Fat Gripz are being used by thousands of athletes and military around the world, including members of the US Special Forces, teams in the NFL/MLB/NHL, top MMA fighters and top bodybuilders. Thick bar training with Fat Gripz immediately targets your body's weak links - increasing muscle activation and giving you more strength and mass.
Fat Gripz fit virtually all barbells, dumbbells, chin-up bars and cable attachments in seconds - making the bar more than twice as thick to help you get big arms. Made from a military-grade high-density compound, they grip the bar like a clamp and don't compress - even when deadlifting extreme loads.
Why Your Body Is Only As Strong As Its Weakest Link?
Your body's weakest link is your grip. It's the same with pretty much everyone: bodybuilder, athlete, MMA fighter. There aren't many people who don't want to improve their grip. But most people don't realize that their grip is holding back their whole body's strength development.
The reason is: most barbells and dumbbells are ridiculously easy to grip. They're designed that way. That's fine when you're getting started. The trouble comes later on...
After you've been training a few months - or even a few years - you'll start to plateau. You just can't keep adding on the weight every session like you used to. So you lift the same - you look the same - month after month, year after year. (I know - that was me for years.)
This is what's been going on. While you've been building up the rest of your body, your grip has been left behind. It has become your weak link. The barbells and dumbbells you've been training with have become your own worst enemy. By being easy for you to grip, they've stopped you developing strength in your hands and your forearms.
Your body is programmed to stay in proportion - so weak forearms put the brakes on your muscular development and stop you from getting big arms
Your body's natural reaction is to prevent imbalance and injury. So if you're lacking strength in your grip and forearms - and almost everyone is - your body literally stops you increasing in strength and size.
Having a strong grip doesn't just mean you can be mashing the Captains of Crush grippers. It literally unlocks your body's potential to smash through your plateau and develop every muscle in your body. You don't need to do more exercises. You don't need grippers or forearm extensions. You don't even need more time in the gym. The most effective way to increase your grip and forearm strength is...
Training with Thick Bars
Thick-bar training is a whole different ball game. It's like watching guys switch from machines to free weights for the first time - the difference is intense and immediate.
"So if thick bar training is so effective, why doesn't everybody do it?"
The secret behind thick-bar training is ridiculously simple. But it can also be ridiculously expensive. Just one high-quality thick barbell can cost over $800.00. That's nothing - a full set of thick dumbbells can cost over $10,000.00!
That's why almost no gyms have thick barbells - let alone dumbbells. The only guys who can afford to get the elite advantage of thick-bar training are Olympic athletes and professional sports teams. But now thick-bar training is within easy reach of anyone in weight lifting, strength training, UFC/MMA and powerlifting.
How Fat Gripz Can Unlock Massive Increases In Your Strength And Mass
Fat Gripz will give you the benefits of thick-bar training - at a fraction of the price. They instantly turn any bar into thick bars. That's why everyone from professional footballers to mixed-martial arts fighters is using them.
Most Olympic bars are from 1 1/8" thick. Slide on your Fat Gripz and all your bars will be more than twice as thick - not just your barbell, but your dumbbells, pull-up bar and cable attachments too. There's no need for extra exercises - no forearm extensions, wrist rollers or grippers. Fat Gripz work with your existing exercise routine to develop functional hand and forearm strength.
Unlike products that you squeeze to get a stronger grip, thick-bar training with Fat Gripz improves your grip when it's at its weakest - when lifting heavy weights. That way, every time you press, row or curl with Fat Gripz, you're improving your grip - your weak link - which in turn trains your chest, back and arms more effectively.
The science behind training with Fat Gripz
The proof below explains exactly why thick-bar training with Fat Gripz is more effective. When you use Fat Gripz in your normal workout, you're improving the effectiveness of the exercise in three ways.
1. You'll spread the weight more evenly across your body
When you first use Fat Gripz, you may notice that there's less pressure on joints like your wrists, elbows and shoulders. By using a wider grip on the bar, you're actually spreading the weight more evenly across your joints. This helps you:
Decrease the risk of injury - Because the weight's spread evenly, there's less pressure on individual joints like your wrists or elbows. In fact, Fat Gripz can even help to heal existing injuries.
Lift more weight - With Fat Gripz, you won't be limited by pain in your joints or the memory of old training injuries. Instead, they allow your core muscles to lift the weight efficiently and effectively. (What's more, with fewer injuries, you'll be able to train more consistently and make quicker gains.)
2. You'll increase muscle activation
When you use Fat Gripz, you engage your hands and forearms more than with a regular bar. Charles Sherrington, neurophysiologist and Nobel laureate, states that the harder a muscle works, the more its neighboring muscles are activated - amplifying their strength.
So that means by working your hands and forearms harder, you're increasing the muscle activation - and strengthening your upper arms, shoulders, chest and back. That's not all. Just holding the Fat Gripz on the bar is a completely difference experience to holding a regular bar. Your hands, forearms and upper arms are forced to work harder, helping to increase their strength and size.
3. You'll eliminate imbalances
Every exercise you do with Fat Gripz will help to strengthen your grip, hands and forearms. And by eliminating these weak links, you're unlocking bigger strength and muscle increases in your whole body.
Because our bodies are programmed to stay in proportion, the brain actually stops your arms, chest, shoulders and back developing - until your hands and forearms catch up. You can keep on training regardless - but you'll hit a plateau. Regular barbells and dumbbells don't help - in fact, they actually make it worse. They're designed to be easy on the hands and forearms, meaning that the more you workout, the more they're falling behind.
But when you train with Fat Gripz, you'll start to eliminate imbalances - from the very first workout. The first time, you'll notice an intense burning in your forearms - hotter than anything you'll have felt with grippers, wrist rollers or forearm curl and extensions.
Using Fat Gripz: No New Exercises, No More Time In The Gym - Just Effective Training. Don't change the routine - just add Fat Gripz!
With Fat Gripz, you don't need to do any special grip exercises: no grippers, no forearm extensions or forearm curls. You don't need to do any extra sets. You don't even need to spend more time in the gym (unless you like the feeling of your arms burning).
Just put them on your bars and workout like normal. You'll feel the difference immediately. With Fat Gripz, you're doing functional grip training. You're improving your grip at the same time as bench pressing, overhead pressing, deadlifting, rowing - making these exercises massively more effective.
The perfect fit for barbells, dumbbells, pull-up bars and cable attachments
Fat Gripz are 2.25" (5.5 cm) thick when closed. That's over twice as thick as most Olympic bars. Without Fat Gripz, standard bars just feel like toothpicks.
Fat Gripz are 5" (12.5 cm) long. That's big enough to fit your hands, and small enough to fit snugly in virtually every dumbbell (we know - we've literally tested thousands to make sure). We've even beveled the ends of the Fat Gripz to ensure they give a tight fit.
It takes just 10 seconds to add Fat Gripz to your bars!
Fat Gripz are simple to use. Just open the slit and push them over your bar. It takes 10 seconds max:
