Home Made Collapsible and Adjustable Squat Rack:
http://blackdovenest.com/2010/04/how-to-build-homemade-squat-stands.html
Other than the Squat exercise, the safety racks can be used for the following weightlifting exercises.

•Bench Press Racks

•Dip Station

•Reverse Flyes or Rear Delts Station


Astig yung gumawa nito kasi nacover nya lahat ng things to consider in making one:

1.Freestanding
A freestanding pair of squat racks will be horizontally adjustable. The pair will allow you to adjust the placement of the racks so they can accommodate any length barbell bar. A freestanding pair comes in two pieces and much easier to carry or store.


2.Collapsible
The safety squat racks should allow you to dismantle it into parts and store away these parts in a more compact manner.


3.Steel-made
Steel is much stronger and doesn't deteriorate as easily as wood does. A collapsible structure made of steel will be durable enough to withstand frequent dismantling, assembling and constant moving in general.


4.Easily assembled
Exercise equipment that require tools or is too difficult to assemble and dismantle will either remain assembled forever or, worse, will not be assembled for use at all.


5.Self-spotting
The structure should include long horizontal racks that will allow the weightlifter to safely drop the barbell upon reaching exercise failure.


6.Vertically adjustable
Just like in the above two pairs of freestanding commercial racks, the homemade adjustable safety squat racks should be made with square steel tubes. The catch of the squat stands and the self-spotting horizontal rack should move as a single unit when adjusted.


7.Stable enough
The pair of homemade adjustable safety squat racks should have a footprint big enough so it doesn't topple over regardless of height.

    Ahehe tingin ko ang ibig nyang sabihin dun sa collapsible na part eh to save space. Para to sa mga gusto magwork out na lang sa bahay na problema din ang space. Ingat lang at make sure na matibay ang pagkakagawa. :)

    Siguro kung papasadya sa mga nag we welding mas MURA ? Kahit medyo manipis lang na bakal , estimate kung gano kabigat bubuhatin, siguro di naman lalampas ng 500+LBS bench press.

    Pwede din ser. Yung nasa article kasi no welding required pero mas matibay nga siguro pag pinawelding. Mas mura nga din siguro to compared sa mga fabricated na squat racks. Basta makayanan nya makabuhat ng 250-300 lbs solve na. :)
