Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat - Stand Alone
New Patent-Pending System for Lower Body Training - For Use with Rogue Monster & Fortis Power Racks

The freestanding version of the Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat (patent pending) 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.

Manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, the stand-alone Monster Rhino Belt Squat comes with 3x3” arms and crossmembers, a 3x6” weight trolley tower, and a 0.25" braided cable for raising/lowering the weight trolley. When not in use, the trolley is stored on a 1" thick UHMW plastic hook, or “Rhino Horn.” A diamond-tread plate platform provides steady footing, adjustable handles offer overhand and neutral grip options, and our exclusive Rogue Multi Belt (included standard) easily accommodates most waist sizes, with adjustments from 41” to 61”. The entire Rhino unit (aside from the platform, handles and weight posts) is finished in our Medium Gloss Black powdercoat.

Set-Up: The Monster Rhino Belt Squat ships freight, some assembly required, and it must be bolted to the floor before use. A pair of Monster 1” Wrenches are included, however additional tools will be required to finish assembly. When complete, the trolley tower will reach a height of 78.5" from the floor. The freestanding / stand-alone version has a total footprint of 53" x 60.5", and extends approx. 21.5" off the legs. Please Note: Additional clearance (beyond 21.5") is required for adding plates.

Using the Rhino Belt Squat: Step onto the platform and strap on the Rogue Multi Belt around your hips. Upon standing up, the trolley will rise and disengage from the Rhino Horn. This allows users to then pull back on the handles and start squatting. Once the handles are pulled back, they will stay back until the user pushes the handles back towards the tower, allowing the horn to safely re-engage the trolley.

Benefits of Belt Squats: 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.

Belt Squats provide traction to the spine, help add substantial volume to the legs, and offer versatility for other types of training, from calf raises to rows, shrugs, and deadlifts—all easily performed even in a home gym with limited space. A pair of welded-on Band Pegs are included with the system for additional resistance work.

What’s Included with the Freestanding Monster Rhino Belt Squat:

  • 1Loadable Weight Trolley

    Our innovative weight trolley design (patent pending) features two stainless steel, horizontal weight posts with 15.75" of loading capacity on each side. A set of (4) machined Acetal rollers, each containing (2) bearings, ensure the trolley moves smoothly up and down the rail. Laser-cut Rogue branding is featured on each side, and the tower includes a Rhino sticker on each side, as well.

  • 2Squat Platform

    The platform of the Monster Rhino Belt Squat is made from 0.125" thick diamond tread plate and is finished in our Signature Texture Black powdercoat to provide advanced durability and a non-slip surface. The tread plate sits on top of a 1" x 3" steel frame and attaches to 3x3" front feet for additional stability and rigidity. The platform dimensions are 26" deep x 48.5" wide. When the unit is installed, the top of the platform sits 7" above the ground.

  • 3Rhino Horn

    This is a 1" thick UHMW plastic horn, sandwiched between steel plates, that holds the trolley when not in use. The Rhino Horn is adjustable up and down so that the "racked" or resting height of the trolley can be accommodated to specific users heights.

  • 4Adjustable Handles

    The handles on the Rhino are 1.25" in diameter and can be adjusted up or down for the user’s comfort. They are very similar to the handles found on our Rogue Monster Lever Arms and allow for both overhand and neutral grip positions. The inside of the channel on the handles features a protective UHMW plastic cover.

  • 5Exclusive Squat Belt

    Each Rhino unit includes a custom designed Rogue Multi Belt, made in the USA. This exclusive squat belt offers six adjustable size settings (from 41” to 61”), built-in padding for reduced hip friction, and a spacer mesh interior for breathability. It was developed from an original design brought to us by Brian Henesey of OverAchieve Sports and Speed.

