Won't it tip forward or backward ?
1bigimpact (2 месяца назад)
+jaime garcia Perfect solution :) and you can pick those up for really cheap brackets won't cost you more than a dollar or 2 keep up the good work man please subscribe and check out my other DIY gym equipment videos have an awesome day
jaime garcia (2 месяца назад)
+1bigimpact just thought of an idea for my situation.i would have to put metal brackets securing it to the wall and it would solve my problem from ever tipping over .thanks for the video too .
1bigimpact (2 месяца назад)
+jaime garcia A good way to stop them from tipping would be set them close to a wall and you won't go any further than the wall
1bigimpact (2 месяца назад)
+jaime garcia I believe each stand weighs about 60 pounds with the wood in it and everything witches pretty good weight but it's easily movable if you tip them and Dragged them
jaime garcia (2 месяца назад)
+1bigimpact thank you for your reply. So the weight of the cement on each of them is heavy enough to let's say just incase i move forward and tip it ?

You forgot to add in the cost of the saw and all of the other tools used. I got some generic squat stands from ebay and threw some sand bags at the base for stability. $70 bucks spent and I didn't have to source any power tools or spend an entire afternoon of my time(which I can never get back) building it. However, this is a great project if you're a big time DIY'er and enjoy wrenching and tinkering on stuff.

AverageGuyFitness (11 месяцев назад)
Bro I have three questions 1. How much maximum weight it can handle or how much max you have used? 2. Do you still use it? 3. Can I use thick metal pipes (2-3) inches diameter? I'm thinking of using only two pipes ,one for squat one for bench press. And stoppers welded on them. Is it gonna work?
AverageGuyFitness (11 месяцев назад)
1bigimpact Subscribed you man Thanks
1bigimpact (11 месяцев назад)
AverageGuyFitness good morning bro yeah I still use it I've had about 450 pounds on there with no issues I would assume you could go heavier than that but you might want to put more stabilization on them or at least make sure you got a spotter with u yeah you could definitely use metal and I still use it all the time

I like this rack. Looks like I need to go to hardware store. Thanks for your idea.
steve klaver (1 год назад)
How about some safety glasses for the little girl so she doesn't get concrete dust and shit in her eyes....and some metal rods through the bottom of the boards would help secure it better in the concrete

knox2613 (1 год назад)
Great Job! Does it not matter that the wood is not pressure treated? I don't know how wood reacts to concrete.
1bigimpact (1 год назад)
hey there sorry about the late response, i used regular 2x4 non treated but it would work either way. thanks for asking and watching plase subscribe

TS TOOTIE (1 год назад)
could you add sand to hold the wood?
1bigimpact (1 год назад)
TS TOOTIE it would probably move around but if you were delicate it may work
heavyweight601 (1 год назад)
i wanna build this. i don't want my squat rack to be too tall or too short. i will use your measurements. how tall are you? how does it sit on your shulders when you squat? what about the bench rack?
1bigimpact (1 год назад)
I'm 5 foot 10 what I recommend is actually lining everything up with clamps and everything just to see what would be comfortable for you but I kind of just used standard measurements that were online to see what a bench and squat rack are usually placed at and it actually worked out quite well for me so I use those I hope this information helps you please subscribe and share our videos thanks again for watching

Great video @1bigimpact. How are the buckets holding up since the build? Any issues with design or advice before I build this weekend? Cheers from Darwin, Australia
1bigimpact (1 год назад)

ohh thats great idead dude, using buckets and concrete stablity is awesome
1bigimpact (2 года назад)

