          I quit lifting for a few years. I just left all of my cast iron weights outside. I hosed them off and they are as good as new.

    As long as you weigh the uprights down with something (sandbags, dumbbells, etc) it should be fine. You don't really need safeties if you're training smart.

      Nothing on them theyre wobbly as shit and i should get new ones
      Thats why i have not yet tried squatting 100kg, 92.5 is my max

      I've had this same rack before, reracking was always a fun experience

      Its okay but id prefer a cage honestly

        It handles 100Kg, but you should place some plate at the feet so it wobbles less.
        I bought a cage a couple months later.

              Hmm thats a bit too much for me honestly
              Also my place isnt big enough
              But ill look at decathlon in general
              Did the cage come in multiple packages?

    I got some industrial scaffolding. I think that it is a good framework into which one could build a cage. I imagine that they are available used for cheap all over the US.

    Bretty gud start. Maybe consider:
    >set of homemade jerk blocks (can double as safeties)
    >adjustable bench
    >belt-squat belt
    >wall/ceiling-mounted pullup bar
    >high/low cables and a loading pin
    >EZ bar
    >light adjustable dumbbells

    Fuck I had the same setup but cast iron plates (not a big choice during lockdown) in an apartment. I don't know if bench or squat was worse, but reracking the weights was pretty bad. I got my gf to spot on bench but squat no way, plan b was to try to dump it on the bed to at least save the floor but I couldn't really push for big lifts because of this.

    I would just buy a hexbar and do squats from some elevated point with it.
    Can't even remember how many times safeties on racks and cages saved my dumb ass on squats.

    I call it "dyel with poser plates" setup.

    Aren't you absolutely ashamed to have 10kg plates of that size???

      Apparently, the military is using them as well, so all photos of their training are suspect. They probably did it to make the chuds feel more empowered by lifting something visually impressive.

    I have had a similar setup for years and only ever had one incident. I had a bit too much forward momentum reracking after squatting and knocked over the stands. The bar twisted as it went down and I was able to step forward and not get hurt. Freaked me out though and now I always keep plates on the bases to weigh them down.
