Special Offer - Powertec Rack, Utility Bench and Lat Tower Accessory
The highest-quality execution of the most important training exercises - on the best classic strength training equipment.
1. The Powertec Rack
For the money, more features, reputation in major markets, weight and strength than any other. (Cheap racks often weigh less than the lifts you're aiming for. They'll remind you of it, each time you use one. This is why experienced trainers buy these racks - and why you'll feel better with one) From safety bars to corner structure, pure weight unloaded, and finish, it provides a tool that'll encourage you over time, where others won't.
Rubber-covered tops to the safeties protect your barbell, and accommodate 450 kg. (Some offer spindly things yet claim huge load capacities). And check the dip bars. They're heavy, and are angled to take load off the shoulders and more get chest involvement. Variable chin up handles are also included. It's passed EU performance and safety tests - EN-957-2 standard, which includes cycle-testing - multiple stress tests to the level the maker claims. Other racks' capacities seem to arise from the supplier's imagination. Some mention commercial grade; a phrase with no provable meaning. More about quality in a rack HERE

Here's something factual...a very old Powertec rack:
Here's another. Here's a man doing something serious on a Powertec rack.
Colour: Industrial Yellow. See all options and accessories at bottom.
2. The Powertec Utility Bench
The Powertec bench is super stable; low enough for shorter people to have driving leg positions as well as taller folks. It's been a big seller for many years principally because of the wide array of add-on options, and especially the engineered quality of those options. They include Leg Curl/Leg Raise, Pec Flye (uses gravity for a super squeeze at the top), arm Curl Machine, and the Lat Tower Accessory, which is part of this offer.
The Utility Bench also offers a sealed-bearing roller system which moves it forward and backwards through many positions, which when combined with independent seat back positions let you achieve true military presses when the rear is right back against items that might inhibit the movement, like some racks.
High-quality add-on options for the bench include Leg Curl/Leg Raise, Pec Flye (uses gravity for a super squeeze at the top), arm Curl Machine, and the Lat Tower Accessory, which is included in this offer.
3. The Powertec Lat Tower Accessory
Most add-on high-and-low cable lat towers are poor, tick-in-the-box items. Not this. 130 kg-capable, rollers to hold you down, with an adjustable seat on any Powertec bench - it's like your own lat machine. Foot plates for rows. And stability, strength, real stretches and range of motion. Anton, with the hi-viz jacket in the picture above is 1.88 m, (6 foot 2 Inches), and stretched, not leaning back. There's a couple of 25 kg plates to indicate relative proportions. So this is good for a reasonably big guy to do pull-downs, rows and the rest, with hefty loads.

This attaches to the lower part of the rack - see last pictures at top right. Insert one end of your Olympic barbell in it. You put weights on the other end, and grab the Olympic-thick sleeve to perform a huge array of new strength exercises. Because you're pivoting from a new and unusual point, you get entirely new directions and forces. The variety's good for your development, and your secondary and supporting muscles, and your grip will grow fast with the big barbell sleeve. (It also takes standard bars) Superb for cardio-effective pace as well. Here's a demo video. You can buy it here: Landmine Attachment
