    Help finding a piece of equipment

    Recently I was training with some equipment out of state and I absolutely loved it for my home gym but can't seem to find it anywhere online. I also can't seem to come up with the right search terms. Hoping someone can help identify it.

    Essentially they are like 2 rigs that sit on the ground and allow the barbell to sit (at a myraid of levels) in between them. With a curved barbell for example its an excellent way to do bench with safety and add weight and the need to stabalize to the movement , it can also be used to make deadlifts or bent over rows safer but for the life of me I can't come up with terms to find it on an internet search. The barbell is attached to the two arms and you lift the arms as part of the exercise along with the barbel


    Any help on a name or key words would help. Thanks

    I believe what you're describing is a 'Smith Machine' or 'Smith Rack'.

    Sadly its not the smith. The Rig that the bar affixes to is actually used WITH the bar and weights. (added weight) but then rests on the ground after use.

    Pretty sure it's this, based upon how it was described in the OP: https://www.rep-strength.com/

    That's kind of neat. The problems I see are starting squats from down low and the chance of the weights bouncing back into you if dropped from up high. Costs as much as a budget rack that would be way more versatile, but it does save space.
