by fitness journalist

My husband has recently stopped going to the gym. He said that he doesn’t have the time anymore to do everything and drop by to do weights. He did mention that he would love to have some kind of equipment at home, though. So my solution, a DIY squat rack! If you’re also tired of going to the gym and just want to do it at home, these homemade squat rack plans can help you out!

Bring out your power tools and it’s time for some woodworking. Assemble big planks of wood to create and reinforce a squat rack. Just add steel brackets along the joints to connect each piece for stability and support.

5. Space Saving Power Rack

Don’t have a lot of space? Well, this rack will give you all the space, or should I say, just the space you need when working out.

Something you can build outside your home or inside. By the look of this DIY squat rack idea, it is pretty much straightforward. With a few dollars and your creative DIY mindset, you can put this plan into action.

7. Wall Extended Squat Rack
