The Extreme Olympic Hercules® Grip Bar by York Barbell is a great option when considering thick bar training. The larger diameter gripping area of these thick bars can often resemble a truck axle and many lifters report that on the first use it felt like picking up weights for the first time again. It is known that training with thick bars will stimulate more muscle fibers in the hands and forearms due to the increased maximal contraction of the muscle you are working as well as the surrounding muscles.
The York Hercules Fat Bar features a monster 2" (50.8mm) thick knurled bar for ultimate grip training to increase forearm strength and size. This 7’ Olympic Fat Bar weighs 52 lbs which is about 7 lbs. more steel than the average bar. This thing is a monster!
