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™.

Benefits:

  • 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 4 out of 5 by from Rogue fat pad I love the bench pad and love Donnie and his innovative ideas. I love the product its extremely high quality and well made. I do not appreciate a product that’s close to $200 with shipping to not include the bolts that fit the product. Not only that you don’t even list what size bolt or thread the bolt pattern has ANYWHERE and especially not within the package itself. So after stripping one of the T nuts with the incorrect bolt it took me another couple days of drilling and prying to free the original T nut and replace it with a new one from Home Depot and not destroy the wood too bad. I also noticed that this was already a complaint and still has not been addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from But it if you have bad shoulders. It’s worth it. My shoulders are pretty rough and they don’t hurt nearly as much when using this pad. Easy install. Bonus is my bench numbers are going up again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great improvement to my bench Hesitant about the cost, until I used it. What a huge increase in stability and actually comfort during bench press. Once again the best gear available is made in OH IO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I got this pad a couple of days ago. I must say that this pad changed the whole things about my benching. I used to be a bit awkward benching because my right shoulder hurt more than I could stand. Not so many trainees have an access to this pad here in Japan, so I feel a little proud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it The only thing I regret about buying this is not buying one a long time ago! I do not want to bench on anything else. Amazing and worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real bench pad I bought this for heavy dumbells. Narrow bench pads require to much balance killing your reps. I will buy another one. Very high quality!! I fabricated a proper size frame for this pad. MCW Certified Welding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad. What I expected. I purchased this for my home gym. I do enjoy it, however I had to adjust my leverages due to the bench being higher. I would recommend that.
