Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat - Drop-In
New Patented System - For Use with Rogue Monster & Fortis Power Racks

The drop-in version of the Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat is designed exclusively for use with our Monster Series Power Racks and Fortis Racks and offers athletes the ability to get many of the lower body training benefits of squats and other workouts without putting unnecessary stress on the shoulders or lower back (See Also: Free Standing Rhino and  Rhino + RM-3 Rack package)

This unit is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, and features 3x3" arms and crossmembers, a 3x6" weight trolley tower, and a 0.25" braided cable for raising/lowering the weight trolley. When not in use, the trolley is stored on a 1" thick UHMW plastic hook, or “Rhino Horn.” A diamond-tread plate platform provides steady footing, adjustable handles offer overhand and neutral grip options, and our exclusive Rogue Multi Belt (included standard) easily accommodates most waist sizes, with adjustments from 41” to 61”. The entire Rhino unit (aside from the platform, handles and weight posts) is finished in our Medium Gloss Black powdercoat.

SET-UP:  Important -The Drop-In Monster Rhino Belt Squat can be used ONLY in conjunction with an existing Monster or Fortis Power Rack. The unit ships freight, with some assembly required, and it must be bolted to the floor before use. A pair of Monster 1” Wrenches are included, however additional tools will be required to finish assembly. When complete, the trolley tower will reach a height of 78.5" from the floor, and the unit will extend approx. 21.5" off the back face of the rack uprights closest to the tower. Additional clearance (beyond 21.5") is required for adding plates.

Using the Rhino Belt Squat: Step onto the platform and strap on the Rogue Multi Belt around your hips. Upon standing up, the trolley will rise and disengage from the Rhino Horn. This allows users to then pull back on the handles and start squatting. Once the handles are pulled back, they will stay back until the user pushes the handles back towards the tower, allowing the horn to safely re-engage the trolley.

Belt Squats provide traction to the spine, help add substantial volume to the legs, and offer versatility for other types of training, from calf raises to rows, shrugs, and deadlifts—all easily performed even in a home gym with limited space.

1

Loadable Weight Trolley

Our unique weight trolley design (patent pending) features two stainless steel, horizontal weight posts with 15.75" of loading capacity on each side. A set of (4) machined Acetal rollers, each containing (2) bearings, ensure the trolley moves smoothly up and down the rail. Laser-cut Rogue branding is featured on each side, and the tower includes a Rhino sticker on each side, as well.

2

Squat Platform

The platform of the Monster Rhino Belt Squat is made from 0.125" thick diamond tread plate and is finished in our Signature Texture Black powdercoat to provide advanced durability and a non-slip surface. The tread plates sit on top of a 1" x 3" steel frame that gets bolted to the user’s power rack for additional stability and rigidity. The platform dimensions are 26" deep (with cut outs for uprights so it fits in a 24" depth rack) x 48.5" wide. When the unit is installed, the top of the platform sits 7" above the ground.

3

Rhino Horn

This is a 1" thick UHMW plastic horn, sandwiched between steel plates, that holds the trolley when not in use. The Rhino Horn is adjustable up and down so that the "racked" or resting height of the trolley can be accommodated to specific users heights.

4

Adjustable Handles

The handles on the Rhino are 1.25" in diameter and can be adjusted up or down for the user’s comfort. They allow for both overhand and neutral grip positions. The inside of the channel on the handles features UHMW plastic so as not to damage the handle / uprights when it is moved up or down.

5

Exclusive Squat Belt

Each Rhino unit includes a custom designed Rogue Multi Belt, made in the USA. This exclusive squat belt offers six adjustable size settings (from 41” to 61”), built-in padding for reduced hip friction, and a spacer mesh interior for breathability. It was developed from an original design brought to us by Brian Henesey of OverAchieve Sports and Speed.

6

Band Pegs

At the base of the trolley tower are two welded-on pegs that allow users to attached bands for resistance work.

Fantastic drop-in
We got this for my husband who had back surgery and needed a way to strengthen his legs without exposing his back. It turns out that I use it every bit as much as he does. I was worried about the drop-in into our RM-3 Monster rack, but it worked out perfectly with some space at the bottom to fully engage our trolley arms that we use on the outside of the rack. We really love the set-up and versatility. With regard to the belt, as a small woman (5’2, 115), the belt Rogue provides did not come close to fitting me. Thankfully, I have a belt that I’ve been using for weighted pull-ups that works perfectly for the rhino. I did notice some soreness in my obliques as I moved into the heavier weights, it wouldn’t have been as noticeable if not for my running which I think exacerbated it a bit. But that didn’t stop me from wanting to use the rhino and the soreness is subsiding as my body acclimates. Overall, long-term garage gym junky, and this is some of the best gear that I’ve ever owned.

