to the gym.

Along with the power rack, you will also need an adjustable bench, barbell, and weight plates.

A power rack or more commonly known as a squat rack in India is great multipurpose equipment for a commercial gym or for a home gym.

You can do great exercises with it, load with heavy weights and perform safely.

The cost of a power rack or the cost of a squat rack varies on a lot of attachments and build. For example, the price of a half squat rack with lat pulldown will be higher than a simple half rack in India.

Also power rack with a pulley costs slightly higher than an all-in-one squat rack available online.

List of squat rack exercises you can do at your home gym

  1. Squats
  2. Deadlift
  3. Romanian Deadlift
  4. RackPull
  5. Bench Press (Need a bench)
  6. Pull up (Need pull-up bar attachment)
  7. Landmines (Need Landmine attachments)

All squat rack machines are adjustable.

Squat racks are also known as squat cages or Power cages because you can do some powerlifting exercises and do them safely.

One of the main reasons that you should buy a power cage or squat rack home gym is because you can do really tough exercises at home safely.

Easily load up the bar without the need for any spotter. You can do similar on a front squat machine also. But the squat rack design is superior, and you would not need a leg press squat machine.

Top Features of

  • 6 uprights for greater stability
  • Made of 3″ x 3″ 11-gauge CR steel pipe (3mm thick)
  • Capable of 454kg static & dynamic load
  • 7-tank powder coating for enhanced durability & protection against wear

What sets this rack apart from its competitors is its ability to handle any weight you can lift without having to bolt it down to the floor. The 6-Post design and geometry make this rack a must-have for any serious lifter. The rear extension also provides tremendous storage potential with up to 8 weight horn attachments available.

I appreciate the option to choose a weight horn length between 13” and 6”, adding to the versatility of the rack.

If you are looking for a lifetime power rack with excellent attachment options, look no further than the Gorilla 6-Post Power Rack. As someone who enjoys lifting and values a well-made piece of equipment, I highly recommend this rack.

A few words on the other Gorilla Racks with 4 posts and 24-41 inch depth!

For me, I think the sweet spot is the 30-inch depth or the 41-inch depth version.

I do squat inside the power cage and I love how secure it feels.

I feel the 24-inch depth power cage by Bullrock is low cost compared to these but it will somehow limit my movement.

Also more spread the 4 legs are, the more the power rack will be stable.

Prices:

  • 24-inch depth Gorilla Rack: 47k INR
  • 30-inch depth Gorilla Rack: 49k INR
  • 41 inch depth Gorilla Rack: 51k INR

Even though the price is quite less than the 6 post model – all the qualities are the same.

The weight handling capacity of all of them is 454 kgs and for a garage gym squat rack – you can not go wrong with them.

And they have many attachments like dip bar attachments, landmine attachments, pulley attachments, and more.

All of them are costly and superbly built.

Decathlon Fold-Down Weight Training Wall Rack for Squats and Pull Up in a home gym

Best squat rack for small space

The best Squat rack for a small space could definitely not be a power cage. Power cages or full squat racks with pull-up bars take up almost 4 feet in width and length and also there is height.

For your small apartment an adjustable squat stands in India makes more sense.

The horizontal bars on the adjustable squat stands are separate so while not working out you can simply store them in a corner.

Some adjustable squat stands are highly durable and made of high-quality steel.

Yet again, a wall squat rack is the best, simple option when it comes to getting the best squat rack for a small space.

Smith Machine Vs power Rack for home gym India

A smith machine is workout or strength training tool that restricts your bar movements. This allows the user to move the bar in a fixed pattern and do it in a much safer way.

Since there the movement pattern of the bar is fixed, your own natural movements are restricted. Smith machines take away most of the balancing part from the exercise.

Smith Machine in India

But the main advantage of smith machine is safety, if you are unable to move during an exercise you just need to twist the bar and it will look into the hooks.

And main disadvantage will be the loss of free movement.

Power racks or Power Cages or sometimes also referred to as squat cage are similar to smith machines where you would do similar exercises.

In this case there are no movement restrictions, you are in a cage-like structure that provides safety. And there is ample space in the power cage to do your lifts.

Power Rack Squat Cage Bench Cross fit Pull up in 2 X 2 Square Pipe

With Power Racks, you ensure that there is nothing that restricts your movement pattern. You can also set the safety bar locations so that if you fail the bar does not fall on you.

 Major disadvantages of power rack/squat rack India could be this–One, you can not secure the bar mid-range, you have to set it at ease where you have set the safety bars. The bar, you are buying it where with smith machine it comes with it. And you will have to safely load up the bar, check the safety bars at both sides. 

A power rack also needs to be secured with the floor and could be large for some homeowners.

Power cage vs Power rack vs Squat rack

Power cage or Power rack are the same thing and even the Squat rack is interchangeable. If you are heavy lifter or want to lift heavy but work out at home alone, then you must have these beasts.

A power rack or power cage works as your spotter and saves you if any accident occurs.

The power cage of the squat rack is four-legged, has four strong pillars which you will install firmly at your gym room floor. A power rack also needs a somewhat tall or normal ceiling as most of them come with a pull up bar.

