Description

The Valor Fitness BD-7 Power Rack w/ LAT Pull Attachment is a versatile rack that is an ideal addition to any home, garage, or light-commercial gym. With a 2” x 2” 12-gauge steel frame, this heavy-duty unit has rubber base caps on each foot for safety, stability, and floor protection. Steel diminishes as the gauge increaes, so a 12-gauge steel rack is stronger and more durable than any 13 or 14-gauge steel rack you may find. The BD-7 Power Rack includes a straight pull-up bar with a knurled grip at the top to build strength in your upper body. This power rack is a must have weightlifting gift to give as the perfect addition to a new home gym. A key component of this unit is the Lat Pull Down station included at the rear of the unit. With this feature of the BD-7, users can use the 38” lat pull bar at the top to perform lat pull down exercises as well as the 20” accessory pull down bar at the bottom to perform cable curls and cable rows. This feature will add more versatility to your workout regimen with a cable that travels 60”. The lap bar is included to secure the user in place (if they slide a bench in the frame) while performing lat pull down exercises. The 4 adjustable bar catchers are there for you to rack and unrack your bar, making this unit a great station to perform squats and even bench presses. The solid steel chrome safety bars on each side are there in the event the lift cannot be completed. With 27 variable positions for bar support, ranging in height from 17.5” to 68”, users can easily adjust the bar catchers or safety bars to the perfect height for them. The vibrant numbering system helps you easily identify each position and adjust the bar catchers and safety bars where you need. The BD-7 also has the added benefit of 4 storage pegs at the rear of the unit, so users can easily store weight plates and keep them from laying around the floor. Provided a clean and organized gym setting, each storage peg measures 8” in length with a 1” diameter to accommodate both 1” standard plates and 2” Olympic plates – for a more snug and secure fit for the 2” Olympic plates, users can add an EX-10 Olympic Adapter Sleeve that converts 1” standard storage pegs to 2” Olympic storage pegs (sold separately). The EX-10 can also be used for the carriage on the Lat Pull Down Station. Get him the best gift that will start off his new year right. The BD-7BCC Bundle contains all the attributes of the BD-7 Power Rack w/ Lat Pull Attachment, with the added benefit of the Valor Fitness BD-CC2.0 Cable Crossover Attachment. This includes 2 attachable cable machines to fit both sides of the power rack, as well as 2 single adjustable handles that attach to the pulley system. Each side of the attachment features 17 adjustable positions and a pulley system that works with you as you step out for more stretch or intensity. The double bar track on the cable crossovers creates more stability and a smoother movement when using either Olympic or standard plates.

abunda_amazon_reviews I haven't had this much testosterone pumping through my system since riding on back of my girlfriend's Harley. In fact, there is nothing more manly I have done than put together this power rack. Manliness was oozing from my pores. Building a shrine dedicated toward making my body a bastion of sexiness. Roar. But for real this was an enjoyable experience because it was the first addition to my man cave. I took my time building it and had a good time. It is well made as everyone mentions and they did not cut corners. I'm very happy with this purchase. There are a few bullet points I would recommend taking note of before starting the build: You may think all the large bolts are the same size, they're not, some of them are like 1/8 shorter than the other ones. Keep that in mind. Before you build everything make sure you position this in the right place. Just put together the base and account for the rear foot that protrudes from the back. You need space for the pulley AND the weights you will put on it. For me it was like an additional 5" to accommodate 45lb plates. The pulley system slides the weight assembly up and down the pole, not "out". I also give 32 inches clearance on each side of the cage. This gave me plenty of room for the bar when doing squats, and I don't "worry" whether there's enough room either. All you need is two wrenches to build the entire thing. No screwdrivers, mallets, drills, allen wrenches, etc. One wrench is to hold the bolt still while the other wrench is to tighten the nut. They should be 17mm. I actually used a ratchet for one and a crescent wrench for the other. I would not tighten anything down until the very end. There's no need to and there are a couple places to get caught up. The buffer washers are black plastic and are in the bag with the pulleys. I ended up with one additional bolt, nut, and like 4 washers. At least I hope they are additional :) Yes, it is easy to build. That is all. Enjoy.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;The Man Cave Open for Business;;Deetro;;;I’ve had this rack for over 18 months... time for an honest review. You can find a good rack just about anywhere, but price and the lat pull down feature is what roped me in. The rack is great for squats, benching etc, it’s the lat pull down to worry about. If you don’t lift heavy weights, by all means, consider this rack, it’s a 5 star. If you plan on doing any more than 140 lbs, the coating on the cable will eventually wear down, exposing the metal cable. The bigger issue for me is the rubber grommet that secured the metal ring around the rubber ball at the bottom (see attached pics). Sometimes it comes away, causing the metal ring to catch the pulley, not allowing the cable back to home position. Not only is this annoying, but could be a safety issue and my reasoning for only 3 stars.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 20, 2017;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Do your homework first....;;MikeB;;;great rack.

