I recently received my EXM3000LPS system a few days ago. As with other reviews, the build took a long time and some parts you'll need a second pair of hands putting in place.

Delivery was great! Everything comes wrapped up on a pallet. Total box count was about 15 (8 of them being the weight plates). This was very nice as two people could easily transport from driveway to assembly room easily.

Assembly is pretty straight forward with multiple blown-out images of what parts go where. No too dissimilar from a factory assembly manual you buy for cars. The worst part of assembly, is laying out all of the parts to make sure everything made it to you. The big parts have colored stickers to eliminate confusion, which is nice. However, all the bolts, washers, and nuts come in big bags all mixed together. There must be 10 different bolts, washers, and nuts (each). I spent two hours organizing/labeling the parts to assure I had everything and be ready for assembly.

Recommendations:
If I could, I'd recommend Body Solid put bolts, washers, and nuts mixed together but in color coded bags so you know what to grab when working on a section of the system.

Also, multiple views of each section of the gym system for assembly would be helpful. You might see some pieces labeled x3, get through 2, and not know with confidence where that third part is to be assembled. This happened to me at the top pulley assembly for the pec fly/rear delt section.

Take your time, don't rush the assembly, and you'll be left with a very nice piece of equipment that will last you a long time.

Total Time for assembly: roughly 10 hours by myself with the occasional help from the wife where two sets of hands were required.


   
The PowerLine PPR200X is a fantastic power rack for most people. It’s supported by a solid brand in terms of PowerLine by Body-solid and is extremely good value for the money.

It offers a 600lb weight capacity, solid build quality, good stability, and a basic set of attachments, including dip bars and lat attachment.

I never felt unsafe working out on it after months of use and it’s holding up really well. My favorite part of this rack is the wide walk-in design that offers great lateral movement.

It also offers a nice design and great warranty. This is a great power rack if you are starting out your home gym.

The only caveats about this power rack that I would mention are the poor paint job on the liftoffs and the safeties and the weight capacity. The weight capacity doesn’t bother me too much because I’m not that strong. The paint issues can be mitigated using foam padding and tape.

Overall, this is an extremely well-rounded rack and provides great bang for the buck.

For a more detailed assessment, you can read my full Powerline PPR200X review. I also cover this power rack in my list of best power rack reviews.

“(Body-Solid) has been a great addition to our facility,” said Hill. “Not just functional-wise but aesthetics as well, the equipment compliments the environment and stands out within our space.”

Made of high quality materials, very durable with simple and quick adjustments. The bench also slides back so the bar isn't way behind you.

Can also add Body Solid GPCA1 Preacher Curl Attachment.

For bench press safety I added Valor Fitness Safety Bar Extension for BD-7. Just had to drill a couple 1 inch holes at the right height
