Review

The XMark Multi Press Squat Rack XM-7619 is a solid piece of equipment that offers the user different types of compound exercises. With this supportive machine you can perform bench press, dead lifts, squats, upright rows, lunges, calf raises, bicep curls and more!

It is a solid machine, easy to put together and set up. It looks good and keeps weights organized and the spotter bars works great and are easy to adjust.

Overall the rack is a little bit expensive for a home gym but it’s built to last for a very long time, plus you get a life time guarantee for this product. This rack also seems to work well in a commercial setting and the rack supports over 350+ pounds.

In a customer review that I found on amazon, even a man who was a metal fabricator was impressed with the construction of this product. You should see all the customer reviews on amazon, the page is filled with a good amount of positive reviews…

Features & Pros

  • Well constructed and easy to put together
  • Great customer service
  • Well packaged to prevent any damage in transit prior to delivery
  • Olympic plate weight storage
  • Two adjustable safety spotter hooks
  • NIne position chrome gun rack with a 400 lb. load capacity
  • 11-gauge 2″ X 3″ steel mainframe construction with scratch resistant powder coat finish

Cons

I always make a list of pros and cons on my reviews, but in this one, cons aren’t really necessary. It is everything people expected it to be. Although this might be a con, but is the only one I have for this product:

  • It does not come with a barbell, bench, or weights, but you can always find great deals on amazon!

Max Weight Support: 400 lb

Video Overview

Comparing the Valor Athletics BD-6 with XM-7619

As you can see the Valor Athletics BD-6 and BD-4 are very similar products, specially the design.

Although these are similar in the amount of space they take up and both being available for almost the same price, they both use very different racking styles and safety points.

The BD-6 offers safety supports that can be adjusted through 8 inches of height settings, which is useful but may be slightly limiting on some exercises.

Meanwhile the XMark XM-7619 uses two much larger safety bars attached to the main verticals of the frame, which can be adjusted through a much wider range of heights.

This means that you have to stay closer to the rack than with the BD-6, but with plenty of space between the supports this shouldn’t be a problem.

    Antonio,

    I am trying to lose weight and this squat rack seems like something to have around the house. I would like to know if you have actually personally used this piece of equipment?

    I know that you said that Amazon’s rating is 5.0/5.0 but what do you rate it?

    Thanks for your time!

      Hey Theresa,

      I don’t personally own the product my self. But I have a friend that has it and I have trained with it one time, I would also give it a 5.0/5.0. It is really what you expect from it, and even for some people better. I highly recommend it.

    Hi Antonio,

    Thanks for the great review of the home squat rack. At first I thought it was just a rack, why does it cost so much (I’ve never owned a squat rack myself), but now I watched the video and read your explanation, I see it may be worth buying now! You do need this kind of rack for versatility of weight exercises. This is great, hold up to 350+ pounds…which is way heavier than I can lift. This is great, thanks!

    Antonio,

    Thanks for the concise, honest review of the XMark Multi Press Squat Rack XM-7619. For the longest time now our family has been using two separate black stands that my dad got way back in the day when he was big into working out. They still serve us well and they get the job done, but there does come a time for modernizing. This looks pretty interesting and I’ll be taking a closer look. Thanks again.

    Hey man! Thanks for the review. I found it really useful. I’m getting really sick and tired of the crowding at my gym and so I’m thinking about setting up a home gym. Would you recommend a multi rack like this over something like say a smith machine? I’ve heard that smith machines aren’t that effective, but i always see the big guys on them at the gym. Thanks

      Hey Matt,

      I will go for the multi rack (not smith), it targets more muscles.

    Thanks for nice your review of the XMark Multi Press Squat Rack, Antonio.

    My local gym has this exact rack, and I use it all the time, since I am able to train my entire body with it.

    I like exercising with free weights doing compound movements instead of using machines. The movements become much more natural and functional.

    Personally, I don’t think the price is ‘scary’ high, because the quality (stability, flexibility and safety) of the rack is unique.

    I wouldn’t mind recommending the XMark Multi Press Squat Rack to anyone who is thinking about having their own home gym. It doesn’t take up much space, and in combination with free weights you are set up for some real good exercises for years and years to come.

    Hi

    This looks really cool. I have been going to the gym for years and have always wanted my very own squat rack in my house.

