Use Chain. Get Stonger.

Rogue Chain is made in the USA. Each chain is zinc electroplated to prevent rust. Rogue Chain Kits include chain with a carabiner in the center for easy loading along with a 4' length of chain with carabiner to mount around a barbell.

Chains can be used to build strength and to increase speed and acceleration. Throw a set or two over your shoulders and do weighted pull-ups or dips. Attach them to a Rogue Butcher for a new dynamic on sled work. Think outside the box and throw them in a WOD.

Note: each 5/8" chain section is 29 links (approximately 4' and 15LB)

Basic Chain Buying Guidelines:

  • Use a weight in chains that is around 10-20% of your 1 rep max for the exercise you are doing.
  • 1/2" Kit is ideal for a beginner lifter whose lifts are below 200LB
  • 5/8" Kit is ideal for someone whose maxes are 200-300LB
  • Two 5/8" Kits are ideal for someone whose maxes are 300-500LB

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to set up chains for a barbell back squat Different lifts require different setups of these chains. For any lift, the idea is that you want all the chain off the floor at the top of the lift and all of the heavier bottom chain on the floor at the bottom of the lift. For a barbell back squat do this: use the minimum number of links (maybe 8 links) on the top lighter chain to wrap around the barbell and then clip to the small chain with the included smaller carabiner. In this configuration, the top chain will be more than 3 feet long. Then clip the larger bottom chain's larger carabiner to the middle of the larger bottom chain so that the bottom chain is now half as long as its total length. And also clip this same carabiner to the bottom of the smaller top chain. In this configuration, when you stand up with the barbell on your back, the total chain should be off the floor. When you are at the bottom of your squat, the larger bottom chain should be on the floor. Of course you may have to make adjustments in this explanation depending on your height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent chains Debated for awhile buying these but I'm glad I did. They are very versatile; I always use them on squats, dead lifts, and dips. I did a search looking for a better deal but the price difference on other sites (and hardware stores) was minimal. I purchased a set of the 10 lbs and a set of the 20 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Probably cost little more than going to home depot or so.. I have 2x 18lbs chains and used them when I do dips. I put them on my upper body and do many reps as possible. I treat them rough... throwing it off to the platform every set and still good to go. Planning to buy one more..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific chains! These chains are fabulous! First of all, they are ultra clean: no oil or grease, but will never rust due to the zinc coating. With very easy length adjustments possible, the length is never an issue. I use them with my barbell for bench presses, squats, deadlifts, clean-grip high pulls. I also put a chain around my shoulders for dips and sissy squats. I even use them with my seated arm curl machine, added them to where the plates are loaded. The feel of variable resistance provided by the chains is great! Both the 1/2" and 5/8" sizes are amazing and will last forever. Truly outstanding! Thank you Rogue Fitness!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Weight can vary between chains, they can be a bit short for people with longer arms. Great quality and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me I don't pretend to be a chain expert or anything, this is my first set, but I have not had the same issues as the other two reviewers. If I need to adjust the chain up or down a bit for squats, bench, etc., I just move the clip up a link or two on the short chain. I end up with the entire large chain deloaded, and the smaller chain doing its job. Not sure why that is so difficult to figure out. Maybe I'm technically doing something wrong, but all I see is the chain doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not enough small chain for this work properly the small chain that comes with the 5/8 chain is way too short; it is only 4 feet long. the smaller chain that holds up the bigger chains needs to be at least 6-8 feet in total length so that the bottom end up the loop is close enough to the ground; the bigger 5/8 chain is suppose to be suspended within the smaller chain at the midpoint in order for the entire weight of the chain to be properly de-loaded at the bottom of a squat. it is not correct to simply hang the 5/8 chain at a higher end of the link as this does not allow the upper portion of the chain to be de-loaded. major design flaw in terms of packaging this product. rogue, if you're listening, extend the smaller chain that comes with this package to a total length of at least 8 feet so that the user has the option of adjusting the height. the 5/8 chain is a great weight at 20 lbs so i will give this product 2 stars.
