Does anyone know if the uprights on this Competitor 343 can be used as a squatting rack? I can't tell from the picture.

It doesn't appear that adjusts higher and it is much too low as it stands.

Also, if you are squatting, you definitely want some type of safety bar or spotting system (unless you have someone to spot you). Otherwise, you are either going to put yourself at risk, go too light, or both.

Thanks for the info! I was hoping for a bargain, but now I think I'll just buy this one:

One of the photos shows a guy squatting and I can see how it has posts to catch the bar.
