Thompson Fat Pad
Designed by Donnie Thompson

Manufactured in the USA, the Thompson Fat Pad™ by Rogue is the proper bench pad to maximize power and minimize injury. This oversized bench pad measures 50” L x 14.5” W x 4.5” H (about twice the thickness and 2.5” wider than a standard pad), and is designed to bolt onto any flat Rogue weight bench. It also includes 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.

Powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson (checkout his bio below!) invested seven years of research into creating the Fat Pad™, with each design choice offering a new slate of potential benefits to the lifter . . .

Key Benefits of the Thompson Fat Pad's Added Thickness & Width:

  • Promote Scapular Movement - uninhibited movement also helps to eliminate AC tears
  • Eliminate Shoulder Hangover
  • Optimize Back and Upper Body Positioning
  • Increase Mechanic Leverages
  • 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 Fat Pad has been a 5-star product for years based on Rogue customer reviews (viewable below). It’s available here with a black “grabber’ vinyl cover.

Get this pad!
Get rid of your puny pad and switch to this one. Helps keeping scaps better stabilized and safer for the pecs especially under heavier loads. There are many copies of this pad but the OG is by far the best!

Heavy and solid
Ive had the fat pad for a few months now and honestly its amazing. The grippy vinyl is amazing and the padding on it as well. I mounted this to a rogue monster 2.0 frame bench and its the best, heaviest, and sturdiest bench ever made. The wider pad also supports my shoulders a lot more. It was weird at first but after a sessions it felt normal. Not only that but its so aesthetically pleasing to look at with the tripod design. Getting the comp pad next! 10/10 recommend

Great Service / Pad
I bought this recently and just came in the other day. I was stoked to mount it to my bench but before I did I inspected it and saw there was some internal damage in the pad. I had a worry it was going to spread through the pad in the coming weeks and months. The damage had been done from the shipping company. The box had holes and hits. I contacted rogue and showed them the minor damage. They instantly gave me an option to exchange it. The pad itself is heavy, solid, and really good quality can’t wait to test it out when it arrives.

Best accessory for bigger folks
Bought the TFP for a bench from another company. The stock pad was just meh. Didn't know how much of a difference the back pad made until I installed the TFP. More stability and less shoulder pain.
