Subj: Develop stronger hands, wrists, forearms and upper arms with “Fat Gripz”.
Old School bodybuilders and strongmen trained with thick bars to build impressive upper body muscles and raw strength.
Thick bar training builds strong, dense muscle because it puts more muscle fibers under tension compared to conventional bars.
Thick bar training is a lost art, and these days is reserved for elite athletes, special forces, law enforcement, and serious strength competitors.
The reason being is that most gyms don’t provide thick bars for their members. Unless you join a hard-core powerlifting gym, you’re out of luck.

How Do Fat Gripz Work
How do Fat Gripz Work?
My Experience with Fat Gripz
I heard about Fat Gripz a few years ago on a fitness blog. I liked the idea and thought they would work but never bought them.
It wasn’t until I went to a gym out of town that I used Fat Gripz.
They were laying on the floor by the dumbbell rack so I slapped them on a barbell and did some curls.
My arms ignited.
My arm muscles pumped up after one set. Veins popped out of my arms and shoulders. My forearms had a deep burn that I’ve never felt before. I did a few more sets and my arms felt like they might burst.
After it was all over my arms were sore for several days. My arms can take a beating and recover quickly.
When I still felt soreness in my biceps and forearms on day three, I was sold.
I bought a set of Fat Gripz on Amazon and keep them in my gym bag.
