"Fat Bar" Axle Bar for Grip Strength and Strongman Training

Our Axle Bar or "Fat Bar" is solid, heady duty barbell. The thick shaft of the bar really works your forearms and is typically used for Strongman training and competitions.

  • This axle is a true 44LB! Most fat bars on the market "cheat" and are only 20-25 pounds. Not the OneFitWonder Axle Bar!
  • This axle (or fat bar) is a full 7' long and 2" in diameter- it will take your deadlifts, presses, and cleans into a whole new level of suffering.
  • Standard collars fit on this fatbar.
  • Full year satisfaction guarantee, with FREE returns
  • Powdercoat matte black finish
  • Weight Rating: 1,000 lbs

There are a few things to note for the Axle Barbell.

  • This is a true strongman axle / fat bar - there is no knurling on the bar.
  • The 2" diameter includes the shaft of the bar, explaining the "fat bar" nickname.
  • This is one, solid bar. The collars do not rotate.

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 am 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.
