This is equipment that you are recommended to purchase for yourself as needed.
Most things can be purchased on the Rogue online store. Members also sometimes sell or give away their unneeded equipment at the front desk.
Whether you track your progress on your program card, or in a notebook, it’s good to log all weights, sets, failed reps, pains, notes, etc.
Weightlifting shoes have a solid raised heel between 0.5-1.5” to help you keep your torso upright, and get deeper into the squat.
A singlet is a tight fitting 1-piece leotard that must be worn after your first competition.
It helps reduce the possibility of the bar dragging on your clothing, as keeping the bar close is important.
Weightlifting straps can be used to assist in gripping the barbell for pulls, and complexes where the bar does not go down between reps. We avoid relying on straps, as they are not allowed in competition, and grip strength is important. Rogue straps can be bought at the front desk for $12.
Knee wraps/sleeves and wrist wraps can be used to brace joints.
We try not to rely on these things to mask pain, as we’d rather try to address the underlying problem, and rest injured joints instead of making them worse.
Athletic tape and gloves can be used to cover calluses and to protect skin from tearing. Taping thumbs can be useful to alleviate the pain caused by hook-grip. Different types of grips can be used, as well as gloves, but they can interfere with grip. Fingerless gloves are preferable to full gloves. Gymnastic grips can be bought at the front desk for $7.
