Overview and review of the IWF Olympic women bar

 

The IWF Olympic women barbell is the IWF approved women bar from Rogue. The main differences to the men’s bar are the weight, the diameter and the price of $525. This bar meets the standards to be used by Olympians. I n addition rogue added a design with Cerakote which makes it one of the first barbells with  IPF approval which is just not plain steel. The specifications of the bar are: 

 

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA with US and EU Steel

  • Women’s Bearing Bar (International Weightlifting Federation standards)

  • Bar Weight: 15KG

  • Shaft Diameter: 25MM

  • 215,000 PSI Tensile Strength EU Steel

  • Olympic Knurl Marks (no center knurl)

  • Bar Length: 79.14"

  • Distance Between Sleeves: 51.50"

  • Loadable Sleeve Length: 12.50"

  • Black Cerakote Color Finish w/ Chrome Sleeves

  • Official IWF branding on center of shaft and endcaps

 

If you always wanted some an Olympic barbell with some extra design this one is for you.

 

Pros of the Cerakote IWF women bar 

 

The pros of the Cerakote IWF bar are: 

 

  • IWF approval 

  • Price 

  • Design 

 

The Cerakote women bar is one of the few bars of Rogue which Cary the prestigious IWF approval. This means that it is build to the highest demands which live up to the bar being used by Olympians. The IWF has the strongest demands on sticking to their specifications with a minimum margin for error to keep competitions fair and comparable. Compared to Eleiko bars the Rogue bar is comparatively cheap to achieve the same goal.

 

Cons of the IWF Cerakote bar 

 

The cons of the IWF Cerakote bar are: 

 

  • Cerakote coating 

  • Cost 

  • Design 

 

The Cerakote coating is not an ideal combination with steel plates. These bars also do not will with metal rack pins. Cerakote tends to scratch a lot faster than stainless steel on metal to metal contacts. 

 

The cost of the Cerakote IWF women bar is considerable when you combine it to the lower Rogue ranges. If you are looking for an all-purpose bar for your home gym or CrossFit bis you can get more bars for the same money. 

 

If you don’t look at this design it works against rather than for this bar. In commercial settings, you might also want to keel the colors and the design more neutral based on the clientele you would like to attract. 

 

Alternatives to the IWF Cerakote bar 

 

The alternatives to the IWF Cerakote bar are:

 

 

The Rogue Ohio bar is the workhorse option from Rogue. This is the all-purpose bar from where the entire Rogue production line started. A solid bet at a reasonable price. 

 

The Rogue Pyrros bar has been finalized by Rogue and the finest Olympic weightlifter of all time to produce the finest Olympic weightlifting bar there is. If you want the household name of the Greek lifting god in your home or gym, this is the bar to go for. 

 

The Rogue Thor bar is another option for someone who wants more than a plain design but leans more towards powerlifting. The Thor bar sleeves are longer and can there fit more plates. 

 

Summary for the IWF Cerakote barbell 

 

If you like the design over stainless steel for an IWF approved barbell this is the way to go. If you are looking for a CrossFit bar save yourself $200 and get the Rogue Ohio barbell. 

 

 


 

Overview and review of the squat bar

 

The Rogue squat bar is a special design that focuses on squatting at $445. The main differences to regular bars are

 

  • Bigger circumference 32mm

  • Longer shaft 

  • Fully knurled 

  • Longer sleeves 

 

This makes it a bar that is aimed at big, heavy squatters. It could also be interesting for some deadlift experiments as the elephant bar from the Arnold has not gone into mass production yet. The specifications of the bar are: 

 

  • Made in the USA

  • Weight: 25 KG

  • Diameter: 32mm

  • Stainless Steel Shaft - 200,000 PSI

  • Aggressive Knurl Pattern along full length of shaft + powerlifting and center knurl marks

  • Bar Length: 94.488

  • Distance Between Sleeves: 56"

  • Loadable Sleeve Length: 16.795"

  • Chrome Sleeves

  • Bronze Bushings

 

Pros of the squat bar 

 

The pros of the squat bar compared to other bars are in the name. The design features are inbuilt to maximize big squats. 

 

  • Longer sleeves 

  • Longer shaft

  • Full knurling 

  • 32mm 

 

Longer sleeves will enable you to put more weight on the bar with rubber or steel plates.  If you see Ray Williams squatting you can get an idea of why he might run out of space on the sleeves. 

