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 Better than DBs, mostly better or as good as KBs Overall these are great. But the comparison to dumbbells and kettlebells is important as they are better at somethings and less good at others. FYI I have been using a single 70lb/32kg bell. Things they are better than kettlebells (KB) and dumbells (DB) 1. One arm snatch: I really love the fatbell for this. The weight distribution is great. No banging on the wrist like KB or rotational challenges from the DB. Things that they are just as good as DB or KB 2. One arm swings, cleans, overhead press, floor press, rows: The fact that your wrist can be at a natural angle and the weight distribution make this good and rotating wrist in movement is all good. On the cleans you don't get the thing where the KB goes around your wrist at the top of the clean, but that's ok for me. Things a KB is better at 3. One arm dead-lift. As you don't have the handle you have to be careful that this does not bang you between the legs with the fatbell 4. Can't do two handed movements - e.g., swings with this (this is the big one) Things DBs are better 5. Two Fatbells is going to cost more than two DBs 6. DB could be rubbery and easier to drop on the floor

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile but may need sanding Bought it for the at home workouts. It definitely works as advertised. Can do a lot with it too. Only bummed cause the opening edge where you insert your hand is pretty rough. Roughs up your wrist a lot, sometimes cuts. My neighbor bought these at the same time but doesn’t have that problem. I’m just unlucky. Going to sand it and/or just throw a bunch of tape on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice I really like the feel of them. But have a feeling they were not painted well seeing the paint all chipped off so quick.
