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.

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.

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

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.

4

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

5

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.

Good quality, pointless product
I used these at a gym while traveling. From what I gather, they found a way to make a more expensive, less versatile non-adjustable Powerblock?

A little more brittle than I thought they'd be
I originally loved the concept of these. Loved the idea of combining KBs and DBs. Just disappointed at how brittle the top edges are, a lot of chipping paint. I think I'd still prefer KBs and DBs for there price points and functionality in comparison.

Surprised
Bought them for help with shoulder injury but my wife ended up loving them. She has a small frame and finds dumbbells too clumsy. For this reason she finds the fatbells great. Only downside, they are expensive but you get what you pay for. Great quality and a product you’ll want to use.

Amazing addition to any home gym.
I have dumbbells and kettlebells. The fatbell is a hybrid which leans towards dumbbells in terms of function and feel. Does it cancel out dumbbells? Not for me, I enjoy variety in my workouts. The weight distribution is key and another distinct feature which makes these well worth the price.

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.

Who needs Dumbbells
This things are fantastic, I bought a pair of 26lbs to try them out and I been using them daily; they are fairly versatile and I can't believe how different they feel. If you are on the fence about getting a fatbell, I would say pull the trigger as is a worthy investment, plus being a rogue product your new fatbell will be guaranteed to outlive you.

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.