 

32mm stainless steel will keep the whip at bay. While you want whip in an Olympic barbell to make use of momentum to get the bar overhead, it is not a desirable feature in a squat bar. You want to minimize 1000 pounds taking a life on their own on your back. 

 

The full knurling will provide more grip to your back. There are other bars out there with center knurls which does almost the same thing for you. 

 

The longer shaft will make it less like for you to bump into the rack when oh are walking out very heavy weights. Depending on your setup this can be annoying. I injured myself twice because of twisting my upper body when walking out of a setup and touching off the j cups. 

 

Cons of the squat bar 

 

The cons of the squat bar are

 

  • No IPF / IWF approval 

  • Space requirements 

  • Limited use 

  • Price 

 

If you are considering the squat bar because you want to break records, keep in mind that it is not approved for the IPF or IWF. You will still earn respect for posting the first 500kg raw squat, which this bar is basically built for, but it won’t count in these federations. 

 

If you are setting up your home gym in a very crammed place, keep in mind that this bar will protrude even further to the sides. If you have already cut it very thing with the distance of your bar to the wall or another rack, the squat bar might just push it over the edge. 

 

The squat bar is mainly limited to squats. As it has bushing and knurling all across the bar it might not be the best option for Olympic lifts, the bench press, and deadlifts. 

 

For the price you are looking at you can get more versatile barbells for your home gym with a cooler design. If you are setting up your home gym the squat bar might not be the go-to option. 

 

Alternatives to the squat bar 

 

Alternatives to the squat bar are 

 

 

The Rogue Chan bar is a good alternative for mere mortals who don’t squat 400kg. It is cheaper than the squat bar, has a poppier design and can also be used for Oly lifts. If I was to spend $400 on a starter barbell for my home gym it would be this one. 

 

The duffalo bar is an interesting bar for people who squat 800 pounds plus on a regular basis. This bar has been invented at Kabuki strength which is headed by Chris Duffin. The design is aimed at relieving stress on the shoulder while bench pressing and squatting. This is a very interesting second bar to buy instead of the squat bar, even though it costs $200 more. 

 

Summary for the squat bar 

 

The squat bar is a great bar for someone who actually needs it. This would be people who squat more than 300kg on a regular basis. There are not that many of them around. I personally think for a second barbell in your home gym you are better off going with safety or duffalo bar. For a commercial 


Overview and review Monster Slinger

 

 

The Rogue slinger is an attachment to turn your existing rogue into a lat pulldown and ranges from $225 to $290 depending on which version you are getting. The slinger can be used with a resistance band or plate loaded option. This is an item where you have to pay special attention to the details to get the right fit. The specifications are: 

 

  • (2) Slinger Mounting Plates

  • (2) 6" Cable Pulleys

  • (1) 1/4" MIL Spec Cable with Rogue made hardware

  • (1) Slinger Extension Strap - for 100” and 108” units

  • (1) Slinger Band Sheath - 1000D Cordura

  • (2) Carabiners

  • (2) Black Zinc 1" Monster Bolt Assemblies

  • (2) Rubber Grommets for protecting the cable

 

This is a cost-efficient solution for a lat pulldown which is not completely makeshift. Rogue was smart by marketing its pulley system as a separate product while they are working on a bigger range of machines with a reflex for commercial gyms. Keep in mind that this is not as tidy a solution as a proper lat pull and will have some downsides when you use it. 

 

Pros of the Rogue Slinger 

 

The pros of the Rogue slinger are

 

  • The price 

  • Space 

  • The value for money 

 

The Rogue slingers price and space requirements are superior to a full lat pull machine which is ten times the cost. If you already have a rogue rack, the slinger is an easy addition to add pulley work to your exercise regimen without breaking the bank or a wall in your home gym. 

 

Cons of the Rogue Slinger 

 

Cons of the Rogue slinger are:

 

  • Limited weight options 

  • Storage when not used 

  • Exposed mechanics 

 

The Rogue slinger is better than bands for resistance, but will not beat a traditional weight stack in terms of ease of use and amount of resistance provided. 

 

The slinger can be annoying when you are not using it. Rogue did not think about where the cables while going when you are not using the slinger. A cheaper pulley system will be easier to remove and get out of the way fast, but also be less stable when used. Rogue has the Spud Inc. pulley system in its shop which would fit that bill. 

