Rogue Thompson Fatbells

The Rogue Thompson Fatbell was co-developed with powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson as a revolutionary new take on the traditional kettlebell. With this design, we’ve made the simple but significant change of re-positioning the handle inside of the bell—set dead center and straight across like a dumbbell handle within an open-ended, cast-iron sphere. The result, as Donnie explains it himself, is a “perfect geometric shape for maximizing optimal performance,” as your hand and the bell essentially act as one. The center mass design allows athletes to improve the efficiency and balance of every swing/press while also reducing common kettlebell safety risks.

With your hand inside the sphere, “every single infinitesimal point on the surface of that sphere is equal distance to the center of your hand.” This dynamic reduces the shearing force on joints and adds more load distribution on muscle and connective tissue.

Rogue Thompson Fatbells are available in many different weight increments and include Rogue’s signature black powder coat finish. The 9LB, 13LB, & 18LB Fatbell feature an additional, second opening on the underside of the sphere for athletes with smaller hands.

What Sets the Rogue Thompson Fatbell Apart:

  • 1A Donnie Thompson Innovation

    For Donnie Thompson, decades of experience as both a champion powerlifter and world renowned trainer went into conceptualizing this new breed of kettlebell. Since his first sketch of a spheroid bell with an internal handle back in 2006, the blueprint was refined and perfected into its current dynamic form. If it meets Donnie’s standards, it’s up to just about anybody’s.

  • 2A “Perfect Geometric Shape”

    The center mass design of the Fatbell allows athletes to improve the efficiency and balance of every swing/press while also reducing common kettlebell safety risks. As Donnie Thompson puts it, this is the “perfect geometric shape for maximizing optimal performance,” as your hand and the bell essentially act as one. “Every single infinitesimal point on the surface of that sphere is equal distance to the center of your hand.” This dynamic reduces the shearing force on joints and adds more load distribution on muscle and connective tissue.

  • 3Quality Construction

    Thompson Fatbells feature a solid, cast-iron construction with a black powdercoat finish and a grip-friendly ergo handle. The exterior design includes both Rogue and Thompson branding, as well as a color-coded stripe around the opening for quick recognition. All bells 26 LB and up have a flat machined base, while the 9LB, 13LB, and 18LB bells are opened-ended on both the top and bottom, providing an alternative option for athletes with smaller hands.

  • 4Wide Range of Sizes

    Whether you want to order a couple sets of Fatbells for your home gym or equip a larger facility with a full arsenal, there is no shortage of options [see the size chart below or within the order menu]. Bear in mind that along with the diameter of the bell itself, the diameter of the internal Ergo Handle also changes depending on the weight of the Fatbell:
    9-18 LB Bells = 32mm diameter handle
    26-88 LB Bells = 37mm diameter handle
    97LB+ Bells = 40mm diameter handle

  • 5Variety of Applications

    As a hybrid of sorts between a traditional kettlebell and dumbbell, there are countless ways to utilize Thompson Fatbells and incorporate them into your routine; from presses, swings, and lunges to snatches, cleans, rows, and more.

