Half Rack vs (Full) Power Cage

Power rack vs Half rack

A power rack or half rack is a popular piece of weight training equipment that is mainly used as a convenient workout station for freeweight barbell exercises.

Power racks, also known as power cages, surround the barbell with 4 uprights and safety bars underneath, catching the barbell on a failed rep or if you fall forwards or backwards.

Half racks do not enclose the barbell with 4 uprights. The barbell is used off the front of the rack only, and only some models include safety arms to catch a failed rep.
