If I needed something that could be dissassembled fairly quickly and stored flat this looked like it would do the trick. You should be able to undo the hand screws in the back and fold it flat:

If you can install it via drilling into your wall, Rogue sells a full power rack that folds flat back against your wall when not using it for $500:

If you’re not going to squat more than 155 at a time, it makes a lot more sense to simply do a dumbbell routine, here’s one suggestion:

I think all you need for that is dumbells, a bench, and a pullup bar.

If you want to lift more than that with a barbell, I’d suggest something like this:

It appears to come apart in the back via large handscrews, and the black piece in the back is completely removeable, so you can stack it flat against a wall (preferably indoors) while you’re not using it.

If you want to do barbell squats, you needs some sort of rack to hold up the barbell while you load plates on it.

If you want to do barbell squats this is the minimum you should be using (Pro Series 204 Barbell Support):
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DPLXYPY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1ADF3YRBVHJKE&coliid=I113JUOCU5FWFK

It holds the bar up, and has a safety catch if you can’t get the bar back up (for both squats and bench press), and it appears to come apart fairly easily in the back, so if max space is a concern you should be able to take it apart and lean it stacked against the wall fairly easily.

If you’re in an apartment, you also might want to consider whether it’s a good idea to be trying to lift large amounts of weight when your is floor is likely made up of 2×4’s and thin sheets of wood though.

Your other option is to go for doing dumbell versions of squats. I wouldn’t do the generic “dumbell squat” it’s not a very good exercise in my experience, I would do the 1 leg variations.

Here was a recent thread on a few:

Here’s a dumbbell program:

This was an article from Mike Boyle on why he removed squats from his programs when training athletes:

This is most of the info I know on it.

this is the one i got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DPLXYPY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

primarily for the price and because it has safety bars
