Sturdy frame for its compact and lightweight size. Easy setup with tools included. Strong enough to support as much as 800 pounds 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.
Design is fantastic, from the pulley system to the pull-up bar. Excellent value. Allows users to do a variety of different exercises on one machine.
Instructions aren't the clearest, making assembly difficult.
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.
Work out with confidence thanks to 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.