  • 6Mounting Legs

    Since this version of the Rhino stands on its own, we’ve included a set of 53.925" tall legs that serve the same purpose as the uprights on a rack would. Two angled front feet (3x3”) that help ensure the stability for the platform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Piece of Equipment I purchased the Belt Squat a few weeks ago. I can't tell you how pleased I am. Due to some medical limitations I haven't been able to back/front squat for some time. This biomechanics of this piece are excellent and provide for pain free squating. In addition, it fits very well in my home gym. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built Pros: well built, sturdy, smooth action, and weight feels one to one. Cons: missing two pieces nuts and bolts, needed personal tools like Allen wrenches and sockets to put together. Understand sockets but Allen wrenches are relatively cheap. But overnighted parts to me and customer service extremely polite and professional. And I have ton tools so wasn’t much of setback

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Build Quality...But A Few Suggestions The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is because of the pain in the butt it was to put this thing together. Observation 1: The monster bolts are painted black. That does two things. (1) It chips and the bolts don't look as "clean" and crisp as you would expect from Rogue. But more importantly (2) it makes the nuts very difficult to wrench on. They seem to stick maybe because of the paint. Unless you have a pneumatic driver or a large socket wrench, I'd be willing to say it'd be almost impossible to put together. I'm not sure you can get enough torque on the wrenches provided. Therefore, I think just using the standard chrome Monster bolts would be much better...less sticking and would look cleaner. Observation 2: The other difficult thing is that the bolts to mount the floor plates can be tough to get through the holes and wrench from the bottom. Observation 3: Just know that you will need multiple wrenches/sockets, allen wrenches, and probably at least a rubber mallet to get all of the pieces lined up. It can be a very tight fit. Observation 4: The figures in the instructions are a bit small. I would suggest enlarging them. For example, I didn't notice that the very first step of putting the brackets on requires them to be in a certain orientation. Similarly when putting on the arms. My fault...but I just think if the detail was enlarged, it would be easier to notice. Overall: But its built like a tank and seems to move quite well. Very happy with it in general. Oh, and it will fit both in a 24 inch or 30 inch deep space (so long as its 43 inches wide) So yes I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Chungus Assembly is not difficult, especially with two people. Took two experienced individuals roughly 2 hours to assemble, level, and test. 15 minutes to unbox. Packaging is next level, very organized to a single pallet with extremely thoughtful organization/protection. No scratches or blemishes. Finish of machine is excellent. Most uprights have shiny black finish, platform is matte/handles are matte finish. Platform paint is durable (would look horrible if shiny with everyone stepping all over it). Hardware is black, nice touch. Would be nice if the bolts that bolted platform to unit were also black - regular zinc and stick out like a sore thumb. All stickers were installed crooked, which is a really minor gripe but it seems silly to not put them on reasonably straight on such a beast of a unit. Machine functions flawlessly. Platform allows for varying stances and comfortable use for most height/size individuals. Weight feels very similar to barbell loading (ie 1:1 with barbell load if trolley is included). Loaded two 45s per side on rhino and immediately back squatted 225 on regular bar - similar effort albeit different feel to each exercise. Belt seems ok. We've had various individuals of different sizes use and it seems to have a solution for all. A little laborious to clip in and out of due to very small loop size and huge beefcake carabiner. Comfort for belt is subjective, I personally feel like it is very comfortable (5'11 245lb), though some smaller individuals feel like it is huge and cumbersome, pinches in spots. Would rather have metal rings vs. nylon loops as they are so small and difficult to clip to. 4.5 stars (marked 5), mostly due to minor gripes with belt, little fit and finish issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built...Love it! Former powerlifter with back and hip injuries. Haven't been able to squat in a few years...This machine has changed that! I wish I would have gotten it sooner! Only negative is the assembly. Wish they had a video for that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I bought this about a month ago and have not been disappointed. Lets start about the delivery and setup. The unit took about 2-3 weeks to arrive after ordering compared to the 4-6 that is quoted. Have to love that about rouge always beats there timeline. The set up is not bad and with two people took about an hour. I says to bolt to the floor however we did not. if you have someone who and turn this over, that is someone i wouldn't want to meet in dark ally because it is stout and solid like all rouge products. Now to the actual machine. If you like working legs this is a machine you have to have. This machine allows you it hit legs multiple times a week without destroying your back. It is a great complement to squat and dead lifts. It you do a traditional squat, it provides the best activation for quad work of anything i have found. If you do a sumo squat, the work in the hamstring is amazing. Plus the traction is amazing on your back. I have friends that hate squats and love this machine. IF you have a gym and have people who want tree trunks for legs you must have this machine
