Product Description

The MG-4C is the latest evolution of the Rogue specialty multi-grip barbell. Available here with a 3.5” cambered steel frame (a flat frame version is sold separately), this patent pending design now comes standard with three sets of adjustable straight handles. 

All handles measure 28.5mm in diameter and include our premium Proprietary Matte Black finish and the same precision knurl pattern as our Ohio Bars. They can be attached to the frame of the MG-4C Bar at 1-inch intervals, meaning that a set of handles can be functionally spaced anywhere from a minimum of 6” to a maximum of 26” apart. This enables athletes to customize their bar for multiple movements—from close grip presses and triceps work to biomechanically optimized grips at shoulder-width and beyond. Better still, our durable Proprietary Matte Black finish doesn’t add any thickness when applied, so the feel of the handles is left exactly as it was straight out of the lathe. 

The MG-4C’s friction welded sleeves also have a Proprietary Matte Black finish, and are built with the same internal components as our standard barbells, rotating smoothly on shafts made from the same stainless steel as our power bars. Each sleeve offers 15.5” of loadable length, and with a standard sleeve spacing of 51.5”, the MG-4C is conveniently rackable on any Rogue power rack, squat stand, rig, or bench. 

The 41” frame portion of the bar is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” plates, a machined socket, and a Texture Black powder coat finish. The cambered shape with 3.5” of drop allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower. 

The sleeves are assembled to the shafts by our barbell assembly team, but to save on shipping costs, we developed a unique interlocking taper design that allows for easy assembly with a single nut using the included wrench. The joint created by this interlocking taper is every bit as strong as a weld, and will hold up to whatever an athlete throws at it. Even after the nut is removed, it takes a lot of force with a mallet to free the shaft from the socket.

Key Features of the MG-4 Cambered Multi-Grip Bar

Adjustable Knurled Handles
1

Adjustable Knurled Handles

The MG-4C comes standard with (6) removable knurled grip handles (28.5mm outside diameter) in a Proprietary Matte Black finish. With their threaded design, these handles can be positioned anywhere along the bar’s 41” long frame, using the included allen keys for attachment. Functional spacing options range from a minimum or 6” to a max of 26”. Keep in mind, the ideal biomechanical angle for an efficient, safe lift expands as the handles move further apart. Rogue recommends the following handle spacing for Angled Handles when pressing:

20-degree: 26" or 22" spacing
16 degree: 18" or 14" spacing
Straight: 10" or 6" spacing

Additional configurations may work for other movements (ex. many athletes prefer closely spaced, angled handles for skull crushers).

Rackable Sleeves
2

Rackable Sleeves

Offering a standard loadable length of 15.5”, the sleeves on the MG-4C are built using the same construction methods and components as our Rogue Power Bar, resulting in a consistent, smooth rotation. The standard sleeve spacing (51.5”) makes the bar conveniently rackable on most standard rigs/racks, and the Proprietary Matte Black finish helps eliminate paint chipping and maximizes long-term corrosion resistance.
Please Note: The sleeve assemblies ship disconnected from the frame and can be attached using the included 1.5” Monster Wrench. They can also be removed and replaced, but removal will require additional tools (such as a rubber mallet) and a means of securing the frame in place.

Cambered Frame
3

Cambered Frame

The cambered 41” frame has a depth of 3.5” and is built from 1.5” x 1.5” 11-gauge steel tubing with 1/4” laser-cut plates and a machined socket. Mounting holes for the handles are 1” on center all along the sides, and the frame is finished in a Texture Black powder coat. The cambered shape allows for a greater range of motion when using the outer handles on certain movements (such as bench or rows), and also helps to improve stability and reduce wobbling, as the bar’s center of mass–relative to hand placement–is lower.

Interlocking Taper Design and Machined Nut
4

Interlocking Taper Design and Machined Nut

The shaft of the sleeve connects to the frame using an interlocking taper; a staple of the machine tool industry for more than a century. The conical shape of the shaft is inserted into a conical cylinder that, when tightened with the machined hex nut, creates an extremely rigid joint.

Awesome for the price
I previously owned the kadillac bar, and while I think the kadillac bar is the better bar, the mg4c is an amazing value at this price. While i have to exercise care when moving the mg4c in my garage gym (two car garage with a parked car), it’s the same amount of car i use when moving any of my other bars.

Nice bar
Its a very nice bar. Not sure why there are so many negative reviews about this bar. This bar wobbles but other multi-grip barbells wobbles too for first few days until you get used to of holding this type of bar. I also have the narrower version of this bar and I don’t feel any difference as such. This is a no brainer for the price, you can’t find anything of thus quality for $250.

Unstable, but definitely still usable.
Get the narrower version, you'll thank yourself. Unstable, but I still use it a few times per split.

Sorry guys but I really like it.
I don’t understand the hate on this bar. This bar is fantastic!! And if it’s still a hot deal, you better jump on it. I’m using it for incline press and bo rows. If you’re on the fence, just do it!! 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

Great bar
I was wary of the wobble with this bar after reading other reviews. Yes, it was a bit unstable the first time or two I used it. Funny how adaptation works, the more I used it the more stable it got. I don't think the bar adapted to me. That said, I bought the bar to use as an accessory lift to regular bench pressing, I don't load it heavy, use it for lighter high rep sets.. In that capacity I love it. Also, the bar arrives in bomb proof packaging and it's easy to put together. Changing handle position with the straight handles is about a 90-120 second operation with the allen wrenches included with the bar, that is it isn't an issue.

32mm Straight Handles Should Be Standard
Purchased the all stainless steel version of this bar with extra 32mm stainless 16 and 20 degree handle pairs. The bar still arrived with 28mm straight handles, not matching the diameter of the 32mm angled handles. There needs to be a better option for 32mm Straight Handles than charging $70 extra and having an unused set of 28mm straight handles. This is wasteful and an unnecessary added expense to the customer on an already expensive bar. I'm not sure who thought 28mm handles were a good default diameter for a pressing bar. They seem to have changed this on the MG-4CN, but should have fixed the issue here too.

Best multi grip bar available
This is the best cambered bar you can buy. Although it can be a little pricey should you purchase multiple extra handles, the versatility is unmatched. I owned the kabuki bar which is a great bar but the thick grips killed my wrists. Having the same grips that are on my straight bar works best for me. Some people complain about the width of the bar but I find it to be a nonissue. Another great made in the USA offering by Rogue.

extremely unbalanced
I bought this a few months ago and tried to give it a chance but it is just poorly designed. Its extremely unbalanced to the point of danger in certain workouts.
