New Rogue Multi-Grip Bars – Overview
Multi-grip bars challenge your muscles with multiple options to hold them, relieving some undesirable discomfort and strain that can hurt your workouts and restrict daily ventures. Multi-grip bars are easy on your shoulders and save them from unpleasant pain experienced repeatedly with a conventional barbell. They are versatile and are ideal for completing various exercises.
Multi-grip bars are more comfortable, promote a more natural position, and align your muscle and joints. They also make you stronger in different ways and are very helpful in forming the triceps via the neutral grip pressing exercises. Multi-grip bars also improve balance and work your upper and lower body with limitless workouts. You can do pull-ups, pus-ups, overhead presses, and more with them.
Rogue MG-4F Multi-Grip Bar
The MG-4F Multi-Grip Bar’s friction welded sleeves are available with a 9” loadable length or 15.5” of loadable length and employ the same internal parts as the standard barbells. They rotate on shafts assembled from the same stainless steel as the power bars. The standard 51.5” distance between the sleeves makes the bar rackable on any Rogue power rack, rig, squat stand, or bench. You can also order extra pairs of straight, 16-degree, or 20-degree handles in addition to the pair of straight handles included with the MG-4F. The handles can be spaced anywhere from a minimum of 6” to a maximum of 26” apart, allowing you to customize your bar for various movements from close-grip presses and triceps work to biomechanically optimized grips at shoulder-width and beyond.
The sleeves, handles, and hardware of the MG-4F are all finished in stainless steel or Rogue’s proprietary matte black finish. They are remarkably durable, corrosion-resistant options that will retain the look and performance of the sleeves. When applied, the proprietary matte black finish doesn’t add any thickness, so the stainless and black handle options will feel just as they would coming straight out of the lathe.
Rogue MG-4C Multi-Grip Camber Bar
The MG-4C Multi-Grip Camber Bar is the latest development of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell with a patent-pending design that offers two significant advantages over other multi-grip bars on the market: First is, its sleeves rotate in the style of a standard barbell, and come in your choice of two practically indestructible finishes. The second advantage is that you can choose both the width and angle of the handles, creating a bar that is optimized for your size and training preferences. The 41” frame part of the bar is constructed from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” plates, a machined socket, and a matte black powder coat finish.
The cambered shape with 3.5” of drop enables a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on specific movements (such as bench or rows). It helps better stability, as the bar’s center of mass is close to hand placement lower. The sleeves are assembled to the shafts but with a unique interlocking taper design that enables easy assembly with a single nut using the included wrench. The joint assembled by this interlocking taper is as strong as a weld and will hold up to whatever you throw at it.
