The Titan T2 Series is a budget-friendly weightlifting power rack for beginners and people who want to perform squat safely and effectively. This squat rack and lifting cage will make the most out of your workout, and you can perform workouts on a total of 28 possible positions at different heights on this Titan rack.
If you want to perform bench presses, place a bench underneath the power rack and start your workout. A disadvantage to the Titan T2 is its minimal accessories. Although this lowers the overall cost, it also cuts the versatility of the whole power rack. But still, you can order the accessories and attachments you need, and all of them come with free shipping.
The Titan T2 comes in two variants: short and tall versions. You should consider the tall version only if you are taller than 5 foot 11 inches and your house has enough clearance as the taller T2 rack is 83 inches. The short version of the Titan T2 rack comes with a height of 71 inches, and this short low-profile rack is recommended for those who live in a low ceilings room.
One frequently asked question by the customer is the weight capacity of the Titan T2 and does it need to be bolt down. And it’s optional if you’re going to use weights under 500 pounds. If you’re going to exceed the limit, you may experience some shaking, but there are minimal chances to fall.
However, for safety, you may want to bolt down the power rack for better stability. Once bolted down, it won’t shake even at 850 pounds.
What I Like About
- You can have 2-inch spacings between the safety bar hole.
- It is very strong, highly durable, and made of 11-gauge steel, so without any doubt, it has the best material in that price range.
- It can take around 2 weeks to deliver to your doorstep, but it’s free of cost.
- It would be preferable to choose the short one for you as it fits a low ceiling home. Whereas if you own a gym or house with high ceilings, you can shift your focus to the tall one with 83 inches.
- It is pretty simple when it comes to assembling the parts. Most trainers and professionals have confirmed that the instruction manuals are up to a point, and you can assemble the whole rack within 45 minutes. The J-Hooks will aid as well for the easy installations.
- Titan T2 power rack can hold weights up to 850 pounds once bolt down, and it won’t shake or wobble. And it will run around 500 pounds if not bolted.
- If you are into free weight exercises, its 2 catches will act as spotters and are beneficial.
- The Titan T2 Power Rack offers a warranty of a year.
What I Don’t Like
- There are hardly any attachments and accessories you get with the power rack. They invested more instability and strength than attachments, and that’s why to balance out the price, the accessories are excluded.
- Whether you are going to use heavy weights or not, it is a recommendation that you should bolt it down for better stability.
- You may knock your head for doing full pull-ups if you have lower ceilings.
