Are the Squat Stands Stable?
German engineers always seem to make the right decision when it comes to overengineering their gym equipment. The same story goes with the ATX® Squat Stands.
They feature the old-time favourite tripod design, which distributes the weight load across the three contact points, in this case – rubber feet.
To add more structural rigidity to the squat stands, they’ve added reinforcement plates and bolted everything together with high-tensile strength M12 Hardware.
The Flexibility of the Squat Stands
Regardless of how big your gym is, eventually you are going to run into space problems. This is where the Squat stands reign supreme. They are light and compact, yet the robust design allows you to move them in an out of your training area.
Just because they are mobile and compact, does not mean that you will have to compromise on the core lifts. The 60 mm x 60 mm x 3 mm thick uprights will be able to handle anything you throw at them.
What is short distance spacing and is it really necessary?
German Engineers do listen to their customers, and after numerous requests, have added the short distance spacing to some of their racks and cages. This allows the user to find the optimum barbell height for exercises like bench press or shoulder press.
The question still stands, is the short distance spacing really necessary? If you wanted to look into the old-timers (old school lifters), they have been training with rusty, unbalanced equipment for years. The racks used to have 10 cm centre hole spacing.
Over the years, people got obsessed with finding the silver bullet for everything. In the process of this optimization, we forgot to ask how much of an improvement there is going to be.
While I would agree that a jump from 10 cm to 5cm centre hole spacing is a significant one, I could not do the same for the 5 cm to 2.5 cm jump.
