We all know Kettlebells can be tough to get used to initially. They're one of the most technique-focused resistance tools out there.
I feel that's one of the primary reasons that people try them and may decide to stick with barbells or dumbbells
Especially if they aren't being coached in person.
Enter Thompson Fatbells
With Thompson Fatbells, the weight is around your hand and wrist.
Meaning where your hand is, the weight is.
This makes the Fatbell a weight that is easily controlled.
Cleans and snatches aren't nearly as technical as kettlebell moves of the same name.
This means you can add in and or progress with these exercises faster than with kettlebells.
Like kettlebells, Fatbells are a wonderful tool that can be used anywhere from the living room and garage gym to the outdoors.
For some people, kettlebells bother their wrist or forearm. Fatbells don't rest on the forearm like kettlebells do.
With Fatbells, you can move even faster than kettlebells as you don't have to wait to reposition the weight on the clean or snatch.
This allows you to swing, press, clean, and snatch with a higher RPM than kettlebells if that is your goal.
In over 90% of all the programs I have made for this website, Fatbells can be used interchangeably with kettlebells.
This is the beauty of Fatbells compared to dumbbells.
Fatbells don't make you lose a lot of ROM as heavier dumbbells do due to their length increase as they get heavier.
Since fatbell and kettlebell exercises are similar, you can do almost everything without modification.
But if you need to, message me, and I can help!
The training programs I have created at the shop are meant to build strength AND conditioning simultaneously.
Using Fatbells and kettlebells will give you an athletic build and ability.
"I had the pleasure of meeting Joe Daniels in 2015 through kettlebell training.
The Fatbells had just been released, taking massive criticism from the public.
Joe saw there was something about them the critics refused to see.
He found out they may enhance his kettlebell moves through variation and hand positioning.
I finally met him in 2017, and we were like two long-lost brothers.
Joe has made room for Fatbell training in his training.
He also offers programming through his online courses.
Proud to know Joe, and I have learned some excellent Fatbell moves from him myself!"
Hulk Hands was the name of the event.
Happy to see Fatbells getting more visibility
