I have this perception that the abs machine is a risky machine, there is a high chance of injuring the back and neck... Shrug

These machines like the abs one, tend to fit 70% of the population. So may not be suitable for all thus possible injuries

When I first started gymming I used to do the abs machine too. But over time I moved towards non machine workouts for the abs... Maybe it's me but i feel the abs machine is a bit restricting :/

The chin-up/Dips station, weight bench and squat stands are my favourite Home gym Equipments. the Big 4(Squats, Pull ups, Bench Press, Deadlifts) lifts can be done on these equipments.

Squat stands look a bit fragile next to a power rack. Jus curious roughly how much weight can a typical squat stand support??

up to around 150kg. haha its more than enough for me. So a sqaut stand is good for me, as it takes up little space too.

150kg is alot le. sometime its not so much about the whether it can hold. but is it stable for that load. when you lift the load and placing it back on the rack for example.

True. It must be able to withstand some level of force when u rack the bar - especially so when the weight is heavy and fatigue from multiple reps rendering you less control of the bar.

Power rAck is fAvourite but confirm will be an eye sore if you put it at home. Unless ur house is mega big u can allocate 1 room for ur gym toys

Agree on that...haha thats why when purchasing a squat stand, be sure to look out for those with stable base. As wide the base as possible too.

I actually have written a short post on the squat stand before.

Do take a look and feedback to me if any information is missing.
