Titan X-3 Flat Foot Power Rack
The Titan X-3 Flat Foot Rack is one of Titan’s top power rack offerings. This 3×3 rack offers 5/8″ holes, Westside hole spacing, and two height options.
It’s built similar to the X-3 Power Rack but without the need for the rack to be bolted to the ground or to a platform. It also has a single 30″ depth compared to the option of 24″ or 36″ on the regular X-3.

Features & Highlights
- Steel Size – The X-3 Rack from Titan is constructed with 3×3 11-gauge steel and it’s assembled with a bolt-together design. With this being an imported rack, keep in mind that it’s actually 2.95×2.95 (not truly 3×3) since it uses the metric system. This may have an impact on attachment compatibility from American-made companies. More on this in the below attachment section.
- 4 Post Design – As a 4-post rack, you’ll save some space compared to a 6-post rack. There are two other differences worth considering: plate storage and stability. On a 4-post rack, while you can store plates on the back upright, you may find that the plates can interfere with your setup when lifting inside the rack. This rack is unique in that it has a flat foot base that doesn’t require you to bolt to the ground. The downside is that you don’t get the same attachment compatibility as you do on the regular X-3 with crossmembers/side holes.
- Hole/Hardware Sizing – This rack uses 5/8″ hardware, which is one of the most common hardware sizes used on power racks. The rack will accommodate all of Titan’s X-3 accessories as well as some from other companies (read more in the compatibility section below).
- Hole Spacing – The Titan X-3 Flat Foot offers Westside hole spacing, which is a popular feature on 5/8″ racks. The holes are spaced 1″ apart through the bench zone, allowing for more adjustments on your J-cups and safeties. This can be useful for people who are “in-between” sizes. Above and below the Westside section are holes with standard 2″ spacing between them.
- Exterior Rack Dimensions – This rack is space-friendly with a total footprint of 48″ wide, 50″ deep, and either 82″ or 91″ tall. In terms of the uprights themselves, the dimensions are 36″ deep and 48″ wide. If you’re training in a low-ceiling room, the 82″ height will likely appeal to you, although the 91″ height is recommended if you have the clearance.
- Interior Rack Dimensions – The interior lifting area measures 30″ deep, which is an ideal size. It’s plenty comfortable and it reduces the overall footprint of the rack.
- Safety Options – This rack can accommodate pin & pipe safeties or safety straps. I highly recommend the safety straps, as they are much easier to set up and they do a much better job of protecting your barbell. Titan also sells spotter arms to be used inside or outside of your rack. These include a UHMW lining and they do a nice job of protecting yourself and your equipment.
- No Color Options – The Titan X-3 Flat Foot is currently only sold with a black powder coat.
What’s Included in the Box
The Titan X-3 Flat Foot includes several pieces as standard:
- (2) Standard J-Cups
- (1) 2″ diameter Pull-Up Bar
- (1) 1.25″ Diameter Pull-Up Bar
- (4) Uprights (82″ or 91″ Total Height)
- (2) 30″ Crossmembers
- (2) 50″ Bases
You will need to purchase your safeties separately in the attachments section.
The Titan X-3 Flat Foot is constructed with 2×3 steel and 5/8″ hardware, which is compatible with Titan’s X-3 Attachments.
The Lat/Low row allows you to perform cable movements off the back of the rack, the safety straps are more convenient and safer for your barbell, the multi-grip pull-up bar offers several additional pull-up options, and the extension kit converts the rack into a 6-post rack with on-rack plate storage.
Keep in mind that the Flat Foot Version of the X-3 Power Rack does not have side holes or top holes. This means that some attachments will not be compatible. For instance, you cannot use band pegs on the X-3 Flat Foot, but you can on the regular X-3.
As for attachment compatibility outside of Titan Fitness, notable places to look are Rogue Fitness and REP Fitness. Each of these companies offers attachments that will fit 3×3 and 5/8″ hardware (Rogue Monster Lite and REP PR-4000). One thing to keep in mind is that imported racks use the metric system vs. the imperial system on USA-made racks. This means that hole spacing will be slightly shorter. If you find an attachment that has two pins (or a single pin with a second hitch pin) then it may not fit properly. Single-pin attachments tend to work fine.
Another thing to consider is that Titan uses a 48″ width while REP and Rogue use 47″ and 49″, so any attachment that spans the width of their racks will not fit the Titan X-3 without modification.
What They’re Saying at Titan Fitness
The Titan X-3 Power Rack receives very positive feedback from users. With an average rating of 4.9/5, here are some of the things people have said at titan.fitness.
- “All I can say is absolutely awesome!!! Super heavy duty and over built. Gives me piece of mind knowing that it will handle anything I can throw at it. Titan really put a lot of extra in the details as well…grade 5 hardware.. better paint.. just a beast of a rack.”
- “This Titan X-3 rack is a tank! I finally got my flooring in and put this bad boy together (took about 2 hours). I noticed that I didn’t have the 1″ socket required to drive the big heavy duty hardware, so I had to make a trip to Lowe’s and pick up a Craftsman set. Not really a big deal. The powder coating is really consistent and nice, I am glad that I went with the flat foot bottom as I didn’t see the need to mount this 300+ lb. beast to the floor. 3×3 steel outside frame is really sturdy, the 1″ and 2″ pull-up bars are really solid as well. I went with the lever arms for the X-3 and was very impressed with how they compliment this rack. What I love about this the most is that it is high quality, I know it will last a very long time, and that it is customizable. That gives Titan the edge over most other competitors in my opinion.”
- “I love this rack. I can take a beating and keeps on going. I have had my rack for almost 2 years and have not had a problem with it structurally. I am 5’11 and 265 lbs. and I typically lit very heavy. I bought the short version of this rack as I wasn’t sure the tall version would clear my garage door. I chose to go with Titan because of all of the accessories they offer that can attach to their racks for more diverse workouts and to save space. “
