That shit is fucking unreal.

The bolts that hold the rack together are 1" diameter.  Christ.  I had to go buy a 300mm adjustable wrench to tighten the nuts!!!!

Gotta appreciate overbuilt.

That's some beautiful equipment you've got there   8)

There's a Rogue power rack in the back room at my gym, and it really is well built.  They make great stuff.

Definitely Jealous.

Now, you need a proper Deadlift Bar.

and maybe a Mastodon Squat Bar.
Do not fear The Iron, for it does not care.
The Iron is Resolute in Purpose, Steadfast in Intent, Unwavering in Desire, and Immovable in Stature.
Unless acted upon by a Superior Force.

For me it's not about lifting in the gym or lifting at home it's about being able to maximize my lifts using the best equipment.

My problem is more one of motivation. I have a harder time motivating myself to lift when I'm at home. At home I tend to sit on the couch.

I have been home gym since 2003 now.  I just couldn't imagine waiting in line for a piece of equipment, getting unwanted advice, or dealing with peeps screwing around in the gym annoying me.  I get enough of that at home from my kids, but at least they are trained to leave me the f--k alone when I'm lifting.   ;D
