Product Description

BD-9 Features: Built with the serious weight lifter in mind. We added both safety bar catches as well as expandable base and adjustable bar supports. Some users may want to use the racks for bench press. Adjust the bar supports to your desired level and then adjust the safety bar catches in case you need safety support. At the bottom you will find plate storage pegs. These play a dual roll in the stands. One is for plate storage but the more important role is to ground the unit with added weight during squat or military functions. We also added more height to the unit. Max height will reach 6' 5-Inch. That means a user in the 7' height range will be able to use the units. The weight bar is so high you can even do pull ups from the bar by tucking your legs underneath you. Solid Expandable Base with each base covering 400 square Inch of surface. For added safety, do not practice squats alone. Always have a spotter.

The pins to secure the bar rests seem very secure.

These stands have a maximum weight capacity of 600 lbs, which is more than I'll ever need.

I have been working out at home and in the gym for years; I have used a wide variety of equipment. My last bench (with uprights for the bench press) literally fell apart, so I set out to find a replacement. Having gave up on the crowded gym scene, I decided to do some research to find a complete home-option. I have all of the weight plates, standard and Olympic, as well as a chin-up bar, so the only thing I needed was a power rack. I wanted a power rack (a rectangular box with adjustable barbell supports designed for squats, chins, bench presses, etc); however, I didn't really want the large piece of furniture in my garage.

There are a variety of power racks and squat stands on the market. The power rack does it all if you want to spend at least $300 (for a cheaper model), but it does require some square footage. Be careful, some models may be too tall to open your garage door. They often weigh in at 100 pounds or more, so they don't slide out of the way with ease. Most racks, however, are extremely stable.

You could purchase a bench with integrated uprights; however, those uprights are not tall enough for squats, which should be included in every program. I prefer equipment that can be used for multiple exercises. These stands can be used for bench presses, squats, standing presses, and just about any other barbell exercise. These racks are rated to a total of 600 lbs--more than plenty for 99% of us!

The DB-9 ("Squat Stands Plus") model, on the other hand, weighs about 25 pounds each; therefore, I can easily store them on either side of my plate tree. There are a few other models by Valor Athletics; the DB-9 is, in my opinion, the best option.

I was very hesitant to buy these stands, because I was not sure if they would be stable enough to handle heavy weight. I can assure you that these stands can handle everything you can throw at them as long as you put some weight plates on the storage pegs. These stands have a maximum weight capacity of 600 lbs, which is more than I'll ever need. Yet, they are very portable because they only weigh 30 lbs each. I also like that there are multiple places to put my barbell. The only thing that was lacking were the directions on how to put it together, but I was able to figure it out by examining the diagram provided. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

I spent about a week trying to figure out which bench press/squat rack combo unit I'd get for my apartment, and eventually went for the BD-9 here. They were pretty easy to construct, and feel pretty solid. I currently rent a house so these reside in my basement, but I feel better knowing that wherever I move next I will have one of the most solid & adaptable setups on the market... something I wouldn't be able to say if I had purchased one of the one-piece press units.

On the flip side, that adaptability from having two independent stands is probably the BD-9's biggest liability as well. I find myself taking a few minutes setting up the relationship between my adjustable bench and the two stands to get the alignment of everything just right... and the floor in my basement has a slight grade to it, so I have a little bit of trial & error time moving from a shoulder press setup, to bench press, to squats, etc. I'll probably have to work out a colored-tape system on the floor to mark the spots for each exercise, though I also plan on flipping the whole setup 180 deg so that the slight grade on the floor doesn't cause me to develop uneven strength on one side, so that would mean double the tape... hmmm.... maybe i need a better system.

Anyways, if you are concerned about the stability of these stands, don't. They're built well, and once I put some weight on those storage pegs below, I never worry about anything moving too far on a harsh re-rack at the end of a set. I even tried a few times re-racking way more violently than I would ever do for real just to see how they responded, and they barely budged (that was with a 45lb plate on each side, but anything above a 25lb plate will give you the stability you'll need for 99% of what you're doing).

Very happy with these stands. Went together easily, and they are much sturdier than other stands I've used, especially with some added weight on the front pegs. The spotter arms are too short to be very useful for squatting, but seem fine for benching. Good stands for a good price.

I bought this back in January and have been using this regularly for the past 6 months. It's still standing and intact. The primary exercises I use this for is Squatting, Bench Press, Barbell Rows, Rack Chins and for loading weights on deadlifts. I love the fact that it has safety bars. I train solo and I've had some failed attempts on bench presses and squats. I move the saftey bar up or down depending on the workout.

It does not rock side to side, but it does front to back. I just need to buy heavier weights to put on the stand. I probably have 5kg loaded onto the bottom. Basically cheap weights that I had laying around.

My only grip with this stand is because they used a longer inner beam, sometimes the holes overlap making the pins impossible to place in certain places. I assume this is because the locking pin is fairly thin. I may try and fix this by finding a longer thicker bolt to pin with the locking pin.
