What is a "Fat Bar"?

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

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