 

Alternatives to the slinger 

 

 

The Rogue lat pull-down will put you back around $2000. With this, you get a full stand-alone lat pull and rowing machine including the weights. The Rogue lat pull is available as an attachment to Rogue Monster racks or stand-alone. The weight stacks and mechanics are quite exposed, but storing nothing will get in the way. Compared to the slinger it is a lot more space and money to be invested for faster and more convenient training at higher resistance. 

 

The Rogue LP2 is the next generation of Rogue lat pull machines which combines the pulley from the slinger with the components from the lat pull down from Rogue. This machine will put you back around $3000 and will be the right choice for a commercial setting as it exposes the weight stacks and mechanics less compared to the lat pull. For any home gym, you would be overshooting the target in my opinion with this machine. 

 

The spud inc pulley system is a little cheaper than the slinger. It is easier to install and remove from the rack than the slinger but therefore also less stable. The spud inc is the right choice of you want o transport your lat pull often or get it out if the way faster. In return, you will not go crazy on weights with this one.

 

Summary of the slinger 

 

The Rogue slinger is a good solution if you already own a rogue rack. If you do not have space or money for a lat pull go for the slinger. Otherwise, invest in a proper lat pull to be proud and train without annoying cables in your way. 


 

Overview of the Rogue IWF collars

 

The IWF Rogue collars are the top of the line collars from Rogue which can also be used in IWF competitions. They cost $175. Their weight is 2.5kg each and they come in with a tolerance of 10g. The specifications of the Rogue IWF collars are: 

 

  • IWF Approved

  • Sold In Pairs

  • Weight: 2.5KG each (5KG total)

  • Width: approx 3" (77MM) to 3.625" (92MM)

  • Precision CNC milled-steel body

  • Investment-cast to maximize strength and create flawless surface texture

  • Advanced Ball-Lever mechanism for firm hold, easy adjustments

  • Oversized Pressure Sleeve

  • Hard Chrome finish

  • Engraved Rogue Logo

  • 2 Year Warranty

 

These are collars for the serious athlete who wants to simulate Olympic weightlifting competition surroundings n their training at home or in the gym. 

 

Pros of the Rogue IWF collars 

 

The pros of the Rogue IWF collars are:

 

  • Precision weight 

  • Close grip 

  • Durability 

 

The collars are designed to keep plates firmly in place even if you drop very heavy weights from overhead. With their precision manufacturing, they also live up to the standards of the IWF for Olympic weightlifting competitions that allow very low tolerance on a variation on weight by the manufacturer. Both of these attributes make these collars a very durable option. 

 

Cons of the Rogue IWF collars are 

 

The cons of the Rogue IWF collars are: 

 

  • Price 

  • Ease of use 

  • Weight

 

With $175 per pair, these collars are at the extreme end of the spectrum for collars. For training purposes, you can also use spring or Aluminium collars which cost and weigh less. These are usually easier to get on and off and are easier to handle due to their lower weight. 

 

Alternatives to the IWF collars 

 

Alternatives to the IWF collars are:

 

 

Spring collars are the cheapest option you can get in the market. They are easy to get on and off and are sold at $9.75. Their downside is that they can scratch your barbell more than other options. 

 

OSO and Aluminum collars are light and come in various designs. They are also easy to get on and off the bar without scratching it. Their downside is that they make it more likely for the plates to move on continuous drops. 

 

Summary of the IWF collars 

 

First choice for anyone who is serious about competing in Olympic weightlifting. For others, these collars are overkill in handling and price. 

 

Overview and review of the Rogue fleck plate

 

The Rogue Feck plates are the newest edition to the line up of Rogue plates and range from $50 for a pair of 10LB plates to $625 for a 350LB set. This puts the price to $0.56 per pound. The distinguishing factors of the fleck plate are its claimed precision in weight and the fleck design. With this, these bumper plates add some color to your gym without breaking the bank as competition bumper plates would do. The specs of these plates are:

 

Plate Breakdown: Weight, Color & Width

  • 10LB - Black & Grey, 0.85”

  • 15LB - Black & White, 1.2”

  • 25LB - Black & Green, 1.6”

  • 35LB - Black & Yellow, 2.08”

  • 45LB - Black & Blue, 2.76”

  • 55LB - Black & Red, 3.02”

 

Specifications:

  • Diameter: 450mm (+/- 3mm) / 17.72 inches

  • Collar Opening: 50.40mm / 1.98 inches

  • 304 Stainless Steel Inserts

  • Weight Tolerance: +/- 1% claimed weight

  • Durometer: 90

  • Minimal Bounce

  • Black + Color Fleck Finish

  • Imported from Chin

This is a good option if you want some color, but not spend too much money on your bumper plates. 

