Rogue RML-390F Flat Foot Rack
The Rogue RML-390F Flat Foot Rack is a low-profile power rack that doesn’t need to be bolted down. Its flat-foot base provides enough stability to perform all movements without taking extra measures to affix the rack to the ground or a platform. This 4-post rack is constructed with 3×3 11-gauge steel with 5/8″ holes and Westside spacing. It’s compatible with Rogue’s Monster Lite attachments as well as some attachments from other companies.
The Monster Lite Racks from Rogue are excellent racks and Rogue has shown a commitment to the line. If you want the most future-proof rack in Rogue’s lineup, however, the next level up is the RM-390F Monster Rack.

Features & Highlights
- Steel Size – The RML-390F rack from Rogue is a part of their Monster Lite lineup. It’s constructed with 3×3 11-gauge steel and it’s assembled with a bolt-together design. 3×3 steel is popular for its strength, attachment compatibility, and its overall aesthetic.
- 4-Post Design – As a 4-post rack, you’ll save some space compared to a 6-post rack. There are two other differences worth considering: plate storage and stability. On a 4-post rack, while you can store plates on the back upright, you may find that the plates can interfere with your setup when lifting inside the rack. In terms of stability, this rack does not need to be bolted to anything since it uses a flat-foot base. Depending on your situation, this may be a big advantage.
- Hole/Hardware Sizing – This rack uses 5/8″ hardware, which is one of the most common hardware sizes used on power racks. The rack will accommodate all of Rogue’s Monster Lite Attachments/Accessories as well as some from other companies (read more in the compatibility section below).
- Hole Spacing – The RML-390F offers Westside hole spacing, which is a common feature on 5/8″ racks. The holes are spaced 1″ apart through the bench zone, allowing for finer adjustments on your J-cups and safeties. This can be useful for people who are “in-between” sizes. Above and below the Westside section are holes with standard 2″ spacing between them.
- Exterior Rack Dimensions – This is a space-friendly rack that measures 48″ deep, 49″ wide, and 92.375″ tall. In terms of the uprights themselves, the dimensions are 30″ or 36″ deep and 49″ wide. A 49″ width is fairly common for 3×3 racks, but one of the downsides is you have less room between the uprights and the plates. This requires a more efficient walk-out/re-rack since there’s a greater risk of hitting the uprights with your plates.
- Interior Rack Dimensions – The 390F offers a 30″ interior depth, which is plenty of room to comfortably lift in.
- Safety Options – This rack includes pin & pipe safeties as standard, which are common for this style of rack. This safety system is a bit cumbersome to set up and it has a powder-coated exterior, which isn’t great for barbell protection. Rogue does not offer full interior safeties with UHMW lining for their Monster Lite racks, but they do offer safety straps. Safety straps work extremely well and they’re much more protective of your bar. Rogue does not recommend using their spotter arms on the outside of a flat foot rack.
- Made in America – The RML-390F Flat Foot Rack is made in Ohio.
What’s Included in the Box
The Rogue RML-390F Flat Foot Rack includes several pieces as standard:
- (2) Monster Lite J-Cups with UHMW Lining
- (2) Pin & Pip Safeties
- (1) 43″ Fat/Skinny Skinny Pull-Up Bar OR (1) 43″ Single Skinny Pull-up Bar
- (2) 30″ Crossmembers with Side Holes
- (2) Flat Foot Bases
- (4) 90″ Uprights with Side Holes
The Rogue RML-390F Flat Foot Rack is constructed with 3×3 steel and 5/8″ hardware, which is compatible with Rogue’s Monster Lite Attachments.
Here you can add additional accessories to your rack or you can upgrade the ones that come standard with the RML-390F. In general, the Monster and Monster Lite accessories are much more comprehensive than the Infinity/R-Series line.
Some attachments that I think are worthy of considering include the Rogue Matador, the Rogue Landmine, the Adjustable Monolift, the Sandwich J-Cups, the X-43M Multi Grip Crossmember, and the Safety Straps.
