At almost any time throughout the day when entering the Pump Room, there is likely a large line for a squat/power rack. Squat/Power racks are essential pieces of equipment for exercises like deadlift, front/back squat, barbell rows, power/hang cleans, and other compound, muscle-building exercises. We are asking MizzouRec to address the needs of students and members by purchasing additional squat/power racks for their facility. As can be seen in the photo above, there are only 4 racks in the entire facility for a school of over 30,000 students, and exercises like front/back barbell squat and deadlifts are prohibited outside of these racks. With a fortune being spent on new machines for the Jungle Gym, we are asking for a fraction of that budget to address actual insufficiencies. In addition, power racks are safer because of the adjustable safety caches, require no maintenance (unlike the only Incline Leg Press that has been out of commission for 3+ months), and offer the greatest versatility of weightlifting exercises.
