    It does have some safety spotter racks that you can rest the BB on if your muscles fail.

    Power cage at home with close enough spacing that the safety bars can be set just below or at the level of your chest.

    Srsly though, you could get a decent rack and a good bench for that or a little more. Check Craig's List.

    Wait - you paid $134 for that? Still cheap. Hope it doesn't break. Plus no spotter bars.

    I have that same one. The safety pins aren't all that great, if I put them in the lowest setting then it would still crush my chest, one up from that and I hit them before the bar gets to the point that I start to push back up at ... and they are just about 100% useless for incline presses. I thought I posted about it here before ... I've had 250 on the uprights and it's a lil wobbly, eventually I'll weld the uprights/squat portion of it to make it a bit stronger.