Many squat rack also comes with a lat pull-down bar, but I do not like the pulley attachment with a power rack. SPORTO FITNESS Power Rack Olympic Squat Cage

A power rack has two catchers or hookers at both sides which acts as your security when you are doing heavy bench presses or heavy squats. Also, you can use them while performing rack pulls.

With a squat rack imagine a scenario where you are squatting with your 1 Rep Max and trying to do a second or third rep. What if you fail? Either you drop the bar at the floor, damaging it.

Best Squat Rack India

Or go down with the heavy barbell and injure yourself. But with a power cage you have the liberty to fall either forward or backward. The cage will take care of the barbell.

No property damage, no personal damage.

With a high ceiling, you can also do heavy overhead presses and set the catchers at the side as you need. Sometimes suddenly fatigue sets in we can not lift any more overhead, with a power rack you can just let the weight go.

Power rack vs Squat Stand

A squat stand is a piece of home gym equipment that is solely built to place the barbell. Squat stands are also mostly known as a squat rack, as you basically put the barbell there and keep it.

Quick Note
A squat stand is basically two metal stands, sometimes inner connected at the base for more stability. Squat stands can only be used from the front and going underneath the bar. Either you do bench press or squats this is the only way.

Unlike using the power rack, using a squat stand in your home gym gives you some challenges. You can safely rack and unrack the barbell but if you fail in the middle of a repetition, then nothing is saving you. You may damage the floor or get an injury.

Powertec Workbench Power Rack
From a safety point of view, the power rack wins every time.

But if you have a small home, an adjustable squat stand is your best bet. While a power cage might take 10 sq feet place, a squat stand takes only half. But a some squat stands may be larger.

If you want to do Olympic lifts like clean and jerks, snatches then power rack might not be a good idea. Power rack may hinder your free movements while doing these lifts. In that case a squat stand may work very well. And using snatch or clean and jerk you are not going to lift too heavy either.

But when doing the exercises in front of a power rack you can use it as a place to rack the barbell. It will act as a squat stand then while you do Olympic lifts.

Power racks also have a huge capacity to store weight plates very neatly. Best of everything I would say.

And it all comes down to space, budget and exercise type.

If you have enough space, an entire 120-150 sq feet room for your home gym, then get a power cage. Otherwise, you might want to stick to adjustable squat stands. Or you can only do dumbbell moves.

If the budget does not matter, you might as well get both. Or a huge power cage with multiple attachments like monkey bar, landmines, everything. You will need a large area for that.

If you are into traditional raw strength development workouts like 5 X 5 doing heavy lifts with bench press, squats then you might want to consider power rack. Or if you are a newbie but want to go heavier then also consider a power cage. But if you mostly do dynamic moves like clean and press then a squat stand might suit you well.

Also note
The type of barbell you use, most squat stands in India does not support the Olympic 7 feet barbell. Unless the feet of the squat stand can be separated and that makes the stand not so stable for Olympic bar grade weights.

Most power cages or racks support any standard Olympic barbell.

Power rack vs Half rack

Remove the front two iron/steel pillars half and you get a half power rack(wiki) or a half rack. A half rack provides less safety to inexperienced lifters. You do not have the luxury to fall at every side if you should fail to lift the weight. But half power rack misses some steel so it is less costly and takes less space in your home.

If you are experienced in lifting heavy then you may go for a half rack, half racks also allow some more freedom while doing dynamic movements. Some half-squat rack comes with lat pull down and almost every half squat rack comes with a pull up bar.

I would recommend you to get Full power rack for all possible workout maneuver. With a full power rack you should not have any issues with active and passive squat-stand maneuver at all. This will give you the maximum muscle gain.

How to choose a squat rack home gym India

Quick tips for choosing a squat rack for your home gym – 

  1. Squat Stand – Minimum safety, lowest cost
  2. Half Rack – Safe, costlier than squat stand, not many attachments.
  3. Full squat rack or Power cage – Costly, Safe, Many attachments thus most versatile.

Among these 3 types of power rack the power cage will take up most of the space in your home gym, and it is more versatile than others.

Regarding materials, look for good welding around the joints, and look for steel used. In India in the budget segment, they use around 1-inch thick steel.

And I would recommend the most versatile well built power rack.

Safety, Attachment capability and durability should be your key sets to watch before you buy a power rack.

Also to keep the power rack rust free you can opt for a powder coat finish as well. A powder-coated power rack with a sturdy frame will also have a high weight capacity.

Yo Friends, this is Samarjit! A skinny guy who is building his tiny home gym.

I have successfully gained 10 kgs in 10 months going to commercial gyms. And I have been working out on and off for about 10+ years now.

I have gone swimming, done martial arts, Olympic lifts and body-building-type workouts!

I canceled the gym subscription as I was more into making my home gym for workouts. And getting ready, then getting my cycle and ride to the commercial gym seemed a drag after 10 hours in the office.

Thus, I needed a home that I could access at any moment!
And I started building my home gym!

I had to research a lot to build my home gym and decided to share effective, budget-friendly home gym machines, and nutrition to buy as per your goals here in homegymindia.in
