Yes. Using a thick handled bar is one of the best things you can do to build size and strength virtually incomprehensible to people who use regular bars. Keep in mind that you must still follow a sound training routine and ensure you are getting the proper nutrition. You should try and eat as natural and organic as possible so that your body will function at its best. Foods like organic grass fed beef and  organic whey protein are highly anabolic and will supply your body with the nutrients and protein necessary for muscle and strength gains.

Thick bars are simply barbells, dumbbells and pull-up bars with a thicker diameter handle. A standard barbell, dumbbell, or chin-up bar typically has a handle with a diameter of about 1 inch. A thick bar will often have a diameter of more like 2.5 inches (some look more like truck axles) and if you've ever used you will know that it feels completely different.

Using a thick bar means MORE MUSCLE AND STRENGTH on your body. Thick bar training produces much bigger strength and muscle gains compared to standard training equipment…. and many people find them much easier on their joints too. Thick Bars are not new. Strongmen, champion powerlifters and pro athletes have been using them for decades.

Thick Bars (and Fat Gripz) work for many reasons including:

  • Increased muscle activation - thicker handles stimulate much more muscle activation in the hands and forearms and in the upper arms and whole upper body. More muscle activation means much bigger muscle and strength gains.
  • "Unlocking" muscle gains - thick bars make your hands, fingers and forearms so much stronger that your body can finally stop "holding back" the strength and muscle gains in your uppers arms, back and chest.
  • Complete training - thick bar training automatically trains your hands, fingers and forearms at all angles. If you are bench pressing, the thick bar will train your hands and forearms in a completely different way than if you are doing chin ups on a thick bar.
  • Natural movement - thick bars perfectly replicate the natural function of the human hand - lifting heavy, awkward objects.
  • Automatic training - thick bars means you are training your grip the whole time and you don't even need to do any extra exercises.
  • Concentration - thick bars are harder to handle so you need to concentrate a lot harder to lift the weight. Some credit this alone with making them significantly stronger.
  • Less imbalances and injuries - thick bars shift the stress off the joints and onto the muscles because a thick bar spreads the weight over a larger area.

Yes! Of course, there is an inherent risk involved in using all exercise equipment but FAT GRIPZ™ have been designed with extreme care to ensure that they are as safe as possible. They also come with clear and detailed instructions for use which will help you to have a very safe and highly effective training experience.

Many gyms are used by hundreds or thousands of people and the equipment is rarely, if ever, hygienically cleaned. FAT GRIPZ™ will help you to avoid the unseen hygiene nightmare which may be lurking in your gym.

We have received feedback from many people that Fat Gripz have indeed helped, here is one such example from our Facebook page (Facebook.com/FATGRIPZ):

.

Fat Gripz are made from an ultra tough military-grade compound like rubber (you might be surprised at the weight and quality of them when you open the box). They have a slit down one side which allows them to be pulled open and slid easily onto the bar and then close tightly around it. They will not wear-out or compress and they are designed to be rock solid on the bar as if they re a part of it.

No. The design and manufacture of Fat Gripz are the result of years of extensive testing and refinement by some of the best strength coaches in the world.
