Press Racks

By now you've probably figured out that a press rack, squat rack and a spot rack are basically all the same piece of equipment that basically all serve the same purpose.

Depending on what you use your rack for, you could have heard it referred to by one or all of these terms. In general, press racks are used to substitute a human spotter when you're performing heavy squats, bench presses, shoulder presses, calf raises, shoulder shrugs, curls, etc.

I use a spot rack to serve as my backup when I bench at a higher weight than I'm used to for the first time. I also find it handy to have around when I want to max out my repetitions (basically go until I can't go no more).

  • Come up under the bar so that it rests on your anterior deltoid (this is the front portion of your shoulder) and please NOT on your collarbone. Remember that you'll want to breathe (Figure 01).
  • Grip the bar slightly wider then shoulder width apart, keeping your wrists rigid (Figure 01).
  • Step out of the press rack while balancing the bar.
  • Grip the bar, take a deep breath and yell "sir, yes sir!" (or another of your favorite military catchphrases) as you press the barbell straight up o...
