Fat Gripz - Ultimate Arm Builder - 1 Pair

Fat Gripz are the Ultimate Arm Builder. Does doubling the thickness of your barbell and dumbbell handles really cause much greater muscle and strength gains? Many top bodybuilders, Special Forces soldiers and professional athletes around the world use FAT GRIPZ because they have experienced the results. Now it's your turn.

  • Fat Gripz are being used by thousands of athletes and military around the world for weight lifting, strength training and powerlifting, 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 (see how below)
  • Fat Gripz fit virtually all barbells, dumbbells, chin-up bars and cable attachments in seconds – making the bar more than twice as thick
  • 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

"If your back and legs can dead-lift 700lb, but your grip ends at 300lbs, your dead-lift is 300 lbs. When it comes to strength, you are only as strong as your weakest link and most strength athletes know that fact all too well."
Will Brink, strength trainer for US SWAT teams

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. 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. 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 mash 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.

"Train with thick bars when training the upper body. Can't add size to your biceps? Try working the forearms!"
Charles Poliquin, world famous Weight Lifting/Strength Training/Powerlifting Coach & trainer of over 400 Olympic athletes, Olympic medalists in 17 different sports and numerous bodybuilders and stars of the NFL and NHL

When you train with thick bars, you're automatically targeting your body's weak links that were literally stopping you increasing in size and strength.

"Invest in a thick bar and do ALL of your barbell exercises with it"
Joe DeFranco, world famous Weight Lifting/Strength Training/Powerlifting Coach and Trainer of NFL football players from ALL 32 NFL teams!

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 1" 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, 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
    Fat Gripz can help reduce pressure on joints like your wrists, elbows and shoulders. 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.

Built to last a lifetime

"They feel/look solid as hell. I think I will die before they do. Could be an heirloom."
Chris Lemky

Fat Gripz are made from a military-grade high-density compound. They grip the bar like a clamp and doesn't compress – even when deadlifting extreme loads. That means they won't wear out – even after years of punishment.

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 (they know – they've literally tested thousands to make sure). They'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:

Fat Gripz fit barbells and dumbbells in seconds
When they're in place, they're rock solid on the bar. They won't budge, slip or compress – so you can focus on your lift. And when you're done, just slip them off.

Feel the difference in your first workout
Anything that promises that you'll feel the difference in the first workout must be BS. You've heard it all before. Nothing – nothing – compares to training with a thick bar. Your arms will feel pumped, your veins will be popping out, and the next day… Let's just say, go easy the first time you use them.

Fat Gripz gets a ton of feedback from people who use Fat Gripz (you can see a fraction of it on this page). Everyone says the same thing:

"No muscle gets let off when you use these, they help seek and destroy every muscle fibre being trained! Everyone has a weakest link that's bringing their training to a halt. Fat Gripz make that weakest link stronger than ever and help maximise gains."
Kevin Raison (strength and conditioning coach, UK)

"Do it – as long as you don't mind not text messaging for a few days after using them."
Jimmy (New Jersey, USA)

Effective in all barbell and dumbbell exercises
Fat Gripz work in every exercise where your hands grip a barbell, dumbbell, pull-up bar or cable attachment. These are just a selection:

    "Stronger grip means more weight and more reps. Particularly noticeable with dumbbell flat and incline bench as well as upright rows."
    John Fellers (PA, USA)
    "I'm a 198lbs with 21" arms. The Fat Gripz hit the bicep as well as forearm great. I believe my grip is getting stronger which is very important when you got 600+ lbs in your hands and over your head."
    Charles Farmer (WABDL 198lb submaster world record holder in the bench press and two-time world champion)
    "Fat Gripz are great. Killed the triceps, which is what we need for a big bench."
    Ron Carroll (LoneStar Barbell Club)
    "My grip now fails last on deadlifts where before it would fail first."
    "My raw deadlift without straps went from about 365 lb for a single to [censored] for a triple. My limiting factor was my grip."
    Daven (Colorado, USA)
    "The Marine Raid branch are doing group sled pulls and farmer's walks with Fat Gripz."
    Commander Chris Edwards, Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Pacific
    "I use them for deadlifts, farmer walks, and pullups/chinups. I get a serious workout in much shorter time, especially when I want to increase grip strength without wearing down other muscles."
    Justin (UT, USA)
    "Fat Gripz are awesome on farmers walks. The grips on my handles are already thick but the grips make them extreme. Separates the men from the boys."
    TyJ (San Diego, USA)

