Rogue RX Jump Ropes are the choice of the best of the best!

Along with foot wear, jump ropes are a piece of personal gear that can really make a difference in your performance. The amazing thing is you can get a jump rope that will vastly out perform your current rope for just a few dollars more than you paid for the speed rope from your sporting goods store, and it will not wear out like a pair of shoes.Rogue RX Jump Ropes offers a product that is custom built to your measurements and preference of cable weight. They use a multidirectional swivel bearing system that makes them one of the fastest ropes on the planet, and have an ergonomic handle that allows for for an effortless grip. In addition, the RX product is one of the most durable ropes available. Many gyms are able to use them indefinitely
while their other ropes have to be either repaired or replaced every few months.

Again and again, people who know gear, choose RX. After rigorous testing, an elite special operations unit recently chose Rogue RX Jump Ropes to outfit their unit.

In competition, you need to know that your gear will not only perform exceptionally, you need to know it will not fail. The number 1 and number 2 male CrossFit athletes in the world showed confidence in RX Jump Ropes by choosing them for the big day.

The Rogue Axle

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!

100 Pound Straitjacket Box Vest

Many in the military or law enforcement go into battle with 60 pounds or more of gear between armor, ammunition, weapons and communications equipment. Anyone who has done this knows the value of training in weight vest so you are not stuck in a situation where you do not have the strength or stamina to climb the wall, chase down the suspect or sprint to safety in your gear.

Even people who will never have to don body armor, will make huge gains from using weight vests for body weight exercises whether using them for single rep maxes or doing entire workouts weighted.

You haven’t trained with a weight vest until you’ve finished a workout with one that weighs 100 pounds. You always want to train harder than you will be tested in competition or battle. You want game day to feel light.

The Straitjacket Box Vest not only allows you to train with up to 100 pounds when needed, it allows you to work up to that weight in easy to manage increments.

Even with the high capacity, the vest is short, which allows for a full range of motion allowing you to add weight to just about any movement including glute ham sit-ups, muscle ups, pull ups, dips, push ups, running, and box jumps.

It comes equipped with two layers of weights, a wider shoulder base with double the padding, and fail proof, military grade fasteners, and 1000 D-Cordura nylon that will assure you that the last thing you’ll worry about during your training evolution is the vest, itself.

Here is the minimalist shoe you have been waiting for!

It is as close to barefoot as you can get while still protecting your feet from glass, rocks and other hazards.

2nd Skin upper with a sock-like fit.

strengthens your feet and legs.

OrthoLite Sockliner provides long-lasting cushion with an
antimicrobial protection and moisture management.

Adipure Tooling: The specially engineered midsole/outsole
construction enables superb responsive feeling of ground contact. This
natural way of training feels like working out barefoot, resulting in
increase of muscle activation and higher training efficiency.

Flexible NON MARKING rubber outsole for traction and durability
including flex grooves in the toes for increased flexibility.

Available in men’s and women’s sizes.

Any closer to a natural feel and you would be barefoot!

Competition Ring Straps

One of the biggest complaints that people have about dealing with gymnastics rings is the ability to set them up and adjust them to different heights quickly. You often spend a lot of time making small adjustments to ensure the rings are level. After supplying rings for the 2011 CrossFit Games Regional Competition all over the world, and adjusting them for each heat, Rogue realized that they could make things much more efficient for the 2011 CrossFit Games Final.
The Rogue Fitness Competition Straps come in 8 foot and 6 foot versions and allows for set up of your gymnastics rings in seconds without worrying about keeping them level. Setting them up is as easy as throwing the straps over the bar and clipping the carabiner into one of of the divisions that is sewn into the straps every 3 inches.

Having the straps held static also eliminates the possibility that the buckle will slide down to interfere with an athlete during a workout. Both the athletes and the judges at the CrossFit games loved the new system.

Whether you are in a situation where you have to set up your rings every day, often change the height of your rings to accommodate different exercises, such as dips, muscle ups and pushups, or have a busy gym where every athlete is a different height, you will love the ability to make precise adjustments quickly anytime you need them.
