Pros of the Titan floor and glute hamstring developer

 
 
  • Compact design
  • Low price
 
The two main positives about this Glute ham developer are its compact design and low price. Compared to the bigger machines this cuts your invest by two thirds and you usually do not load Glute ham development exercises heavy anyway. This can be stowed away under the bed and wait for you in the mornings or evening to do your prehab and rehab before you do your heavy lifting somewhere in the day.
 

Cons of the Titan floor glute and hamstring developer

 
 
  • Can move around while you are exercising.
  • Close to the ground might not be for everyone
 
If you are giving it your all on this machine with yanking movements it can start to travel on the floor. If you get this and use it regularly I recommend that work with very controlled movements. With the bigger machines you can get away with more and of course also fit bigger athletes on them to train.
 
With this machine you are very close to the ground. Depending on where your gym is, what type of floor you have and how regular it is being cleaned not everyone might like to have their face in the mud.
 

Alternatives to the Titan floor glute and hamstring developer

 
 
 
The TITAN Glute and hamstring developer is the best machine you can get from TITAN to train your posterior chain. It combines a GHD and a reverse hyper based on the Economy H-PND. The pad might be a bit small depending on your own size, bu overall this is a solid option for all your posterior chain needs if you can fit it in your gym.
 
The TITAN H-PND is the biggest reverse hyper you can get From TITAN. It has a massive table and steel tubes. The padding can take almost anyone on and you will not be disappointment. This is a good option for a Iron den gym that is looking into getting a reverse hyper and a separate GHD.
 
The Rogue Donkey is the current gold standard in the industry for reverse hypers and GHD machines. It is build like a tank, has a great pad and is finished with great stitching and leather. All of this also comes at a high price and space requirements. We are in the range of $2000 for this machine and it takes up considerable space.
 

Conclusion for the Titan glute and hamstring developer

 
The TITAN Glute and hamstring developer is a great option for a home gym or a commercial gym with very limited space. It is easy to store and move and does not cost a lot to train your glutes. The only downside is that it can not be loaded with weight and might move around on the ground of your exercising like a maniac on it.

his review was originally posted in the longer article "Which strength equipment to buy from rogue" in which you can read about 25 products of Rogue which cost more than 1.000$.

What else to consider from Rogue


Overview of the Rhino belt Squat

 
The Rhino Belt squat machine is one of the latest additions to the big machine line up of Rogue. The version including a rack delivers a half rack including the Rhino setup to your home. It comes in Rogue black with a length of 51.5'', width of 49'' and height of 100.375''.  The unloaded trolley weight is 27.5lb.
 
Squat belt machines are popular to get more leg work in while putting less stress on the lower back. Especially older athletes tend to get upper body injuries or ailments in the lower back. To take away a bit of the strain created by the barbell back squat or front squat you can supplement with Belt squats. 
 
The Rhino includes the newest pulley system designed by Rogue, which seem to be living up to the hype. You will get a very versatile machine for this price. This configuration also includes J cups to be ready to go for squatting inside or outside this half rack.
 

Pros of the Rhino belt Squat

 
This is a well-built machine which will give you the best pulley system of Rogue to date. If you want to build a home gym that does not take up a lot of space and also allows to train without a barbell, the Rhino Belt Squat hits the spot. You get 2 weight posts with 15.75'' loading capacity on each side. The belt can also be used for dips and other exercises. 
 

Cons of the Rhino Belt Squat

 
This is a machine that is mainly targeted at clients and athletes who want to lift heavy and can not use a barbell to do this. Especially powerlifters will like this machine. If your clients are not powerlifters, injured often or just simply do not move heavy weights you might be better off investing your money in equipment that covers their needs better. 
 
 

How many clients should the Rhino belt squat bring you?

 
If you think that the Rhino Belt with Rack will bring you 10 new clients who pay you 50$ on a 1-year retainer it is worth the investment. This will yield 6.000$ net new revenue against an investment of 2.750$. Adjust the numbers for your own gym accordingly.
 

Alternatives to the Rhino belt Squat

 
There are a couple of alternatives to the Rhino Belt squat from the Rogue Portfolio. These are:
 
 
This version saves you a bit of money and even more important than that, floor space. If you already own one or multiple RM6 racks you should seriously consider this upgrade for your gym. Especially when almost no one is using the half racks at the back. This is also a great option for home gym owners who are a bit older or get injured often who want to have a backup plan to barbell squats, without losing too much footprint.
 
 
The squat Standalone version is the right option if you already own one or more racks and have plenty of floor space to fill. This saves you about 1.000$ which you can invest in other equipment like barbells and plates
 
 
 
This would be the most cost-efficient and versatile option. The jerk blocks can be set up for a belt squat so that the athlete stands on the blocks. You can use the dip belt to attach the weight. This setup usually requires a second person to help out. Otherwise, you have to climb the boxes with the weight attached or do some other wild acrobatics. The pros of this package are that the blocks can also be used for deadlift block pulls, jerk training and even as storage.
 

Conclusion

The Rhino Belt squat is especially a good investment if your gym is very powerlifting or rehabilitation focused. With this machine you can still train heavy while giving big athlete's lower backs a rest. In case of injuries the belt squat machine can be used to securely progress back to barbell work while not compromising intensity of the workouts.
