Rogue Tricep Strap (Leather)

If you want a leather based tricep strap this is an incredibly well done option. Made by Pioneer and sold through Rogue it has all the quality you'd expect from a joint project between the two.

Single Handle Cable Attachment

An incredibly high quality handle that lives up to the price. The straps are a nylon webbing and the knurled handles function as good as they feel. Probably my favorite functional trainer attachment Rogue makes.

Stainless Steel Lat Bar

This thing is a real eye catcher. Fully knurled with a beautiful stainless steel finish it's gotten more than a few comments in my gym.

Rogue Standard Grip Triangle

Rogue's take at a row handle features everything you'd expect from them. With knurled 1.3" handles, black powder coat, and a laser cut Rogue logo it's well made and built to last.

Rogue Monster Grip Triangle

Essentially a beefier version of their Standard Grip Triangle. Weighing twice as much (10lbs) with thicker 2" handles this thing truly lives up to the name.

Rogue Tricep Push Down

The perfect way to work on those beefy arms or defend yourself in an apocalypse. Featuring a textured powder coat and classic Rogue American made quality your kids will be passing this down to their kids.

Ibought every cable attachment that Rogue makes. Ok, technically I didn't buy ones that were functionally the same just made of a different material (leather vs webbed tricep straps for example) , but I bought every unique one they make. Did I need this stuff? No, my cable machine came from a commercial gym that was closing down and it came with everything they had, honestly more than anyone needs but I wanted to do some upgrading and thought it might make for a fun video so here we are.

The theme for this video (and article) is that all of these items, from a price standpoint, are hard to justify. They're honestly just expensive and when I bought them all they cost over $900 for 6 items including shipping. That cost a few months later has ballooned to over $1,000. Do I regret my purchases? No, I think they're all very well made and function probably better than expected overall but that doesn't mean I couldn't get them from somewhere else for less (though admittedly not remotely at the same quality).

In this article (and the video) I'll also offer up a few alternatives if you can't seem to stomach spending quite as much. I get it, it's a lot and you can get the same functionality for a lot less.

Rogue's Multi Grip Cable Attachment

Power Rack

I originally purchased this in September of 2020 and it was much more reasonably priced then but has since shot up quite a bit. I have a hard time recommending this to most people because of the price hike but after having it for a few months and allowing the sticker shock to wear off I'm pretty happy with it. It's a nice piece of equipment at 48" long with 4 sets of handles and weighs in at a hefty 25lbs.  The size can also be it's own worse enemy because your machine probably doesn't have enough resistance to support it which makes switching between weights, or between people, when it's attached, a difficult task. Made in the US and very well made at that, this thing will outlast your kid's kids but at the size and price it's probably a bit hard to justify for a home gym. If you can manage to convince yourself (or the wife) to pick one up it's a pretty piece with nice welds, knurled handles, a quality powder coat finish (though mine was a bit off where the cable attaches but not a big deal).

Budget Alternative: Titan Fitness Multi Grip Lat Pulldown

Power Rack

A good option to look at if you're not up for paying for the Rogue quality. This is essentially the same thing at a much lower price. I say essentially because that change in price has to come from somewhere. This is an imported item that doesn't feature the same build quality but it does accomplish the same thing on a daily basis in your gym. You won't be bragging about the welds and showing it off to your family (who does that?) but it'll get you to the same place in the end.

Titan Multi-Grip Lat Pulldown

A solid second choice if you can't quite justify Rogue's version. They both do the same thing are nearly identical in specs but nowhere near in pricing.

Rogue Tricep Strap

Power Rack

When I first got this in I thought no matter what I paid for this, it was too much but after using it for months I have to say I really like it. If you're the creative type you can find a ton of uses for this strap and I find it hits muscles differently and effectively for certain exercises. I do wish the padding was more substantial or durable but that might be me nitpicking. Technically the padding works quite well I just debate how well it'll last after a few years of use. Now there are cheaper options for sure but once you factor in shipping, quality, Rogue's customer service, and that Rogue name the difference either isn't worth it or the prices end up being the same.

Rogue makes two versions of the tricep strap the nylon webbed version and the leather version which is actually made by Pioneer and sold through Rogue. Both are very well made you'll just have to make a choice as to which one you prefer.

Rogue Tricep Strap (Nylon)

With 1.5" wide quality nylon webbing and padding on the inside it's a quality attachment for your functional trainer.

Rogue Tricep Strap (Leather)

Alternative Choices for Tricep Straps

If you're looking for something a little different out of your tricep strap here's a few I think are worth a look. Some of these are also sold on Rogue's website though there are cheaper (and more expensive) options elsewhere.

Spud Inc Short Ab Strap

Regardless of the name this thing can be used for a ton of exercises. Spud Inc is known for the quality of it's webbing so even though this is a simple piece, it'll last long long time while adding a lot of versatility to your workouts.

