A squat rack is a metal frame made from heavy duty steel which aids the weight lifter in performing a squat and other exercises. Squat racks have adjustable J hooks which support a barbell at different heights allowing squat racks to be tailored to the individual user.
Once your height is set, the barbell is placed on the J hooks, sometimes known as barbell rests, allowing the lifter to get underneath the bar to perform the squat.
