These stands can be used for squats, and incline, decline, and flat bench press. They can be adjusted to the proper height for to safely accommodate any size weight lifter. These stands almost have the versatility of a power rack without taking up the space of a rack. After a lot of questions regarding if one could bench press using our existing BD-3 , BD-8 and BD-9 Squat Stands, we designed the BD-2 Independent Bench Press Stands. These stands are constructed of a high-quality 2mm / 12-gauge 2"x2" Solid Steel Frame, the weight load force is directed downwards, as opposed to an extension arm (as with a squat stand) providing better stability and a higher weight load.
