Benefits of Manticore 3 x 3 Inch Squat Stand

    This Squat Stand may not quite be the Prometheus of home gym set-ups, but it’s the best gift to humankind since fire (sorry, sliced bread!) The flat foot design maximizes stability, and the crossmember gives you EVEN MORE sturdiness during disaster-level re-racks. And thanks to the pull-up bar of your choosing, your chin-up expertise will finally match the immaculate organization of your meme library weight plates. Plus, this squat stand is portable, so there are no excuses for missing a workout at work, while visiting the in-laws, or while waiting at the bus stop. Just kidding! Maybe.
    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 Squat Stand

Wide Open Squatting

Need room to do what we’re sure is an inspiring and not-at-all embarrassing dance every time you get a PR? The Manticore Squat Stand is perfect for those who can’t be tamed by the constraints of a 4 Post power rack and want the footwork space that our classic Squat Stands can’t offer. Celebratory PR videos are welcome.

Perfect Pull Ups

Your pull-ups may not be perfect, but our setup is! Whether your pull-ups are textbook strict, a butterfly kip, or some kind of weird caterpillar struggle, all pull-ups in the unencumbered wide open squat stand space are top-notch in our books.

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 spotter arms 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.

Incredible Squat Rack

I ordered the Manticore Squat Stand with 54" flat feet, 84" uprights and 1" standard pull up bar; along with the spotter arms, sandwhich J cup. If you are Canadian, you are doing yourself a disservice not ordering from Bells of Steel. The quality of this rack is absolutely-without-a-doubt on par with more renown American brands, for significantly cheaper in terms of both item price and shipping thanks to the Canadian Max shipping option. The spotter arms and J cups include magnetic stay bolts which are super convenient and cool, and feel solid under load. The pull up bar width and grip feels perfect during use. My only concern thus far is the sandwhich J cups come with what seems to be a softer plastic than the UHMW lining that the spotter arms use, and has rubbed on to my barbell. The squat rack itself is a beast and has minimal movement while even NOT bolted down. The finish of the product is clean and professional, the welds are solid, and the machining of the holes/numbers are crisp. Pair this with the fact BoS purposely designs its compatibility to work with other companies, there is seriously no reason to spend the money to buy American if you live in Canada!
