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. 

Overview and review of the Rogue RM-4 Monster Rack

 

 

 

Price: 1.300 - 1765$

This 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$. The Rogue Monster RM4 rack gives a cage for your powerlifting needs without providing a lot of storage options. See the details in this article.

Overview of the RM4

 

The RM4 is the core of the Rogue Monster rack series. This is the full rack that can be built onto in many ways. As it is part of the Monster series you can choose between 90'', 100'' and 108'' in height. The RM4 is 49'' long and wide. The overall footprint comes to 53''x53''. You get westside spacing and a multitude of colors to choose from. These are:
 
  • Bright Blue
  • Bright Green
  • Burnt Orange
  • Dark Blue
  • Gun Metal
  • Light Gray
  • Rogue Red
  • White
  • Satin Clear
  • Satin Black
With the MOnster rack, you are entering Rogue's flagship series of construction. This protects your investment for the future. You can choose from multiple options like Flip down safeties and 2'' Monster Sandwich J cups for your own comfort. 
 

How many clients should the Rogue RM4 Monster Rack bring you?

 
If you think that the Rogue RM4 will bring you 5 new clients who pay you 50$ on a 1-year retainer it is worth the investment. This will yield 3.000$ net new revenue against an investment of 1.300$. Adjust the numbers for your own gym accordingly.
 

Pros of the Rogue RM4

This is a rack that can be upgraded easily while still being in the Monster series of Rogue. This is one of the most cost-effective options to get into the Monster portfolio with a relatively standard product to build upon. There are less costly options in the Monster series, but they are specialty racks which might lead to challenges when upgrading.
 

Cons of the Rogue RM4

The biggest con for the Monster series is the price tag. You can get a lot more rack for the same price out of the Infinity series. 
 

Alternatives to the Rogue RM4

Here are some alternatives within the Rogue portfolio based on a budget of 1.300$
 
With the Rogue RML 490C, you basically get the same amount of rack space at a lower space. The Monster Lite series is built a bit less sturdy than the Monster series. Some of the bigger machines also do not attach to the Monster Lite series. Apart from this, you save 300$ for more or less the same effect. 
 
If you are considering to upgrade your existing gym you might want to consider metal jerk blocks instead. This will help to attract professional weightlifters to your gym who usually pay more and stay for longer. This is only an option when you have the basics already covered. #
 

Conclusion

The RM4 is a bit friendlier on your purse than its big brother the RM6. You still get a good option out of the Monster series to do your workouts in. Be mindful of where to store your plates when you buy the RM4 as it is very unlikely that there will be enough room on the rack itself.
