Well yesterday I got in my order of Fat Gripz for Bushido and my own training.
If you aren’t familiar with them they basically make your bar thicker! Pretty simple hey. But in doing this it requires more bicep and forearm recruitment while training and also really improves overall grip strength.
If you arms are a weak part (as mine are) these will really improve muscle growth, and they are fantastic for improving grip for martial arts as the forearm and upper arm are thicker than most traditional bars and grips in the gym.
I will get some videos tomorrow AM and post them up. I am very excited to get these rotated in my workouts!
“At the Poliquin Strength Institute and in all gyms I have consulted for, thick handle dumbbells are a staple purchase. However, they are not cheap by any means and, of course, you can only find them in top notch training centers. But there is an alternative: FAT GRIPZ. They are tough as hell and fit on any regular weight training equipment better than anything else I have ever seen. Now you have no excuses for sporting your weak eleven-teen inch arms! To get your own pair go to fatgripz.com”
