So after much deliberating, debating, calculating and re-calculating I finally decided to get myself a squat rack. This time, it's for real - as you can see in the pictures. I'm still not used to having a big chunk of steel placed right smack in the middle of my living room but over time it won't be so glaring, I guess.
Along with the squat rack I got myself a 7ft barbell, since the 6 footer is to short to fit into the rack. Minor problem. Got that fixed pretty quickly. The asking price for the squat rack was RM1,900 (including delivery and installation charge). Bought it from Weider. I almost purchased one from Transmark but they are charging RM2,300 for something similar. So I count myself lucky that I could save RM400 overall.
Besides, I can always get a tax rebate next year for buying sports equipment.
