The Rogue Axle was recently used for a workout at the UFC Expo where several top CrossFitters learned of the difficulty and grip training benefits of lifting with such a thick bar.
The Axle is a collaborative effort between Rogue Fitness and Rob Orlando of Hybrid Athletics. Each Axle ships with custom set of spring clamps to keep the weight in place. It weighs 25 pounds and is 7 feet in length with a 1.9” outside diameter and a Rogue Signature Black Zinc finish.
Your brain will not let you pick up something if it does not feel that you have the grip strength to hold onto it. Grip was a limiting factor for several top CrossFitters in the 2011 CrossFit Games, both at the Regionals and at the Home Depot Center. Train with the Rogue Axle and ensure that grip is never a limiting factor for you!
