Last Update

About 30 Pounds!

That’s how much Whey protein you’d get with the money saved by buying the Titan T-3 instead of the Rogue R-3.

That’s a lot of shakes!

But is it worth it?

Would you regret buying the T-3 once you go through the 3 buckets of whey?

That’s a legit question.


How do you pinpoint value with a budget brand like Titan?

And which one of the racks is the best for you?

If those are your questions, this page has all the answers!

First things first…who am I to talk about Titan racks?

I’m Steve Hoyles… I’ve been a weightlifting coach and a gym owner for two decades now.

If I know anything in this life, I know the squat rack industry.

I know the up-and-up, and I know the underbelly.

What we did for this guide

The 7 picks you’ll see are based on a database of over 500 data points.

We looked at every rack Titan makes and compared them in 11 critical categories – from size to price…from steel thickness to colors.

We looked at everything!

Here’s what we found…

1 – Best Titan Squat Rack overall (top value) – T-3 Power Rack

Rating: 77.58 out of 100

Titan T-3 Series Power Rack

Who it’s for: Anyone looking to save money without sacrificing functionality or stability.


  • Cheaper than most similar racks from other brands.
  • Wide range of attachments (from Titan).
  • Vastly improved finishes compared to previous versions.


  • Non-standard upright sizing (not compatible with attachments from other brands).
  • Not as stable as 3×3 uprights.


T-3 is the best Titan squat rack because it’s the top value for money.

And value is what most potential Titan rack owners are after.

For full context, I’ll compare the T-3 to:

  • Cheaper and costlier racks from Titan.
  • Similar racks from other brands – either in the same price range or with similar features.

I’ll keep it short…

Compared to cheaper Titan racks and stands

When you go lower in the Titan portfolio, one of two things happens:

  1. You get to the T-2, which is similar but less stable.

The 100 bucks difference here doesn’t justify losing 2 square inches of steel tubing.

Those 2 inches are a stability factor, especially when paired with the rectangular shape…more on that in a second.

The bottom line – you sacrifice more than you save.

  1. You get to non-classic racks and stands.

    And comparing the T-3 to those makes little sense…it’s apples to oranges.

An overlooked aspect of the shape

I’ll get nerdy on you for a moment…bear with me ‘cause it’s important…

A rectangular shaped pipe will be stronger than a square for more reasons than the surface area.

Here’s the kicker – it’s possible for the surface area to be smaller and for the rectangle to be stronger.

It’s about the axes, moment of inertia, and shear/bending capacity.

(I’ll stop now…)

We don’t need all that math because the smallest side of the T-3 is equal to the sides of the T-2.

Bottom line – the extra inch on the tubing makes for a much more stable rack.

Compared to costlier racks from Titan

To upgrade from T-3 within the brand, you either get the Titan Series or the X-3. You’d spend 100 or 50% more respectively.

Double the price MUST double the quality and value for it to be worth it. 

And again, the physics works in favor of the T-3.

In other words – the added price does not justify the added cost.

Compared to racks in its price range from other brands

I’ve just filtered our database of 450+ racks and only looked at racks in the same price range as the T-3 (+/- 15%).

Most of those are either 2×2 or non-standard – half/folding racks or stands.

The closest competitor in the price range is the BD-11 from Valor Fitness.

Superior pull-up bar, no lat pulldown
  • T-3 costs 15% less, has two pull-up bars, a greater cross-section, and a better powder coat.
  • The Valor unit, on the other hand, comes with an included lat pulldown station, which can be a big plus if you need one (adding a lat tower to the T-3 will set you back an extra 300 bucks).

Bottom line

T-3 is the best value for money among classic Titan racks.

Right now, it’s also the top value in its price range on the whole market.

That’s a big claim, but we made a strong case for it.

2 – Best Budget Titan Fitness Rack – T-2 Series

Rating: 71.74 out of 100

Titan T-2 Series Power Rack

Who it’s for: Anyone looking for a decent rack on a tight budget.


  • Cheaper than any classic Titan power rack.
  • Comes as extra short (71 inches) – great for low ceilings.
  • Standard square profile – compatible with attachments from other brands.


  • No Westside spacing.
  • Lower capacity than the T-3, X-3, and the Titan Series.


T-2 is Titan’s entry-level rack.

It’s better than the predecessor

The current T-2 is a massive step forward compared to the previous version – the powder coat is much finer, and the holes are now laser-cut.

