    FUUUUUUUUU

    looks like it's made better than my tyler grips.

    even though it's in my gym bag gathering dust...

    price? hard rubber or silicone?

    slick. looks like it'd be a nice treat (and probably cut down on the calluses)

    i see this one huge dude who uses these pieces of foam that look like toast - for what i'd imagine would have a similar effect

    i usually use them toward the end of a workout. if i do deads, ill finish with a set or two with these with lighter weight.

    i dont know if theres any correlation, but when i was using my tyler grips religiously is when i got my bench to 315 :dunno:

    does using fat bars make as big of a difference as this hype site claims?

    The fat gripz are suppose to "immitate" a fat bar or fat db.

    The only real benefits i see from these are grip strength and forearm strength. If anyone sees any other benefits, feel free to chime in.

    I still think a fat bar is superior. allows for movement on the hand, especially when pressing.

    edit: It's a couple cents cheaper for me to order from the Fat Gripz website, than EliteFTS.

    :dunno:

    One of my training partners recently fucked up one of the fingers on his right hand affecting his ability to squeeze the bar while benching. He has noticed his strength and stability took a nosedive. So following bro-science it would make sense that using fatgripz/tylergrips would have a positive affect on your pressing strength.
