    Half Racks

    Half Racks are one of the most versatile and important pieces of equipment in any commercial, home or garage gym. Fitness Factory offers Half Racks that are ideal for seated, standing and lying free weight barbell exercises including bench press, squats, overhead press, rack pulls, rows, shrugs, and many more. That’s the beauty of having a Half Rack - you can safely perform all of the lifts that count.

    1. Structure and Design:

      • Sturdy Construction: Half racks designed with durable materials like steel or aluminum, ensuring stability and long-lasting use.
      • Compact Size: These racks are designed to occupy less space compared to full-size power racks, making them suitable for home gyms or limited space environments.
      • Adjustable Height: Many half racks offer adjustable uprights, allowing you to customize the height according to your exercise needs.
    2. Safety Features:

      • Safety Spotter Bars: These horizontal bars are placed at specific heights to catch the weight in case you can't complete a rep, providing added safety during exercises like squats or bench presses.
      • J-Hooks or Safety Arms: These attachments act as a secure resting point for the barbell, preventing accidental slips or falls during exercises.
      • Solid Base: Half racks often have a stable base with rubberized or non-slip feet to ensure stability and prevent any wobbling during workouts.
    3. Attachments and Accessories:

      • Pull-Up Bar: Some half racks come with an integrated pull-up bar, allowing you to perform various upper body exercises like pull-ups, chin-ups, or hanging leg raises.
      • Plate Storage: Certain half racks have built-in pegs or holders to store weight plates, keeping your workout area organized and easily accessible.
      • Band Pegs or Resistance Band Compatibility: These racks may feature additional pegs or attachments to secure resistance bands, enabling you to incorporate variable resistance training into your workouts.
    4. Customization and Versatility:

      • Modular Add-Ons: Some half racks offer the option to expand or attach additional accessories, such as dip bars, landmine attachments, or cable pulley systems, increasing the range of exercises you can perform.
      • Adjustable Features: Look for racks that provide adjustable attachments, such as J-hooks or safety spotter bars, allowing you to optimize the rack to your specific exercise preferences.
    5. Weight Capacity and Load Bearing:

      • Maximum Weight Capacity: The rack's stated weight capacity determines the maximum load it can safely support, including your bodyweight and any additional weights used during exercises.
      • Stability and Load Distribution: Racks with wider bases or additional support beams are designed to distribute the weight more evenly, enhancing overall stability and load-bearing capacity.
