Gain strong and muscular physique with the StrongGear Fat Bar

Our Fat Bar enables you to gain some extra muscle thickness. There have been several studies in the past that confirm our statement. For example, a study (1992), published in The International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, compared three different bars, depending on diameter of their grip and how they influence the muscles of the arms. 

- They found out that the smallest grip diameter causes the smallest muscular activity on the forearms at the negative stage of the exercise according to the EMG (electromyography, an electrical activity check).

- On the other side the widest diameter of the handle caused the highest muscle engagement activity on the forearms compared to the other two sizes of the grip diameter. The study included both people with no experience with such type of training and lifters who performed similar activity more often.

This study supports the use of Fat Bar to activate more muscle fibres in the forearm. The main output of this study is that you will be able to use more muscles when using a larger diameter bar. So, you get more muscles and you get stronger. Thanks to stronger forearms you will be able to lift more weight in other exercises such as deadlift, bench press, overhead press, and more. This will allow you to exercise more intensely and get even more results.

Against Stereotype with Fat Bar

Training with the StrongGear Fat Bar will improve your strength and grip endurance. You will become stronger in everyday situations and improve your performance not just in deadlifts. For the best results, the fat bar should be used together with common bars. Diversity is very important in your training. If you really want to achieve the best outcomes, then it's not good to do the same every day. Therefore, the fat bar is an ideal „complement“ to your training making you stronger and injury-free. Moreover, this bar makes training fun!

Fat bar

Chromed surface

The polished-chrome grip provides an exclusive design and protects the bar against corrosion and scratching.

Fat bar

Stylish caps

The caps show the exact bar weight and the diamater. This great design addition therefore informs your clients about how much weight they are actually lifting.

Fat bar

Precise knurling

Fixed bar, comfortable and stable in your hands. The knurling continues up to the sleeves, so you can grasp the bar wherever you want, and your grip is always firm.

Load capacity of 400 kg

Thanks to the highest quality steel our bar has the load capacity of 400 kg. The width of the grip makes this almost an unliftable weight! The bar also does not spring much so it will not bend during your training.

Grip-diameter 50 mm

With such a wide grip it is ideal for both beginners who need to improve their grip as well as for advanced athletes who like the challenge and to improve their performance on all fronts.

Olympic diameter of sleeves

With 50 mm diameter you can load all standard Olympic plates. You do not have to buy any new or special plates for this type of diameter.

The 2 ball bearings

They allow rotation of the sleeves even if heavily loaded so you do not damage your wrists.

Advantages of training with our Fat Bar

Each one of us has one or more limitations in strength sports. One of the most common weaknesses is the insufficient strength of the fingers, wrists and forearms. A way how to improve this deficit is using the Fat Bar. It has a greater diameter than IPF and IWF Olympic barbells. You will see how quickly your performance goes up.

  1. Full body strengthening: Fat Bar improves your grip and forearm endurance which helps you to lift more not just in the deadlift.
  2. Better in other sports: By strengthening your forearms and palms you will be able to use it in combat-sports where you need to grab and fight with your opponent. It is also quite likely that you will improve in catching, for example, basketball or soccer ball.
  3. Injury prevention: Strengthening of fingers, wrists and forearms will result in reduced accident rate. So, you can train harder than before.
