Rogue MG-2 Multi-Grip Bars

Rogue’s fully welded MG-2 Multi-Grip Bars go beyond the typical Swiss bar or football barbell, offering a uniquely angled, two-way neutral grip design and compatibility with most standard power racks and Olympic plates. Whether you’re looking to reduce stress on the wrists and shoulders during press movements or to target your triceps for better lockouts, these bars enable an athlete to experiment with different approaches and develop more dynamic lifting programs.

There are currently two different models of the MG-2. The hexagonal, 52.75" MG-23 is an adaptation of our original MG-1 Heavy Duty Multi Grip Bar 2.0, and includes six angled handles (1.25” in diameter) spaced at 6.5”, 14.5”, and 22.5”. This gives the athlete three distinct grips to choose from—with a close grip emphasizing the triceps and a wide grip targeting the pectoral muscles. The Multi-Grip Bar can also be turned 180 degrees (with the Rogue logo upside down) to reverse the angle of the handles for curls or an “elbows-in” bench press.

The rectangular MG-24 Bar is roughly the same total length as the MG-23, but includes two additional handles (all at the same angle), with spacing options at 6”, 14”, 22”, and 30”. Like the MG-23, it can be rotated for elbows-in, triceps-focused training.

Both MG-2 Multi-Grip Bars are finished in our Rogue signature black powder coat. Please note that any metal-to-metal contact with the coated sleeves (such as adding and/or removing plates) may cause wear on the finish over time.

Important: For Collars that fit specialty bars like the MG-2, please see the Rogue HG Axle Collars.

Rogue MG-2 Multi Grip Bars is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet-Proof but would like Knurling I purchased the MG -24 two years ago because of a shoulder injury. I figured the multi grip positions would be easier on my 61 year old shoulder joints. The bar worked great during my recovery so much that I use it almost exclusively for close grip presses. They also work great for hammer curls. My only wish would be for knurling on the the grips. It’s just one of my preferences and might not be a big deal for someone else but I wound up using friction tape and wrapping it like a hockey stick.. Thanks Rogue for saving an old mans shoulders

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great American Made Product! I researched for 6-7months about this bar and others similar. I had some shoulder surgeries and was interested in relieving unnecessar stress on shoulders. It took me a 2 more months to justify spending this much extra cash, but this Multi Grip bar was worth it. I wanted a superior qaulity American MADE product and this bar was it. The capabilities of this bar are far superior to an ordinary barbell or cheap multi grip at the gym. This is a durable and stout bar. I am Very glad I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my lifts and my shoulder I originally bought the MG-24 bar to allow me to safely continue training my presses, thanks to a torn right rotator cuff and labrum. I'm post-surgery now, and this is still my go-to bar. The neutral grip position not only feels far more natural to me (and allows me to keep my shoulders in a safe position throughout the lift), it also places great emphasis on the chest and triceps. As a old man in the military (30) I would highly recommend this bar to anyone who asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for my home gym Received the MG-2 in March and with all my Rogue purchases, this is top quality. Gives my shoulders a break from straight bar and believe it, gives my left elbow which is always in pain, a pain free break. Personally I don't miss or need the knurling. With the angled grips my hands don't miss the knurling which I could not do without on a straight bar. To be sure, I do use chalk and grip is solid even in my high humidity Florida garage gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All purpose product I've found a number of uses for my new Multi Grip Bar! It's not just for pressing, although this bar has enabled me to perform the Chest Press again despite my shoulder issues. Highly recommend this bar for anyone with shoulder issues wanting to continue to bench press! Additionally, this bar is great for front squats, bent rows and hammer curls. The quality is superb. All of my clients love using the Multi Grip Bar during their workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Saving those Shoulders I've had the MG-24 for a few months now. Before purchasing I was unsure between the MG-24 and the MG-3 model but decided to go with the 24 due to the angles. This is now my main bench press bar - I find the 22" handles are idea for my size (6"0 175) and it feels so much less strain on the shoulders. I did try it for other exercises. For OHP I find it's to wide and feel like I'm going to hit my face with it even though I never have and for rows it does offer a nice variation with the neutral grip. But I got this for bench press and an very happy with what Rogue has delivered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from difference maker we have this in our gym and i was having some soreness in my shoulders i was in a rut i could not lift more weight.. I was told to try this so here is somethings that i experience..First i could not life the same amount weight as before on this bar i was using 2 45lb plate to start out with i notice it was more heavy then a normal barbell on a normal barbell my max bench wight is 225lb for 5 reps.. On this bar the rogue mg-2 right now its 160lbs for 5 reps so thats a big difference in weight.. but with this rogue mg 2 bar i fill more muscle engaging and being used ..i use this rogue mg 2 on decline bench ...incline bench...flat bench... standing bar curl and laying tricep extension with no wight ... i highly recommend it to anyone out there just remember to start out with no weight on the bar then work your self up to heavy weight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big help I bought this to force me to use better form for bench & Ali I ate stress on my shoulder, & I have found it is a great way to do neutral grip pull ups.
