Sturdy frame for its compact and lightweight size. Easy set up with tools included. Strong enough to support as much as 800 lbs. and still fit nicely in a home gym.
No clear way to secure frame to the ground. May need slight adjustments to keep from wobbling.
Affordable price for a cage that allows for the simple stuff like pull-ups, lightweight squats, and bench work. Looks good and fits nicely in small home gyms.
Low quality construction. Some parts feel relatively cheap compared to other cages on the market.
Design is fantastic. Excellent value, from the pulley system to the pull-up bar; allows users to do a variety of different exercises on one machine.
Instructions aren't the most clear, making assembly difficult.
Work out with confidence because of the durable pieces and overall frame construction. Small enough to fit comfortably in a home gym.
Not big enough for larger users. Doesn't offer as much as other cages in features and flexibility.

A power cage (also known as a power rack, squat cage, or squat rack), allows users to safely do certain exercises like bench press, squats, or other routines that require heavy lifting without the traditional support of a spotter. Some power racks come with accessories like straps and pulley systems or feature add-ons that increase overall functionality. Power cages can be extremely large and heavy duty, so finding one that's affordable and can fit effectively in a home gym can be difficult.
