Why Thick Bar Training? Try contracting just your bicep with an open hand. Then contract your bicep plus your forearm with a closed fist. You will notice a much stronger contraction in your bicep when your fist is closed. This is called muscle irradiation. The basic principle of irradiation states that the harder a muscle contracts, the harder the surrounding muscle contracts. This is the principle behind the movement to thicker training bars. If your hand is contracting more because the bar is thicker and awkward to control, the entire muscle group activated by the exercise will be more engaged. In the early days of bodybuilding, thick handle barbells were more common with 2" plus outside diameters. Today, most gyms and training centers are equipped with barbells and dumbbells with 1" handles. However, there is a resurgence in thick handle training equipment because trainers, athletes, bodybuilders and recreational lifters are re-discovering the significant benefits when the Fit Grips are used. Core Prodigy has several versions (round and cylinder) called Fit Grips. Fit Grips Sport (sphere with 2.5" O.D.).
Fit Grips Sport spheres are roughly the same size as a baseball. The sphere shape allow you to instantly increase the outside diameter of dumbbells, curl bars, resistance bands, pull up bars, push up bars and cable attachments for thick bar (fat) training.
Long-lasting, high-quality, dense non-slip military grade silicone that resists extreme wear and tear. Fit Grips have a unique cross-stitch grip designed that enables a safe and strong hold. Used by NFL players, MMA fighters, bodybuilders, cross-fitters, power-lifters and many pro athletes.
The ergonomic round design distributes force to the natural shape of the human grip. By increasing the size of the bar you will notice more isolation on your forearms, biceps and triceps.
The outside diameter is 2.5 inches. Inside diameter is 1 inch which fits on most standard and olympic bars.

The Shoulder Tube provides the overhand athlete an ideal way to condition and prepare the shoulder for the act of throwing. The deliberate oscillation of the Shoulder Tubeâ„¢ in a slow, rhythmic fashion by moving the arm will cause the counterweighted ends of the Shoulder Tube to change directions stretching (eccentric phase) and shortening (concentric phase) the affected muscle group. The position of the Shoulder Tubeâ„¢ and the direction it is flexed determines the muscle groups that are exercised. Controlling the omni-directional movement of the counter weights as the device is being moved through the shoulderâ€™s full range of motion causes increased flexibility and blood flow to the shoulder complex. The construction and flexibility of the round shaft device permits the athlete to exercise the shoulder at an intensity that is self determined. The more energy that is used to move the device results in greater energy levels returned to the shoulder by the rotational motion of the counterweights. Using the Shoulder Tube is a great way to warm up for the act of throwing or cool down afterwards. It is an essential tool for the health and durability of all throwing athletes.
