The four configurations that the Monster Lite comes in provides you with between one and three squat / bench press stations, and between three and seven pull up stations. The rig also comes with J-Cups.
The Monster Lite comes in four configurations - (W-10, W-14, W-20, W-24). These provide you with a range of workout stations, from 2 for the ML-10 to 5 for the ML-24. The ML-24 provides you with 3 squat / bench press stations and 7 pull up stations. However, the rig is fully expandable, meaning that your options are endless.
