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.

  • 6Reliable Rogue Shipping

Rogue Thompson Fatbells is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great addition to home gym I really like the Fatbell. It's slightly more ergonomic that my kettlebells and looks cool in the home gym. Solid construction. I plan on buying more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "MUST HAVE" These are a, "must have", for anyone serious about their training. I debated for a long time, about getting them, because they are pricey. However, now that I have them, I'm glad I made the decision to get them. I would not call them an out-and-out replacement for dumbbells. However, if I could only choose one: dumbbells, kettlebells, or fatbells, I would choose fatbells. One of my favorite exercises is stair-climbs, with dumbbells. (I have 2ft wide shoulders, and I weigh almost 300 pds, so I work up to some heavy weights). However, in the heavier weights, the plates always seem to be in the way, either hitting my legs, or hitting the wall or railing. No such problem with the fatbells, because of their compact build. They allow greater range-of-motion with upper-body work. It made a noticeable difference that I could feel, immediately. You know the destabilizing feeling some people get, when going from a machine, to a barbell, (if they've only used machines), and from a barbell to dumbbells, (if they've only used barbells)? It's like that, moving from dumbbells, to these; and that's a good thing. It forces a person to develop coordination, and wrist strength, even for someone like me, who primarily uses dumbbells. The only gripe I have, is, they have an ergo handle, and I prefer a straight grip. I also prefer a handle that is between 1.5" - 1.75" in DIA. However, I know that is personal preference. Some tips: Consider wearing gloves, or wrist-wraps, because they do make contact with the wrists. Give yourself time to get used to them. They feel wobbly and unstable at first; but that is just showing a person where their weakness is, and you'll become a stronger, better, athlete, by forcing yourself to learn how to control that. Note to ROGUE: Please keep upping the weight on these. I intend to get all of them, as I can afford to, and 150 pounders may not be heavy enough. I would like to see them go up to at least 200 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As you would expect from Rogue... The build of the Fatbells themselves is exceptional, not a flaw to be found anywhere. They were encased in solid styrofoam inside the box so they were well protected during shipping. Even the most careless delivery person would have a difficult time damaging them with how well they were packed. As far as the product goes they definitely hold some distinct advantages over traditional dumbbells or kettlebells. I enjoy how compact and balanced they are end to end so a lot of exercises laying on the floor are a lot less cumbersome than you'd find with the other two staples. Also anything with rotation feels incredible. Can they do everything a dumbbell or kettlebell can? No, but they definitely have their place in a well rounded gym. If you already own a set of dumbbells I wouldn't think it would be worth replacing them with these but if you're starting from scratch these may just be the new way to go. I'm loving mine. Thanks Rogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fatbells I ordered 4 pairs of Fatbells and they are great... I saving to buy more in the next couple months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome Was debating on this product for some time. Due to limited size for my gym equipment I decided on these instead of 5-50 lb dumbbells. Best decision ever. Only regret was not purchasing heavier Fatbells. The pumps i get from training with these are amazing. They are extremely versatile. I am surprised these haven't made dumbbells obsolete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick I ordered about 4 items. They came in separate orders but they came very fast. The fatbells are a very nice addition to my dumbbells and Kettlebells. They are great for shrugs and presses. I will have to see what else I can use them for.
