Benefits of the Manticore 3 x 3 Inch Half Rack

    This 4 post Half Rack is the Perseus of all rack configurations and a beautiful love child of our 4 Post Rack and Squat Stand. If you want your rack to outlast heavy squats, handle weighted pull-ups, and withstand you bench pressing Medusa (pics or it didn’t happen), this is the rack to get. The flat foot design maximizes stability, and with the option to use the rear uprights for weight plate storage, you can save valuable floor space. Who’s the hero, now?
    Don’t let brand limitations hold you back! Like our Hydra racks, the uprights of our Manticore 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 rack attachments freely without swearing your undying fealty to one brand — Now that’s customization! Just be sure to ask your oracle (Hey, Alexa!) and confirm compatibility BEFORE you start the mix-and-match fest, capiche?
    Customized racks are the best things since personalized sub sandwich shops, and they don’t even have that weird smell. Choose a pre-made design or craft your set-up to your personal taste. Create a bulk order now or build out your home gym over time — the choice is yours. Add some bolt-on plate pegs, a lat pulldown, and some extra pickles sandwich j-cups, just to round out the metaphor. Please?

More LEGENDARY Features of the Manticore 3 x 3 Inch Half Rack

No Floor Bolts Required

Flat feet may be a bad thing when combatting plantar fasciitis (ouch), but they’re THE BEES KNEES when it comes to home gyms. Flat foot racks have the distinct advantage of not having to anchor to the floor; simply attach the flat foot, and voilà, you are ready to set a new PR. Take that, fallen arches!

Side Keyhole Slots

Ready to settle for 1″ holes on all 4 sides? Nah, your inner Swoledilocks deserves “just right” all day, every day. That’s why we went with keyhole slots on the sides of the uprights, so you can side-mount your 5/8″ attachments… as long as they’re destined for true 3″ x 3″ tubing — perfect if you prefer the more economical Hydra rack attachments. Now that’s a fairy tale come true.

Laser Cut Numbers

Trying to line up your j-cups or safety straps is arguably the hardest exercise. Fortunately, your days of cursing as a warm-up are over! No more fumbling around trying to guess the right setting — the laser cut numbers ensure perfect balance every time. Now you can go back to doing real gym math: counting by 45s.

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Built with 11-gauge steel, this mythical beast can handle the weight capacity needs of world-class lifters and old ancient-school Olympians alike. With thicker steel, you get even more stability than our Light Commercial Rack, which means less shaking when racking your barbell or while using attachments. Even if it’s not bolted down, you’ll feel that true #heavyweight status.
