Hydra 3 x 3 Inch Squat Stand

Feast your eyes on the fabled 3″ x 3″ squat stand with 5/8″ holes.

So sturdy. So customizable. So very much worth the financial sacrifice for a never-have-to-upgrade power rack. You know what they say though… buy once, cry once.

Scroll down as I take you through the magical journey of building your perfect power rack!

FEATURES • True 3″ x 3″ uprights • 5/8″ holes • 11-gauge steel  • 1,000lb capacity • Powder coat • Hardware included • Ships unassembled




You own 1 set of cutlery, 3 shirts, and a pair of
(squat) shoes. I get the picture, you’re a minimalist.

And as a faithful disciple, you know that only 1 piece of furniture belongs in your living room — this Squat Stand.

Benefits of the Hydra 3" x 3" Squat Stand

    The flat foot design maximizes stability and by connecting both sides together (unlike our separate Squat Stands), you get EVEN MORE sturdiness while avoiding accidental acrobatics. And thanks to the dandy 1-inch hole spacing in the bench zone, your bench set-up will finally match the exquisite optimization of your sock drawer. Plus, this squat stand is portable! Just crouch inside it and grab each upright, then walk it where ya want it — the living room, bathroom, or the cupboard under the stairs… wizardry minimalism knows no bounds.
    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" Squat Stand

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 Squat Stands Feature 1

Wide Open Squatting

Like cruising through the prairies in your Cadillac with nothing but wide open space, the hydra squat stands are perfect for those who can’t be tamed by the constraints of the 4-post power rack.

Hydra Squat Stands Feature 2

Perfect Pull Ups

Whether your pull-ups are textbook strict, or a butterfly kip, pull-ups in the unencumbered wide open squat stand space are just the best.
