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 Gains I stopped going to my gym in July once coronavirus got really bad around here. I knew I had to have something more than just bodyweight to keep the gains going, so I purchased 2 of these and 2 53 pounders as well. This is all I need... everything I did at the gym I'm able to do with these bad boys at home. Even when the pandemic is done I may still workout at home with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to gym I already have dumbbells and kettle bells and use both consistently. I purchased a pair of the 44lb fat bells to start. They are an excellent hybrid of the two. They are versatile and can be incorporated in to most of my workouts. They allow for a greater range of motion on pressing exercises (seated and bench). They have more control than a conventional kettle bell. While they are not a must have for a home gym they will compliment a gym nicely. I have been lifting for 25 years or so and am always looking in to ways to keep my work outs fresh. These help out. Only downside is cost, but that can be said about most home gym equipment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Build Quality Unique design and superb build quality make these easy to recommend. Not your everyday dumbbells, and as a guy who's been weight training for 20+ years I've used a lot of different gear. The shape minimizes torsional forces, which is perfect if you're not working with a spotter. As with any larger dumbbell, I suggest a bit of extra floor padding around the bench, to make sure nothing gets dinged when the weights are set down at the end of a set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent investment!!! Thank you for creating and developing this innovative product. I have seen immediate results using my bells, and I am absolutely satisfied. This is a quality product. Also, excellent customer service, response to my inquiry was immediate resulting in on time delivery. Thank you ROGUE FITNESS, looking forward to more purchases.
