Rogue Belt Squat

The freestanding version of the Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat requires no separate rack/rig for set-up, as the system includes a pair of 53.925” steel legs for mounting and two angled 3x3” front feet for platform stability. This compact unit can be set up in garage gyms, low-ceiling home gyms, or full-scale facilities, offering athletes the ability to get many of the lower body training benefits of squats and other workouts without putting unnecessary stress on the shoulders or lower back.

 

Performing belt squats rather than traditional back squats / front squats / Zercher squats can be beneficial for a wide range of reasons. Athletes dealing with regular back pain or struggling with spinal compression from axial loading can circumvent those issues by putting the lion’s share of the load on the hips and legs. Similarly, anyone rehabbing from an upper body injury (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, etc.) can still get in their lower body work without having to worry about supporting a barbell.
