Gear Geeks Unite! Behind the Scenes with Rogue and their Elephant Bar and Deep Dish Plates for the 2016 Arnold

March 22, 2016

What do the strongest men in the world use to deadlift over 1,000lbs? Custom bars and plates, of course! Here’s a dope video from Rogue showing what went into some of the equipment they used for the Arnold this year.
