Rogue Yoke question

I'm trying to research the difference between the Y-1, Y-2, and Y-3 Rogue Yokes. I understand that the "1" is the shortest, "2" medium, and "3" the tallest. Why does this matter though? Am I missing something obvious?

Re: Rogue Yoke question

The extra height of the Y-2 and Y-3 can be used for pullups. They also give some extra room when using the Yoke as a squat rack since you can raise the yoke crossmember to the top of the uprights.

Re: Rogue Yoke question

I built one out of an old rack and made it 2" taller than the Rouge, because I am American and I could. I love Rogue, but I love to build things with my kid and dad more.

Re: Rogue Yoke question

I've also heard about using the extra height to do overhead walks with the yokes, which just sounds horrible

Re: Rogue Yoke question

I am looking for others thoughts. I am interested in a yoke due to the versatility, would the Y-1 work for a rack for squats with a bar if I am 71 inches tall but the rack is 70 inches? I'm guessing no...but I don't think the Y-2 @ 92 inches tall will fit out of my garage to do yoke walks or pushes in the street. Am I missing something here or will I need a rack in addition to the Y-1 if I'd really want a yoke? Thank you for your help!

Nope. You'll just need J-cups.

Re: Rogue Yoke question

And I won't have a problem hitting my head racking or unracking the bar?

Re: Rogue Yoke question

Unless I'm misunderstanding the Y-1 (I converted two S-1s to yokes), these are essentially squat stands with the yoke bar - it just doesn't have the stabilizing cross-member at the feet like the S-1. If you want to use it as a squat stand, then slide off the yoke bar and you have racks.

Cut it down, take out the reciprocating saw, a new blade and cut it. That baby is worth every penny. Just make it fit, either raise the roof or lower the yoke.

I wasn't sure how stable it would be without the crossmember at the feet, but if stability is not an issue then this should be an easy solution.

I definitely could cut it to make it fit out of the garage.

Sean and Tim thank you for your responses!
