They say if you’ve got a door, you’ve got a gym. But take it from us, not every door is created equal and if you’re sharing a flat with a number of people who have all traded the office for the home space in the age of coronavirus, you’re likely not going to be inclined to workout with countless eyes on you in the living room. As many of us have struggled to stay motivated to work out during lockdown, we’ve found ourselves perusing the home for anything we could fashion into gym equipment. Milk cartons became weights, along with tins of beans and tuna, and various materials we soon learned don’t make ideal bands for glute work. Thanks to ALDI though, it just got easier to get your work out in – and it’ll only set you back $199.
If ever there was a Special Buy we’re taking note of, it’s this one: the Pull-Up Squat Rack from ALDI, all for less than $200. The squat rack is strong, sturdy and includes a chin-up bar that will be a god-send for anyone struggling to convert their decrepit door into something of a home-gym. With this squat rack, you can just get on with your fitness goals and with adjustable, long barbell holders and two weight storage posts at rear, this is the device that will get you there.
But if all this has you shaking your head in disbelief, claiming “it’s too good to be true”, fear not. There’s no skimping on quality here, with the squat rack being able to hold 300kg – a rather hefty amount for something so staggeringly cheap. The rack features adjustable hooks and spotting arms. The best part is it opens you up to a range of exercises. All in the comfort of your home, you can do pull-ups, squats, bench-presses, overhead-presses, chin-ups and plenty more.
Coming in two packages, it’s even easy to take this squat rack home – easier, it appears, than it is to neatly pack your groceries into a tiny box when checking out at ALDI. Doing squats without a rack might be great for perfecting your form, but when it comes down to seeing results and gaining strength, you can’t do without a weight bar and squat rack. If you were looking for the perfect moment to invest in one, now is your chance.