Multifunctional
the drop in rhino is extremely versatile especially when built as the Coop rack. Thats where the real value comes in on this machine. Rogue needs to sell that as a kit and build off of it.

Great product
I am a veteran with my back is service connected. Meaning wearing all that heavy gear caused disc issues and nerve issues that I am stuck with forever. Ive had to stop back squatting and I rely on leg presses and other machines for adding leg strength and size. The rhino has allowed me to squat again or at least a version of the squat. And believe it or not it decompresses my spine and discs every time I use it. My chiropractor noticed the difference and I feel the difference. I have WAY less nerve pain shooting down my legs since belt squatting. With or without back issues its a great workout. If you have back problems its a must have.

So much more than a belt squat
I'm very happy with it! I got the drop-in version and installed it in my RM-6 rack. Setup/installation took probably 4 hours with 2 people. This thing is massive. The rhino horn alone (the largest piece) is over 100lbs and a bit awkward to carry, so I recommend having a friend with you to help put it together. It's a lot of work, do this on a rest day. Install was mostly smooth except for a couple issues with pieces fitting together, we used a mallet to slam a couple pieces in. That being necessary was a bit disappointing, and made the setup a much longer process. In the end everything was fine. Now for the best parts: yes it's a great belt squat. But what I really like is all the other movements you can do with it. You can also use it as a low or high cable as well! Get your self some cable handles (I like the Spud Inc handles) plus a tricep strap. Then for setting up a high cable, grab the Spud Inc econo pulley and attach it to a pull up bar above the Rhino. You can use the band pegs on the horn also to add some really interesting resistance to cable movements. Overall very happy with it and enjoying all the new movements it's added to my home gym.

Versatile
I use this everyday in some way and absolutely love it. From belt squats to back work I can't say enough good things. Added two crossmembers to the top of my rack, and also got the slinger to make the Rhino into a lat pulldown. Amazing quality.

Great Build Quality...But A Few Suggestions
The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is because of the pain in the butt it was to put this thing together. Observation 1: The monster bolts are painted black. That does two things. (1) It chips and the bolts don't look as "clean" and crisp as you would expect from Rogue. But more importantly (2) it makes the nuts very difficult to wrench on. They seem to stick maybe because of the paint. Unless you have a pneumatic driver or a large socket wrench, I'd be willing to say it'd be almost impossible to put together. I'm not sure you can get enough torque on the wrenches provided. Therefore, I think just using the standard chrome Monster bolts would be much better...less sticking and would look cleaner. Observation 2: The other difficult thing is that the bolts to mount the floor plates can be tough to get through the holes and wrench from the bottom. Observation 3: Just know that you will need multiple wrenches/sockets, allen wrenches, and probably at least a rubber mallet to get all of the pieces lined up. It can be a very tight fit. Observation 4: The figures in the instructions are a bit small. I would suggest enlarging them. For example, I didn't notice that the very first step of putting the brackets on requires them to be in a certain orientation. Similarly when putting on the arms. My fault...but I just think if the detail was enlarged, it would be easier to notice. Overall: But its built like a tank and seems to move quite well. Very happy with it in general. Oh, and it will fit both in a 24 inch or 30 inch deep space (so long as its 43 inches wide) So yes I would recommend.

Terrific Belt Squat & Lives Up to Name
I purchased the Rogue Monster Rhino Belt Squat for my RM-6 rack and I could not be happier with the purchase. Just like most Rogue equipment, it is heavy duty and well done. I went with the drop-in option to optimize space in my garage and I feel I can do way more with it since it is inside of my rack. The Rhino Belt Squat is really smooth when performing belt squats and front squats. I feel that the possibilities are endless in what exercises I can do with the Rhino Belt Squat given that it is inside of my rack. The Rhino Belt Squat allows me to add more variety to my leg routine in addition to routine squats. I would recommend the Rogue Multi Belt when doing belt squats, it has a better contour fit than the Spud belt. Given the weight of the RM-6 rack (plus extras) and Rhino Belt Squat, I did not anchor it down and doubt it will ever move.

Rogue never disappoints!
I’ve been using the drop-in Rhino for the past week and it is incredible. I didn’t expect anything less from the company I’ve purchased equipment from since 2009! Rogue never disappoints. Bravo!
