Premium Half Rack w/ Optional Weight Lifting Platform Insert -- Bomb Proof (BP-97A-97)

5EP97-6EP97P1 ProdID_3248
Heavy 7-Gauge Frame
Includes Plate Storage
Optional Lifting Platform

BOMB PROOF® Premium Half Rack with Optional Weight Lifting Platform Insert - The BP-97 American Made Premium Half Rack features an overbuilt steel frame and optional heavy-duty weightlifting platform insert to protect floors and equipment. Fabricated from 7-gauge steel tubing, the BP-97 far exceeds the strength of most half racks made from 11 gauge steel. The benefits of thicker steel is a substantially heavier unit weight for better overall stability, less flex and wobble in the uprights, better hardware torquing without risk of tubing wall compromise and increased overall strength. Easy to adjust J-hooks can be set up to 60 high in 3 increments and are lined with hard wearing UHMW material to protect bar knurling from metal on metal contact. Heavy-duty safety spotter bars are always at the ready for any lift and adjust from a height of 19 up in 3 increments. And an optional Olympic weightlifting platform insert provides all the floor and equipment protection youll need when training. It also includes a steel ramp that makes rolling in utility benches hassle free. Bar, plates, collars, dip handles and bench are NOT included.
