Perfect low ceiling cage! Perfect for short weight lifters too!
I have a fully furnished basement with a low ceiling of 81.25″ which severely limits what type of equipment I can have. What attracted me to the Titan Power Rack Short was not only height, but it’s price point and simplicity. The dimensions listed are accurate and that was vital for me since I am 5’4″ tall (PERFECT!). The hole spacings of 1.25″ from bottom hole edge to the next top hole edge works perfect for the spacing options I need to reset the safety bars (which are really solid and heavy) and jay hooks (which are bare metal and I plan on placing thick rubber tubing around the hooks). The storage weight plate stands in the back are approximately 1.25″ in diameter, 7.5″ tall and can accommodate olympic plates but NOT standard 1″ diameter plates. The pull up bar in the front has two sets of knurling (wide cut pattern grips) grooves that aren’t harsh, not light, but I wouldn’t rate them as medium. Without placing any plates in the storage peg, and at 146lbs, I can do pull-ups safely although the cage will wiggle a little BUT only because the cage is resting on thick carpet and not a gym mat. The instructions for assembly are straight forward. They recommend assembly as a two person effort, however I was able to assemble it myself in under 45minutes. You start by assembly the bottom portion which is so stable that you can safely install each vertical pole individually because the thickness used for the footing is very stable and strong. The bolts are very high quality, heavy, with thick internal plastic locking rings on the tops of the nuts – screwing them on is a chore but that’s what you want on this cage. (By the way the four square neck/rounded head bolts go on the bottom.) The four plastic footing ends that go on the bottom are fairly decent quality plastic and may require a rubber mallet to get them fully onto the bottom metal tubing edges. Although you order this through Amazon, Titan Fitness does a really great job of shipping the same day you order as long as you can order within the window they set (go to their website at the time ordering to figure out the window time frame). My cage shipped Fedex and unfortunately they banged up handling it and two of the “T” ends of one vertical tube and the rear top tube were slightly bent. Titan Fitness did an excellent job of packaging, Fedex did a terrible job of handling the package. I’ve attached two photos in this review. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a forward-head on photo because of the spacing limits I have in my basement, but the photos are clear enough to give you an idea of how it works for me. You’ll also see in the photo a 6′ 31mm standard 1″ diameter barbell bar mounted on the frame. That bar featured has an internal 52″ spacing between the plate sleeves which makes it a little tight, but my standard Rogue Ohio olympic bar works fine. I’ve been using this cage now for a week and love it! It’s very stable despite resting on thick carpet. It works fine for my short height. The overall quality, price point and durability of this cage is excellent!
Close to Perfect
I didn’t exactly realize how short this rack was. I am roughly 6 ft tall and my head hits the support beam opposite of the pullup bar if I squat in that direction. I simply put the pullup bar one bolt up instead of having them both in. Safe? Probably not, but I don’t do pullups with my powerlifting. It still seems stable since there is still support. With this bar slightly elevated my head doesn’t even touch the beem now so I have no problem squatting. Especially since there’s so much room to place your feet. It is pretty wide.
Very nice, sturdy power rack
Very nice, sturdy power rack. It’s a great value I think and I definitely feel safe using this for benching and squats. For me, it will work great in my basement, as it is a perfect height. After assembling this, which did not take long, I believe it will be a very solid item that will accept years of use. Overall, I was looking for something that would suit my purpose and be a good value/cost ratio. This fits the bill. For $300 this is an excellent deal, I think.
Never regretting this purchase.
I am very hesitant when buying gym equipment because I often want the highest quality so I can workout hard. This powerrack did just that. The shipping was very fast in extreme snow! It came in two pieces and only required the help of one more person to set it up.
Fit my needs
Provided me with exactly what I needed. I had to put it in a basement with low ceilings, so it has fit my needs. On that point though it has slightly been a small issue at times. I am 5’10” and it does mean I have to slightly bend my head down to avoid the bar when entering and exiting. Also, occasional if I am doing sitting shoulder presses, if I don’t have the bar level on the upward motion I will hit the side top support beam with the bar. I am also finding that as my routine has evolved, I have wanted to add other attachments to the power rack that just are not available for a short rack. This being said, if you have limited ceiling height this is the rack for you. If that is not an issue, go with a full size power rack as it will have more options and more room. A quick side not on assembly. I have put it together and taken it apart several times, without issue by myself. It should not be an issue for most anyone to do by themselves, though it would probably go up quicker with two.
Great for short basements
My basement ceiling is about 80 inches tall which is short by a couple inches for a full size rack.
Perfect rack for basement gym with low ceiling.
I have a basement that is 86 inches in the highest place.
I have put a few thousands of dollar building my personal gym, if there is one product that I do not regret buying is this one, very sturdy, not complicated to put together, safe. The height is perfect for my travel home, I am 5’10” and I can do pull ups, even attached a couple of gymnastics rings to it. Its not numbered but it was a easy fix with printed numbers and see through tape 🙂 and it doesn’t look ghetto… The hooks that come with it a very cheap so do yourself a favor and upgrade. Good product I love it… customer service did not reply to my inquiries… which I am kind of ok with… sell me a good stuff and we don’t have to stay friends but may not buy from you again.
