Tried to translate the Portuguese word (espaldar) to English and German, but to no success...

Lemme try some different dictionaries.

That's not a "Reck", more likely a "Klimmzugstange".

A "reck" is South African for "bosom":
"Look at the reck on thet!"

It's either a torture machine or a "climb the ladder" home-alone-because-you-can't-do-that-in-your-career.
Or some weird kinky device .
It could also be some weird giant sledge for a bunch of merry smaller individuals...

Ok I give up can someone explain what is that?

It's gymnastics equipment. Just google stall bar exercises and you will be enlightened quick enough.

It belonged to the common sport curriculum when I was a kid, together with the beam and the vault.

It's really odd to me that people have never seen one before...

I was great at "bar" exercices, the rest, not so much.

What about the ladder?
Ok anyway, I see it's some stuff for gym at home

Never had the rope, thank heavens! Every time I see the Simpsons and Milhouse is bullied because he can't climb the thing, I think "that would be me!".

I actually really loved the stall bar exercises. It included speed (who climbs the fastest), strength (push ups), stretching, and generally being a monkey.

They were about 3 meters high in my school, so falling from those could be painful. But that was in the 80's . I'm not sure they are allowed anymore
