Considered by fitness professionals to be perhaps the most versatile piece of equipment in a home gym, gym racks offer functionality to perform multiple types of strength-building exercises. For those looking to complete their home gym, there’s almost no other piece of equipment that can compare to the performance capabilities of a home gym power rack. Ideal for classic exercises such as bench presses, overhead presses, front and back squats, gym racks allow you to train without a spotter thanks to safety features such as Olympic safety stoppers.
Designed with the high-performance athlete in mind, Marcy home gym racks feature durable, heavy-duty steel construction with a powder-coated finish to withstand daily use. Compact footprints and a sleek design make a power cage an attractive addition and ideal piece of workout equipment for use in garages, workshops, and home gym rooms.

How to use a Gym Rack for Strength Training
Part of the beauty of a gym rack is the sheer versatility it offers. Each one allows you to perform a wide array of exercises, so you can get exactly the workout you desire. Are you looking to build muscle mass in order to sculpt your body, increase your strength, and improve your overall functionality?
Our Marcy squat cages and home gym power racks are ideal for this purpose. Use the power rack to load up your barbell with the appropriate weights and perform big muscle moves like:
These movements activate large chains of muscle and help you improve your form and stability as well. Take a look at our available barbells and weights to complete your gym rack.
How to use a Gym Rack for Body Weight Training
Body weight training is all about moving and controlling your body better. Focusing on body weight exercises can help you improve your quality of life by increasing your core stability, strength, and balance.
The beauty of body weight exercises is that the only weight you need is your own body. A typical gym rack gives you lots of ways to incorporate challenging bodyweight exercises into your fitness routine. Use a home gym rack to perform:
Hanging knee raises
You might be surprised by how difficult these simple movements can be. As you work on them more, you’ll gain a much greater amount of body control that will help you in everyday life! Also, if the idea of performing pull-ups and dips is a little intimidating, consider using a box to modify the movement until you can complete the exercise without assistance.
How to use a Gym Rack for Resistance Training
Resistance training is an excellent way to build muscle, improve strength, increase mobility, and keep your bones strong. Several of our home gym racks give you the ability to add resistance training into your workout routine.
In a nutshell, resistance training means pulling or pushing against resistance. The higher the resistance, the more your muscles will have to work to complete the rep, which will program them to get stronger. Our Marcy Deluxe Cage System with Weight Lifting Bench (PM-5108) is one of our ultimate resistance power cages. You can use the included pulley station to perform:
To hit your lower body, use the included weight bench to perform quad extensions and hamstring curls. These two movements alone will fire up some of the largest muscles in your body and give your legs some serious power over time!
Make sure you give yourself the ability to utilize all the resistance training capabilities of your chosen gym rack by investing in weight plates along with your gym rack. At Marcy, we offer high-quality Olympic and standard weight plates you can also use on your barbell for your strength training days.
