Been working hard over the winter in the weight room. About two months ago I started cutting back on calories adding in additional cardio. I’m sitting around 197 lbs right now. One of the nice things about having a power rack is the use of spotter rods. While most will think of safety added in squats, do not forget the safety it brings to incline bench press. In this way I am able to lift heavy without a spot, for if I fail I will have the spotters rods to bail me out. You can also add various attachments to a power rack such as a Dip Bar.
