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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Added Toy We have these at our gym and they are able to be used with some many of our workouts, and its adds a little twist to the normal dumbbell and kettlebell feel. One thing I noticed with using these was just the different feel with the weight being distributed the way it is. Def a must have if looking for a nice good change of weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great training/recuperation tool!! I am lucky enough to train and run my aging adult fitness business out of the space Darkside Athletics calls home. I am so lucky that Kerry Overfelt is always on the cutting edge of how to up your training experience. He added Thompson Fat Bells to our sack of toys and we use them for strength training as well as restorative work from using them as a base to stretch from, compression gut work, muscle/joint blood oxygen flow to tempering strategies. All of these components important for the continued health and overal improvement of strength, stability, and wellness to both my clients and myself! Thank you Donnie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I have had these for a while now and I can not say enough about the functionality of the pieces. The centered mass around the hand is phenomenal. Reduces elbow stress and wrist stress. Great for swings as well. It is a transformer as it can be a dumbbell or a kettle bell. Buy them you will be happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kettlebell Convert As someone who spent a large portion of his formative years in gyms and around strength equipment, I was introduced to kettlebells shortly after Pavel popularized them in the West. Since that time, I have preached, to anyone who would listen, the virtues of the kettlebell, while attempting to distance myself from dumbbell training. With the advent of Donnie Thompson’s Fatbell, the strength world is once again turned on its head! From the moment I heard about this new concept, it just clicked, as most great ideas do after someone else is brilliant enough to bring it to life. The simplicity and brilliance of the Fatbell is evident from the first time you hold one. Dumbbells are often too unwieldy to use for the more active motions achievable by kettlebells, and kettlebells are often awkward to position comfortably and have a steep learning curve associated with getting the most from them. The Fatbell solves these issues by being compact, perfectly balanced, and, most importantly, intuitive. As someone who lifts not for health or for competition, but for the simple pleasure of being strong, I don’t do gimmicks. Rogue’s Thompson Fatbell is not a gimmick. The Fatbell, like the kettlebell, dumbbell, and barbell before it, is the kind of tool that fundamentally changes the lifting game forever. For as long as I can seek to attain strength, I will do so with Fatbells as an integral piece of my training regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barbells are the way to go. I bought these on a reference from a friend and i love them. It is hard to explain but there are so much better and more versital then regular dumbbells. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the Fatbells! I'm glad I invested in this new product! The Fatbells are well built, solid, and sturdy. Very well packaged for delivery. The weight is distributed a bit different than a kettlebell or a dumbbell. They actually feel heavier than what their weight is.
