Phat Bars

A couple of guys have got some fat bars (olympic plate hole width, and 3 in diameter).

I am intrigued by these and understand that they can have benefits in including them into a training cycle, but i have a couple of questions…

What kind of benefit can be derived from using them in place of o bars?

What kind of exercises and set/rep schemes have people used.

I have done some 1 hand snatches and they are a whole different kettle of fish than with an o bar!

Your kind help required.

cheers

They work the grip more…or the grip gets worked more…however you wish to see it.

“I have done some 1 hand snatches and they are a whole different kettle of fish than with an o bar!”

Don’t say kettle, it’ll make people scream about Pavel and aggressive marketing.

…It’s mostly a grip thing with the thicker bars.

thought as much.

KETTLE!
