REP FITNESS PR-1100 Power Rack

REP FITNESS PR-1100 is a compact, sturdy, functional and versatile power rack lifting cage with a 100-pound weight capacity. You can purchase it in blue, black or silver colors and in different configurations of just the power rack, with dip attachment or lat pull down, or with dip attachment and lat pull down.

Please note that the silver rack is not offered with those two attachments. But each rack includes the J-cups, the full-length security bars and a built-in pull-up bar. As one of the best selling power racks it is rated 4.6 out of 5 stars by 58 customers. It is a rather stable and safe standalone design power rack or weight cage that you don’t need to anchor to the floor or wall. So you won’t get the floor anchor points on the PR-1100 model. The brackets at the bottom do not need the side plates any more thanks to the enhanced design of the power rack.

It will comfortably fit in home gyms with an assembled height of 84 inches (to the top of pull-up bar as assembled in the photo) or 82” if the pull-up bar is mounted upside down. It measures 84H x 48W x 47.5D inches overall and the cage interior is 44W x 45.5D inches. You can do lots of resistance training exercises in the comfort of your home and you can feel safe. This is the latest weight cage by Rep Fitness at the time of this review. It is a good quality, very safe and stable unit with a 1000 lb. total weight capacity on its powder coated durable steel frame, extended safety bars, laser cut numbered uprights and built-in multigrain pull-up.

It is constructed with the 14 gauge steel with the dual rear bars for stability. The lat pull-down can carry a maximum of 250 pounds and the pull-up at the top and the optional dip bars can have 400 pounds. You can do shoulder cable raises, tricep pushdowns, seated lat pull-downs and more. You can do your close, neutral and wide grip pull ups with the multi-grip pull-up arch. You can get the REP pull-up assistance bands if you wish or mount it upside down for easier reach, as it will be 75.25 inches off the floor instead of 84 inches. With the numbered uprights you won’t need to guess anything and you can make accurate adjustments quickly for your chrome plated safety bars with the extended J-hooks.

The UHMW lined J-cups reduce noise and help protect the barbell knurl and finish and prevent rusting. You can add plenty of weights to your dips on the dip bars and you will not damage your cage.
