The Bodymax CF480 Heavy Duty Squat Rack is now available to buy for use in your home gym, although the quality and strength of the frame really does set this apart as a commercial grade piece of exercise equipment.

This product article takes a look at the rack in more detail, as well as creating some workout plans that are possible thanks to its solid and versatile design.


Design features

[one_half]If you are looking to buy a new squat rack there are usually a few key features you look for in the design. The main reasons probably include stability, weight limit and safety features.

The whole idea behind squat racks for home gyms is to allow you to experience all the benefits of lifting heavy free weights in the big compound movements in safety.

The Bodymax CF480 meets all of these requirements and more thanks to its commercial style design quality and adjustable safety bars to help give you the confidence to lift more reps even though you won’t necessarily have a spotter.[/one_half]

In terms of bar positions there are 13 to choose from, each designed at an angle to make it easier for you to rack the bar when you are finished with your set.

With such a range of rack positions to choose from, this not only makes it well suited to taller users who want to perform overhead presses or squats, but also makes it possible for you to rack the bar at a very low height if you want to focus on exercises such as upright rows.

The real strength and stability comes from the frame design itself, with the front raised up to tilt the vertical supports back slightly and keep the center of gravity around the middle of the frame. This helps to prevent the Bodymax CF480 from tipping or becoming unstable and is the main reason why this rack has such a high weight limit (363 kg / 800 lb).

One final design point worth mentioning is the pegs attached to the back of the frame which can be used for storing the weight plates you aren’t currently using.

[one_half]Where many squat racks only provide you with two pegs for this, the Bodymax CF480 provides you with four.

This is particularly useful whether you want to take full advantage of the strong frame design, or simply want the ability to store a wider range of weight plate sizes.[/one_half]

Bodymax CF480 – Features Summary



  • Walk In Squat Rack
  • Multiple Bar Rests
  • Adjustable Spotter Catchers
  • Heavy Duty Construction
  • 4 x 2″ Olympic sized weight plate storage pegs
  • 363kg weight limit




Upper body workouts

The wide frame design creates plenty of space for sliding a weights bench between the two main vertical supports. While there are certainly a wide variety of upper body exercises you can perform with just the Bodymax CF480 rack, a barbell and some weight plates, a weights bench would make an excellent addition.

With the support bars being so easily adjustable this means you can set them low enough to provide support even when performing bench press variations. Because of their length this also provides you with lots of room to rack the bar.

Sample upper body workouts using the rack, loaded barbell and a weights bench:
‘Push’ workout (targetting chest, triceps and shoulders):


  • Flat bench press
  • Incline bench press
  • Standing overhead shoulder press
  • Upright rows


‘Pull’ workout (targetting biceps, back and traps):


  • Barbell rows
  • Barbell shrugs
  • Deadlifts




Lower body workouts

As well as the upper body exercises, the Bodymax CF480 squat rack provides you with the opportunity to safely perform heavy squats for lower body workouts.

As well as the standard back squats you can also perform front squats, or even set the bar supports at a low height and use them as a rack for the bar when performing stiff legged deadlifts for your hamstrings.
