Great Product, I have had the BD-8 Stands for 2+Years and they are still holding upRead More
These are great for a home gym where you don't have a lot of space. They are very sturdy, especially if you store weights on the storage pegs. They are also easy to move out-of-the-way if you need to use that space for something else.Read More
Ordered these to fit in a smaller, in-home exercise room and they work very well. Easily assembled, clear instructions included, and took about 10 minutes to set up. They work for squat or bench and hold my Olympic bar and weights easily; there's just a bit of 'side sway' that you have to be careful of or I would give them an excellent.Read More
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. The stands are of very good quality, and simple to assemble, even though there were no directions and only an exploded view diagram. That being said, they don't have very many parts, so it shouldn't be terribly difficult for the average person to figure out. For the price, I would say that these are fantastic and a very economic and space-saving alternative to a full power rack, which I maintain that for serious lifters is still the only way to go (if you have space and the money). I only have two issues: 1. even with plates loaded onto the pegs (thus weighing them down) they are still not the most stable things in the world. But if you aren't throwing your weights around, they should be fine. and 2. the safety catches are fairly small so you really have to make sure your form is spot on so that you stay over them and don't drift on squats and bench presses. This is actually a good thing for me, as like I said it forces perfect form on the most important lifts. I'd also like to note that although they are marketed as "squat stands," I use them quite successfully for bench presses too. They are a little bit of a pain to adjust, but I simply use my adjustment time as my rest between lifts.Read More
I really like that these can be spaced as close or as far apart as you need, since I use standard size barbell and not olympic like most fixed squat racks seem to be designed for. The hooks at the top are a nice feature to help prevent the bar from tipping when loading it, and the spotters provide a little piece-of-mind since I work out alone. My only complaint is, due to the way they are made to have an adjustable footprint, they have a significant amount of wobble even when tightened all the way. There's a little too much space where the smaller tubing of the base pieces insert in to the larger frame tubing. I was able to remedy this by adding washers inside, sandwiched between the two tubes. No more wobble. Overall I'm very happy with these. Finally I can do some squats at home!Read More
Good Product, Can handle more than 250lbs. reasonable price and quick deliveryRead More
Like i said, BD-8 is a perfect fit for my gym. I am not a heavy lifter, 225 lbs for sets & reps will be perfect for me & this stands can easily handle that weight. It took me about 30 mins for me to assemble. It was very simple. First time buyer @ Overstock.com & they did not fail me. I was kinda leary from buying from O. Since i read some bad reviews. But my first experience with them is GREAT!Read More
Before seeing this product, I thought that freeweight squats were the one exercise that one needs to go to the gym for. But these squat stands, due to their being two units, are a very compact alternative to a full squat cage. The product is a lot more stable than it looks - the center of gravity is low due to heavier materials being used in the bottom than in the top, and due to foreshortening in the product image, if you actually look at the stands from the top, you'll see that it has a large, stable footprint. I found these to be very stable even if placed on plush carpet. You can also adjust the middle pins so that they'll spot you. They look small for the job in the picture, but in a controlled failure, I can easily just allow those pins to take the weight. Sometimes I'll even do that deliberately in order to prepare for another exercise, for example, deadlifts, shrugs, upright rows, or even biceps curls. I place the bar there to add or change weights. I think it's even possible to put an empty bar on the top and do chinups, although this would be a bit awkward, and is obviously not what it's made for. But that's just one of the many possible uses that shows the flexibility of this product. It also has a bit of redundancy you can't easy see in the picture that makes it feel even safer. There's a steel pin that backs up the main pin. The main pin can be turned to screw into place. At the top, there's a pin you can hook over the bar to hold it in place (although I can't think of anything that could accidentally bump a 45 lb olympic bar off the stand).Read More
Questions & Answers
push pins, wide base, weight storage
I like the weight storage at the bottom
Can I use a 5 ft or 6 ft Oly Bar with these or would it be better to have a 7ft bar?
Hello natale11, it is recommended that you use a 6ft+ bar on this as a 5ft bar would make it too narrow. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us!
