| Top Rated Power Racks under 500 |

Following up on the Power Racks under 1000 dollars list, I wanted to also make a list of some excellent power racks under 500 dollars. These power racks are well built, so you should have no problem using any of them as a centerpiece for your home gym

Rep Fitness PR-1000, 1050, PR-1100

The PR-1000 is still one of the primary go-to budget power racks on the market. Assembled, it weighs 144lbs and supports up to 700lbs of weight due to its 2″ x 2″ 14-gauge steel frames.


 It’s straightforward to assemble and has several optional attachments that you probably should consider, including a lat pull-down and dip station. The PR-1000 stands 83″ tall, and there is a shorter version, the PR-1050, which stands 72″ tall. 


Alternatively, you may want to opt for the PR-1100, which is a little taller at 84″ but has more attachment options, such as a multi-grip pull-up bar and landmine. 

The most significant differences between these models are their height and attachments. Please note, if you purchase the shorter PR-1050, you cannot use the lat pull-down attachment. 


Those are three excellent power racks under 500 dollars if you can catch them while in stock. 

REP Fitness SR-4050

The terms power rack, squat rack, and squat stands get used even though they are different. I thought I’d throw in a Squat Stand/Rack, which is also by Rep Fitness. 


Sometimes you may not have space for a full power rack setup or may not want one. The SR-4050 gives you similar features of a rack without taking up as much space. This model is great for people who are mainly interested in the primary compound lifts. 


This model has 2.5″ x 2.5″ 11-gauge steel frames and can hold up to 1000lbs of weight. The SR-4050 stands 94″ tall, so make sure you have the space for it. 

The HulkFit-1000 is an exciting power rack found on Amazon. It also has 2.5″ x 2.5″ 11-gauge frames and holds a maximum weight of 1000lbs. What’s more interesting is that it has a lat pull-down and a “cable crossover” addon. So if you have space and decide to opt for those attachments, you’re really on your way to having a well-rounded home gym setup. 


The rack itself is well under $500 and includes two safety bars, j-hooks, dip bars, and a multi-grip pull-up bar. It’s almost as if they’re giving you all the basics, so you will buy the addons, which are a little pricey but probably worth it.

Powerline PPR200X and PPR1000

Both the Powerline PPR200X and PPR1000 are Body-Solid products. If you’re searching for power racks under 500 dollars and sticking to that number, the PPR200x is the one you want. This model has 2″ x 2″ 14-gauge steel frames with a weight capacity of 600lbs. It stands 82″ tall with a 44″ d x 46″ w footprint.

The PPR200x gets the job done but has 3″ hole spacing, making it a little challenging to find attachments and comfortable positions. Typically, you’d prefer a 2-inch hole spacing, but it’s not that big of a deal for most people. However, if you can stretch to $545, you can get the PPR1000, which holds up to 700lbs, has 2″ hole spacing, and more attachment options. Either model is satisfactory.