The Matador allows for a portable dip station, the monolift eliminates the squat walk-out and makes bench setup MUCH easier, and the landmines open up a ton of barbell movement versatility. The sandwich cups are a big improvement over the standard J-cups, the X-43 provides additional pull-up variety, and the safety straps are a big improvement over the pin & pipes.
As for attachment compatibility outside of Rogue Fitness, notable places to look are REP Fitness and Titan Fitness. Each of these companies offers attachments that will fit 3×3 and 5/8″ hardware (REP PR-4000 and Titan X-3). One thing to keep in mind is that imported racks use the metric system vs. the imperial system on USA-made racks. This means that hole spacing will be slightly shorter. If you find an attachment that has two pins (or a single pin with a second hitch pin) then it may not fit properly. Single-pin attachments tend to work fine.
What They’re Saying at Rogue Fitness
The Rogue RML-390F Flat Foot Rack receives great feedback from users. With an average rating of 4.9/5, here are some of the things people have said at roguefitness.com.
- “So, about 6 months ago I purchased this Monster Lite Power Rack. Ever since my purchased I have been completely happy with this product. I have no wear and tear, the bolts are still in place, the rack has not shifted what so ever, and the equipment is easy to clean. I have updated some additional photos because I saw that a few of you seemed to not be convinced by this product. I am a SWAT cop and I must say that this garage gym is my temple and this power rack completes this gym. So far I have had 6 different people come by to workout with me and they absolutely love this product from Rogue. Stop hesitating and make the purchase guys and gals!!”
- “Thanks to this piece of equipment, it’s easy to stay fit, strong and sane while Los Angeles gyms are still closed. The 3×3 uprights are solid and the 30″ clearance is perfect for bench & squat. The workmanship is superb with clean welds and powder coat finish. I replaced the pin & pipe safeties with the Safety Strap System 2.0. Since there’s no option for numbered uprights, I bought 4 packs of Duro 1/2″ Gothic Letters/Numbers in silver. Tip: wipe surface with rubbing alcohol & apply numbers with tweezers”
- “I was hesitant to buy a rack that didn’t bolt to the floor but wanted to be able to move it around as needed without the hassle of drilling over and over. This thing barely moves with pull ups and toes to bar. I’m about 185 5’11”. Very pleased with my rogue home gym so far.”
- “I have a relatively small space for a gym, and no good option for drilling into the floor. This rack proved to be the perfect solution. Super sturdy, easy to assemble, everything fit together cleanly and perfectly. Feels super solid. Also, loving all the accessories that perfectly go with the rack, such as the vertical bar holder and the matador for dips.”
- “First the word “lite” is a misnomer. There is nothing lite or flimsy about this gear. It is solid, quality built and the cornerstone of my home training center. Assembled it alone in about an hour. Buy, rent, borrow or steal an impact wrench and 15/16 wrench and socket. This simplifies assembly immensely. Directions were pretty clear and I had no issues putting it together. I would recommend this as a 2 person job to anyone getting one. This thing is great I am a hefty boy 260 lbs and shrinking and I do pullups, dips with the matador , squat 375 with nary a twitch out of this thing. I highly recommend this rack if like me you cant bolt to the concrete (infloor radiant heat). I am a rogue fanboy and proudly so they provide great gear, quality for price, awesome customer service and prompt delivery.”
- “As a 66 year young person, I purchased this as the combination of the SML-2C and the conversion kit to make a RML-390 Flatfoot so I could have a choice of colored uprights while preventing muscular atrophy. Purchased extra j-cups, three sets of weight pins, substituted safety straps and a knurled pull-up bar. It looks marvelous and the quality is great. Ordering and delivery went smoothly. A little side-to-side moment if you purposely shake it in that direction. None front-to-back. High quality fit and finish all around.”
- “I like it. Sturdy for a rack that doesn’t bolt. I got the fat-skinny bar which I would not recommend. It doesn’t configure well with the rack and not good for pull ups. I’m trying to get the skinny pull up bar as a replacement and it’s taking me over a month to do so because they are not making them separately at the moment.”
