Power Station Squat Rack from Australian Kettlebells
Billed as "The squat rack of the future" The Power Station is soon to go on sale by Australian Kettlebells and we have to agree, this thing looks simply awesome.
Like some kind of fitness Swiss Army knife it's the most versatile piece of kit we've seen in a long time. Behold... The Power Station.
Seriously, with kit like this you can forget gym memberships. We think this is the future of fitness and home gyms. Put one of these in your garage, add a bench, an Olympic barbell and weights for a complete body workout solution that can build an elite physique.
Over time, throw in a few resistance bands, some gymnasitcs rings and a kettlebell and this is a truly perfect gym setup.
People are learning that isolation exercises are not the way forward and working your body as an integrated whole is much more effective. Similarly, for fitness equipment... you don't need a separate squat rack, dipping station, pull-up rig, sled and plate storage. It's costly and requires a tonne of space. The Power Station is ingenious and a real step in the right direction for effective home training.
Take a look at this video of the Power Station in action:
The Power Station is like a standard Power Rack on steroids and the setup combinations are endless. Squats, pull-ups, deadlifts, chin-ups, and step-ups - all these exercises and more are within easy reach around one base unit. You can even use it for strongman exercises like the yoke, the conan's wheel or various sled based moves.
The station also makes resistance band training easy and effective - with simple to adjust band pegs to allow quick adjustment of band tension, loading or deloading the bar, adding intensity to your exercises or making challenging exercises easier to achieve.
Dimensions of The Power Station: 2.3 metres high and base is 2.02 metres by 1.16 metres.
We don't think equipment like this is ahead of its time. We think it's long overdue! But it's great to see Australian Kettlebells really taking steps and leading the way with The Power Station and we can't wait to see equivalent products making it over the water to us too!
