Rogue Fitness HOME GYM | $$$ SAVING TIPS

Share this:

Overview of my home gym setup and some important money-saving tips when building a Rogue home gym. I wanted to buy Rogue Fitness equipment but also keep my home gym cost down. This turned out to be no easy task! After a ton of research, I came up with the best value when putting together Rogue home gym.

In this video, I also show you how to build a deadlift platform. Most DIY deadlift platform are one piece with a wood top, but I wanted mine to be 3 pieces and all rubber. This lets me easily transport it and do deficit deadlifts if I want.

Overall, I’m really happy I was able to build an affordable home gym. I hope this video was helpful and gave you some good powerlifting home gym ideas!

    Nice video. I just recently got same rack myself. Can i ask if yours is perfectly balanced? Mine is a little shaking if I push it and i can see one pair of the diagonal foot is slightly up compared to the other pair. Do you know if this would be still safe to use? seems solid when i try pull up

    First impressions – decent quality for home use, size was perfect easy to assemble. Based on some reviews/comments on Amazon. I purchased 3/8 X 1 1/2 washers to avoid any cracking near the bolts. Other than that I had it unboxed and assembled in 15 minutes

    If you want to save money I would suggest you don't buy Rogue. Many other brands out there that will have similar quality for less money. I like that Rogue is made in the USA but there's other US companies like REP that have great equipment for less.

    so 'saving tips' i assume is just, buy power rack and bench instead of other gear. ez lol


    what is the size of your room. And do you have any cardio equipment in the room

    Shipping was literally 10%. In Australia we have a 10% on everything, bought locally or from O/S.
    Hardly anything to complain about.
    Overall that is a sweet package you bought there.

    Hey man, do you still own and use the Rogue Adjustable 2.0 bench after all this time?

    Ever get frustrated with the lack of seat adjustments? Or any other complaints?

    Thank you for your perspective
