Features and Specifications:
- Construction: The BD – 11 Valor Fitness Hard Power Rack is built using 2.5 – inches x 2.5 – inches 12 gauge steel frame. To add more support, a solid steel weld plate is placed at the lower back portion of the frame.
- Support: The BD – 11 also comes with four (4) adjustable chrome weight bar supports, and two (2) squat safety bars, all made of sturdy, solid steel.
- Dimensions: This power rack measures 46 inches (Length) x 48 inches (Width) x 87 inches (Height) when fully assembled.
- Weight Capacity: The BD-11 Valor Fitness Hard Power Rack w/out Lat Pull supports loads up to 650 lbs.
- Workout Positions: This rack is designed to accommodate 17 variable positions varying anywhere between 18 inches to 68 inches in height.
- Add-ons: The package comes with a solid steel, chrome pull – up/ chin up – bar. Its grips are knurled and its ends are angled downward, so as to avoid slipping. To enjoy more variations in your workout, you can also opt to purchase a Lat Pull separately.
- Shipping: The whole package is shipped in two boxes weighing 97 lbs, and 66 lbs, respectively.
- Variety of Positions: Having two-inch spacing in each hole for the weight bar supports as well as the squat supports is a huge deal, if we’re talking about a power rack being able to accommodate various body types, heights and sizes, relative to workout positions. The BD – 11 definitely has that edge.
- Solid Support: If you were to inspect the assembled rack, you’d see a lot of safety features that are either built-in (welded) or assembled with it. It uses 12 gauge steel, which is relatively thick and solid.
- Assembly is a Cinch: Because it uses pegs, and few, yet large bolts (in general), the BD-11 Valor Fitness Hard Power Rack w/out Lat Pull, is quite easy to assemble, compared to a resistance exercise machine.
One of the things that I, and some users, are quite cautious about is the design of the support bars. It uses pegs that won’t protect the bars from banging onto the frame itself. It would have been better if this cage came with J-cups instead.
Buying a quality power rack isn’t something that should feel guilty about. Think of it as a long-term investment that is worth making, rather than resorting to purchasing state-of-the-art exercise machines that don’t consistently follow through on the weight and resistance that you need, in the long run. The BD-11 Hard Power Rack w/out Lat Pull is a long-term investment that you can make, to ensure your safety and overall fitness and well-being.
