Overhead Squat Weightlifting
Rogue Beater Bar
The Beater bar is a 31 MM bar with no center knurling and has Olympic knurling marks. The shaft is black zinc and the sleeves are bright zinc coated. This bar is not made for competitive olifts, it is meant to be the bar that takes a high rep beating where the diameter of the shaft is not essential.
Rogue ES-1 Echo Squat Stand
Just the bare essentials. This stand can handle your 500LB back squat with ease. We went back to the drawing board and came up with a squat stand for those of you on a budget. Still constructed at the Rogue Factory in Columbus Ohio, this stand is everything you expect from Rogue: a heavy duty quality made piece of equipment. We didn't cut any corners on this one. Now you can get a US made squat stand for the same price others are selling flimsy imports for.
