Reduce Grip Strain – Fat Gripz

Tennis elbow was nearly eliminated in the sport of tennis by switching to larger handles on the racquets. And the same concept can help gym rats cure their case of tennis elbow too. Fat Gripz are easy to slide over the grip of barbells, dumbbells, and even pull up bars. They increase the bar diameter to reduce grip strain.  And that can help heal your golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow.

I actually recommend the Fat Gripz “One Series” since they are a little smaller than the original. This makes them better for the quick movements of functional fitness.  And after reading the reviews it seems the original size was just too large for many people, especially women. I think these slightly slimmer grips will serve you better!

This helps to relieve tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow while still getting your fix of gym time. Using them at the first signs of elbow pain may help prevent you from getting full-blown elbow tendinitis.  There are lots of reviews for their products, and nearly all of them positive.  The original product of its kind, these guys have adjusted the Fat Gripz over time to be sure they are easy to get on and off, have better materials, and won’t slip and slide as easily as other brands. These were originally developed to improve strength gains, so you’ll still be getting a good workout while helping your elbows.


More expensive than their competitors. But after reading many, many, MANY reviews it seems that people who have used both recommend the original Fat Gripz brand over the cheaper competition.  Why? Usually, because the other brands don’t fit well and tend to slip on the bar, making it pretty difficult to throw those weights around the way you love to do.  Remember that these are not going to fit on every fitness apparatus.  You certainly wouldn’t want to do kipping movements or muscle-ups with these.  And they shouldn’t be used on kettlebells, we don’t want those to slip and go flying across a crowded gym.
