Can powerlifting make you big?

 
Powerlifting will not get you big by itself. You will   need the diet to back it up. Eat big to get big.   Powerlifting  can take care of these calories turning into muscle instead of jelly.

No,   powerlifting will not get you ripped.   Your diet will. The shredded look is mainly made in the kitchen, not on the gym floor.

Overview of the RML 390C

 
The   Rogue RML 390C  is one of the lowest priced racks of   Rogue  where you can choose the color. This is the right choice for limited spaces that still want   to  show style. The available colors for the   RML390C  are
 
  • Bright blue
  • Bright green
  • Burnt orange
  • Dark blue
  • Dark red
  • Gunmetal
  • Light Gray
  • Rogue Red
  • Satin Black
  • Satin Clear
  • White
The   rack  weighs 265B on a footprint of 34'' or 40''x53''. The steel notes are made of 3x3'' 11 Gauge steel. It ships with J cups, Pin/Pipe safeties and band pegs. The   RML 390C  is compatible with the Monster Lite series and accessories. The length is 30'' or 36'', the width 49'' and the height 90.375''. At the lower end, you have the westside spacing   which  makes it possible   to  bench with lower increments in height. This also leaves more options for setting up bands for the Westside method for the squat and bench.
 
If you want a colored   rack  from   Rogue  this is the lowest entry price you can go for all other options come in with a higher price tag.
 

Pros of the RML390c

 
The   RML 390C  is a low price option   to  get a colored   rack. It is also compact and can fit into more environments than its bigger counterparts. The westside spacing and compatibility with the Monster lite series set you up for future upgrades in case you want   to  do them. 
 

Cons of the RML390C

 
For the price of an   RML 390C, you can get more real estate from the Infinity series or fortis racks. If you don't care that much about the color you are probably better of going for an   RM4 Fortis  or   RML 490.
 
 

Alternatives to the RML 390C

 
Alternatives   to  the   RML 390C  are 
 
 
The   RM4  is still below the $1000 threshold but gives you more   rack  space and makes you part of the   Rogue  Monster family. This is the part of the product line where   Rogue  adds new ideas more frequently. If you want   to  go big and do not care about color this is the better option at a minimally higher investment. The downside with this   rack  is that you will not get the Westside holes. 
 
The RML 490 is the big black brother of the   RML 390C  if you don't make your   rack  being black and you want the westside spaced holes, this is the one   to  go for. It is only minimally higher in price and still delivers. You get a full   rack  in black for the price of a half   rack  in color.
