Pros & Cons

What we like about the product...

  1. The Y-1 Yoke from Rogue is an all-in-one machine that could easily be used in a garage gym in place of a traditional power rack. We've absolute abused ours over the years, and it still looks and performs well.
  2. Great quality with 2x3" 11 gauge steel uprights and a weight capacity of 750 pounds. For its size and maneuverability, it is the highest quality yoke on the market.
  3. The 50" by 48" footprint allows it to fit in even the smallest garage gyms while still saving space for other equipment.
  4. One reviewer commented, "But the versatility of the Y-1 has me stoked beyond belief. Overhead walks, traditional yoke walks, Zercher carries, prowler pushes, you name it" and that echoes the sentiment that is found throughout the reviews of the Y-1 Yoke.
  5. Many people use it as an additional squat rack along with the yoke function making it a legit all-in-one machine.
  6. The uprights have Westside Hole Spacing through the bench area.
  7. 2 bases and 4 skid feet with plate storage posts make the Y-1 very stable during lifts.
  8. The fully adjustable cross-bar allows for yoke carry, Zercher carries, Zercher squats, and sled training all in one machine.
  9. The quality of the machine can be seen at first glance, and many reviewers remark that they receive compliments on the look of the yoke.
  10. It is easily customizable for more than one person to use the Y-1 at a time no matter the size or strength difference.
  11. It is a Rogue product that is made in the USA and comes back with a great warranty and terrific customer service.

What needs improvement...

  1. It's a little short, especially if you are over 5'10 there may be some issues when using the Y-1 Yoke for squatting.
  2. The crossbar can be difficult to adjust during your workout and can add time to your workout.

    The Bottom Line

    The Rogue Y-1 Yoke was one of Rogue's most popular initial offerings and still remains an awesome piece of equipment for a home gym. We've used and abused the Y-1 and our review remains the same. It's excellent. If the height of the Y-1 is a potential problem for you or a workout partner then you may consider a different Rogue offering, but the Y-1 is perfect for most garage applications. With a smaller footprint, the versatility to perform almost any exercise, and great quality of construction, the Y-1 should be in consideration for anyone adding a yoke to their gym or someone not wanting a traditional power rack, but rather a cheaper, more versatile option.
