Intensify Your Gym Dates with "La Gordaza"

"My protein shake brings the boys to the yard. And they're like: your muscles are hard. Damn right, my muscles are hard. I could train ya, but I'd have to charge."

Meet "La Gordaza" our 25 lb axle bar or "fat bar." She's the daughter of "El Gordazo," our 20 kg axle bar.

Thankfully, she's slimmer, with a smoother and shinier finish than her dad, and her protein shakes and hard muscles are just right.

She's Makes Your Dreams Come True

If you're not ready to go full plus size on your axle bar, then La Gordaza makes for the perfect garage gym date. Her lighter weight won't be as taxing on you while still hitting new muscle angles and dialing up the training intensity.

If you're in the market for a hardy and solid as a steer barbell then you've found a new love in Texas. The thick bar shaft will grind your forearms and kick up your grip strength to pro rodeo, bull riding levels.

Whether you're looking for something new in your training, or you're hankering for more strongman tools in your gym, you can't swipe right on La Gordaza fast enough.

After you bring her home and go on a few gym dates, you'll be the envy of coworkers, neighbors, and passersby on the street alike. The shape you're in will turn heads and make people wonder where the newfound confidence came from.

What is a "Fat Bar"?

Axle bars or "fat bars" have long been used in strongman competitions. There are two unique aspects to fat bar training:

  • The grip area on the bar is way thicker (about 2") than an Olympic barbell - this turns most exercises into forearm blasters and ratchets up the intensity.
  • The collars do not rotate- so going ground-to-shoulder or ground-to-overhead is much harder than with an Oly barbell. For heavyweights, you may even need to use the dreaded "continental clean" instead of a standard clean to get the weight to shoulder.
