What are Fat Gripz
Fat Gripz are the new worldwide training phenomenon that help add muscle and strength (especially big arms) to your body in record time. They have been described as “the biggest thing to happen to weight training in the last decade” Using a thicker diameter bar automatically targets your body’s weak links, which helps you to unlock massive increases in the strength of your whole body.
How do they work?
In years past before bodybuilding became popular culture, all gym equipment was hand made by enthusiasts in their workshops or back sheds. A perfect example is Joe Gold who began making muscle building equipment in the 60’s and filled his famous Gold’s gym with these creations. However the standard bar that was readily available at the time, was quite a lot thicker than the bars that are custom machined in factories today. As time has passed there has been an emphasis on ergonomics, but as gym equipment became more ergonomic, including reducing the size of the bars. We unknowingly caused less activation of certain muscles especially those required for grip strength.
As we grip a bar that is slightly thicker than we are used to, it causes us to focus much harder on our grip. Which in turn cause more muscle activation in the forearms, then into the upper arms, into the shoulders and so on depending on the muscle you are working. Although commonly known as “The ultimate arm builder” Fat Gripz are an amazing tool that can be used to gain size, strength and break plateaus in practically any muscle group.