You can't do those programs safely without a power rack or squat rack. I spent over a month debating whether I should get this rack or the PowerLine PPR200X Power Rack. I ultimately went with this rack because of the lat and low row cables thrown in for less price than if I had purchased the Power Line Rack plus the Lat add-on. I have to applaud the reviews existing on this rack. They helped me to get all of the accessories I needed to make this rack useful from the moment I finished putting it together. A careful read of other reviews also allowed me to prevent problems before they might occur. Valor must be reading these reviews, because as of September 2013 when I received this model, the instructions started with several pages of diagrams, but also included 4-5 pages of step by step suggestions to make the installation easier. The printed instructions helped make this a pretty simple experience. Just pay attention to where the various holes should face on the main beams and almost anyone can out this thing together. I am not exactly gifted in the common sense department, and I was able to put this together with my wife over about an hour and a half. It might help you to pull everything out, slap a small piece of tape on each piece, and label it. My wife did this and it made the job easier. In addition to the above, here are some hints gathered from other reviews here and put to use by me on how to make installation and use a pleasant experience: 1. This rack has six plate holders, two on the lat pulldown and four total along the sides. However, they are STANDARD size plates holders. I would recommend getting 6 Body-Solid 8 Inch Olympic Adapter Sleeve w Hex Nut Locks. These are inserted over the plate holders and convert them to Olympic plate holders. I am impressed with the quality. 2. There are small balls with tiny metal cups on either side on the cables just before you attach bar attachments like tricep ropes or a lat pulldown bar. These exist both on the top cable and the bottom cable. Take some duct tape or electric tape and tape the cups to the balls on both sides so they don't accidentally strip your cable. Do this BEFORE attempting to use the cables. 3. You might want to purchase some kind of teflon spray or graphite to coat the pulley system with. Some reviews complained about the lack of smooth operation on the cables, but I did not seem to have this problem, even before I sprayed some lubricant on the pulleys and cables. 4. Use duct tape on the lat pulldown foam pad. It apparently flakes off. I purchased some black duct tape and wrapped it immediately upon installation. 5. Depending on your needs, you will probably want to purchase some more attachments for the lat pulldown and row. A really good one on Amazon is the Champion Cable Attachment Package Pack. You get a better quality straight bar, a triceps rope, and a v-bar. If you go heavier on the lat pulldown, I'd pick out a new lat pulldown bar too. 6. You will need to purchase weights and a barbell to go with this power rack. I'd suggest shopping locally, because the cost of shipping a 300 lb Olympic Weight set usually drives the price up online. 7. If you are planning on deadlifting off the floor, make sure you make yourself a solid platform to cushion the weight as it hits the ground. I used some 7/8 inch thick matting and I also hope to make a platform out of several pieces of 4 x 8 plywood in the near future. 8. Purchase shoes with flat soles or lift barefoot. You DO NOT want to try to squat or deadlift heavy with cushioned soles, the type found in running shoes and cross trainers. If you don't want to buy expensive weightlifting shoes, get some Chuck Taylor's. They'll do the trick on the cheap. That's about it. I have myself an extremely solid power rack which should allow my wife and I to do heavy olympic lifts as safely as possible. Compared to doing heavy squats, this installation was a piece of cake!;;Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2013;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Cheapest SOLID Rack for New and Intermediate Lifters;;Brett R.

Depending on your needs, you will probably want to purchase some more attachments for the lat pulldown and row. A really good one on Amazon is the Champion Cable Attachment Package Pack. You get a better quality straight bar, a triceps rope, and a v-bar. If you go heavier on the lat pulldown, I'd pick out a new lat pulldown bar too. 6. You will need to purchase weights and a barbell to go with this power rack. I'd suggest shopping locally, because the cost of shipping a 300 lb Olympic Weight set usually drives the price up online. 7. If you are planning on deadlifting off the floor, make sure you make yourself a solid platform to cushion the weight as it hits the ground. I used some 7/8 inch thick matting and I also hope to make a platform out of several pieces of 4 x 8 plywood in the near future. 8. Purchase shoes with flat soles or lift barefoot. You DO NOT want to try to squat or deadlift heavy with cushioned soles, the type found in running shoes and cross trainers. If you don't want to buy expensive weightlifting shoes, get some Chuck Taylor's. They'll do the trick on the cheap. That's about it. I have myself an extremely solid power rack which should allow my wife and I to do heavy olympic lifts as safely as possible. Compared to doing heavy squats, this installation was a piece of cake!

