I went through the entire included 3-month workout plan exactly as it's listed. That's not exactly easy for 2 reasons. First, it requires a commitment of time since you pretty much work out with THERACK 30-60 min/day, 5 days a week for 3 months. Second, the workout plan puts you on a steadily increasing difficulty curve and some days I experienced severe muscle fatigue to the point that I DREADED working out...But did anyway. Especially when you start doing the back-to-back Fat Shredders, you're really going to feel it.
After the included workout plan ran out (3 months), I constructed my own from the DVD workouts. I coded the workouts with a simple number system, based on workout time & intensity:
1 - Explosive Chest, Shoulders & Back; Big Arm Blast; Ripped Abs.
2 - Into the Zone; Bartendaz.
3 - Fat Shredder; Into the Zone - The Next Level.
I decide what mix I'll do right before a workout. My weekly goal is a total of 18 points, with a bare minimum of 15. For example, one day I might do just a Fat Shredder for 3 points...The next day I'll do all 3 of the 1 point workouts for a total of 3...The next day I'll do 2 Into the Zone workouts for 4 points...And usually take one, maybe 2 days off per week. Mixing the workouts up like this keeps it interesting and keeps me involved.Read more ›
PROS: I'm highly critical of workout gadgets, but I'm very impressed with THERACK! Unlike many other workout products, THERACK promotes real exercises that are time-tested and truly work (generally if it's hard to do and requires balance, you're on the right track). It's elegantly simple, seems to be of good quality construction, and despite my height of 6'1'' I was able to comfortably do dips and other exercises as advertised. Never mind the feeling I sometimes have--when it's set up for dips--that I now own a beefed-up walker. It folds very compact and fits under my bed, just as advertised. While there is NO substitute for weight training at a gym, this product will at the very least get you training with the right kinds of body-weight movements--even if it's in your small apartment.
CONS: ah, if only THERACK included a means of training legs--then it might be closer to the perfect training machine. Also, I find it much more difficult to use THERACK to properly hold your feet in place for sit ups (it's simply not heavy enough to act as a solid foot brace), and VERY difficult to use for seated ab work as it advertises as part of its training use (it's too difficult to sit on THERACK's "seated" area). Curls with THERACK are also not so great--bicep training is a bit awkward. My concern is that ultimately this is a dips/abs/triceps machine--other exercises seem more like just movements the company discovered you COULD do, but not particularly comfortably. Nonetheless, I'm glad to have THERACK get me training at home while I prep myself to begin getting my sorry ass to the gym =)
Get the reinforced model - this is the one that weighs 30 lbs. The ones
I saw in stores weigh twenty-three lbs. Guess you will have to mail
order if you want the better model.
If you are going to toss the Rack - do it on a matted surface. Face it,
plastic wheels are not designed to withstand rough impact on a hard
surface. Besides, equipment should not be carelessly tossed
Get a matted surface to work on. (Sports Authority)
Get a decent chinup bar (one that is removable) (once again, Sports
If you get one used, make sure it comes with the exercise videos.
The videos are key to the success of the device.
If you are over six feet two, this may not work for you. At five six,
this thing works great for me. There should be a size for tall people.
The Rack is not for weight lifters, although it could serve for flexibility training on the lifters off days. The Rack offers me an ideal device for core training (I am training for a fast mile). It is a well designed calisthenics machine and nothing more. Using it within its designed purpose will offer excellent results - if you use it properly.

A surprisingly good workout tool. Pretty easy to assemble, and this is the heavier version of what you normally find in walmart or academy. Read morePublished 21 days ago by D. Beirne
