Benefits of the Hydra 3" x 3" 4 Post Collegiate

  • 4 POST COLLEGIATE STYLE
    This 4 post collegiate rack is a throwback to the good ol’ days of varsity sports, college campus life, and surviving on nothing but beer and ramen noodles. Like your class attendance, mounting the plate pegs on the rear uprights is optional… buuuut it does make for easy-peasy access to all of your weight plates. The protruding feet add stability, allow you to do band work from the outer uprights, and offer 2 barbell storage slots. And if you’re vertically gifted, you’ll LOVE having the pull-up bar mounted on those 90” uprights.
  • COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER BRANDS
    If you’re a die-hard fan of the metric system, then listen up: the uprights of our Hydra racks measure true 3″ x 3″ which is EXACTLY 76.2mm x 76.2mm, instead of the typical 75mm x 75mm uprights of other brands’ imported racks. By matching the same tubing specs as many of our American competitors who make their racks on US soil *respectfully tips hat*, you can mix and match attachments freely without needing to stick to one brand — hello, open ecosystem! Just be sure to research thoroughly BEFORE you begin the mingling shenanigans, deal?
  • MODULAR DESIGN
    QUICK! Name three things in life you can’t live without. I’ll go first — pockets, sliced bread, and… a customizable power rack 😎 Choose a pre-made design like you see here or build your own piece-by-piece. You can always add separate components later when you’re ready to expand your unit with weight plate storage, or divide and conquer by splitting your rack into two collegiate-style racks for double the fun. As you can see, we put a lot of thought into this… our mom would be SO proud.

More AWESOME features on the Hydra 3" x 3" 4 Post Collegiate

Hydra Rack Feature 1

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Built with 11-gauge steel, this bad boy can handle the weight capacity needs of world-class lifters. You get even more stability than our Light Commercial Rack which means less shaking when racking your bar or while using attachments. Even if it’s not bolted down, you’ll feel that true #heavyweight status.

Laser Cut Numbers

Laser Cut Numbers

Trying to line up your j-cups perfectly can be a pain in the you-know-what. And unlike many of our competitors, we have lasered numbers every 1-2 holes to make adjustments a breeze. So you can easily change your j-cup height after your widow-maker squat set… because counting is HARD WORK when you can barely breathe.

1" Spacing in Bench Zone

1" Spacing in Bench Zone

Ready to settle for 2″ hole spacing throughout? Pffft, not a chance. You are an efficient and optimized MACHINE, that’s why we went with extra precise 1″ hole spacing to make unracking a heavy bar a little easier. After all, every morsel of energy matters when going for that 1lb PR (fractional plates, you da real MVP).

Hydra black Safety Straps

No Spotter Needed

If you train alone, then you know what it’s all about: your own music, no line-ups, and curls in the squat rack. However, it’s essential that you train safely and that’s why every Hydra rack comes with your choice of pin pipe safeties, safety straps, or spotter arms. You should NEVER hesitate to dump a loaded barbell if needed.