The Man Cave Open for Business
I haven't had this much testosterone pumping through my system since riding on back of my girlfriend's Harley. In fact, there is nothing more manly I have done than put together this power rack. Manliness was oozing from my pores. Building a shrine dedicated toward making my body a bastion of sexiness. Roar. But for real this was an enjoyable experience because it was the first addition to my man cave. I took my time building it and had a good time. It is well made as everyone mentions and they did not cut corners. I'm very happy with this purchase. There are a few bullet points I would recommend taking note of before starting the build: You may think all the large bolts are the same size, they're not, some of them are like 1/8 shorter than the other ones. Keep that in mind. Before you build everything make sure you position this in the right place. Just put together the base and account for the rear foot that protrudes from the back. You need space for the pulley AND the weights you will put on it. For me it was like an additional 5" to accommodate 45lb plates. The pulley system slides the weight assembly up and down the pole, not "out". I also give 32 inches clearance on each side of the cage. This gave me plenty of room for the bar when doing squats, and I don't "worry" whether there's enough room either. All you need is two wrenches to build the entire thing. No screwdrivers, mallets, drills, allen wrenches, etc. One wrench is to hold the bolt still while the other wrench is to tighten the nut. They should be 17mm. I actually used a ratchet for one and a crescent wrench for the other. I would not tighten anything down until the very end. There's no need to and there are a couple places to get caught up. The buffer washers are black plastic and are in the bag with the pulleys. I ended up with one additional bolt, nut, and like 4 washers. At least I hope they are additional :) Yes, it is easy to build. That is all. Enjoy.

Do your homework first....
I’ve had this rack for over 18 months... time for an honest review. You can find a good rack just about anywhere, but price and the lat pull down feature is what roped me in. The rack is great for squats, benching etc, it’s the lat pull down to worry about. If you don’t lift heavy weights, by all means, consider this rack, it’s a 5 star. If you plan on doing any more than 140 lbs, the coating on the cable will eventually wear down, exposing the metal cable. The bigger issue for me is the rubber grommet that secured the metal ring around the rubber ball at the bottom (see attached pics). Sometimes it comes away, causing the metal ring to catch the pulley, not allowing the cable back to home position. Not only is this annoying, but could be a safety issue and my reasoning for only 3 stars.

Excellent Power Rack
great rack. Took about 2 and a half hours to put it together , Having a socket set is recommended . Very sturdy and the lat attachment works great. I added some photos showing the process of putting it together , Hope it helps ;)

Cheapest SOLID Rack for New and Intermediate Lifters
My wife and I purchased the Valor BD-7 because we wanted to do a 3x5 or 5x5 program to lose weight and build muscle. You can't do those programs safely without a power rack or squat rack. I spent over a month debating whether I should get this rack or the PowerLine PPR200X Power Rack. I ultimately went with this rack because of the lat and low row cables thrown in for less price than if I had purchased the Power Line Rack plus the Lat add-on. I have to applaud the reviews existing on this rack. They helped me to get all of the accessories I needed to make this rack useful from the moment I finished putting it together. A careful read of other reviews also allowed me to prevent problems before they might occur. Valor must be reading these reviews, because as of September 2013 when I received this model, the instructions started with several pages of diagrams, but also included 4-5 pages of step by step suggestions to make the installation easier. The printed instructions helped make this a pretty simple experience. Just pay attention to where the various holes should face on the main beams and almost anyone can out this thing together. I am not exactly gifted in the common sense department, and I was able to put this together with my wife over about an hour and a half. It might help you to pull everything out, slap a small piece of tape on each piece, and label it. My wife did this and it made the job easier. In addition to the above, here are some hints gathered from other reviews here and put to use by me on how to make installation and use a pleasant experience: 1. This rack has six plate holders, two on the lat pulldown and four total along the sides. However, they are STANDARD size plates holders. I would recommend getting 6 Body-Solid 8 Inch Olympic Adapter Sleeve w Hex Nut Locks. These are inserted over the plate holders and convert them to Olympic plate holders. I am impressed with the quality. 2. There are small balls with tiny metal cups on either side on the cables just before you attach bar attachments like tricep ropes or a lat pulldown bar. These exist both on the top cable and the bottom cable. Take some duct tape or electric tape and tape the cups to the balls on both sides so they don't accidentally strip your cable. Do this BEFORE attempting to use the cables. 3. You might want to purchase some kind of teflon spray or graphite to coat the pulley system with. Some reviews complained about the lack of smooth operation on the cables, but I did not seem to have this problem, even before I sprayed some lubricant on the pulleys and cables. 4. Use duct tape on the lat pulldown foam pad. It apparently flakes off. I purchased some black duct tape and wrapped it immediately upon installation. 5. Depending on your needs, you will probably want to purchase some more attachments for the lat pulldown and row. A really good one on Amazon is the Champion Cable Attachment Package Pack.
