You heard it here first... fat is making a comeback. Skinny jeans, skinny milk... they're all on the way out. So what does this mean for your lifting? It means it's time to set aside that skinny barbell every once in a while and step out with something with bigger curves, something you can really wrap your hands around. With a 43.8mm grip and custom textured powder-coat, the AlphaFit Fat Barbell (or Axle) is a bar that will do what your skinny barbell can't - increase your grip strength by working out your hands and wrists.
Standard barbells do little to strengthen your hands and wrists unless you are lifting heavy loads. Load your Fat Bar up with any of our bumper plates and try out all of your favourite lifts for a completely different challenge. In addition to improving your grip strength, the Fat Barbell can improve overall lifting performance by forcing the athlete to focus on key points of performance such as speed, control and positioning. The Fat Barbell can also increase athlete capacity in other areas such as gymnastic bar and ring work. When using the Fat Bar we recommend you secure your bumper plates with Lock-Jaw Collars.
Traditionally for the strongmen, the popularity of the Fat Bar is increasing and popping up in boxes and competitions around the country. Training with the Fat Barbell has excellent transferable benefits for weightlifters, functional fitness athletes, climbers and athletes who are completing gymnastic style training on the bars or rings.

Great for grip strengthBy: Rory Boyden - Trainer and Co-Owner of CrossFi on 30 January 2019The AlphaFit Fat Bar is great for grip strength, providing variety in your cleans, jerks and lunges. It also looks awesome in the front rack and makes a sick sound when you drop it from overhead. The AlphaFit Fat Bar seems to retain chalk best out of any fat bar I have tried, making for a less slippery to hold.
