Using Both Sides of Rogue R3

I tried searching for this, but "R3" is too short for the search to work, and after an hour of reading through various garage gym threads I realize I might not have seen it here, but I have seen a picture somewhere of a guy who was using both sides of his R3 rack, as in he bought an extra set of J cups and turned it into a rack capable of having 2 squat positions on the outside, with the option to just move inside the rack for heavy weight where the safety of the rack would be helpful. Anyone else tried this? Or have pictures?

Looking into doing this for my garage set up. Currently have an S-2 and love it, but would love to be able to have two squat positions without the bigger foot print of two seperate racks.

Are there any other racks out there that don't have the bottom crossmember that would allow this setup besides the Rogue line? Just trying to check all possibilities.

Matty is quick.

It's a great setup. I'm surprised it isn't more common.

Re: Using Both Sides of Rogue R3

That's the one! Thanks guys.

And yeah Mike, with the functionality of that setup, I'm very surprised it isn't more common either. I guess part of it is that most power racks have a lower crossmember that would prevent this type of setup, but for the rogue community, it seems like a great way to go. I might have to save up a couple hundred bucks and sell my S-2 and go that route.

Thanks for locating it for me Matty, and for the idea Mike.

Re: Using Both Sides of Rogue R3

I have an R-3 that we use both sides for squatting/pressing. It works great and saves on space. We've been running out of our garage for a little over a month. If I were to start over I would have bought the Rogue s-4 squat stands and do wall mounted P-4s.

As a +1 - I've got that exact setup in my garage and it works just fine - https://imgur.com/a/kPf2m are some pictures, about the 4th one down illustrates it best. The R-3 is crazy versatile!

Thought of this set up before, looks solid. Thanks for letting us know it will work.
