Developed in partnership with Mark Bell of Super Training Gym, Rogue Weight Releasers offer a new take on a powerlifting classic. These heavy-duty, fully-adjustable steel hook attachments are designed to preload/overload the eccentric portion of a lift, creating greater explosiveness on the concentric end. The base portion of each unit can be loaded with standard Olympic plates, then set at one of 15 height positions using the telescoping, lock-in pin system (28.75” to 49.75”). This means you can quickly adjust the Weight Releasers for both squatting and benching use, and for athletes of any size.
As the user reaches the bottom of their range of movement, and the weight touches the ground, the hooks will safely “release” off of the barbell, cutting the resistance and enabling the user to complete the lift. The hooks include 1/2" thick UHMW plastic on each side to protect the sleeve of your bar from damage during attachment and release.
Rogue Weight Releasers are made in the USA from 3/16” laser-cut and welded steel, with our signature textured black finish and laser-cut Rogue branding on each side. Sold as a set, the two units weigh approx. 35 LBS unloaded.

Weight Releasers have been used by competitive powerlifters for decades, but by working with Mark Bell, we were able to develop a superior design that’s more versatile, durable, and safer to employ. The telescopic adjustment system offers 15 positions ranging from 28.75” to 49.75”, giving lifters the ability to set the hooks at their own preferred height for benching, squatting, etc. The Weight Releasers overload the negative/eccentric portion of the lift (creating greater intramuscular tension), then safely fall off the bar when lifting back up. The result is often greater explosiveness through the concentric movement.
Made in Columbus, OH, USA, the Rogue Weight Releasers feature a 3/16” laser-cut and welded steel construction, with our signature textured black finish and laser-cut Rogue branding on each side. The full set weighs in at approx. 35 LBS unloaded, with a tolerance of +/- 1 LB. We include 1/2" thick UHMW plastic on each side of the hooks to protect the sleeve of your bar from damage during attachment and release.
