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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite tools! I bought the fatbells a few weeks ago and they have quickly become one of my favorite unconventional training tools! They fit right in with all my of Onnit tools. Great price and great quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Superb Investment I decided to purchase and try a pair of 53 lb. Thompson Fatbells about a month ago as they looked quite interesting from the pictures and description. These Fatbells are exceptionally well made, finished nicely, so there are no rough edges, and look great as well. Functionally, these Fatbells are fabulous - easy to grip, very well balanced (because of the spherical shape) and really durable - they'll outlast me. I'm going to order the next four sets: 62 llb., 70, 80 and 88 lb. Thompson Fatbells. And they will cost much less than the urethane dumbells. As an example: The 70 lb. Thompson Fatbell set is only 53% of the cost of the urethane dumbell set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fatbells These Fatbells are amazing definitely worth the money!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I've only used these twice, as they arrived this week, but nonetheless, I'm already kinda geeking out about them. I bought a pair of 35s and I've used them in a myriad of ways that just feel better than a dumb bell. Most notably, squat thrusters (my favorite). Feels smooth and offers the ability to seemlessly switch rotations. Good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! I think fatbells are significantly better than dumbbells, better wt. distribution and I also think it is a lot better for your wrists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Review: Still Great After Two Years! Bought a pair of 9s and 13s two years ago, then added pairs of 18s, 26s and 35s. Durable; and extremely safe and easy to use. Can do standard dumbbell, kettlebell and martial arts exercises with them. Easy to do swings, snatches and get ups. Been lifting weights since 1969, and these are the best resistance training devices I've ever purchased. There's a lot of movement wisdom locked inside your body that you haven't discovered yet. Open your mind (and your wallet) and get a pair of fatbells, then let your body teach you some new movements.

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.
