Body-Solid is known for making great in-home and commercial exercise equipment. This is the GPR400 power rack, a heavy-duty commercial rack designed to fit in a home, garage, or small fitness club. Also, standing just under 7ft while assembled, the GPR400 is excellent if you have low ceilings. It should fit in most locations and give you enough clearance to perform pullups and overhead movements.
BodySolid has been around for quite a while and you always know you’re getting quality equipment. The GPR400 power rack is constructed with 11-gauge 3×3 steel frames and has a lifetime warranty. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you have a rack that you that will hold up year after year, and a great company backing it. When assembled, the GPR400 weighs 273lbs. It’s already very stable and adding some weight horns will make it even more so. It features an integrated 1 1/4″ bar for performing pull-ups and chin-ups and it comes with j-cup lift offs and pin safeties.
With any power rack, you want to make sure there are some attachments. The BodySolid GRP400 power rack has several optional attachments such as lat pulldown, multi-grip chin-up bar, dip handles, t-bar row, u-links, and weight horns. Most of the attachments are inexpensive with the exception of the lat pulldown, however, it will add a lot of functionality and worth getting at some point.
The GRP400 power rack is going to provide a lot of exercise variation, especially if you take advantage of the attachments. However, even if you don’t, it’ll do just fine for basic compound movements. It has a 1000lb weight capacity and 1″ hole spacing, making it perfect for traditional lifts. Some of the exercises this model is great for are:
Back Squats, Front Squats, Deadlifts, OVH Press, Bent of Rows, Pull-Ups, Chin-ups, Dips, Bicep Curls, T-bar Rows, 1 armed rows with pulley, 1 armed rows with t-bar row attachment, Good Mornings, Barbell Lunges, Calve Raises, Shrugs, Incline Press, Decline Press, Tricep Kickbacks, Military Press, Glute Kickbacks, etc. This is assuming you do take advantage of the lat pulldown system and have a barbell and bench.
