Thompson Fat Pad


Designed by Donnie Thompson

The Thompson Fat Pad by Rogue is the proper bench pad to maximize power and minimize injury.

Donnie Thompson (checkout his bio below!) invested seven years of research in creating the Fat Pad.


  • Promote Scapular movement
  • Eliminate Shoulder Hangover
  • Optimizes Back and Upper body Positioning
  • Increases mechanic leverages

Benefits of the additional thickness and width:

  • Scapular movement is uninhibited and eliminates AC tears
  • Very little to NO Translational loading
  • Common Pec Tweaks are a thing of the past!
  • Angry Humeral wear on the bicep tendon and soft tissue GONE!

The Thompson Fat Pad is designed to bolt onto any Rogue Flat Bench.  It has a plywood bottom that enables it to be mounted to most other benches as well. Drilling and additional hardware may be required if you are mounting to a non Rogue product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted! Bought this for my Dad this Father’s Day. He loves it! He wishes he had it years ago and said it is saving his shoulders. A must buy, especially for people with home gyms!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great thick Pad with Awesome Support I keep hurting my shoulder atleast once per year, and it takes while for to recover. While hurt, I can only do close grip bench. Now that I have purchased the Fat Pad, I can bench wide again without any discomfort in my shoulder. The pad is also firm and sticky, so allows one to be in the most optimum position to bench heavy weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all of my expectations! I received the Thompson Fat Pad as a Christmas gift, and it is a great addition to my gym equipment. The pad is very firm and keeps me from slipping when I bench press.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoulder Saver Over the past few years there have been times when I thought my barbell benching days were behind me. This pad has proved me wrong. Rock-solid, stable, and so supportive, it has eliminated the shoulder pain benching would always produce. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for This is an outstanding product. It’s very sturdy, and versatile - I had no trouble mounting it to my (non-Rogue) bench. It has helped me tremendously with some issues I was having related to shoulder injury and poor shoulder mobility. I highly recommend it for any lifters with those sorts of issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Admittedly, due to budget constraints, I had a "homemade" fat pad for awhile. This is so superior, I am now over the top happy. The dimensions relieve shoulder stress. My recommendation is just get one. No more debate, thinking about it, or hesitating. Get one. You will be glad you did.
