Rogue R4 Power Rack
The Rogue R-4 Rack can be considered the bigger brother to the R-3. It features a bigger footprint and a more generous walk-in space, giving you plenty of room for an intense workout. Like all Rogue Fitness products, it is made from heavy-duty steel framing. This rack is ideal for professional athletes and home gym trainers alike. This one will require a little more space in your garage than the R-3, but you will be rewarded with greater functionality in the end. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at the Rogue R-4 Power Rack. We will give you all the information you need to make an informed buying decision.
It comes standard with a single skinny pull up bar and a fat/skinny bar
Comes with J-Cups, Band Pegs, and Pin and Pipe Safeties with optional plate storage
Features a roomy footprint at 53 inches by 53 inches
It does not come with hardware for mounting it to the floor
Rogue R-4 Power Rack features the Westside hole spacing system, where you get one-inch hole separations through the bench press area. Below and above that area, the spacings are two inches apart. This makes it very easy for you to get a customized fit when setting up the bar for squats, the bench or deadlifts. You can put them precisely where you want them.
The R-4 is compatible with the full range of Rogue accessories. That means that you are able to add to its functionality with the Matador, Landmine, Vertical Bar Hanger and Multi-grip Crossbar. You also get two pull up bars, 43-inch fat/skinny bar, and a 43-inch single skinny bar.
The Rogue R-4 Power Rack is a floor bolt-down unit. However, you do not get the mounting hardware as standard. You can purchase this as an extra. This unit carries the Rogue life-time warranty.
At Rogue, the welds and laser cuts are all inspected at every single step of the process to make sure they are strong and will look good. Once the powder coat process is complete, each part is then again inspected for the perfect finish. Then the whole package gets one more final complete check for quality assurance before it is shipped. Once you receive the rack, you will not have to worry about anything because there is a lifetime warranty on the R-4 by Rogue.
You can not only add the bar, bench, and plates to your gym set up, but you can also expand the entire power rack too. The Rogue Infinity Matador is a very popular choice. It gives you the versatility of having a secure dip station which is fully adjustable. The Matador is made with 7 gauge steel and has welded joints and an anchoring system that locks in to create max stability. It also has comfort grip handles. The Matador weighs 26 pounds and is easy to install and stow away which makes it very useful as an add-on. You can mount the Matador at their preferred height to create a customized dipping station.
Another popular alternative is the Vertical Bar Hanger. It is available as either a single or triple bar storage accessory. This accessory is made from thick formed steel and a protective plastic layer lining. Instead of having to slide your barbell sleeve first in a floor tube, this hanger allows you to set up a hanger mounted to your rack or the wall which can store your bars above the ground. The lining, made of UHMW plastic, helps to prevent harsh contact with the collar when you set it on the hanger. Another plastic layer is on the edge to keep each bar stable and secure while you are not using it.
The Multi-Grip Crossmember is the perfect accessory if you like to change your grip when you are working over your head. It has a wide-neutral grip that is the best for your pull-ups which target the mobility and strength of your upper body. The narrow-neutral area can do the false-grip muscle-up position which always needs work. The dead hang can be done with the traditional grip. These and so many other available accessories can help you to personalize your rack to get exactly what you need out of it for your workout.

Benefits Of Using A Power Rack
You can choose to use dumbbells instead of a bar for your upper body workouts if you want. You can also use the power rack as a squat rack. The power racks are perfect for heavy partials to help you develop your strength while you are testing heavier weights in your workout sessions. You can also use it for functional isometrics. A power rack is just a wonderfully simple exercise machine, but it will be versatile enough to help you with your goals safely.