alexisgareth (2 года назад)
If I build it to 2 meter high and put a barbell on top for a strict pull up no kipping and stuff.Hypothetically,would there be a problem with a stability because it's too high and need more balance than the base (concrete) has to offer ?
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
alexisgareth yeah that's and actually good idea if you have the space for it maybe screw down both of them II like A5 by 2 foot section piece of plywood and that would be even better because it couldn't tip over I don't know seriously though let me know what you think of because I need to make one too I'm going through shoulder surgery on Friday but after that I'm going to be getting pretty big into the pull-ups again after I heal so I want to be ready with the equipment so if you think of something that ends up working good for you let me know so I can either make a video before or after you make yours LOL but I'm actually curious to see what you come up with and of course thanks for watching please subscribe and share videos and I have to be honest and now you're probably going to be forcing my mind to go make a pull up rack LOL damn you😂😂
alexisgareth (2 года назад)
I was thinking that too or perhaps screw down the bucket to a 2x2 feet plywood before pouring in the concrete ?
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
alexisgareth if I was going to do something like that I would probably use something like a larger bucket and then fill it with concrete like a wash tub or something you could try it depending on how big of a guy you are but I don't think it would work for me but it actually might help with you controlling the movement love your pull-ups and in turn getting more results

Would the dimensions need to be altered if I'm 5'10? Would the space between my chest and the bar be okay with the dimensions you posted?
Henry Gobblesag (1 год назад)
What if I'm 6'3? I mean I'm not freakishly tall and I don't plan on lifting very heavy, so would the dimensions in the description work for me?
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
good luck by the way I hope it turns out awesome
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
you better hurry up LOL it's actually pretty damn easy and awesome once it's done me and my son just got done doing some major sets out there on mine
YEETtv (2 года назад)
1bigimpact thanks for the quick response !! I'll try to build this tonight since Home Depot closes at 10 lol

I lift heavy alone but I have a pair of solid lock out platforms that have the bar sit just at chest level if I fail on a given bench press. I am planning on building a backyard squat rack as well and will be adding in a failsafe for sure to catch the bar if I fail. I would agree that you should avoid lifting alone unless you have something to catch the weight in the event of failure that is overbuilt to be stronger and sturdier then you will ever need so if something happens you are 100% confident you will still be just fine. I have failed many times on my set up and when I do I just safely slide out under the bar, regroup and start at it again. This is a good set up I may consider for myself with some solid advice as well. Thanks for posting this.
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
hey yeah I'm right there with you definitely need to make sure that everything is legit and safe before anything it's definitely a good setup I used it last night I use it for all kinds of different variations please share pictures with me or post a video in the comment section below when you build yours I'd love to see it thanks for watching please subscribe and have an awesome day happy lifting

I am currently working on this project. I was concerned about adding the cement, afraid I wouldn't be able to get the posts plumb and level. This video gave me hope lol. Do you feel relatively safe squatting with these? ie. individual stands shifting or tipping Thanks for the video! Your helper did great staying in her spot and holding, my daughter would have held for maybe a minute before taking off to chase a bug haha.
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
+Justin Smith hey no problem that's what I'm here for I will let you know start to finish I was squatting on them within 24 hours to be completely done with the project minus the drying process it was about an hour and I was done it is a pretty easy if you have any questions along the way please ask
Justin Smith (2 года назад)
Thanks for the response. My squat max is 240lb so I didn't really buy into the naysayers about how wooden squat stands are unreliable. Like any piece of equipment, there will be a time to upgrade but I feel this type of stand will suit my current needs. Now I just need to set them in the concrete, wait for them to dry, and get back under the bar!
1bigimpact (2 года назад)
I've had about three hundred and fifty pounds on them and I haven't felt any kind of trouble or anything I mean obviously you don't want to throw the wait at the racks but for the most part it's been perfectly fine and as far as Plumbing Louisville I just used a 2-foot level to make sure everything was straight if you have any other questions or need help figuring anything out feel free to comment or message thanks please subscribe

Do you ever feel that the squat rack moves when you re-rack the weight? Btw, great video! Simple and definetly effective.
norowl 39 (7 месяцев назад)
yes thats what im thinking
Chuy83 (1 год назад)
This is my main worry. This seems dangerous when you re-rack the weight.

+Sneaker Collector you know what I really never saw myself as somebody that would do that but to be completely honest I lift a lot and I'm finally getting in better shape to be able to do that if you have any certain type of exercises that you want to learn more about I will actually do some work out videos I think I would be cool thank you for the inspiration on that I appreciate it I'm going to use the equipment that I make to make the videos thanks!!!!!!
Raymundo Powerlifting (2 года назад)
+1bigimpact Also you should do lifting videos that would be awesome that's just a request
