Product Description

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.

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.

1

A 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.

2

A “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.

3

Quality 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.

4

Wide 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

5

Variety 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.

6

Love em.
I love the fatbells for accessories and variations. I find a nice mix of kettles, fats and dumbs to be perfect for home/garage set up.

A little more brittle than I thought they'd be
I originally loved the concept of these. Loved the idea of combining KBs and DBs. Just disappointed at how brittle the top edges are, a lot of chipping paint. I think I'd still prefer KBs and DBs for there price points and functionality in comparison.

Awesome product, feels more stable and takes stress of the joints. Definitely centers the weight better.

Center of Gravity is amazing!
I'm loving the fatbells. I needed a dumbbell in the weight I chose and it works nicely there. The center of mass is directly on the hands, so no torqueing when you twist your hand like you would a dumbbell. Its been great for flyes, cleans, and overhead work. The grip is slightly big for my hand, but it makes it more comfortable when its racked. Very worth the purchase.

Almost as cool as the kettle bell!
I have to admit, I bought a fatbell because it was cool looking and unique, it appeared to be a hybrid dumbbell-kettlebell. Turns out I really like it. It's versatile, especially if you no longer have access to a regular gym, are limited in space and budget. The fatbell is a multi-exercise chunk of iron that is only limited by your imagination. It combines many of the features and exercises of both dumbbells and kettle bells. I plan on adding more to my modest home gym collection. I recommend one or two for you.

Solid gear
Great quality build. Interesting design I like.. Crazy thing is I was only able to buy one as during the time I hesitated thinking of what weight was most important they were sold out! i think I hesitated for about 30 seconds and I felt lucky to get one! No big deal, eventually things will calm down. If not, I'm still good w the one as it's a challenge.

Surprised
Bought them for help with shoulder injury but my wife ended up loving them. She has a small frame and finds dumbbells too clumsy. For this reason she finds the fatbells great. Only downside, they are expensive but you get what you pay for. Great quality and a product you’ll want to use.
