The Rep Fitness HR-5000 Half Rack is the best squat rack Rep Fitness has released and is a foretaste of things to come. Featuring a number of features seen on high-end racks, the Rep HR-5000 is a legitimate contender to the Rogue Monster and Sorinex XL Racks at a lower price thanks to it being imported among other things. If you want a deluxe rack at a slightly lower price, this is a great option.

The sleeve spin, combined with overall construction quality allow me to recommend the Chisel, although not necessarily over their other offerings. Read More