 

Pros of the fleck plate

 

The pros of the fleck plate are:

 

  • Unique design

  • Value for money

  • Bumper

 

The design of the fleck plates is very unique. As long as you like you will be hard-pressed to find something comparable. I personally like them as a compromise between black bumper plates and colored competition plates. 

 

For the color and precision, you are getting these plates are relatively cheap compared to other rogue plates available. If you insist to see easily from a distance which plates you have, this is the way to go. 

 

As these plates are bumper plates they come with the benefit of being outdoor-friendly. You can also drop them regularly without wrecking your barbell, platform or floor. 

 

Cons of the Fleck bumper plates

 

The cons of the fleck bumper plates are:

 

  • Sleeve space

  • Precision

  • Made in China

 

The challenge that all bumper plates have is that they take up more real estate on a bar sleeve than steel plates. If you want to maximize the amount of weight you can put on your barbell, this is not the right set of plates to get. 

 

While these bumper plates claim high precision, I would be inclined to test that first. The reason being is that they are not manufactured by Rogue themselves and do not have inlets for high precision adjustments like calibrated plates. A blanket statement on shipped bumper plates from china with 1% is a tall order with no inlets for micro-adjustments. It won't matter if you buy them for your Crossfit gym or commercial gym, but if you are training for weightlifting or powerlifting competitions stay with the calibrated plates.

 

While the design and price are very tempting some might not want to support products that are made in China based on principle or legal requirements as a government agency. In this case, you might refer to other Rogue plates.

 

Alternatives to the Rogue fleck plates

 

Alternatives to the Rogue fleck plates are:

 

 

Rogue bumper plates are the same idea as the fleck plates minus the color. They are cheap, can be used everywhere and forgiving to abuse and toes. 

 

The precision machined steel plates from Rogue are the best choice for powerlifters who want precision but do not want to break the bank with calibrated plates. These Olympic plates are slightly more costly than the fleck plates.

 

 The Rogue Fleck plates are the newest edition to the line up of Rogue plates and range from $50 for a pair of 10LB plates to $625 for a 350LB set. This puts the price to $0.56 per pound. The distinguishing factors of the fleck plate are its claimed precision in weight and the fleck design. With this, these bumper plates add some color to your gym without breaking the bank as competition bumper plates would do. The specs of these plates are:

Summary of the fleck plates 

 

Fleck plates are the right choice if you want colored plates from Rogue at a reasonable price.

The rack-mounted Rogue Monster Slinger™ is a new cable-pulley and band resistance system that can deliver the same training benefits of a traditional Lat Pulldown Machine with better space and cost efficiency. Compatible exclusively with Monster 2.0 Power Racks and the racked version of our Monster Rig 2.0, the Monster Slinger package includes adjustable components for set-up on a 90”, 100”, or 108” unit.

Optional Grip Strap & Carabiner Pair For customers planning to install the Slinger on a 108” tall rack, this add-on package can help compensate for the cable usage difference, allowing shorter athletes to have a freer range of motion and a more effective workout. The strap itself is 12” long x 1.5” wide. Optional Rogue Stainless Steel Lat Bar Attachment Fully knurled w/ laser-cut Rogue branding and Black Zinc/Bright Zinc finish. 1.125" diameter, 48" across Optional Tricep Strap & Resistance Band Kit Comes with an assortment of bands for tricep work and gradual adjustments on lat pulldown movements: (2) #0 Orange Monster Bands (15 LB resistance)* (1) #1 Red Monster Band (30 LB)* (1) #2 Blue Monster Band (50 LB)* (1) #3 Green Monster Band (65 LB)* Choice of either (1) Rogue Tricep Strap or (1) Pioneer Leather Tricep Strap *Due to the 41” length of our Monster Bands, we suggest doubling up each band, i.e., feeding the band through the bottom carabiner (attached to the extension strap) until it is centered, then connecting both ends of the band to the top carabiner (attached to the cable). This will greatly increase the resistance beyond the bands’ standard LB increments. Customers interested in lighter weights can also explore our full line-up of Monster Bands, available a la carte. Important: All resistance bands are wear and tear items and should be inspected prior to each and every use. We always recommend that the provided Slinger Band Sheath be used in conjunction with resistance bands on the Monster Slinger.

