Another Quality Strength Co. Product
After outfitting our garage gym with The General rack and 500+lbs of The Strength Co's quality plates, I thought that we were complete. Then I reached a point where I was thinking about needing to do pin presses. At 6'00" and long arms, I couldn't do them inside the rack, so I reached out to Grant. He suggested these. I sat on the idea for a while as my press performance was all over the place, but finally jumped during the Black Friday Sale (or was it Cyber Monday?), as I realized that they would also come in handy for rack pulls while protecting both my bar and The General's safeties. So it's multi-use, not just for the squat stands, and lives up to the quality that I've come to expect from The Strength Co.
Does the job
You’ll need these if youre like me, started weak and want to squat big
Great for All Squat Rack Exercises
Used these so far for flat, incline bench, and seated shoulder presses on The Captain which I have anchored/bolted to garage floor. Awesome option to have more space (further away from wall per my own set up) and being able to go to true failure on all sets. Grant said these will go to 700lbs and I’ve had 400lbs on them so far. I’ll need some time to get to 700lbs. :0) Would highly recommend for squat rack.