Sling Shot Tricep Shake Strap

Add a little fun to your workouts with this one. Using sling short stretchable material allows this strap to not only provide a greater range of motion for exercises, much like a band it'll add resistance throughout the movement.

IPR Fitness Pro ISO Handle

A final option (also made in the US and a veteran owned business) is from IPR Fitness. It's 16" long with padding inside the handles and  highly rated on Amazon. Priced around the same as Rogue's but there's also cheaper or longer versions as well.

Rogue Single Handle Cable Attachment

Power Rack

I’m going to start off by saying this thing is pricey especially considering they’re sold individually. I’m not backing down on this one, there’s no way around it, it costs too much for what it is. But I also really like it. Everytime I buy something like this and need to feel better about my purchases or justify them to Wynie, I like to play a game called at least I didn’t buy something from Prime Fitness. Their Kaz Handles are over $135 shipped for the pair so… I mean I basically saved money buying these. I was losing money by not buying them… (quietly) because these only cost me $105 shipped. Wynie: what, Me: Nothing honey. Jokes aside, they're really well made, rotate and move very smoothly through the range of motion, and besides the price, which is the theme for this video, they’re great. Exceptional build quality and better than what you’ll find in many commercial gyms. Actually my old handles are from a commercial gym and these blow them away. Are they necessary, no, but then again all of these items are over the top for a home gym

Single Handle Cable Attachment

An incredibly high quality handle that lives up to the price. The straps are a nylon webbing and the knurled handles function as good as they feel. Probably my favorite functional trainer attachment Rogue makes.

Alternative Choices for Handles

There's a ton of companies that make these things so rather than post every single option I'll give a middle and budget tier. That's not to say Rogue is the fanciest option, not even close in this category but perhaps covering all the options is better left for another video and article.

Rep Fitness Pro D Handle

This isn't the only time Rep will end up on this list. Their Pro Series attachments are well made and competitively priced but the performance series is worth a look as well. If you prefer a fully metal handle I think the majority of people will be very happy with this one.

IPR Fitness Hex Handles

Another well done piece made by IPR fitness. Made in the US and sold as a pair. If you're searching for a quality and want a few options for colors these are worth a look. Highly rated with a hex handle shape that is very comfortable to hold and use.

Dozens of Cheap Knockoffs

I'm not saying you have to spend $70+ to get a good set of handles but I'd personally avoid many of the rebranded knockoffs all over Amazon. Sets like this are very popular and well rated but aren't going to hold up like better options. They do work though!

Rogue Stainless Lat Bar

Power Rack

Did I need to upgrade from my old lat bar? Not at all, but then again I didn't need any of the things on this list. I'll be the first to tell you my old stuff accomplished all the same things as would many options that cost much less. That being said I'm glad I have this thing. It clearly belongs in a commercial gym but I take pride in knowing I can pass this onto my kids. At 48" long and fully knurled with a stainless steel finish and a laser cut Rogue logo it's a beautifully done attachment and a huge step up from my old cheap chrome plated one.

Rep Fitness Pro Lat Bar

Rep actually makes a a full line of attachments for cable machines. Their Performance and Pro lines have a lot of options that are a step up from most of the stuff you'll find on Amazon. This 48" Pro Series Lat Bar is a solid choice especially with shipping included.

Rogue Grip Triangle

Power Rack

 Rogue's grip triangle comes in two variations, the standard grip weighing in at 5lbs with 1.3" diameter handles and the Monster grip with 2" handles and weighing in at 10lbs. They both have handles that are about 7" long (the Monster is 7.5") with laser cut steel plates holding it all together. The black powder coat is textured and it looks and feels great to use. With that being said it might be the hardest thing on the list to justify. The price is pretty high for what it is and there are a lot of cheaper options out there. If you want the best, this might be it but it's not going to do anything a cheaper one won't (except maybe last forever).

Amazon Basics V Grip

Amazon can make and deliver anything to us cheaper than anyone else. I'm not so sure that's always a good thing but it's hard to argue this attachment won't do anything for you that other's can and at a much cheaper price.

Rogue Tricep Pushdown

Power Rack

At the risk of repeating myself this is a very well done attachment. With pretty welds and a nice textured black powder coat finish it does everything a cheaper alterative would, this one will just outlast you. The handles have about 6" of usable space but I tend to hold the balls at the bottom (ok I know how it sounds reading that...) to force myself to really contract those triceps,  After buying all of these I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all these carabiners but I do know these attachments are going to be a staple in my workouts until I'm too old to do it anymore.

Attachment Sets off Amazon

If you're just looking for something that works and don't mind possibly upgrading later sets like these are very popular. They won't last nearly as long or catch as many eyes but you'll make the same gains with them.

Rep Fitness Attachments

I know I've mentioned Rep Fitness a few times in this article but they're definitely worth a look if you're shopping around. Their Pro Series package is less than Rogue's Multi Grip on it's own (though that D handle is sold individually).
