Thick Bar Gadgets

Back when I had a home gym I bought a thick barbell from IronMind. Loved it. Now I no longer have my home gym and instead go to a franchise gym that has no thick bars.

Is anyone aware of any product that could snap onto a regular barbell (or dumbbell) converting it to a thick bar? Ideally it would be something portable.

thanks - MAS

I haven’t tried either so I can’t give any personal advice. You could always use a towel, but that’s kind of crude.

ivanko easy grips come to mind