Who They're For: See What The US Special Forces, MMA Fighters And Athletes Are Saying
Fat Gripz deliver real-world results – whether you're a bodybuilder, Olympic lifter, MMA fighter or athlete. By making your strength training more effective – as well as giving you a devastating grip – you'll develop transferable skills for every sport. These are just a few:

    "I love Fat Gripz. They're well worth the investment."
    Chris Grayson (Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu Academy)
    ""I have been working out for 15 years. I was a competitive Olympic weightlifter for 6 of those years. In addition, this is what I do for a living, I am a personal trainer/strength coach. After 4 days off, and no lift today, my arms are bigger than they were at their biggest, 2 years ago right after a workout. And that is in just 4 workouts!"
    Jeremy Jacobs

  • Brian Marshall, Olympic weightlifting champion and member of the Canadian National Olympic Weightlifting Team

You get the idea. It doesn't matter which sport you play – Fat Gripz will help. It doesn't matter whether you're gripping a bat, a club, or a ball – or just the arms of the other guy in the cage.

Fat Gripz Common Questions

But can't I just wrap a towel around the bar?
Good question. A lot of Fat Gripz users started out with a towel or a bit of foam wrapped around the bar. They quickly saw the difference when they progressed to Fat Gripz.

"They are awesome. Been using something similar made with dense foam but your Fat Gripz are incomparably better – rock solid on the bar. I love them – without a doubt the best $39 I've ever spent."
Scott Roberts (UK)

Fat Gripz don't compress - even when you stand them on their end and stick 280 lb on top
It's easy to see why:

  • The military-grade hardened compound in Fat Gripz doesn't compress when you hold them. It doesn't matter if you're curling 60 lb or deadlifting 500 lb. Fat Gripz won't compress – so you're always getting effective thick bar training.
  • They have a vice-like grip on the bar. There's no movement, there's no give, there's no slippage – so you don't need to worry about the towel slipping and dropping the weight. You can just focus on lifting the weight.
  • Fat Gripz are quick to put on and take off your bars. There's no hassle and nothing to tape in place. Just stick them on the bar and lift. (The only thing Fat Gripz won't do is wipe your sweat off afterwards.)

"Have only trained with them a couple times but so much better than wrapping a towel round the bar. I'll most definitely do more thick-bar training now!"
Steve McMinn (Certified Kettlebell Instructor, Vancouver, Canada)

But won't I have to use less weight?
Some people like to temporarily drop the weight as their grip builds up. But that's a good sign – it shows just how much your grip was holding you back. Your grip will quickly build up… and then you'll be stronger than ever.

"Put your ego aside and accept the reduced weights you have to use when employing Fat Gripz. You only need a couple of sets for the pain to tell you it's working!"
Rob Smith (UK)

"You have to check your ego at the door as you have to go down in the amount of weight you can use on some exercises, but it's worth it."
Nathan Ng (Hawaii)

And some people will find that using Fat Gripz lets them lift more – immediately. Because Fat Gripz relieve pressure from your wrist, elbow and shoulder joints, they allow your core muscles to lift the weight efficiently and effectively.

"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 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

But I already do grip and forearm exercises.
Exercises with grippers, forearm extensions and curls are a good start. But with Fat Gripz you're training functional grip strength. You're not just working your forearms in one plane of motion, or just focusing on the grip itself. You're actually strengthening your hands and forearms in the movements where it matters most – when you're lifting.

That's why you can do the same program as normal – just add Fat Gripz and you'll immediately be targeting your grip and forearms as well.

"No muscle gets let off when you use these, they help seek and destroy every muscle fibre being trained! Everyone has a weakest link that's bringing their training to a halt. Fat Gripz make that weakest link stronger than ever and help maximise gains."
Kevin Raison (strength and conditioning coach, UK)
