Re: Rogue Chan Bar

Well said Daniel. I totally agree, and that is my preferred bar setup at this point. One 29mm "power" bar, one 28mm Oly bar, and one 28.5 multi-purpose. If you're only shooting for one bar, the...

Re: Rogue - Black Friday?

Yeah, it was still a splurge for me at $195. I told myself if they had the timer for 200 or less, I was buying.. so I did. I'm very excited to add that to the home gym.

Re: What did you buy on Black Friday?

Picked up Rogue's Echo Timer (was $75 off) and also Rogue's Froning parkerized bar (also $75 off). I've been wanting the timer, but it was just so expensive.. the sale was perfect. The Froning bar...

Re: 2-person Garage Gym

That's a pretty decent size.. I lifted with three people in an 18' x9' space for a couple years. Rogue R3 rack was on one side, other side had a pull up bar and space for another lifting area...

Re: Rogue - Black Friday?

I will say it's pretty LAME this year that I can have 4 large items in my cart and most of the smaller items don't count this year to count in the 5 items ship for $5. Chalk, Blender bottle, Water...

Re: thoughts on rogue imperfection bars

I totally agree. I upgraded to the latest comp bumpers from Rogue (from their older style) and the 'new' ones are Outstanding. I even weighed them just for kicks, and they were ALL within 10 grams...

Re: Rogue R3 Rack 24" or 30"

I've had both 24" and now 30" depth. Get the 30" if you have the space. 30" really feels like the perfect depth.

Re: new KB design by Rogue

Sweet. Looking forward to your impressions. I don't understand all the hate before people even try them. Of course they won't work exactly like a kettlebell. They're not traditional kettlebells. ...

Re: Reducing noise during deadlifts

Yes, but a quiet bar will also help. Some nicer bars do not "clang" when you set them down. Horse stall mat/s + bumpers + nice bar = pretty quiet deadlifts. That's my exact setup at the moment and...

Re: Used Rogue Barbells from the Games

Yeah I signed up for notifications on games bumpers, but never got any this year. Oh well. Probably didn't NEED any anyway. Ha

Re: Barbell shipping tube - where to buy?

FYI, I've used PVC "tube" from a hardware store when I was out of typical cardboard tubes.. I glued and screwed the end cap on. Bar arrived mint with no issues. Also, shipping a bar is EXPENSIVE...

Re: Air Conditioning

Same here. I wonder if the guy has stock in the fan or the insulated inner sleeve. Lol. Mine did NOTHING. I think it just made my gym more humid. What a waste of half a day and $40. Ah well.

Re: Resistance band shelf life?

Have you done any 'maintenance' on them? Serious question. The last set I bought recommended to wipe them down with any armor-all type rubber conditioner product to keep them from drying out. I've...

Re: Nike Metcon

thanks for the heads up on these! That was the colorway I wanted.. Sweet. Economy shipping is a bummer, but I'm just spoiled with Amazon Prime. Ha

Glad they're taking care of you Jason. It's no fun having to do without a bar for even a couple weeks..

Re: comprehensive barbell list 2015

That's garbage. That definitely does not sound like a "Lifetime Warranty" to me. That's exactly why Rogue gets 99% of my business. I've had a company send me a new bar and not even have to ship...

Re: comprehensive barbell list 2015

Good luck. I've also had MUCH better experiences with Rogue than MDUSA. I pretty much only buy Rogue stuff now.

Re: FINALLY my home gym edition 1

Did you get the black zinc or bare steel Ohio Power Bar? I know the bare steel one feels pretty aggressive, but, obviously, knurl is very subjective. Just wondering if the black zinc one maybe is...

Re: Incline press with flat rogue bench

I've thought about doing this too. I just couldn't justify the benefits enough vs. the risk. I'm sure there is a way.. I just don't think it's a good idea, safety wise..

Re: FINALLY my home gym edition 1

Thanks for sharing your gym progress Drew. Very cool to see it coming together. I just wanted to echo Mark's statement. "Mech6" does some INCREDIBLE work up there in Canada. Dude is a super nice...

Re: comprehensive barbell list 2015

Lot of great info in these past few posts. There's so many great bars out right now.

I haven't seen much info on American Barbell so I thought I'd add my thoughts..
I picked up the American Barbell...

Re: Rogue KG Comp Plates - 2015

Whoa those change plates are purdy!
Keep up the great work Bill! We'd love to see some color change plates in LBs too, if possible.. :D
