Fat Gripz, 2.25" Diameter Blue
GET BIGGER, STRONGER ARMS IN LESS TIME
Increasing the diameter of the bar causes much greater muscle activation throughout the arms leading to bigger, faster gains in muscle size and functional strength.
Military-grade high-density compound that grips the bar like a clamp and doesn’t compress or wear out — even after years of punishment (we guarantee it)
Thick bar training automatically targets your body’s weak links, unlocking massive increases in the strength of your whole body
More than doubles the thickness of standard Olympic bars — at a fraction of the cost of a set of thick bars
No need for new exercises or extra sets — just put on Fat Gripz on your bars and we guarantee you’ll feel the impact immediately
Fat Gripz are being used by the US Special Forces, teams in pro football, pro hockey and top MMA fighters
Fits your dumbbells, barbells and pull-up bars in less than 10 seconds — then doesn’t budge till you want to take it off
Bevelled ends ensure they fit almost all dumbbells and barbells quickly and easily

WHY THICK BARS HAVE THAT EFFECT
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 of the hand (just imagine bench pressing with a thick bar compared to a standard skinny bar). It also makes the forearms extensors (the muscles on the top of the forearm) and forearm flexors (the muscles on the bottom) both work similar amounts and so helps avoids imbalances, weaknesses and injury.
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.
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 with a thick pull-up bar.
Thick bars perfectly replicate the natural function of the human hand – lifting heavy, awkward objects.
Thick bars means you are training your grip the whole time and you don't even need to do any extra exercises.
Thick bars are harder to handle so you need to concentrate a lot harder. Some credit this alone with making them significantly stronger.
SHOULD I USE THICK BARS OR FAT GRIPZ
Thick bars are great but they are very expensive and, therefore, quite rare. Also, you can't take them to different gyms easily (unlike Fat Gripz).
Fat Gripz on the other hand, are great value. You can use them at home or in your gym and they fit almost every peice of weight training apparatus.
QUICKLY AND EASILY FIT FAT GRIPZ TO YOUR WEIGHTS
Fat Gripz are made from a high density military grade compound a lot like rubber that can be pulled open and will then snap back and clamp itself round the bar. This will instantly convert dumbbells, barbells and pull-up bars into thick bars (so that you can reclaim your lost size and strength gains).
