Thick Bar Training - share your thoughts and experience
Anyone here tried thick bar training ?
I came across a product called Fat Gripz. It turns 1-inch diameter bars into 2-inch diameter bars
It seems I have a very weak grip. In the Romanian Deadlift, I can lift 172 lbs without the Fat Gripz but it plummets to 102 lbs with Fat Gripz.
In the Dips, I don't feel pain anymore in my right wrist when doing it with Fat Gripz. I was also able to do more reps and felt stronger in the dip when using Fat Gripz
I haven't tried it with Pull Ups yet coz the pull up bar in the gym has a diameter less than 1 inch. Fat Gripz cannot clamp on it firmly
The Fat Gripz has been with me for about a week now. I will try it for about 6 months then see if there are improvements in my grip and forearm development
I bought Fat Gripz in OLX since there are no authorized retailers/distributors of Fat Gripz here in the Philippines.
There are other similar products like:
