I am getting back into a 5x5 program after not doing anything for 3 months and am now without a workout partner (aka no spotter).

My current set up is an adjustable bench and a Nautilus squat rack

so there is no safety catch to save my ass should I fail on a bench press or squat.

Now, my question is should I spend $80 on adjustable metal sawhorses, which I have read guys on crossfit forums use with success.

Buy a York safety catch for $160 shipped

OR


buy this Tuffstuff power rack for $225 locally

Are there any other options? I have to work out from home because of my schedule/lack of transportation

Thanks

Yea. Just sucks to drop that kind of coin after I had something that was working fine with a partner :/

Also, moving and graduating in a year I just hope I can bring it with me wherever I end up

If it makes you feel any better, when Kroc moved to his new house, his monolift did not fit into his basement door. He cut it in half and then welded it back together.