Rogue Thompson Fatbells is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Martial Arts and Man Makers Items reviewed: pair of 9-lb fatbells and pair of 13-lb fatbells. The fatbells were delivered quickly by Rogue. They are outstanding for practicing martial arts and boxing strikes, much more balanced and sleek than using dumbbells or kettlebells. Very stable for burpees and man maker conditioning drills. Excellent build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love those Fatbells!!!!!!!!! I have been intrigued by the Thompson Fatbells since I first saw them on your website. I needed "a shot in the arm" for my dumbell workouts and these Thompsons gave me that. I bought my sets (9,18,35,44 and 62lbs) of Fatbells during the Black Friday weekend and love them! I use the 62 bell for swings and squats and the rest for bench and shoulder work in conjunction with my dumbells. Although you can only get one hand in the bell, you can also grip the side for more stability. Great innovation Mr. Thompson!!!!!!!! Can't say enough good things about them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product!!! I just received my order of four sets of the Thompson Fatbells. The 18lb.; 26lb; 35lb and the 44lb. All are sets of two's and my friends have all tested them out before I could and they are jealous now. LoL! I saved up and bought them to help me lose fat and regain the body that I'm capable of. I'm a 48 year old minister of the Gospel that works with grown men who are addicted to life controlling substances. I'm able to teach them how to succeed in every way except in the realm of health and shape. I believe that these will get me going in that area. I wish you had a workout regiment that goes with these but I already have so many of those by other professionals. I'm asthmatic and only one side of my lungs work so I have to do it slower but I can get it done. Usually by 45 minutes I am wiped out. I am very happy to have these finally!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Giant I've been using my 106 lb bells for some time now, and I love them. I'm doing swings with a single bell, and I can clean and press both of them. I see some folks didn't find my last review helpful. I'm sorry to see that. This product is not meant to replace the kettlebell, or the dumbbell. Lift some serious weights, and figure that out. The weight of the fat bell distributes differently. It feels heavier. I've found them to be a great training aid, and I'm thinking about going to a heavier set. A helpful hint; if you feel like you're going to fail; drop them and let them go. You won't hurt your forearm or wrist. I've pressed them to failure. I've lunged them to failure. I've cleaned and pressed them to failure. instinct helps your training. Go after it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I need in one package First. I've bought weights, and kettle bells from other companies. Typically when I opened the packages the things were busted up, the powder coat and enamel were chipped due to improper packaging. Not the fat bells. They came very well packaged with no chance of damage. I bought a set of the 106 LBS bells, and they actually feel heavier than a 110 pound dumbbell in my hand because of the way the weight distributes itself when you pick it up. So far I've used the fat bells for chest presses, Static hangs from a pull up bar, and walking lunges. I'm really happy with the product, and I recommend them to any strength athlete who wants to throw something new into the routine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, could be better It's pretty well though out. Comfortable grip. Compact, so good for a number of exercises with weight close to body. If there were openings at both the top AND the bottom, it could be swung with two hands like a kettlebell. Which would be very cool as I could replace both dumbbells and kettlebells.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan! ☹️ Ok Guys, here's my thoughts on the Thompson Fatbells. To start I'm a huge fan of Rogue in fact I've built my garage gym around mostly Rogue equipment. I've received several sizes in the Fatbells, my initial impression was wow very nicely done as in fit and finish Rogue does it right! After un-boxing I realized my initial thought of these maybe replacing Dumbbells was incorrect. Some exercises u might be able to get away with it but excercises like flat bench, incline bench, decline bench which I had hoped these would be great for wasn't the case, as you all my know when pushing your last few reps with these types of excercises you typically loose the weights to the floor with these Fatbells you can't do that due to your hand being in the Fatbells in the higher weights you would pretty much break your wrist. Also noted during use they seem to be much heavier then their counterpart dumbbell, meaning a 70lb Fatbells feels more like an 85lb dumbbell not sure why this is but trust me it is! As for Kettle bell movements, Fatbells do not replace Kettle bells! An example would be your single arm swing, with a KB it feels natural and normal with the Fatbells the movement is uncomfortable and awkward, your wrist hits the sides as you move through the motion and because your hand is submerged in the Fatbell you are required the squat a lot lower so the bell can enter between your legs to stop the downward movement and start the upward movement, your wrist contacts your groin, very weird! I could go on and on and on why these don't work, I'm sure there's a few exercises that would be fine but then again so would using a DB or KB for that same excercises. At the end of the day these don't replace either KB's or DB's and don't provide a better movement for areas where they can be used so with that being said they aren't worth adding to our gym, Rogue took these back without issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Mine!!! I received mine yesterday and worked out with them last night. I have been having elbow problems which made it a little difficult to use my original kettle bells. i was able to use these with no problem. They are awesome and I plan to purchase more.
