5. What Are Thick Bars?
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.

6. What's So Special About Thick Bars?
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.

7. Why Does Using A Thick Bar Have That Effect?
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.

8. Should I Use Fat Gripz Or Thick Bars?
Thick bars are great but they are very expensive and, therefore, quite rare (a thick bar may cost $300 - $800 and a set of thick-handled dumbbells may cost $10,000 - $25,000). Also, you can't take them to different gyms easily and thick chin-up bars and thick-handled exercise machines are almost non-existent.

9. What Will YOU Get From Using Fat Gripz?

More muscle. More strength. Fast. It's as simple as that. Most people who train with Fat Gripz find that their arms size and strength (in particular) increases dramatically and, as a result, their whole upper body grows. You will literally feel them working the very first time you use them.

Fat Gripz are super high quality, fully portable and will give you the benefits of a gym full of thick bars (no matter where you train) at a fraction of the cost.

Switching to Fat Gripz might be the single biggest difference you can make to your muscle size and strength today.

10. What Are Fat Gripz Made Of And How Do I Use Them?
Fat Gripz are made from an ultra tough military-grade compound which is a lot 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.

The design, manufacture and materials used to make Fat Gripz have been tested and tweaked over and over until they were perfect for maximum effectiveness, usability, durability and safety. When you open the box you might be quite amazed by the quality, weight and strength of Fat Gripz. When you receive your pair, you'll see what we mean!

20. Will they help with size and strength?
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 natural whey or organic whey protein are highly anabolic and will supply your body with the nutrients and protein necessary for muscle and strength gains.

21. What is the 100% FAT GRIPZ™ guarantee?
We believe in the effectiveness of FAT GRIPZ™ so deeply that we can offer you a 100% money-back guarantee*.

Charles Poliquin

“At the Poliquin Strength Institute and in all gyms I have consulted for, thick handle dumbbells are a staple purchase. However, they are not cheap by any means and, of course, you can only find them in top notch training centers. But there is an alternative: FAT GRIPZ. They are tough as hell and fit on any regular weight training equipment better than anything else I have ever seen. Now you have no excuses for sporting your weak eleven-teen inch arms! To get your own pair go to fatgripz.com”

Krista Schaus

“In the space of just 3 weeks (after a lifetime of training!) I added ¾ inch to my arm measurement using Fat Gripz! I am literally blown away.”

- Krista Schaus, One of Canada's top 20 Powerlifters and natural bodybuilding champion

They are killer. The sceptical guys at work did a workout with me, and we tried them on all sorts of movements; the obvious ones like chins, but also some presses and arm work. They're not skeptical anymore. I've always known my grip strength limited me-i think these will help me massively, and of course, the many athletes of mine who definately need them.”

- Dr. Jeremy Sheppard, Australian Institute of Sport

 “FAT GRIPZ ARE INSANE!! I just finished my 1st workout with them and I am amazed; seriously. I train forearms/grip strength every arm day and so I was skeptical as to how hard it would really be to use these on bar/ dumbell applications. It KICKED my --- ! I decided before I got them that I wasn’t going to just use them on arm day so today happened to be delts & I decided to use them on dumbell snatches and pushpresses and it crippled my forearms while the movements punished my delts! I can see now Im going to wear these out because I plan to use them on at least two different muscle groups each week(one of which being arms of course) so Im planning on ordering another pair for backup asap. Thanks for a great product and speedy delivery!”

- Steve Miller, NASM-CPT Virginia beach

“...but when I finished my sets my forearms looked twice their normal size...”

- Colin Benison, UK


Jason Ferrugia
“These little suckers instantly turn any standard bar or dumbbell into a fat bar. This increases your grip strength and stimulates arm growth beyond what a normal bar or dumbbell can. They easily slip on an off and are made of extremely high quality, heavy duty rubber which is hard as a rock and doesn’t wear out or compress. These would make a great stocking stuffer for the meathead on your list.”

- Jason Ferruggia,
New Jersey,
Chief Training Adviser To Men's Fitness Magazine, Strength & Conditioning Specialist

“Fat Gripz are easily the best thick grip implement I have used and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to improve their strength or want to add thickness to their forearms. The benefits make the cost of them absolutely minimal. If you are serious about strength training then thick grip work is a simple way to make fast improvements; you can't afford not to get them.”

- Ben Carpenter, UK

“I have had some severe elbow pain for over 8 months and have been unable to perform any
pressing exercises for approximately 2 months. I have been to multiple treatments of Active Release therapy as well as Acupressure and still feel pain. I had to completely change my routine until yesterday when I tried someone’s Fat Gripz in the gym. It alleviated a huge amount of pain and I was able to push 225lbs all the way up to 315lbs with no pain.”

- Rishi Muchalla

- Ralf Sypesteyn, Netherlands