    People will be amazed at all the different exercises you can pull of with this piece of equipment. This is the most commonly used piece of equipment in the gym which is a clue to how valuable to your workout.

    Hello, Antonio. I think that I need one squat rack for me because the spring is coming. What do you think about this device? Does it work just for men or can be helpful for women too?
    I know that muscles do not grow by themselves. They need to be constantly trained with weights. It is not enough to stay on the healthy diet and do not eat after six or in a better way after 4 P.M.
    Nowadays, we spend a lot of time sitting. This way does not help to make our muscles strong and flexible.
    Your machine can do a great job if we would use it constantly, not just when we see that something is wrong with our bodies.
    All the best, take care, Nemira.

      You can definitely eat after 6 PM and still be very healthy, as long as you are hitting your calories and macros, you are going to make great progress. Check out my #1 most recommended program here for more information about what I’m talking about. Anyways, thanks for your positive comment 🙂

    I recently started going to the gym with a friend who likes this sort of equipment. This I find is usually good for the man though im told many women now use them. The design of the Multi Press Squat Rack is very clever and simple. I love that you can customise it with your own weights and bench. This is great for choosing weights that suit your workouts better and the moving and storage of these items. The only downside I can see is that of the price, in many cases you get a better deal obtaining the Multi Press Squat Rack, weights and bench together, though you may be limited what weights to choose.

    I have checked the product link to check for my husband but it is taking to Xmark Focus Hand Mitt Pair (Red/Black) page. I think there is some confusion with links.

    The fact that this home squat rack supports over 300 pounds illustrates that it is a very well created machine which is durable and does the job it states. I have a question in terms of the guarantee – is there one and if so how many years does it last for?

    Hi,

    Bodybuilding is awesome. I was actually involved in bodybuilding a few years ago. For Most of the time I go to the gym after my work schedules.

    Right now I just focus on having a dedicated home workout, it is not a heavy lifting process but I just use some basic muscle exercise like a push-up or a total body workout using a dumbbell.

    Thanks,

    Antonio,
    Nice piece of equipment. You got to love the versatility for a home gym, although I’d like to have this at the gym I workout at. Are the spotter hooks easy to adjust? You mentioned some of the exercises that the rack would facilitate. I think you can add bb shoulder press to the list. Great review – just the right amount of info.

    I love how versatile this rack is. It’s always nice to get more bang for your buck when they have multiple uses.

    I’m just starting out my fitness journey so I’m trying to get as much as I can without going broke.

    Does the bench come with it too?

    How many times a week do you recommend doing squats/leg work?

    1. Antonio Alessandro Bianculli

      Hey Adam,

      The bench does not come with the rack.

      If you are looking for a program, check out my #1 recommended program. Here is a quick awnser though, 1-3 days a week, it really depends.

    It does look like a cool home squat rack. Looks pretty safe even to do bench press with with the parrallel bar on each side to guarantee that you don’t get stuck under the barbell bar if something happen and you can’t lift it no more.

    But I know there are some racks where you have a pull-up and chin-up bar included in it. Do you know one that is playing in the same price as this one?

      No, I’m not sure about that. You can find more reviews on racks here if you want to, there may be one.

    Very good presentation Mark. Your video really sets it off nice as I could see the product in use. Price wise how does multi-press squat rack compare to other racks with consideration to quality. It looks like it would work for a pro gym setting very well. Is the multi Press squat rack manufacturer offer good support? This looks like a good addition to a home or pro Gym.

    If it isn’t the king of all exercises (in my opinion anyway). This is an absolutely steal for the price. I’ve seen other squat racks that go for $500+ easy and this one seems to get the job done no problem.

    Are there safety pins are bars that’s available with this? My only concern would be having to bail on the weight and dropping it to the floor.

    Fine appearing squat rack and sounds to be a very high quality product, I have never used a squat rack before how would I know how to use this product properly if I purchased one?

    Is there anything I need to know to choose the right squat rack for me, are all of these products good for anyone no matter their size?

    Reply
    1. Antonio (Post author)

      No, your size doesn’t matter. I would suggest you learn how to train properly at the gym though before even purchasing your own. Or you could find tutorials on YouTube on how to perform exercises using a rack.
