Rogue Infinity Rig Review
updated June 6, 2018
A rig power rack system will allow you set up a safe power training area for multiple users. Because rigs can be constantly added to, the size of them is open ended. The world’s most popular rig is the Rogue Infinity. This beast of a set-up is the official rig for the World Cross Games. Let’s check out if it deserves to take pride of place in your garage gym.
Zooming in on the Rogue Infinity Rig
The Rogue Infinity Rig is basically a number of Rogue Infinity power racks that are joined together to allow for multiple use at the same time. It is manufactured with 2 x 3 inch, 11 gauge steel. This is an inch less than the Monster series, but still provides plenty of rigidity in the uprights. While coming in four standard lengths (10’, 14’, 20’ and 24’), it can be expanded in four and six foot sections. All of the hardware for bolting the rack together is made from ⅝ inch hardware.
The Infinity Rig features Westside hole spacing, which provides you with one inch spacings through the bench press zone and two inch spacings through the squat and deadlift areas. The pullup bars provided give plenty of clearance to perform chin ups, pull ups and muscle ups. These rigs are designed to be bolted to the floor for maximum strength and rigidity.
The number of users that the rig accommodates is dependant on the size rig your purchase. The squat / bench press capacity ranges from two on the I-10 to six on the I-24. the number of pull up bars in the perimeter of the unit goes from six on the I-10 to 14 on the I-24. The Infinity rig features extremely user friendly j-cups that are covered in a thick plastic to protect your bar from scratches. There are also a huge number of accessories that can be added to the Infinity rig. Overall this is an ideal set-up for a multi use garage gym.
- Very rigid
- Westside hole spacing
- User friendly j-cups

The Monster 2.0 also gives you more bar placement options with two-inch on center hole spacing on all four sides of the uprights.

The Rogue Monster Lite Monkey Rig provides you with everything you’d expect in a good power rack. Then it adds a standard element of boot camp training, the rung ladder.

You also get six 43-inch single pull up bars, along with four 70-inch single pull up bars with pass-through construction for greater flexibility on moves like muscle-ups.

The Rogue Infinity Rig is the ultimate training solution for a garage set up that caters to a large number of trainers. It provides all the rigidity you’ll need, while also providing full customization and room for expansion. With this unit, you’ll be able to have up to 14 guys training at the same time.
If you’re after a more beefed up version that also provides you with a boot camp style rung ladder workout, then you’ll absolutely love the Rogue Monster Lite Monkey. This is a heavy duty multi use unit that comes in with a heavy duty price tag.
