I am contemplating the possibility of having to move my home gym to the basement for a winter. In the garage I have a generous 10 foot ceiling (when the garage door is down) and 96 square feet of floor space.
In the basement, I would have 8 foot ceilings which is fine for squat, bench and deadlift, but would not really work for overhead stuff. From the ground I could still do cleans. Reviewing the last month of weeks of workouts, I would be missing pull-ups, jerks, push press, thrusters, wall ball shots and ring dips.
I feel like the best squat stand would be the Raptor Rex Series featuring 3"x3" 11 gauge steel, 48"x48" footprint and 75" height. $325 for the rack and another $135 for the spotter arms.
Another fun option would be the La Junta Yoke. The 75" Yoke is $425, adding spotter arms, dip bars, bumper storage, etc would jack up the cost considerably.
I really do not need more gym equipment and at $460, probably $500 with tax, I am looking at 3 years of Planet Fitness membership and 1 year at BeStrong Strength and Conditioning. However long term, I would like to have a squat stand and pull-up bar instead of a foldaway rack.