Rogue Fitness has been providing sneak peaks on this system for some time now.

Rogue Fitness is known for making some of the best and most popular gym equipment currently on the market. Their equipment is known for being overbuilt and made to withstand years of abuse whether in garage gym or commercial facility.

This rack-mounted contraption will allow lifters to utilize traditional Lat Pulldown Machine style exercises. Many garage gyms don’t have the luxury or room to host several pieces of accessory equipment beyond a platform and a Monster 2.0 Power Rack, so its nice of Rogue to give these gyms a sharp-looking option.

As stated above, the rack-mounted Slinger is made exclusively for the Monster 2.0 Power Racks and the racked version of the Monster Rig 2.0.

One of the great features about the slinger is the state-of-the-art design. They made sure that it would look like a great add-on to your power rack (not gimmicky). But best of all, the band/cable set-up yields a fluid motion so that no parts will be swinging.

Here are the specs:

· Patent Pending Design

· Made in the USA

· Rack-Mounted Cable Pulley / Lat Pulldown System

· Compatible ONLY with Rogue Monster Rack 2.0 and racked Monster Rig 2.0 units

· Extends 7” out from and above upright to which it is mounted

· Attachment straps and resistance bands sold separately from standard package

· User Assembly Required

· Color is Black

· Length is 22.4” (Extends 7” beyond the face of mounting upright)

· Height is 9.75” (Extends 7” above to of upright)

· Cables are MIL Spec 0.25” Steel Cable

· Optional Grip Strap & Carabiner Pair

· Optional Rogue Stainless Steel Lat Bar Attachment

· Optional Tricep Strap and Resistance Band Kit

The Slinger works by doubling up a Monster Band and attaching it to a carabiner at one end of the rack-mounted extension strap (at the base of the rack) and to the other carabiner that goes to the cable.

The band design prevents swinging as the band pull creates a linear line of resistance between the points of attachment.

Overall, due to the price and build, the Rogue Slinger is sure to be a popular option or add on for those who currently or will purchase a Rogue Monster Rack. It is very clean attachment and will be useful for nearly anyone who wants to go beyond the traditional exercises that you would experience inside of a power rack.

As far as Garage Gym's go, although this would be nice to have, if you have the room for a separate cable system then this may not be your best choice. Band resistance can be an awesome option for some exercises, but the resistance profile is opposite of what you would want to happen for most single joint and pulling movements (as the band gets “heavier” where mechanically you are weakest). However, if you're training for the big lifts, it is nice to have a quick option on hand that allows you to do some quick pumping or fun single joint movements.

I’m sure we will see additional accessories or add-ons to be made with the Slinger. An attachable seat with thigh restraints to go onto the power rack would be a great add-on to see!

MAXPRO SmartConnect Home Gym Review: Portable and Versatile (2021) by Coop

Rogue Slinger Review: The TRUTH After 1 Year!

One of my favorite exercises to do at the gym is the lat pulldown.

It’s a great exercise for the back, shoulders, and arms. It’s also a great way to get a lot of volume work on the back muscles – without the drawbacks of pull-ups or chin-ups.

The problem with pull-ups or chin-ups is that your grip can be a limiting factor – and it’s very hard to work the pull-up with anything less than full body weight.

The biggest impediment to performing the lat pulldown in your home or garage gym is that it requires a pretty expensive machine – and it usually takes a lot of space.

We’re going to review the best lat pulldown machines and attachments that are available for the garage gym enthusiast.

As an added bonus, many of these machines will let you perform the low row as well – another potent back exercise that’s hard to do without a cable machine.

Sure, you can row a heavy barbell – but then it becomes more of a lower back focus, as opposed to the lats.

