Found 6th Jan
I was looking at this power rack on Amazon
amazon.co.uk/Mir…DQ/

However I did a quick Google and found it much cheaper direct from the manufacturer. The price is £129.95 with £4.95 delivery... but it only applies to the silver version, not the black version - which is why I think it's a misprice. An absolute steal at this price!

Sorry I don't mean to be insulting to anybody, but I don't think I've seen this much stupidity on any other deal site I've used. Just some of the comments and sheep votes are ridiculous. YES you can SOMETIMES get products cheaper direct from the manufacturers websites... not always... and not with this much of a discount. That's not an argument.

I literally explained in the description why i thought this was a misprice... I didn't use the word 'glitch'.

As for the guy talking about 250kg not being enough... this is a budget power rack. Would you go into Argos and expect a cheap £60 bench that could support powerlifter weights.. no obviously not, anybody with 3 functional brain cells can understand the distinction. Also, as a bodybuilder with several years experience, 250kg is MORE than adaquate for 99% of lifters. I've trained in many gyms and very few seem to squat over 140kg (regardless of what people's internet egos say they lift).

Not very good if the max load is only 250kg. I would avoid at all cost.


I don't think for the money that is a bad max weight at all, 250kg is a lot of weight even in some of your bigger lifts. A lot of people wont be squatting/benching/deadlifting 250kg anytime soon.

Contradiction.


You're right, apologies. Just frustrating that you can share a good deal and it's voted down for moronic reasons or with no explanation. There's no financial incentive from HUKD, so I'm doing this to help other members - and baring a few that stop by to say thanks - there's very little gratitude shown from the members, so I'll re-think about bothering to contribute in future.

Also for reference, these were Arnold Schwarzenegger's lifts

  • Squat: 545 pounds = 247kg
  • Bench Press: 500 pounds = 227kg

So if you don't think this rack is enough for MOST people, you're absolutely deluded. Or you're Eddie Hall, in which case - you wouldn't be buying an entry level power-rack anyway.

Voted hot. Also, some of you on here need to get to gym and see why 250kg is enough. Top standard for serious training is 2 1/2 times body weight squat I doubt people voting cold could squat body weight.

carrying the packages its in is a decent work out
but the net step is basically you do your lifts inside the cage - if you drop them you dont kill yourself as the sides catch the edges of your bar

Powercages are used primarily for barbell training. There is various places to place the bar on the rack meaning you can go heavy on lifts such as bench press and squat and have the added insurance of safety pins below you which can be used to take the weight if you either cant get the weight up or fail mid set. The biggest real use of these is for people who generally work out alone and need the added safety one of these brings....great bit of equipment if you have the room for one.
Why the cold votes? Where can you get this cheaper or when has it been cheaper then this?

probably the word misprice in the title triggered whats app users lol. as i said before id expect it to be cheaper from the manufacturer than other sellers (not always of course , but i dont think it constitutes a misprice)

voted hot as cant see it cheaper to be honest

Well said ,anyone lifting more than 250 kg in any sort of a lift squat or otherwise will be savvy enough to know this is not a bad deal for what it is.My best squat in reps ever was 138 kg and man was I fit then.Heat added ignore the pussies.
Good find OP. Literally just ordered one rated up to 500kg - not that I’d ever need that much. Looks at these to consider at the beginning, I’d recommend them to nearly everyone at this price!
On the other hand OP your relative hostility won’t help this deal at all.

Even if a product or service cannot be purchased cheaper other factors may be used by any voting member to determine whether something is a "hot deal", or not.

Tempted by this for a home gym I'm putting together. I've got a number of things I'm looking to purchase and bookmarked a smaller mirafit stand. Just wondering if anyone has any advise on what to go for, I think the size of this might be the deal breaker if anything. Although it would be nice to have the security and ability to do pull ups.

If you have the room for this then i would strongly recommend you go for a power rack over any other sort of rack. Simply because these are built to make training with heavy weights safer. I wouldn't listen to anyone who says that the max weight on this isn't enough as 250kg is more than enough for most people. A normal squat rack is a decent purchase also but not half as safe and in my experience entry level ones aren't always the most sturdy and don't provide the level of safety that a cage like this does. A lot of power racks normally have places where you can put bars on to store weight plates and a lot have pull up bars at the top, making it multi functional.
tbh it depends how the 250kg is rated, is that a pure static load or a drop? big difference
hopefully its a drop from x height as doesn't take that much to hold 250kg so static is almost irrelevant

Depends on the drop. If you're using the safety catches for benching, a slight drop may not be an issue. However a drop from standing height may bend the catches slightly with 250kg... best off checking with the manufacturer if that's a genuine concern.

Can't say I've ever dropped a weight from height squatting before. So unless something goes wrong mid-lift or you're lifting with your ego, safety catches are there for peace of mind and little else IMO. If you did have an accident and bend them, you could probably order some more (check that first) without replacing the whole rack.

Very good piece of gym equipment. I have a rack similar to this and is a potential life saver if you are really trying to improve strength safety. I have seen so many people overestimate their own strengths halfway through a couple of sets and arms give away or legs/knee twinges this will protect the lone weight lifter perfectly.




Thanks op.
Edited by: "cjparsons26" 6th Jan
Unless you're over 14 stone, a 250kg squat is considered elite. Even then, it's a very high weight, and if you're that advanced of a lifter, you're not looking at power cages in the £150-200 mark. Great price for anyone who wants to lift at home and isn't in the top 95% of lifters.

Exactly, it’s possible the seller has a bad track record when it comes to customer service etc etc, everyone votes depending on their personal views as opposed to finding the cheapest of something and making it a m automatic ‘deal’

Thanks for the input. Ended up going for this and even got a pair of dumbbells from them. Just need a few other things to complete the minimum requirement for my set-up.
Great price for a cage,best piece of gear you can get for home training,maybe only 250kg! but how many are gonna work up to that,not me anyhow and i been doing weights for 30 years.
Just remember..... we can talk about lifting, argue about lifting, find deals on lifting equipment but most importantly just don't forget to lift.
