Rogue HR-2 Half Rack

The customizable Rogue HR-2 Half Rack can be installed as a stand-alone unit or by converting an existing Monster Lite Series squat stand .

Manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, the HR-2 features the same 2x3" 11-gauge steel base and 48" x 49" footprint as the SML-2, but incorporates an additional pair of 3x3” 11-gauge steel uprights and 17” crossmembers in the back of the unit. This gives the rack a huge amount of additional storage capacity and almost a foot and a half of inside depth for benching, rack pulls, and more. The Half Rack also offers a range of customizable options to best suit your needs—including the optional plate storage and pin/pipe safety sets, and a selection of different heights for the uprights themselves (90” or 108” for the front; 70” or 90” for the back).

IMPORTANT: If you already own a Rogue Monster Lite Squat Stand (SML-1, SML-2, or SML-3) and wish to convert it to an HR-2, we offer a Half Rack Conversion Kit that would include all the components and hardware you’ll need.

Rogue HR-2 Half Rack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you need All I needed. Super sturdy especially if you add weights to the bottom of the main posts (it tilted when doing kipping pullups or t2b)... very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my rack I pieced the setup over the course of 5 weeks, and rogue delivered. The Monster Lite has been the best rig, my squats, deads, and benches have jumped. So proud to have this in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted The sturdy frame is well worth the extra you pay compared to other items from different companies. This item feels like it will last a lifetime. I have no concerns doing pullups or going heavy with squat weights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing! I’ve had my half rack for a little over 5 months now and couldn’t be happier! I originally was looking to get a full size rack, but for the price point, the foot print and the attachment options, I couldn’t pass the HR-2 up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No excuse not to have a rack My Rack Setup: I've been a powerlifter and strength athlete for 30+ years and never thought I'd need a home gym because I was sure I could always find a "Real" gym within driving distance. Then the Coronavirus hit and I ate my words. So right before everything closed down I bought a Rogue HR-2 Half Rack. I have a small house and use my garage for cars, storage, and as a workspace, so I couldn't afford to turn it into a gym. But I needed a rack to squat, bench, rack pull, and do both heavy band work and reverse (hanging) band work. And the Rogue Half-Rack was it. If you are under 6 feet tall (like me) the 70/90 combo would work fine for you. If you are over 6 feet you may custom order a 90/90 combo, or if you have the ceiling height you could do the 90/108 combo. But the right height is key so you can squat inside of it and have the pin/pipe safeties there to spot you. You can pull a bench in and bench by yourself between the uprights to have the safeties there as well. I threw some mats down and I also deadlift from the floor inside the rack, do rack pulls, floor presses, and almost everything there as well. I only have to step out of the rack for military presses and overhead work. I also bought a second set of pin/pipe safeties to attach bands to, although you could use band anchors (from Rogue), but I prefer the second set of pins (although I do wrap a small elastic/bungie around the end to keep them from moving). I workout with my girlfriend and we have been able to have 2 bars resting on the rack at once, as long as my bar is racked on the inside of the back upright (get to use the pin/pipe safeties) and her bar is racked on the outside of the front upright. In this case you should buy a second set of J-hooks, and Safety Spotter Arms so your girl (or whoever is on the front of the rack) also has safeties under them. My future plan is to order a (custom order) second conversion kit to add a 108" upright to the front, so it will be 2 half racks together. That way I can work inside the first rack, and my girlfriend can work inside the second rack at the same time. As long as each bar is racked on the inside of their respective outside post, and one person is only working inside their rack at a time, it will work. Weight Storage: Unless you have a Weight Tree I highly suggest the Plate Storage Channel 8 pack that allows you to easily remove and reposition the pins. The more weights you have the more pins you will need, and the more pins you put on the rack, the less useful space you will have on the rack. If you look at the pictures I uploaded I changed my storage spots from the first pic to the second pic. While the first pic anchored the rack more, the second pic allows me to only have to pull 2 pins if I want to put the bar low for deadlifts, low rack pulls, or floor presses inside the rack, instead of having to pull 4 pins. That's why the repositional pins are key. You may need to move them to utilize the entire rack at times. Quality Review: -This thing is small enough to fit anywhere (and is pretty inexpensive), so there is no reason why you can't have rack if you really need/want one. The build quality is Rogue build quality which means it's ingenious and amazing. I see no reason why this thing would ever fail no matter how much damage I do to it. -It's a minimalist rack meaning there aren't a lot of supports to get in your way, but that also means there isn't a lot of support "locking" it together. It will have some sway and movement with racking heavy weights and pullups. However the thing is solid and it doesn't effect it. I've done Regular and Reverse Band work on the rack and it never budged enough for me to blink an eye. -I wish the pin/pipe safeties had some locking mechanism on them. As I stated earlier they do move if I attach bands on them (I know this isn't why they were made, but they are useful as band anchors) and I have to use bungies/elastics to keep them in place. If they had some kind of locking pin like the removable storage channel pins they would be perfect (take note Rogue, this is an easy upgrade to your pin/pipes). -I do dislike that the finish Rogue uses on many attachments (like the Pin/Pipes) can be easily scratched/ I know that Rogue price point is a major factor in this, but I would love some raw metal or upgraded coating options that wouldn't wear so easy. Just a thought. -I wish Rogue Offered Roller J-hooks. The only ones on the market are stupid expensive and I think Rogue can make some at typical bullet-proof Rogue quality at an affordable price point (Please contact me when you do so Rogue, as I'll buy a pair...or two). Final Thoughts (in 3 words): ***Buy the Rack***

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment I purchased this half rack around mid-March (2020). I've been looking at this exact model for close to a year and was really hesitant on making the leap. But after a lot of research and a lot of apprehension, I decided to go for it (COVID 19 made it a lot easier, once the gyms shut down), and I couldn't be happier. While not ideal, it is relatively easy to assemble alone (I'm a relatively small woman, 5'5", so I did need a ladder to fasten the bolts up top). It's really solid and I don't get any swaying or shifting when lifting or doing pull ups. I don't kip when doing pull ups, but I've tried and theres little to no movement of the rack itself. Keep in mind when you are setting up the half rack, not to tighten or fasten any of the bolts until its fully assembled. This allows the rack to settle onto and adjust to any uneven surfaces, making it more stable in places like garages (which have a minimal slope for draining). So if you do kip, I would just be sure to do that. Although Rogue does have pretty quick and responsive shipping, a lot of my parts and pieces came piecemeal due to the back-stock during the pandemic, which is understandable. The half rack has a relatively small footprint, which is perfect for those looking to set up a minimal home gym. I was looking at the RML-390F, but it just seemed like overkill for our small, townhouse garage gym. Like the RML-390F, I love the fact that this doesn't need to be bolted to the ground, which makes moving it around easier and also is more renter friendly. I'm not sure if Rogue recommends this, but I imagine you could also strip it down to look and function more like the SML squat racks. This could be a valuable option if you move frequently like us and need to be able to downsize for a smaller space. I love the open design of a half rack more over a full blown rack/rig. You can tell this is made to last and will retain its value. One thing that I don't really care for, is the small amount of space between the uprights. I am mindful of the pathway of the bar when I'm lifting, but I just don't personally like it. It makes me feel a little claustrophobic. I purchased the safety spotter arms in lieu of the safety pins, which I recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rack - perfect stand alone rack I purchased the rack a few weeks ago. I didn’t want to secure a rack to the floor or the wall and this rack worked perfect. I can do pull ups and toes to bar as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for home This half rack is exactly what I wanted and needed for my basement. Great size, built very strong. Would very much recommend this for a house gym.
