What are Fat Gripz Original?
Fat Gripz / thick bars develop levels of muscle and strength that cannot be duplicated with standard equipment. It is not uncommon for even an experienced lifter to make significant muscle gains in just a few months by switching to thick bars.
Who are Fat Gripz Original for?
t’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 that 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.
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.
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.
Use them for weight lifting, strength training, strongman and powerlifting.
Thick bar training with Fat Gripz immediately targets your body’s weak links.
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.
Side effects and warnings:
A NOTE OF CAUTION: Take extra care when you begin to incorporate thick bar work. Drop the weights down at first. You may not be able to handle your regular weights when you first begin thick bar movements but, don’t worry, your hands and forearms will quickly catch up and you will blow your old max lifts out of the water.
