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 5 out of 5 by from If I Had To Pick One of the items i purchase on Black Friday was the Thompson Fatbells. Based on a friends recommendation, I ordered the first seven pairs. I'm blown away at how versatile they are. The clients i train love them. The only problem i have is not owning all of them. My collection will grow as they are a must have now instead of a want. If i had to pick between dumbells, kettlebells, or fatbells, Thompson would win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New balance I feel like they are so well balanced, supportive, and less strain on my wrists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Super D!!! I own Valley Barbell, a strength training gym. I have other products from Donnie Thompson and these are just as impressive. They feel like they are part of my body. You can do a variety of exercises with more focus on working the muscles correctly with less risk of injury. I would highly recommend the Fat Bells.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I decided to buy these instead of dumbells and do not regret my decision at all! They're believed to reduce the shear on joints and I don't know for a fact that it's the case, but I do know for fact my joints do feel better! Just starting to use them felt a little awkward and I wasn't able to use the same weights I would with dumbells as I would fatigue quicker, but i've been quickly able to build strength back and feel more comfortable with them, plus utilizing them for similar single arm movements you would use KB's for feels more comfortable (to me at least). Definitely going to invest in some heavier bells soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I recently bought a pair of tbe 18’s , even though I honestly thought these bells are overpriced. I received tbe bells promptly and began working them into my routines (boxing workout) and really dig ‘em, I like the way they’re built, I used to use kettlebells but I like these much better than kettlebells, and I plan to order more of these fatbells, in my opinion, they are worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rogue Sturdy and Super Functional This is an awesome piece of equipment. Replaces kettlebells and dumbbells. The weight actually feels heavier than either and much more user friendly. Having clients learn to snatch a Kettlebell is always problematic but these are much easier and achieve the same result in the end, more power and explosiveness. In addition these things are great for endurance style circuits going from swings, to presses, to rows and lunges without ever changing equipment. Great ergonomics and flexible positioning make them a great addition to the gym. Once you get used to them the ideas start flowing. We will be buying more!
