Is your gym so small it could be featured on an episode of Itty-Bitty Home Gyms?
Then congrats, amigo! This is the rack for you.

If you’ve got less room in your gym than in a can of sardines — and you’re PROUD of it — then this
folding half rack is your huge-PRs-in-tiny-spaces solution. *Teensy-weensy barbell set not included*

Benefits of the Hydra 3" x 3" Folding Half Rack

    Some need to travel to 30,000 feet before experiencing the joys of a confined space but this isn’t your first (high altitude) rodeo — no, you EMBRACE those close quarters with open wings. Featuring the same 11-gauge sturdiness but taking up an even smaller footprint than the Folding Power Rack, this rack feels as good as an empty seat next to you on a 12-hour flight. And when you’re done setting a new squat PR in the equivalent space of an airplane bathroom, you can just fold away the rack. Guess what they say is true… not all heroes wear capes.
    If you’re a die-hard fan of the metric system, then listen up: the uprights of our Hydra racks measure true 3″ x 3″ which is EXACTLY 76.2mm x 76.2mm, instead of the typical 75mm x 75mm uprights of other brands’ imported racks. By matching the same tubing specs as many of our American competitors who make their racks on US soil *respectfully tips hat*, you can mix and match attachments freely without needing to stick to one brand — hello, open ecosystem! Just be sure to research thoroughly BEFORE you begin the mingling shenanigans, deal?
    QUICK! Name three things in life you can’t live without. I’ll go first — pockets, sliced bread, and… a customizable power rack 😎 Choose a pre-made design like you see here or build your own piece-by-piece. You can always add separate components later when you’re ready to expand your unit with weight plate storage, or divide and conquer by splitting your rack into two collegiate-style racks for double the fun. As you can see, we put a lot of thought into this… our mom would be SO proud.

More AWESOME features on the Hydra 3" x 3" Folding Half Rack

Hydra Rack Feature Highlight 1

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Built with 11-gauge steel, this bad boy can handle the weight capacity needs of world-class lifters. You get even more stability than our Light Commercial Rack which means less shaking when racking your bar or while using attachments. Even if it’s not bolted down, you’ll feel that true #heavyweight status.

Hydra Rack Feature Highlight 2

Laser Cut Numbers

Trying to line up your j-cups perfectly can be a pain in the you-know-what. And unlike many of our competitors, we have lasered numbers every 1-2 holes to make adjustments a breeze. So you can easily change your j-cup height after your widow-maker squat set… because counting is HARD WORK when you can barely breathe.

Hydra Folding Rack Highlighted Feature 2

Ultra Compact

If you’re one of those people who actually park your car in the garage and can’t fill your whole garage up with fitness equipment, the folding rack lets you have your cake and eat it too.

The 18″ version easily collapses inwards while the 41″ moves to the side.

Hydra Folding Rack Highlighted Feature

Wall Stringers Included

No need to get the bandsaw out and rig up your own solution, the folding half rack includes the stringers and all hardware needed to easily and stylishly install your folding half rack.

(Hardware includes wall anchors and the 17mm wrench needed to install them)
