Product Description

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.

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.

Note: *Due to the casting process, cast products may have minor variances in the finish.

A Donnie Thompson Innovation

A 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.

A “Perfect Geometric Shape”
2

A “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.

Quality Construction
3

Quality 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.

Wide Range of Sizes

Wide 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

Variety of Applications

Variety 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.

Fatbells
Literally the only reason I don’t purchase more from Rogue is due to the shipping costs. When other companies offer fairly similar quality along with free shipping it is difficult to justify it. The fat bells are however fantastic pieces equipment.

Best Product In Strength
I’m a high school strength and conditioning coach and when we built our new performance center we purchased 10 sets of FatBells. These are easily the most used and versatile product that I have seen in over 20 years of coaching. They eliminate the need for both DB’s as well as KB’s because you can do every movement with them so it saves space and more importantly money.

Absolutely Superior
I have had a set of FATBELLS for over 4 years and they are consistently the main part of my workouts, I have since discarded all my dumbbells. One additional thing that has not been mentioned is that for any single hand movement if you need to use your other hand for help it is exactly centered on the fatbell, like you are palming a basketball, unlike a dumbbell or kettle bell where it is awkward when you use a second hand to recover or help lift. Both my girlfriend and I love these for their solid feel: they are one thick solid cast iron piece! If you are considering dumbbells, these are far superior and worth the extra money; you will look back and be glad you got these. Fatbells vs. Kettle Bells: Every single handed movement with a kettle bell is better with a fatbell. Double handed swings, alternating swings or any fancy stuff you will need a kettle bell for, I have kept a couple Rogue competition kettle bells around for that. There are endless ways you can use FATBELLS and it is worth modifying exercises to incorporate them. It’s like once you pick one up you get amped and want to just get to it. Also check out my Tower of Power I built for them below in the pictures! Super small footprint for the garage gym that holds sets of the 9lbs through the 53lbs.

I love my fatbells, so much better at building strength safely. I'm a crossfitter and a woman, and I incorporate fatbells in my training in place of dumbbells as much as possible. So much nicer for devils press than dbs