The welds are cleaner, and the included J-hooks have more heft.

Overall, the whole rack looks more polished.

Still, it’s nothing to write home about

It’s a lanky 2×2 rack made of 14-gauge steel with 850 pounds of rackable capacity.

The one advantage it has over the T-3 is the standard profile.

If you get the T-3, you’re limited to Titan attachments.

For the T-2, you can shop cross-brand for any 2×2 attachment.

If you ask me, the number of attachments is not a deal-breaker, but the versatility of being to add from the whole market might be. Especially if you’re tight on money, space or need a very particular versatility from your rack.

It’s certainly not why you buy the T-2 though.

I say that for two reasons:

  1. There’s plenty of Titan attachments.
  2. The added value of cross-brand shopping is minor.

    Again, I’m looking at our database of attachments as I type this.

    And I see nothing there that doesn’t exist for the T-3. It’s mostly J-cups, safeties, and weight-plate holders. You’d have to be going super-niche to justify it.

The bigger deal

The bigger advantage of the T-2’s standard profile is this – you can mount the attachments in any orientation, on any side of the uprights.

Again, this could be an advantage depending on your available space.

That’s not the case with the T-3.

Bottom line

Titan T-2 is a basic but versatile rack that does the job for little money.

3 – Money-No-Object Pick – Titan Series

Rating: 71.66 out of 100

Titan Series Power Rack

Who it’s for: The value-oriented buyer who still wants a top-tier rack.


  • Highest weight capacity among Titan racks.
  • Exists in an extra-tall variant.
  • Laser cut holes and numbers.
  • Six color choices and a nameplate available.


  • Costs more than any classic Titan rack.
  • Fewer dedicated attachments than T-3 and T-2.


This big boy represents everything that Titan wasn’t 5 or 10 years ago (and is today).

Titan Series is:

  • As rugged as racks come – the whole-rack capacity is a stupendous 10,000 lbs.
  • As cool as (Titan) racks come – the only one with laser-cut numbers and a nameplate.
  • As tall as racks come – on the 100-inch version, the pull-up bar can be 94 inches high.

    That’s a plus if you’re tall and into kipping, and it leaves extra space for other attachments.

A second thought about the label

The “money-no-object” is our standard label, so I’ve used it here to keep things consistent.


It doesn’t really make sense if we’re ONLY talking about Titan racks.


Because if money is not an object, you’d probably spend 3 times as much on a Sorinex XL.

Titan Series isn’t about that. It’s not about splurging.

It’s about getting more for the same money.

Bottom line

Buying the Titan Series is like buying a high-end Ford with all the toys instead of a bare-boned Mercedes.

It makes sense if you have money but spend it conservatively.

4 – Best Titan Rack for Small Spaces – X-3 Folding

Rating: 70.97 out of 100

Titan X-3 Series Folding Power Rack

Who it’s for: Anyone with a small home gym and wall space to spare.


  • Space-saving – folds down almost flush with the wall (8 inches deep).
  • As stable as any rack.
  • Cheaper than classic racks.


  • Pesky initial set-up.


Titan’s makes the cheapest folding racks on the market.

And it’s not even close…the alternatives from other brands (Rogue, REP, PRx, Bells of Steel) would cost you anywhere from 50-250% more.

The alternatives from Titan

Titan also makes two “space-saving” racks with no folding mechanisms (T-3 and the X-3) and a folding T-3.

When every inch matters, a folding rack is the obvious choice because it maximizes the use of space.

You set it up, lift, and get it out of the way.

Compared to folding T-3

The folding T-3 should be cheaper than the X-3.

For some mysterious reason, it actually costs slightly more.

I’m not sure why….

Titan’s reasoning here might 1 of 2 things:

  1. The T-3 folds down 2 inches closer to the wall (6 vs. 8”)
  2. The X-3 is a peg shorter.

Neither reason passes the smell test.

The robustness of the X-3 makes much more difference than an inch shaved from the folded footprint.

Note: Titan folding racks are a bitch to set up. They look deceptively simple but the instructions are the opposite of helpful. By the end of putting these up, you’ll feel like Titan hates you.

The video below does a solid job of explaining it.

Bottom line

If you have the mental stamina for the setup, there’s a lot to like about this rack. Saving space and a few hundred bucks top that list.


