I went with a rack from Titan and have been happy with it. Another thing to think about are all of the accessories that go with the rack. I don’t believe Titan’s attachments fit on the racks from Rogue.


I'm about to get a power rack from them. Its more of a temporary thing until we PCS to another base. We live on base housing and the garage isn't big enough for a rig.

Once i buy a house I'm getting the $600 rig from Rogue.

But when it comes to things like barbells and bumper plates. I will only buy from Rogue

Looking to add some new stuff to the gym

Looking at D-balls or a sand bag

I got the rep fitness sandbag, it seems nice with lots of handles for different things.

re: Home gym equipment
the strongman ones by Rogue don't appear to have handles which is fine. I have a 50 lbs long sang bag for lunges and such. Also don't know if the 100 or 150lbs would be better

re: Home gym equipment
Sandbags with/without handles are fundamentally different challenges. Without handles, half the battle is using your hands and gripping in a way you don't have to with a barbell. Using your hands to control and manipulate a heavy object without something to grab is a whole new challenge.

re: Home gym equipment

re: Home gym equipment
I started a thread the other week but no one replied but Synergee seems to be the next company to be trying to make a dent in the home gym market.

Their new barbell looks damn near like the Ohio Bar

I'm not super familiar with the D Ball, but looking on Google, it looks like that. I was mainly talking about Rogue strongman bags (which I have) vs any sandbag with handles.

re: Home gym equipment
I have the 200 LB, 250 and 300 LB.

I mainly use it for cleans, to/over the shoulder and then for a loaded front carry. I've also used it for squats bearhugged in front of the body.

The Rogue stuff is great. You can toss it, and it holds up well. The overall structure is challenging, but squat enough that it is able to be picked up even if you aren't 6'8.

Titan cage and CAP barbells here. Had them all for a few years and it's held up great.

re: Home gym equipment
Thanks, I think I will order the 150 sandbag and see how I like it. Figured can always fill to only 100 at first to see what type of weight I need.

Can decide on a 100 lbs sandbag or dball after if I want both

Yeah, you can always underfill. I got 3 sizes bc sooner or later, adding or subtracting is a pain in the butt.

It heavily depends on exercises. Over the shoulder, I use the 200. Cleans over bar, I can use the 250. The 300, I just pick and carry bc that ****er is heavy.

re: Home gym equipment
I was thinkning mostly over the shoulders in my metcons or EMOMs so 150 may be good. If I need more I will order bigger next time. 150 seemed like a good place to start
