Bought this for $180 about a month back and thought it was a great deal at that time. Like others have mentioned, the 45lb plates are smaller than standard, which is important for deadlifts.

The designer of this rack posts on reddit and confirmed this is the same rack as the Fitness Reality 810XLT on Amazon if anybody wanted more reviews on it.

https://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Re...B01N4I8FOY

It's pretty well regarded as an entry level power rack.

You can also grab the matching Progear incline bench at Walmart for a bench/rack combo at $260 (scroll down on the power rack page for the bundle option to get that price). Again, it's a rebranded Fitness Reality item and you can find more reviews on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Fitness-Re...B01CR4XFIK

$260 for bench and rack and $150 for 255 pounds of weights and an Olympic bar. That's a homegym for under $500 including taxes, gas, and your last trip to Burger King.

Also $20 Off coupon worked for me few weeks ago. If it doesnt work do a live chat, it's not listed as an excluded item.

https://www.dickssportinggoods.co...am-details

Or they also have 10% off for joining their mailing list, havent tried though
Thanks for the chat suggestion. I did go ahead and chatted with them, and first they insisted that sales did not stack with promos. So the agent told me that she would do a courtesy promo of the $20 off. So my total with taxes for store pickup is $140.70. Sweet. So others can try this as well.

Note that the 45lb plates in this set are shorter than the standard 45lb plates. Might affect your deadlift form.
I own this set that I use solely for bench work as well as a set of Rogue bumpers that I use for deadlift and squats.

My recommendation for anyone not wanting to do a full set of bumpers would be to at least get two cheap 45 or 55 bumpers and then add the remainder of these weights. Bonus is the two bumpers will almost act like a deadlift jack for pulling these 45s off and will also help to keep the noise down a little from metal plates hitting the ground. I know Walmart has some bumpers for a pretty good price as well as Titan if you don't want to spring for more expensive lines. Keep in mind the 45 and 55 bumper plates are thicker than the metal plates of the same weight. My Rogue bumpers are also all the save circumference from 55 down to the 25 so unfortunately I do have to use a deadlift wedge.

Why use 45 bumpers when 10lb bumpers are going to be the same circumference?

That's definitely an option, but you wouldn't want to drop those 10 lb bumper plates, especially in the case of deadlifts where most people can lift at least their bodyweight and even those that can't initially will get there rather quick if it's a part of their program.

Same thing for squats. I squat inside my rack with safety straps and if I have to bail the straps will catch, but I know plenty of people that squat outside their rack or overhead press outside the rack due to height clearance and if you drop a bar with 10 lb bumpers taking the initial impact they will break.

Got this a few years back for like $180. Great set, no complaints. The 45s are not standard height but I have never needed them to be taller than they are.

Damn that looks like a good deal. I wish this was around years ago so I wouldn't have to get individual plates. Although 300 lbs capacity is kind of low for squats and deadlifts.
Unno why ur downvoted. That bar has a 300lb capacity which is very very low for a bar.

I didn't even realize cause I don't pay attention to that stuff. I guess people feel like I'm trying to imply they're weak, but 300 lbs is a obtainable deadlift for most people. It's way below the capacity of any bar you'd find in any gym.

I have Rogue bumpers and even they state that the 10lb bumpers are not to be used as a stand alone. They are thinner and flimsy, you add metal weights on the bar even 25lb plates and I assure you they will flex. Rogue bumpers are already under the impression they will drop, even under control setting them down with 25lb metal plates you will see they flex. I personally would not go under 25lb bumpers if just trying to use as some form of jack.

Any suggestions for a specific rack/stand?
I and a friend both own the Hulkfit Power Rack off Amazon. He purchased around $300, I purchased just under $250. I purchased the power rack to save space, it works for what I need, however we both now wish we had purchased the Power Cage instead. I personally for the reason of being to do squats inside the cage/rack while moving on to do bench on the outside without having to take plates off another bar. The Ethos Power Rack at Dicks is what I will be purchasing, I've seen it in store and like the setup and construction of it. Pricier than what you'll find online with some other power rack/cage, but meets my needs, otherwise I would just go for the Hulkfit Power Cage that was linked earlier in this thread, since I have experience with their Power Rack now.

How much is this usually?

I'm going in to the store. This has been as low as $169.00 about 4 weeks ago, then $209.99 the last two weeks, while online the price has remained the same.

Or just lift with safety bars.
Agreed, I have two numbers for all my lifts; one to set the standard top bar holders and one to set the safety bars so it doesn't interfere with my lift but I can collapse out of the lift and set the bar down without dying. Squat, bench, mil press, etc.

Dunham's Sporting Goods has a similar deal going on for Black Friday on a 300 lb Weider set. In store only, but if you don't like Dick's for any reason, it's an option.