Inside width (inches)42
Depth options (inches)21 / 41
Height options (inches)80 / 90
Profile – dimensions and gauge3×3, 11 gauge
Capacity (lbs)1,100

5 – Titan Fitness Indy Stand – T-3 Independent Stands

Rating: 67.74 out of 100

Titan T-3 Series Independent Squat Stand

Who it’s for: Anyone looking for budget-friendly indy* squat stands.

*Indy – Independent


  • Save space – easy to move and store.
  • You can choose the width that’s best for you.
  • Cheaper than racks.
  • Short enough for basements.


  • Less stable/safe than racks.


An independent squat stand might be a good fit for extra small gyms….as long as you’re not a beginner and understand the inherent safety issues.

More flexible than the alternatives

Folding racks and connected stands are less flexible than indy stands.

That’s because you still need a dedicated space – be it floor or wall.

Good but not the best

Titan makes one indy stand – the T-3 Series – so it’s the “best”  from the Titan (duh).

It ticks all the key boxes – thick steel, bolt-down holes, and high capacity.

For reference, only 2 other stands with 11-gauge upright come to mind:

  1. Rogue S-4 – this one’s better than T-3 but costs about 40% more.

    It’s beefier and features an insanely thick 7-gauge base.
  2. GetRxd Heavy Duty stand – costs less than T-3, but it’s not as good.

    It has a lesser cross-section (2×2) and weight capacity (900 lbs).

    It’s also compatible with fewer attachments.

There’s one stand with better value for money than the T-3 – it comes from Bells of Steel and costs about 30% less.

You can read more about it in our guide on the best independent squat stands or on the Bells of Steel website.

Bottom line

T-3 is a solid budget pair of squat stands. It’s flexible and, when bolted down, compatible with all Titan attachments from the T-3 Series.

Bear in mind though, that by bolting them down you lose the flexibility of positioning afforded by stands. 


Footprint per stand (inches)24 x 25
Height (inches)72.5
Profile – dimensions and gauge2×3”, 11 gauge
Capacity (lbs)1,000
Hole size and spacing11/16” / Westside

6 – Titan Fitness X-3 Connected Squat Stand – X-3 Series Short and X-3 Series Tall

Rating: 65.32 out of 100

Who it’s for: Anyone looking for a simple squat stand that won’t break the bank.


  • Stable without bolts (flat-foot base).
  • Heftier than the T-3 Series stands (3×3 profile).
  • Available as tall or short.
  • Easy to take apart and move.


  • Less stable than racks.
  • No weight plate-holders or bolt-down plates.


A connected stand might be the perfect compromise if you have plenty of free floor but not enough vertical space to accommodate 4 posts.

Titan makes two connected stands – the T-3 and the X-3 Series.

X-3 is the superior stand

The price difference is currently 50 bucks for the short stand and about 70 for the tall one.

With squat stands, the extra heft matters.

Since none of the two feature bolt-down plates or extra horns for stabilization, X-3 is the obvious choice.

Bottom line

X-3 is a stout pair of flat-footed squat stands. It costs much less than its direct competitors, and it’s better than the T-3 Series.


Base dimensions – footprint (inches)48 x 48
Height options (inches)71.25 / 93
Profile – dimensions and gauge3×3, 11 gauge
Capacity (lbs)1,000
Hole size and spacing11/16” / Westside

Note: No matter how stable the stand is, there’s a certain risk of it toppling over when paired with spotter arms, dip bars, and heavy weight on the other end.

The forces work outside the footprint, and a moment arm becomes a part of the equation. The risk is still minor compared to indy stands, but it exists.

The flat-foot design lowers it but doesn’t eliminate it. Just bear this in mind if you’re a big dude or will be adding extra weight. What price can you put on the extra safety?

7 – Best Titan Squat Rack for Powerlifters – T-3 Yoke rack (T-3 Short and T-3 Tall)

Rating: 65.32 out of 100

Who it’s for: For powerlifters looking for a budget Yoke rack.


  • Functionality beyond traditional racks.
  • Sled-shaped base – allows for pulls/pushes.
  • Cheaper than yoke racks from competing brands.
  • Weight horns for extra stability.


  • Not as stable as racks (unless you pack the base with plates).
  • Lesser cross-section compared to Rogue and REP yoke racks (check out also our best REP Fitness power racks guide for more info on REP’s range of racks).


T-3 is the only yoke rack from Titan.

That makes it the best for powerlifters looking for added functionality like yoke walks, sled pulls, and Zercher carries.

