Training station - barbell rack

In order to fully exploit the training possibilities with a barbell, you need a suitable training station or a robust barbell rack in addition to a flat, incline or multifunctional bench. A barbell rack is particularly helpful for bench presses, incline bench presses and shoulder presses, as it makes it much easier to remove and put the barbell back down and you don't have to pick it up from the floor. But the barbell rack is also an extremely useful and valuable aid for exercises such as standing squats with the barbell.

Why should you have a workout station / barbell rack?

Anyone who has ever been to a fitness centre knows the sturdy and extremely practical barbell stands. At the latest, as soon as it comes to the popular bench press, the barbell rack can no longer be missing. Find out now why you should also consider a training station for your home:

1. Training with the barbell - effective whole-body training

Barbell training is part of free weights training and is extremely versatile. It can be used for simple as well as complex multi-joint exercises for all kinds of muscles and muscle chains. Barbell training also allows very intensive exercise units and thus - in addition to increasing strength and strength endurance - also a targeted increase in maximum strength. The muscle groups involved have to work together efficiently during the versatile exercises, so that coordination and stabilising trunk muscles are also trained in parallel during the workout, whereas fixed weight machines are mainly used for isolated muscle training. In contrast to isolated muscle training on fitness equipment, barbell training definitely offers a holistic and varied body workout.

2. Training station for the home - the practical barbell rack

If you own a barbell, you usually also have a flat bench or incline bench to make full use of the barbell's potential. A suitable dumbbell rack does not take up much space and gives the barbell the right place in the house. On the one hand, the barbell rack protects the floor, as the barbell or weight plates no longer have to rest directly on the floor due to the rack. On the other hand, it is an irreplaceable aid for exercises such as the bench press or squats.

3. Making the most of exercise variety

To use the barbell to its full potential, you need a barbell stand and a flat or incline bench. To train the chest muscles, for example, there is hardly anything better than bench or incline bench presses. Since you don't necessarily want to lift the weighted barbell off the floor every time, you need the barbell rack. The barbell can be lifted and lowered directly from the supine position. For barbell squats, you simply place the barbell a little higher on the rack and from there you can start training your thighs and back directly and without damaging your back.

What should you look for when buying a workout station / barbell rack?

  • Stability
  • Material
  • Maximum permissible weight
  • Diameter of pick-up bar
  • Adjustability

Advanced fitness athletes and professionals sometimes train with quite heavy weights, so that the stability and robustness of the barbell rack is a decisive purchase criterion and also plays an essential role for safety during fitness training. But even if you are a beginner and still train with comparatively small weights, you should invest in a higher quality barbell rack right away, because especially when training large muscles, as is the case with bench presses and squats, you quickly build up strength and muscles and soon train with heavier weights.

The material of the dumbbell rack must be robust and resistant. In addition to the basic frame, this also includes the fasteners and quick-release locks so that you can enjoy the robust dumbbell rack for many years. Welds, screws and paint should also be impeccable.

Another decisive purchase criterion is the maximum permissible weight with which you can still safely load the training station. The training stations available in our online shop all feel comfortable even with large weights. Even our Entry-level variant by FINNLO can easily handle up to 200 kg of weight. To enable perfect exercise variety, a barbell stand should also be adjustable in height and width. A distinction is made between two basic adjustment options. With the first option, you can adjust the side bars and the shelves variably by means of locking pins. With the other variant, you work with so-called power racks with predefined heights.

In addition to the permissible maximum weight, the diameter of the pick-up bar also plays a role. In addition to the classic dumbbell bars with a diameter of 30 mm, our dumbbell racks can also easily accommodate bars with Olympic dimensions (diameter of 50 mm).
