    Fat Gripz anyone?

    So my fiance bought me Fat Gripz for my birthday. If anyone is not familiar with these just google them. I've used them for a few workouts already and man do I get some insane pumps! They are heavy duty and I cannot imagine these things ever wearing out. You do have to check your ego at the door because you will not be able to lift the same amount of weight using these things on ANY exercise. Just did back and bis with these things today and honestly my biceps havent had a pump like this since I was in my early twenties. Anyone else have any experience with these?

    Yeah man, the only thing I have in common with horses is running some EQ.

    You say they work, I believe they do.

    I have seen all the BodyBuilders pimping these... don't really get the idea behind them. thought it was just to protect your hands. so the oversized grip is supposed to make it more difficult?

    More difficult/challenging and they are also supposed to recruit more muscle fibers. Here is one of many articles about fat bar/grip training.

    Yeah I use them in my routine occasionally, not all the time but it is def worth throwing in every two weeks to hit muscle fibers in a different ways. Change it up, keep body guessing.