It’s unique, and it doesn’t make sense comparing it to other Titan racks.


Let’s compare it to the competition from other brands.

Two of them stand out…

Titan T-3 Yoke vs. REP Oxylus vs. Rogue Y-1/Y-2

  • T-3 is the best budget option of the three.

    The Oxylus and Y-1 cost about 70 and 25% more, respectively.
  • The Oxylus is the superior rack in absolute terms because it’s larger, heavier, and the only 3×3 yoke here.
  • Rogue Y-1 and Y-2 live in-between –  they’re cheaper than Oxylus and have finer finishes than the T-3 (great news for all powerlifters sensitive about finishes…both of them).

Bottom line

T-3 Yoke is a solid budget alternative to Rogue Oxylus and Rogue Y-1. It does all the same things for less money. It’s also surprisingly good value for a rack that offers you so much versatility.

If you’ve got the space to take advantage of all of its features, I’d be giving this some serious consideration.


Base dimensions – footprint (inches)52 x 52 (short) / 52 x 53 (tall)
Height options (inches)72 / 92
Profile – dimensions and gauge2×3, 11 gauge
Capacity (lbs)750
Hole size and spacing11/16” / Westside
Thickness of the yoke bar (inches)2.95

Buyer’s guide to choosing a Titan Fitness squat rack

What’s the key to choosing the right Titan squat rack FOR YOU?

The guide below answers that.

I wrote it with two goals in mind:

  1. Offer insight into how we made our picks.
  2. Help you choose if you don’t like any of our recommendations.

8 primary factors to consider when buying a Titan rack

Buyer’s guide to Titan Fitness squat racks

#1 – Structural build and stability of Titan squat racks

(0 to 24.16 points in our ratings)

The structural build of a Titan rack comes down to 3 things:

  1. Gauge of the steel.
  2. Dimensions of the tubing.
  3. The connections – welds and joints.
The thickness (gauge) of the Titan steel

“Gauge” describes how thick the steel is.

Titan uses either 11 gauge (0.1196 inches) or 14 gauge (0.0747 inches).

We’ll put that into perspective in a minute…

Tubing dimensions of Titan racks – base and uprights

Titan racks are either 3×3, 2×3, or 2×2.

To be specific:

  • All racks from the T-3 Series are 2×3 (11 gauge).
  • The X-3 and Titan Series are 3×3 (also 11 gauge).
  • Only the T-2 uses 2×2 tubes (14 gauge).
  • The combo rack – 3×3 (parts of the base) and 2×2 (on the support of the spotter arms).
Overall capacity and rackable capacity

You’ll typically see two numbers describing the capacity of a Titan rack:

  1. Rackable capacity – most weight allowed on a racked barbell.
  2. Whole-rack capacity – most weight allowed on the rack at any given moment.

    This includes stored plates, any racked barbells, mounted attachments, and your weight on pull-ups or dips. If you’re using your rack as a primary weight plate storage, this is something you have to take notice about. 

What it means for you

It means Titan racks are rugged enough for most home gyms.

All of them…

Even the T-2 has a rackable capacity of 850 lbs, which is more than enough for most people.

The exception – Yoke racks

Despite the burly build (11 gauge, 2×3), the Yoke racks have the lowest weight capacity.

That’s because the rack is designed for versatility – the base is shaped to be a sled and a yoke.

The shape lowers the safe rackable capacity, not the materials.

Bottom line – it’s all stability

Let’s be real – you’re not going anywhere near the listed capacities.

Does that mean they don’t matter?

They absolutely matter – as an indicator of stability.

A 3×3, 11 gauge rack will be much more stable than a 2×2, 14 gauge.

To resume…

For most people, 11-gauge steel paired with 2×3 uprights will be stable enough.

The other part of that equation is the shape of the base and the connections.

More on that in a hot second…

#2 – Size/footprint of a Titan Fitness rack

(0 to x points in our ratings)

The footprints of Titan racks start at 7 square feet (folding T-3) and go up to 33+ (combo rack).


The folding variant of the T-3 has a ridiculously small footprint when not in use.

If you choose the shorter crossmembers (21 inches), the folded footprint becomes approximately 1.6 square feet.

That’s the most space a Titan rack can save you.

The other outlier is the husky Combo Rack, with an 81-inch wide base.

I’m guessing people who need it to prepare for powerlifting competitions will have the space for it.

