Product Review: Rogue HG Collars
Once again Rogue Fitness has created a high quality product that we can share with our Breaking Muscle readers. Rogue HG Collars are a newer style of barbell collar that are ideal for Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, and high volume workouts. After using a variety of collars including the spring style, clamp style, and pin and lock style, these collars are our favorite. If you are looking for a high quality collar that can be used and abused this is the collar for you. These collars are perfect for saving the time and energy of having to put your plates back on again and again, during high intensity workouts. These collars are so durable that they were that were used during the 2010 CrossFit Games.
The Rogue HG collars were tested in a home gym setting and a CrossFit style gym for more than 6 months. Overtime there was no wear and tear noted on the clips, and they were still able to maintain their very snug fit after repeated daily use. Daily testing in the open gym setting allowed for plenty of use and abuse by a variety of users. We used these collars in a gym where workouts had athletes frequently dropping weights, and the clips held up well under the stress, and maintained a tight grip on the barbell. The clips were used in a variety of workouts including max effort lifts, power lifting style workouts, Olympic weightlifting, and high repetition workouts.
