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.

Rogue Thompson Fatbells is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 100.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOPS ARE KIDDIN EVERY GYM AND HOUSEHOLD SHOULD OWN INCREDIBLE INVENTIVE FATBELLS. YOU CAN DO MORE DIFFERENT AND FLEXIBLE POSITIONS BETTER THAN KETTLEBELLS OR DUMBELLS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need these!!! These weights are awesome. If you do not own any kettlebells or and dumbbells and it’s for a home gym, you would be silly to not buy these. I can do every exercise I normally can with dumbbell using these fat bells and any one handed kettlebell swings can also be done (and if you think your grip is hard core try doing two handed swings by holding the rim....good luck!). These weights are perfect for a home gym, extremely versatile, extremely well made (the paint has already started to chip slightly but so would your kettlebells or dumbbells if you use them) and you look like a total badass with cannon balls on your hands when your working out. I’ll definitely be repainting mine purple to look like Bomberman’s hands! Don’t be silly, buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I bought this a couple weeks ago and MAN what a difference! I absolutely prefer these than dumbells, much more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent handle First time using them. I prefer these instead of dumbbells. It was a lot easier on my wrist . Gym courtesy of Shark City Barbell

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handle Inconsistencies I ordered a pair of 35’s and while one came flawless, the other had good sized divots along the underside of the handle. Rogue was nice enough to send a replacement, but it was even worse along one end of the handle near the welds. Love the concept and the feel of the weights, just frustrating to pay a premium for inconsistent quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great construction and value Really well built. No sharp edges and all contours in the right place. Just a great product. I prefer over dumbbells as you feel closer to the weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall I love it! I am a gymnastics trainer and love the grip option of this product. I actually want to buy more but my little gymnasts need 5-6 pounders,, would love if Rogue would make some for the little guys! I absolutely love the design and concept way to go Rogue and the creator of this invention! My niece who is a shot-putter also bought one for training and is loving it. Thanks
