Pre-Order Your 20kg Axle "Fat" Bar
"El Gordazo" is the patriarch of our ultra garage gear, axle bar family, "The Gordos." All that time at the taqueria has paid off and turned him into if not lean, beefy, mean, lifting machine.
The rock solid "El Gordazo" will make your strongman dreams a reality. This burly, belly full of a bar (think continental cleans) works your forearms and comes in handy for strongman training and competitions..
There are a few things to note for the Axle Barbell.
Axle bars or "fat bars" have long been used in strongman competitions. There are two unique aspects to fatbar training:
Picked this up bar for strongman and as a extra bar in general. The math is simple gym math as the bar weighs 44lbs. This has been used 4 times a week for the past year and has worked like a champ. I have bent weaker axle bars during deadlifts but have had no issues with this one. Definitely recommend.
This Axle "Fat Bar" (El Gordazo) from Fringesport is a beast. It's a full 20KG bar, not 20-25lbs like others. It can handle anything you throw at it. This has been fantastic for everything from deadlifts, squats, bench press, and overhead press, even cleans. As promised, this 2" diameter bar turns most exercises into forearm/grip blasters. This is a solid bar, it's built like a tank!
This bar is the real deal - heavy, solid and well built. I bought this bar to keep the plate math easy since it weighs the same as my other bars. The sleeves do not spin and the stops are solid welds, which is great. The Chinese packaging always gets to me destroyed, but the bar was fine.
So glad you love the bar! Hope you enjoy using it!
Thicc boi bar. Very sturdy obviously since it is steel. The finish will not hold up at all but who cares just go exercise.
I'm very pleased with my Axle fatbar.. The bar itself is solid. The welds appear to be very good. They are even all the way around. Powder coating is very good. And, I was able to buy it while on sale, so I feel like I got a great deal. The fatbar is very versatile. I use it with my landmine attachment without concern for damaging sleeves on more expensive Olympic barbells.. The large diameter handle should make it more comfortable to use for Zercher squats, and hip thrusts. The bar arrived in a coardboard tube, which was split and taped up. Not sure how that could have happened.. Regardless, the bar was undamaged. No scratches or marks of any sort. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase. The bar is well made and the price was right. I expect to use the bar in a variety of different exercises.
