Power Rack 5.0 – Light Commercial By B.o.S.
Dollar for Dollar the Best Power Rack You Can Buy.
The best value light commercial rack on the market. Perfect for training studios, home gyms, die hards and amateurs. The B.o.S. Light Commercial Power rack 5.0 is our newest model, personally designed by owner Kaevon Khoozani. The 5.0 includes several industry leading upgrades that’ll be sure to make your training enjoyable, safe and full of gains. The below features come standard:
1 – Pair of Nylon Roller J-Cups, 1 – Pair of Nylon Sandwich J-Cups
Roller j-cups allow you to safely and easily position your barbell exactly where you need before you start your lift. This is an excellent feature, as repositioning your bar while already down for a bench can cumbersome and even leaves you in an injury prone position. It also prevents your barbell from getting scuffed. Our upgraded nylon rollers are especially useful for keeping your bar in tip-top condition.
Rollers are only ever seen on competition style combo racks and Bells of Steel is currently the only home gym equipment company offering roller cups standard on their racks. Check out the roller cups in action:
Safety spotter straps
Rated to 3,000KG static weight capacity, these straps will save your bar when doing hang cleans/pin pulls/lockout presses and are the next step up in safety. By setting the straps higher on the benching end, it creates a safe spot to dump on the bench, without interfering with your range of motion. Straps are also ideal for those training in sound sensitive gyms. Never wake up your kids or neighbours again when you miss a squat, as the safety straps are super stealth. Our latest upgrade features an easy adjust system for quick height changes.
But are safety straps as safe and strong as steel spotter pins? They sure are, here’s a little test we ran with just 1 strap
Laser cut pin holes
trying to line up your j-cups/spotter straps even can be a real pain. But with our laser numbered pin holes every 5 holes, it makes adjustments a lot easier.
Fat/skinny multi-grip pull up bar
By having 1 half of the pull-up bar extra fat at 2 inches and the other standard 1.25″ size, it creates an additional dynamic to your training without taking up additional space. The multiple vertical access grips allow you to target a variety of muscles in your back.
Bolt Down Feet
The light commercial rack is designed to function optimally without being bolted down, however; I’ve added an optional layer of safety as there can be some shakiness when racking and unracking your bar on any flatfoot style power rack. Bolting the rack to the floor eliminates this problem, and creates an even more desirable lifting environment for you to push your limits. Includes 4 concrete anchor bolts.
Band Resistance and Narrow Pin Holes
With the Light Commercial Power Rack, you have the added benefit of adjustable band pegs on the top and bottom of the rack. This allows you to attach strength bands to your bar and create a variable plane of resistance to help bust through training plateaus. For more training ideas check out coach Poliquin’s site. Now on the 5.0 there is the added benefit of superior hole spacing, with 1” spacing through the bench and pull zone, and 2” spacing above and below allowing for precision when selecting your bar height.
A Summary of What a Power Rack is and Why One is Essential in Your Gym
A power rack, also known as a power cage, or squat rack, allows you to efficiently and safely perform a number of barbell exercises. Our power racks have adjustable j-hooks that allow you to set the height of the bar, for example, setting them to a squat height or bench height, and safety catches that prevent the weight from going beyond a certain point. Here is a breakdown of the major benefits realized from using the light commercial power rack.
No Need for a Spotter
If you train alone, it’s imperative that you do so safely. When exercising there should never be any hesitation in dumping a loaded bar. Your safety is the number one priority. The safety catches allow you to do this, saving your health, and preventing any serious damage to your floor.
Safety doesn’t just keep you from getting hurt; it creates the peace of mind that comes from that. That is, you can add that extra weight to the bar or attempt to push through one more rep because you don’t need to worry about getting pinned under the barbell.
Target a Specific Range of Motion
Since you can adjust the safety bars to any height, power racks give you the ability to precisely train any part of your lift. For instance, if you want to work on the top part of your deadlift pull, you can set the straps to a specific height.
Wide Range of Exercises
Bench, squat and chin ups are the main exercises you can do, and by adding the optional cable attachment you can do triceps press downs, lat pulldowns, seated rows and more.