Most Titan racks are in the 15 to 20-square-feet range

Outliers aside, most Titan racks are 45-55 inches wide and 30-45 inches deep.

Add two feet on the sides and the front; that tells you if your space is big enough for the rack.

Below is a graph comparing the footprints of the top-rated Titan racks.

I used the smaller versions when multiple were available, like with the T-3 or the Titan Series.

Titan rack footprints compared

#3 – Height of Titan racks

(0 to 9.68 points in our ratings)

The height of a Titan rack can be a decision point in 3 scenarios:

  1. You have low ceilings.
  2. You’re tall and need an extra-high pull-up bar.
  3. You need extra space for kipping pull-ups (no less than 20-25” bar-to-ceiling).
I’m including two graphs here to address those specific scenarios.
Graph #1 compares the minimum heights of Titan racks, and #2 compares the maximums.

The two values are different because of the optional heights.

Minimum heights of Titan racks compared
Maximum heights of Titan racks compared

#4 – Safety of Titan Fitness squat and power racks

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

Titan has a horse in every proverbial race on the market – from independent and connected stands to full-blown power cages.

A rule of thumb

If you’re lifting heavy and alone, go with a Titan rack that takes safeties and allows you to squat/bench inside the cage.

Any classic T-3 power rack ticks those boxes.

For example, go with the T-3 and add flip-down safeties.

If the space only allows for a stand, bolt it down and pair it with spotter arms.

Example of the setup – T-3 stand and spotter arms.

This sounds like common sense, but you’d be surprised how many people ignore the basics.

#5 – Versatility of Titan Racks, Cages and Stands

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

Versatility of a Titan rack comes down to 2 things:

  1. Type of rack.
  2. Number of compatible attachments.

Classic 3×3 rack with 4 or 6 uprights is the most versatile type because it’s stable and has more space for attachments (compared to stands and folding racks)

That narrows the choices to three racksthe T-3, X-3, and the Titan Series.

If you simply count the compatible attachments, you get the list of the most versatile Titan racks.

It looks like this:

Titan rack series# of compatible attachments

Within this trifecta, the differences in versatility are minor.

Most importantly, all the key attachments (like the lat tower and the belt squat) are compatible with all 3 series.

#6 – Hole spacing on Titan Fitness racks

(0 to 4.84 points in our ratings)

Six out of seven Titan Fitness racks have Westside spacing (1 inch in the bench area, 2 inches on the rest).

If you’re serious about your powerlifting then this is a fundamental feature.

The exception is (again) the T-2, which is spaced 2 inches throughout.

If you’re benching to failure, skip the T-2.

#7 – Compatible attachments from other brands (beyond squatting, bench press and pull-ups)

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

First things first – if you get a Titan rack, I recommend sticking with Titan attachments.

Two reasons for that:

  1. Attachments from other brands aren’t an ideal fit (even when the listed specs are the same).
  2. Titan makes pretty much every attachment you need (and they’re cheaper than most).

If you still want to look for attachments “in the wild,” here’s what to expect:

  1. T-3 Series

    The 11/16-inch hole will fit attachments from other brands (Rogue, REP, PRx, Griffin, Signature Fitness) as long they’re mounted with ⅝-inch pin (you’ll need an adapter because all of these are made for a 3×3 profile).

    You’ll also see some “play” because of the diameter difference – 10/16 pins in 11/16-inch holes.
  2. X-3 Series

    Same as for the T-3 Series, only without an adapter.
  3. Titan Series

It will be a fit for attachment with 1-inch pins.

  1. T-2 Series

It could theoretically work with 1-inch pins and two adapters. But why would anyone do that?

Again, there are no guarantees when you go attachment-hunting outside of a brand.

Humor me for a second…

Let’s say you want a pair of REP J-cups.

On paper, REP’s 4000 Series should be a good fit for the X-3 rack, and the 5000 should fit the Titan Series.

In reality, the inner dimensions are slightly smaller, and you’d need to modify the cups to make it work.

Brands call this “machining variables.”

I call it “buy-my-stuff variables.”

Whatever the reason behind it, just be aware and keep it simple.

#8 – Prices of Titan racks (with graph comparison)

(0 to 32.26 points in our ratings)

Lower price tags for similar racks are the #1 reason people go with Titan.

“Lower price tag” used to mean cheap.

Titan has moved from cheap to a value brand over the last 10 years.