Here’s the gear we are going to review in this article:

The Rogue Cable Tower CT-1 features a 250 lb weights stack with a 2:1 pulley ratio and is great for a wide range of cable machine exercises, including rows, curls, tricep pushdowns, cable crossovers, and more.

Standalone Lat Pulldown Machines for your Home Gym

Let’s look at standalone lat pulldown machines first – those that don’t require a power rack.

We’re going to look at units for the home gym or garage gym that are versatile – and space saving.

Rogue Fitness LP-2 Lat Pulldown/Low Row Machine

First, we’re going to look at the Rogue LP-2 Lat Pulldown/Low Row Machine.

This is Rogue’s latest design for a standalone lat pulldown machine – and it’s specifically targeted to home users.

Rogue LP-2 Lat Pulldown / Low Row Machine

First of all, it’s a dual function machine – you can perform both the lat pulldown and the low row.

Rogue LP-2 Low Row and Lat Pulldown machine

That’s important for a home or garage gym – floorspace is usually at a premium. We normally prefer when we can use one piece of equipment to do more than one thing.

The LP-2 is equipped with a 300 lb selectorized weight stack that is labeled in both pounds and kilograms.

The new swing-arm style foam leg rollers keep you securely seated for those heavy lat pulldowns.

It’s made in the USA from 3″x3″ 11 gauge steel – and weighs in at 775 lbs – but Rogue still recommends you bolt it to the floor.

You’ll notice there’s no seat for the low row – that’s good.

You can sit on the floor – right?

Rogue LP-2 Lat Pulldown and Low Row Machine

And that saves a lot of space. The unit has a 70” x 43” footprint.

But, this is a very tall unit – it is 9′ (108″) tall.

Make sure you have enough ceiling height for this.

Regarding shipping – there’s good news and bad news.

Good news: no assembly required, it arrives fully assembled.

Bad news: It ships freight – so there will be some expense in that regard. There’s also limits to where a freight shipment can be delivered.

The LP-2 is Rogue’s latest lat pulldown design – next we’ll look at it’s predecessor.

Rogue Fitness Monster Lat Pulldown/Low Row (Standalone)

The Monster Lat Pulldown/Low Row Standalone was Rogue’s original solution for stand alone back exercising.

As you can see from the picture – it’s a no frills unit.

There’s a 300 lb selectorized weight stack, a seat with leg rollers, and a stainless steel knurled pulldown handle.

We really like the fact that this unit has band pegs built right in – that’s a great way to add more dynamic, continuous tension to your workout – or to simply exceed the resistance limit that the weights alone can provide.

It’s great to be able to perform seated rows – without all the space that a longer rowing seat would normally take up.

This unit is a little shorter than the LP-2 (at 96″ vs 108″).

Footprint is 60″ x 40″ and it weights 605 lbs.

Lastly, while this unit is a little bit cheaper than the LP-2 – it’s harder to get as they are made to order only.

As with the LP-2, this unit will ship fully assembled via freight.

We have one more Rogue option to review…

Rogue CT-1 Cable Tower Machine

Rogue recently released the CT-1 Cable Tower Machine.

The Rogue Cable Tower CT-1 features a 250 lb weights stack with a 2:1 pulley ratio and is great for a wide range of cable machine exercises, including rows, curls, tricep pushdowns, cable crossovers, and more.

First of all, let me say – this is NOT a lat pulldown machine.

But, you could use it for light lat pulldowns with the right handle, and if you scoot a bench up close to it.

But, you’ll have no leg rollers to keep you firmly seated for heavy lifting.

Having said that – this is otherwise a versatile and small footprint item for your home gym – because the pulley system is easily height adjustable.

The height adjustable pulley on the CT-1 has 16 different heights from low to high.

The pulley is height adjustable in 16 locations from low to high.

This means you can use it for low rows (it includes a foot plate), tricep pushdowns, curls, and a whole lot of other exercises that we all love to do with cables.

The Rogue Fitness Cable Tower CT-1 is great for many classic cable machine exercise moves.

Here’s a “seated” row.

You can do seated rows with the Rogue CT-1 Cable Tower.

This CT-1 has a 250 lb weight stack, with 2:1 ratio pulleys.

That means there’s 125 lbs effective resistance.

Like the other units we’ve highlighted from Rogue – it has band pegs so you can add a lot more dynamic resistance if you desire.

