Monster Utility Bench 2.0
Available in Multiple Custom Configurations

Manufactured in the USA using 3x3” 11-gauge steel, the newly redesigned Rogue Monster Utility Bench combines the stability of an extra wide 26.5” rear base with a new single-column front foot, giving athletes more room for setting their feet during a bench press. Each unit ships disassembled from our warehouse to reduce shipping costs, and comes with all necessary hardware for a quick set-up, as well as rubber feet to protect your flooring.

Version 2.0 also rolls out new improvements in portability and storage, as a set of rear wheels and a built-in handle in the front foot enable athletes to quickly and easily pick up the bench and roll it in/out of a rack or out of the way entirely. When not in use, the Monster Utility Bench 2.0 can also now be stored upright for better space efficiency, with a UHMW cap at the end of the bench spine ensuring no damage to the bench pad—no matter which type of pad you’re using.

As with the original model, gym owners can customize the Monster Utility Bench 2.0 during the ordering process by selecting a preferred bench height (Standard vs. Shorty) and style of bench pad (Standard vs. Premium vs. Competition Fat Pad™ vs. Thompson Fat Pad™). The Shorty Bench option allows athletes to use a Fat Pad™ while still keeping the unit at a more traditional flat bench height. We’re also offering an alternative to the standard MG Black front handle, as customers can add a Knurled Stainless Steel handle to their order a la carte in a short or standard-length option. The knurling on the stainless handle is the same pattern found on our Rogue Ohio Bar.

Quality Rogue Construction

Quality Rogue Construction

With its 3x3” 11-gauge steel frame, 47.375" x 26.25" footprint, and 3/16” laser-cut Rogue-branded gussets, the Monster Utility Bench 2.0 is unmatched for dependable stability. A set of rubber feet further assist in both preventing movement and protecting your floor, and the unit is finished in a quality MG Black powdercoat with Black Zinc hardware.

New Front Foot Design
2

New Front Foot Design

Rather than having the wide horizontal steel tube base on both ends of the bench, Version 2.0 introduces a new standalone, column-style front foot that gives up nothing in stability while offering more ample room for athletes to set their feet during a bench press. Includes a bolt-on rubber foot to match those of the wide rear base.

2 Height Options

2 Height Options

Customers can use the dropdown menu to choose between a standard height Monster Utility Bench (17.5” with a standard pad / 19.75” with a Fat Pad) or our “Shorty” model (15.25” with standard pad / 17.5” with Fat Pad).

Further customization is possible by selecting your preferred style of bench pad:

Standard (47"L x 12"W x 2.5" Thick // 11 LBS) - Closed cell foam, Black vinyl.

Premium (47"L x 12"W x 2.5" Thick // 20 LBS) - Self-skinning, highly engineered polyurethane foam. Black w/ debossed Rogue branding. Includes a black substrate on the underside for a clean finished look that won’t deteriorate over time. 

Competition Fat Pad (50"L x 12.5"W x 4.5" Thick // 24.5 LBS) - Black “grabber” vinyl. Wider than standard but narrower than Thompson Pad.

Thompson Fat Pad (50"L x 14.5"W x 4.5" Thick // 30 LBS) - Black “grabber” vinyl. Oversized design promotes scapular movement, eliminates shoulder hangover, and optimizes back and upper body positioning.

 Improved Portability
5

Improved Portability

Version 2.0 of the Monster Utility Bench now includes a set of wheels in the rear base and a handle incorporated into the new front foot. This enables athletes to quickly and easily pick up the bench from the front and roll it wheelbarrow-style into or out of a rack, or out of the way entirely. Customers can opt for the standard MG Black handle or a Knurled Stainless Steel Handle, available a la carte in a short or standard-length.

Upright Storage
6

Upright Storage

Near where the user’s head goes, we've added a UHMW cap to the end of the bench spine. This allows the Monster Utility Bench to be stored upright with no risk of damaging the pad. This new model is strategically designed so that no matter which pad the user selects at checkout, the UHMW cap will always extend just slightly beyond the pad to make safe contact with the floor when being stored vertically.

Ultimate bench
I love this bench. The fat pad is decadent, the shorty hardware is super solid. Incredible customer service helped immediately to fix a shipping issue. Only cons are the normal tradeoffs of a tripod bench; I wonder if there could be an attachment to stabilize the one leg side to side when you aren't benching. Otherwise I think this is the ultimate bench and a great value.

Great bench
I love this bench. It's so much better than the 9" wide adjustable bench I was using before. I particularly like how it stands up stably when not in use, saving a ton of space.

Best Flat Bench on the market
I recently purchased this flat bench, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve had issues with having damaged Rogue products in the past, however, this item showed up in amazing condition. Rogue was cool enough to arm the wheels, making the overall assembly incredibly fast and easy. Thank you Rogue!! Lives up to its’ name. For reference, I went with the Rogue Monster Utility 2.0 shorty with competition fat pad and stainless steel knurled handle.

Buyers beware, pass on this bench!
I bought this bench a couple of weeks ago, the whole inside of the stabilizer beam was rusted and had terrible spotting. On top of which was missing a whole bracket. Rogue did in fact send the missing bracket but told me that the rust and oxidation is “normal” for this product and if they sent a replacement it would ALSO be oxidized and rusted with poor finish? Like what!?! Stay away, rogue fell off hard with selling products like this and thinking it’s okay!

We are happy to review all instances like this on a case by case basis. What you are seeing inside your frame will not impact the performance or longevity of your bench. We do apologize this was shipped with incorrect brackets and are glad to hear that is taken care of.

Love the fat pad. Dislike the instability.
I've been using this bench for almost one year now. Big fan of the Fat pad. This thing is heavy and solid. It feels great for bench press. However, if you plan to utilize it for anything other than or in addition to bench, maybe look elsewhere. The new design of the front foot is terrible. We also recently purchased a FID bench for the home gym and it is significantly more stable. I sent a video to Rogue demonstrating the instability and received a "that's fine, working as intended" response. Imagine yourself sitting upright at the end of the bench (by the "front foot"), you bend down to grab your dumbbells... uh oh, the whole bench careens to the side because the front foot offers virtually no lateral support. It's very annoying and something we encounter constantly. Want to do bench dips? Make sure you're only at the end with the lateral support feet. It's so obnoxious and aggravating that I'm working with a friend to design a bolt-on footplate that will provide the lateral stability without affecting the bench height. I bet there might even be a little after market demand for such a piece. I wish Rogue would just offer one.
Modest weight/pressure slightly off center near "front foot" causes significant instability (notice back lateral support is off the ground).

Great bench top notch customer service
The Thompson pad is the best part of this bench, with that said the frame has a great design and is fairly stable. The tripod design does feel unstable at times but that is to be expected. I received the bench with some imperfections including a missing laser cut. Customer service was great and the issue was resolved.
