Power Racks with Insert Weightlifting Platforms - Power racks for weightlifting with built-in weightlifting platforms, or insert platforms, expand the training area beyond the inside of the rack so that additional Olympic barbell exercises can be performed such as the overhead press, clean and jerk and snatch. The insert platform, just like free-standing weightlifting platforms, provides a work space for an Olympic bar and rubber bumper plates. Most insert platforms feature an oak center platform with heavy-duty 3/4” rubber deadlifting mats on either side. In addition to providing an unobstructed weightlifting area, the insert platform absorbs shock and impact from dropped barbells therefore protecting the sub-floor and equipment from damage. Most insert platforms will also include a metal ramp making it easy to roll weight benches in and out.