The only downside to the CT-1 is that it is 9′ tall (108″) – so make sure it’ll fit in your garage before you buy it.

But, you can do curls on it. Everyone love curls.

All cable machines can do curls from the low pulley.

That brings us to our last lat pulldown standalone option – this is our bargain pick.

Rep Fitness Dual Function Lat Pulldown / Low Row Commercial

The Lat Pull-Down / Mid-Row Dual Function machine from Rep Fitness is a commercial unit – at a bargain price.

Rep Fitness Lat Pull-Down/Mid-Row Dual Function commercial machine

This is not a bad unit.

But, there are some things you should be aware of.

The weight stack is only 240 lbs – with no provision for band attachments.

That’s not going to be enough weight in most hardcore garage gyms.

It’s also billed as being a “mid-row” unit as opposed to a low row – this is because of the fixed seat – which takes up a bit of room.

Overall, it’s a simpler, cheaper unit – but probably not what we’d recommend for hardcore weight lifters and body building.

OK – that’s all the stand alone units we have to review. Let’s look at ways we can extend your power rack to become a lat pulldown machine.

Rack Mounted Lat Pulldown Machines for your Power Rack

If you have a power rack – you can add an attachment to give you the ability to do the lat pulldown, low row, and other cable based exercises.

Now we’ll talk about those.

Rogue Monster Lat Pulldown / Low Row

Got a Rogue Monster series power rack?

Then you can add the Rogue Monster Lat Pulldown / Low Row and add the lat pulldown and low row to your rack.

Make your rack a lat pulldown / low row machine with this Rogue Monster Lat Pulldown addon.

This unit has all the great features of the standalone Monster lat pulldown – the only difference is that it’s made to work with the Monster series rack.

As you can see, it pretty much includes everything the standalone unit does – and that makes it expensive (and big).

Let’s look at some cheaper options.

Rogue Monster Slinger

The Rogue Monster Slinger is a cheaper option to add a cable-pulley system to your Rogue Monster series power rack.

This is a pulley system that attaches to the top of the rack and let’s you use weight plates, bands, or a weight stack as the resistance.

The Rogue Monster Slinger can add a band, plate or weight stack cable pulley to your Monster series power rack.

Please note that each option requires a different purchase option.

Shown above is the plate loaded option being used for lat pulldowns with a lat bar handle.

While this is a very cost-effective solution – be aware it doesn’t provide any leg roller – or a seat – you’ll have to scoot a weight bench up to the rack to sit on.

The Rogue Monster Slinger - mounts to the top of the rack.

But, considering the savings – that’s probably OK.

With these “Slinger” units you can do light lat pulldowns and a variety of pushdowns.

Rogue Monster Slinger is a great option for tricep pushdowns.

But, these are NOT as versatile as the Cable Tower CT-1 because the pulley height isn’t adjustable.

If you have a Monster Lite series rack, or Infinity power rack, there are options for that too.

The Rogue Monster Lite Slinger is meant for the Monster Lite line of power racks.

This version of the slinger offers band resistance only – at this time plate loading or a weight stack are not an option.

The Rogue Monster Lite Slinger is a cable-pulley system that uses bands to provide resistance.

So, the Rogue Monster Lite Slinger can only use bands.

But, it does include a neat band sheath system that ensures a broken band won’t cause injury.

Similarly, for those with the Infinity rack system – there’s a similar option.

The Rogue Infinity Slinger is a bands-only cable-pulley system for use with any Infinity series power rack from Rogue.

Rogue Infinity Slinger

As with the other Slinger units – the caveat is that they should be used for light lat pulldowns only, as there are no leg rollers.

With a weight bench, the Infinity Slinger can be used for light lat pulldowns (there are no leg rollers.)

The Slinger is a very cost effective option – and available for every rack model that Rogue makes – but it does have it’s limitations.

You’ll need to decide what is the best option for you.

Best Lat Pulldown Machines for your Garage Gym – In Summary

Lat pulldowns and low rows are excellent exercise for your lats – and your shoulders, arms, and more.

But, it requires a fairly expensive machine that takes up a lot of room (and height!)

We’ve reviewed several standalone dual function units that target the home or garage gym enthusiast – and give you the best bang for your buck.

And perhaps best of all, those with good power racks can add “slinger” style attachments to turn their rack into a cable machine – for a very cost effective option.
