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 Excellent Bar for Bad Shoulders I'll start off by saying I wanted this bar mainly because of a bad right shoulder (and sadly, I am only in my 20s). Before buying, I scoured the internet for all of the major multi-grip (EG, football/swiss) bars on the market and in all, after watching videos, looking at pictures, and reading tons of reviews, I decided on the Rogue MG-24 Multi-Grip Bar. I'll talk about the one negative first. And by negative, I mean just a minor issue. The entire bar is covered in a black powder coat...so, by putting plates on aggressively, scraping any part of the bar against any metal parts of your rack, or scraping it against any rough surface in general will cause the powder coat to slowly come off. I have a power rack that has rubber on the J-Cups and safeties and I take extra care when changing plates. Yes, it will still wear off where the plates sit on the sleeves because the plates can and will spin slightly on the sleeves when lifting; however, this is a minor issue for me. If this is a sticking point for you, there are other swiss bars on the market that are more expensive, but are made of stainless steel or coated with a material that is more resistant to scraping. My one minor complaint aside, let me tell you how awesome this bar is. Even though I bought it for bench press to help with my shoulder, I have used it for other lifts and aside from my Stainless Steel 45 lb. Rogue Ohio Power Bar which is my favorite bar (the knurling is awesome and my favorite lift is deadlift), this is hands down my second favorite bar and unless I really, really want to for some reason, I plan on only doing bench press with this bar. So, what other lifts have I used it for? Close grip bench (so awesome), bicep curls (it's even more awesome if I put my fat gripz on there to workout my forearms too!), and military press (really sweet, although slightly awkward at first). As other people have said, it's a little awkward for bent over rows so I may try those in the future. I also will have to try some skull crushers at some point too. As far as bench press and close grip bench go, this bar is really, really awesome on my shoulder. And also, I feel this in my chest way more than with straight bar bench (I use the 3rd handle from the center). Also, even when I do close grip bench (2nd handle from the center because the inside handles are a little too close for me) I can still feel a good amount of chest on top of the insane pump in my triceps. Now, one thing that people have also mentioned is that it's grips ARE NOT knurled - they are smooth with just the black powder coat. I was at first really torn between the MG-1 and MG-3 as they are both knurled; however, I wanted a bar with all of the grips at an inward angle like the MG-24 (it does feel even better on my shoulders than the 'straight' grips of the MG-1 and MG-3). I thought that if my hands were a little sweaty it'd be hard. But, even doing curls, it's pretty easy to hold on to because you can just brace your hands at the top of each grip where the grips meet the cross bar. And then of course doing any kind of pure pressing like bench is super easy without knurling as the bar is simply resting on your hands. Would I still be okay with knurling? Sure, I love knurling. But unless I am trying to do a pulling lift (like bent over rows or deadlift), the smooth grips work without issue and knurling is not needed, even with sweaty hands. Also, make sure to buy the Rogue HG-2 Axle Collars as normal barbell collars ARE TOO BIG in diameter to fully close around the sleeves and keep the plates in place. Lastly, BE WARNED! When you first use it, I'd start with a really low weight and slowly work your way up until you get used to balancing it in your hands because it is a little tough! But, this balancing act works your stabilizer muscles in a similar fashion as dumbbell bench press does so that is a cool benefit.
