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, and 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 26LB 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:
    9LB - 18LB Bells = 32MM diameter handle
    26LB - 88LB Bells = 37MM diameter handle
    97+LB 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the best. I just got my 53lb Fatbell in today. Even pulling it out of the box I could feel the difference. This is going to be a game changer in my workouts. I will edit this review after I have spent some time using these things, but man oh man, even just pulling it out of the box felt amazing in my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Direct connection to the weight. These are the best. I use them in my kettlebells and dumbbell workouts with great results. These are the future of workout equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 35 and 44lb Fatbells I got a pair of 35 and 44 lb Fatbells and I can honestly say I like them better than I thought I would. They are very durable and versatile. These things are great for accessory work to supplement my big 3 lifts. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ergonomically well balanced. A pair of 26 pound fat bells arrived today. First thing I noticed is how much heavier they feel compared to a rubber hex dumbell like the ones at my gym. These are solid. I was impressed at how ergonomically better they felt in my hands compared to a similar cast iron dumbell. I will definitely buy more in the future. They are not cheap by any means, but you get what you pay for. I’m sure they will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes embracing the suck to the next level I’ve wanted to buy these as soon as I saw them. I got a couple light pairs for prehab / accessory type stuff. I’ve known and competed with Donnie for years and knew they’d be awesome because he put his name on them. They have definitely exceeded my expectations. If you want to take your training to the next leve get you some “Thompson FatBells” from Rogue. They change the angle of the dangle and force you to use muscles you never knew you had because of the way the muscles, tendons, and connective tissue is loaded. But, don’t take my word for it try them for yourself. I would recommend checking your ego in the parking lot and getting lighter ones to start. Just as a reference I’ve totaled elite @ 275 and have found plenty of ways to punish myself with a pair of 13lb and 18lb. Support Donnie and his FatBells by purchasing from Rouge. After all it was his vision and research that created the tool. You can tell a lot about a person by where and whom they purchase their gear. Just from my perspective if I bought from someone else I’d be stealing from Donnie. Not a sermon, just a thought
