Overview of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The TITAN wall mounted pulley tower is a great solution for any home gym that wants a pulley, but is strapped for space. The only prerequisite is that you are allowed to drill into the walls and ideally it is one of the outdoor / carrying walls. Plaster walls might not be ideal to install this so check your setup before getting to business. This pulley tower is plate loadable and comes with the necessary straps included in the shipping to start training. For the price you can not really complain and turn your gym in a more complete experience. The full specification of the TITAN wall mounted pulley system are:
 
- Compatible with the T-3, X-2, X-3, and TITAN Series Power Racks
- Small footprint makes this Wall Mounted Pulley Tower a perfect addition for those with limited space
- Heavy-duty powder-coated steel frame
- Standard 1-inch weight posts with 7-inches of loadable sleeve length
- 18-Different adjustable positions opens up a variety of exercises to suit any size athlete
- Bottom bracket allows you to install the pulley tower into walls without disrupting your baseboard
- Includes: (2) single-hand straps
 
- Overall Height: 84.5-in.
- Footprint: 27-in x 26.5-in.
- Overall Depth: 25.5-in.
- Weight Capacity: 350 lb.
- Product Weight: 75 lb.
 
This is a great addition especially in a garage gym that is cheap, versatile, simple to use and space efficient. Nothing you can do wrong here for the price of a fancy dinner.
 

Pros of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The pros of the TITAN wall mounted pulley are:
 
  • Price
  • Versatility
  • Space requirements
 
The price of this pulley system is almost impossible to beat. You still get an industrial grade machine for the price of a consumer product. IT can be used for almost any pulley exercise you might wanted to do on a bigger station without the disadvantage of the lack of stability and the need for more space. Easy solution for a great gym addition.
 

Cons of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower

 
The cons of the TITAN wall mounted pulley tower are:
 
  • Wall installation
  • Plate loaded
 
The only real problem with this is that the tools you need to drill into the wall will probably cost more to rent or buy than the pulley station itself. It also depends on whether you are actual allowed to drill into the walls of the house or apartment you are living in.
 
You will also need to factor in the cost of plates,if you do not already have some. 230lbs can be gotten from TITAN for about $400.
 

Alternatives to the Titan wall mounted pulley tower

 
 
The TITAN lat tower includes a seat and a weight stack for up to 300lbs to do lat pulls and rows. The design is a clone of the Rogue lat pull which outperforms the TITAN lat tower in the finish and finer details. Apart from that it is the same machine for a considerably lower cost.
 
If you only want a machine to perform rows, the TITAN plate loaded seated row is a good option with a small footprint that does not need to be installed on the wall. It comes including the seat and setup to row away once it is build. The only downside is that it is a one trick pony and not very versatile compared to the wall mounted pulley.
 
The Rogue Jammer bar is a high quality pull up bar from Rogue that you can install over a door frame. I highly recommend to install it at the kitchen door and do pull ups whenever you go in or come out of the kitchen. An easy approach to fitness, relatively cheap and you can not do anything wring with.
 
The Rogue lat pull machine is the current gold standard in the market for lat pull machines. This thing is overbuilt in every way and Rogue paid close attention to the finer details in the finish. This also means that this beast comes in at a high price of around $2000. This is only an option if money is if little concern to you or you running a very professional and highly successful commercial gym.
 

Conclusion for the Titan wall mounted pulley tower

 
The TITAN wall mounted pulley tower is one of the best options to get a pulley system into your home gym. Especially if you are good with tools and know how to install something into a solid wall. If you are not a handyman you can still get someone to install it for you and not be sad, as it was so cheap to buy this thing.
 

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.
