Power racks / cages and squat racks
Different versions of power racks or cages and squat stands and squat racks can be found in almost any gym in the world. Their core purpose is assist the lifter to safely conduct a free-weight workout using a barbell without the movement restrictions imposed by equipment such as the Smith machine, or without having to attempt to lift and position a heavily loaded bar off the ground.
A weight bench of some kind can be found in almost any gym, and is a central piece of equipment in almost every weightlifting set. In its simplest form, a weight bench comprises a padded board (s) suspended above the ground on a frame of some kind. The lifter sits, lays downs on his/her stomach, or puts his/her back against the bench and does various exercises. The exercises would generally involve barbells and dumbbells (which is why the bench is called a “weight” bench) but it can be used for body weight exercises or similar. Additional pieces of equipment can be added to or positioned around the bench (such as leg extension or preacher attachments) so that more exercises can be done.
Two primary factors to consider when assessing a weight bench are how sturdy it is (is does it wobble) and the strength of its frame. In order to support the weight of the lifter, dumbbells, and barbells while in use, the bench has to be strong and sturdy. The primary pieces of the bench should be made out of metal, and should be thick enough so as to not bend. The bench should also be balanced and supported so that, when in use, it does not tip. Since many exercises take place at one end of the weight bench, the bench should have sufficient support so that it does not fall over and injure the user when weight is not evenly distributed on top of it.