For the rack lineup, it means 3 things:

  1. Their racks (and other stuff) stopped sucking.
  2. The price differences aren’t as drastic.
  3. They have expensive racks.

What it means for you

You can get a decent Titan rack for under $400 or splurge 1K+ on the Titan Series.

Below is a graph with price references of the top-rated Titan racks.*

Methodology – how we assess and rate Titan squat racks

Below is an overview of every step we took to choose the best among the Titan racks.

It’s not about bragging.

It’s about proving we’re not amateurs.

All our ratings are based on first-hand experiences, expert opinions, and, above all else, data from our massive rack database.

Here’s what we did to rate every Titan rack:

  1. We compared our database of squat racks (400+ and growing) with the Titan website.

    The goal was to ensure every Titan rack is included in the research.
  2. Based on #1, we created a final list of all Titan racks to rate.
  3. We created a long-list of factors and data points to consider..

We landed on 37 data points for each rack, 11 of which are “ratable,” meaning that it makes sense to compare them directly.

That’s a total of 518 data points, 154 of which are ratable.

  1. We created a database of Titan racks based on the previous step.
  2. We awarded gravities* to each ratable category based on first-hand experiences, user reviews, and talks with some top industry experts.

    *Gravity is the maximum number of points a factor carries.

    For example, the steel gauge has a gravity of 8.06, while something deal-breaking like price has a gravity of 32.26. 
  3. We tweaked the gravities and ratings to make sure the comparison between Titan racks is fair.
  4. We repeated the talks with industry experts to get more trained eyeballs on the ratings before the rollout.
  5. We rated every Titan squat rack based on steps #1-7.
  6. We decided on the number of picks to present.

    The goal was to make the list complete but concise.
  7.  We update the database and rating of the Titan racks to keep it all relevant.

As always, the goal is to take a complicated thing and make it simple.

FAQs about Titan squat racks

Are Titan racks as good as Rogue?

No, Titan racks are not as good as Rogue, but they are a solid budget alternative.

The X-3 rack from Titan can be compared with Rogue in terms of robustness, but that’s about it.

Rogues’ finishes, tolerances, and attention to detail are superior. As a buyer, it’s up to you to decide whether or not that’s important enough for you to spend the extra money.

You can see our guide on the best Rogue racks here.

Do Rogue attachments fit Titan racks?

Yes, some Rogue attachments like Monster Lite J-cups do fit Titan racks.

The fit is imperfect because the diameters are slightly smaller for the same listed size, so you’ll see some rattle.

On the other hand, Titan attachments will not work with Rogue racks because the pins won’t fit.

Where are Titan racks made?

Titan racks like the T-2 Series Power Rack are typically made in China, which is not a bad thing per se.

Titan does have a made-in-the-USA line, but it’s primarily barbells.

It’s safe to assume it’s made overseas if not otherwise specified in the specs.

Other Titan racks – close-but-no-cigar

I promised to make the list of winners concise.

That means some solid racks get left behind, even though they might be a great fit for some people.

You might be one of those people, so it’s definitely smart to scan the list below (especially the two versions of the X-3).

  • X-3 flat-foot power rack – robust and as stable as any, even without plates on the weight-plate holders, it’s better value for most home gyms than the Titan Series.
  • X-3 Series Bolt-down rack – if you prefer to bolt down your racks, get this instead of the flat-footed X-3. It also allows you to choose the depth (24 or 36 inches), while the Flat-foot X-3 only comes at 30 inches of inside depth.
  • Competition Bench and Squat Rack Combo – allows you to quickly adjust the racking height using lever arms and offers extra sturdy spotter arms for the bench press. It’s only worth buying if you’re training for a powerlifting competition.
  • T-3 and X-3 Series half rack conversion kits – if you’re unsure whether you need two or four uprights, go with two. If that feels wrong, get the conversion kits and convert the T-3/X-3 to a half rack for more stability.

Best Titan squat/power racks – resume and key takeaways

Here’s the guide boiled down to a few points:

  • If you’re looking for value without significant sacrifices in stability, go with the T-3 Power Rack. To get a better rack from Titan, you’d have to splurge 40-100% more (for the X-3 or the Titan Series).
  • If you’re buying a Titan rack to save money, go with the T-2 Power Rack (if you want a “classic” rack) or with the tall stand from the T-3 Series (two uprights but can convert to a half rack).
  • If you’re OK with spending over 1K on a rack, get the Titan Series. It’s brutal.
