The power rack is perhaps the most complete and powerful muscle building tool on the market. Now, you might be sitting back and wondering what in the world is a power rack? If you are pondering that question, well then, you’re about to be enlightened about the all time favorite muscle building tool of all legendary body builders and power lifters in the history of competitive lifting and body building. Power racks have been around since the old days of body building when the gym was a place of grit and grim and there were very few machines available.
Today, gyms are a whole different ball game. The power rack is mostly absent from several modern gyms and in its place the smith machine (or Smithsonian machine) has gained popularity. Perhaps the foremost reason for this change is the modern fitness enthusiasts aversion to the concept of “no pain, no gain” and his unshakable attachment to comfort and the short-cut to success. The entire fitness industry, which has grown exponentially over the past few decades has shaped a new idea of fitness and crafted new machines that mimic fundamental movements and leave the enthusiast thinking that they have done all the work.
