Far from just another fat (thicker) grip, our unique patented design allows for increased exercise variation and can help improve both gross and fine motor skills. GLOBE GRIPZ™ allow the hand to form arches it may not otherwise do in a weight training environment and, during an orthodox grip, can encourage greater recruitment of the less sensitive and dextrous Ring and Pinky fingers to help improve overall grip strength. In addition, GLOBE GRIPZ™ adapts barbells to be easily used with an EZ-Grip or Neutral-Grip to reduce respective strain on the wrists or shoulder complex.
For a single order (quantity 1), you receive a pair of GLOBE GRIPZ™ (2 globes) and Instructions For Use within our multi-use postal tube/ presentation pack/ carry-case.

Hygienic and durable, GLOBE GRIPZ™ are made from an FDA approved high-grade elastomer polymer, which ensures they will not split or crack and are wipe clean (note: do not clean with a chemical that can damage the properties of silicone!).
As illustrated, GLOBE GRIPZ™ are designed for use with most generic standard (1”) and Olympic (2”) bars and can be used comfortably with bar shaft diameters measuring 25mm to 32mm. They are not best-suited for use with oversized bars (e.g. squat bars, cheaply made bars, ergo-grip bars) and are not designed for use with fat/ thick bars.
GLOBE GRIPZ™ can be used for a multitude of exercises whereby you have a grip on a barbell, dumbbells, or cable handle. This includes almost all "press" movements (e.g. Bench Press, Shoulder Press, etc.) and "pull" movements (e.g. Deadlift, Rows, Pulldowns, etc.). Particularly favored for use with arm movements, there's a few other exercises you may not have thought of utilising GLOBE GRIPZ™ for (e.g. Front Squats).

It takes seconds to add GLOBE GRIPZ™ to your bars, dumbbells, & cable handles. GLOBE GRIPZ™ are simple to use - just open the slit and push them over your bar. When they’re in place, they’re rock-solid on the bar - they won’t budge, slip, or compress – so you can focus on your lift. And when you’re done, just slip them off.
The blue (Earth) GLOBE GRIPZ™ measure 73mm in diameter (each globe), the approximate dimensions of a Major League Baseball ball and similar in size to Tennis and Cricket balls. This makes GLOBE GRIPZ™ ideal for sports-specific training whilst also feeling comfortable in the palm.
They (Globe Gripz) convert any straight bar into a multi-angle curl bar. They also allow you to use a neutral grip with a straight bar when performing any pressing or rowing movements, a small change which many people find helps keep their achy shoulders from getting irritated. The pulling motions also become intense grip tests. The real attraction with Globe Gripz is how they allow you to experiment and discover your weak spots. For the first time, I could focus on my weaker fingers and build strength where it was lacking. These simple spheres add a whole new dimension to thick bar training. I’m impressed!

Got the Globe Gripz the next day - what a difference they make! Can really feel it in the fingers, hands, forearms - all movements are changed. To me that is great value, I have effectively changed almost every bar in my home gym and they can be used in different ways ... tripling the variety of lifts. Amazed that something so simple had not been done before, also impressed with the quality of the product, I expected it would be simple plastic but it seems a very robust material. Would likely make a great gift for anyone who lifts.David Stephenson, UK
I put them (Globe Gripz) on a pulldown bar and they work good for stiff arm pulldowns - making the grip more comfortable!

Globe Gripz have been a great tool for working on my grip and forearm strength. They fit naturally into the shape of my hands and I’ve used them for doing pullups and hanging on for time. TheY really force you to work hard to keep your thumb and hand from opening up.

I really like Globe Gripz. Great activation through fingers, hands and forearms. I'll get the boys on them this week for sure.

I haven't been able to train Barbell Curls without serious burning pain in my wrists and elbows for years. I finally said, "T HELL With Them," because I was sick of the pain, and used other exercises instead. However, with Globe Gripz on the bar, I am able to get out of that extreme supination position that Barbell Curls force upon you, and I can actually do them again. Now, the only burning is from the serious PUMP that I get!

Suffering with a bit of an injury to the rotator cuff region recently and also get pain in the forearms occasionally, these (Globe Gripz) have helped relieve that. Helped out my grip, which also suffers in some exercises and has a more natural feel and connection to the bar, especially in curling exercises. As we all know, attacking muscles from new angles and being able to vary what we do is vital and the globes help that hugely.

Comfortable to hold and a great alternative to a regular grip on the bar. plus, they're hygienic! i strongly recommend.
I really cannot advocate the use of Globe Gripz enough:- it has changed the way I train forever! As a sufferer of Crohns and arthritis, my hands are badly affected and grip is something I struggle with. Wrapping my hands tightly around a standard bar often leads to cramping and my hands get stuck in one position which hurts me a lot! Since I started using globe gripz I noticed that it was so much more comfortable for me. Asides from that, I really feel like my muscles are being worked differently and it has been a welcome change to my routine! Highly recommended!

It's a really simple piece of fitness equipment and for less than the price of a single physical therapy session, I have seen my single pair of Globe Gripz help a whole bunch of clients get rid of sore shoulders while make significant gains in grip and overall upper-body strength. They’re a must-buy!

If you have bad joints like I do, holding a bar causes tremendous pain in the shoulder joint. When you distribute the weight over your entire hand with Globe Gripz, the shoulder doesn’t hurt as much - I love the way that it feels! Anyone out there with injuries, try these Globe Gripz – they will help you and increase your muscular development too! I am impressed – they’re high quality!

Talking about a revolution. Second workout arms and all done with globe gripz. felt good and maintained full weight and reps. tbh, it's a more natural grip. If you're training without Globe Gripz you're missing the boat. You simply have to experience these babies to fully appreciate just how you're NOT training...sold 100%
I've noticed my grip getting stronger and the doms are not as bad as they were - i've never felt my forearms ache so much. Still can’t get over the incredible arm pump you get with Globe Gripz.

I have Globe Gripz in the shop alongside a pair of grip4orce "handles" and the Globe Gripz are far nicer to use - you can feel EVERY finger coming into play unlike fat gripz. So impressed, I've added Globe Gripz to our shop range of products.

THE EAGLE HAS LANDED! After doing pull ups and chins then a gauntlet of dumbbell, barbell, kettle bell, ishi sashi and strands using the Globe Gripz I put them side by side on a rattan stick and used them from my lumber to occipital, deep into the rhomboids while touring the thoracic, the fascia down the side of my legs also my shins, forearms and pecs, your product has another gig repurposed as an adjustable width trigger point therapy roller. I am really pleased with the manifestation of Globe Gripz, cheers for going top quality, I glad you designed it tight so I can use them on the ends of my hanging wrist roller...in fact I can probably use them in some way with most of my grip toys. GREAT! Amazing versatility, Thanks a thousand and one ways, sincere,Beau Resnick, USA
For stroke survivors, these are unique. I've already used some with patients and they work very well with patients with spasticity in upper limb. Big fan!

Globe Gripz clip to most bars to test every digit as you pull or push. Use them for almost any dumbbell move to improve pull-up strength. Use these advanced grip trainers to boost your strength!
Globe Gripz really do add a different dimension to workouts. They allow you to change the angle of exercises without lots of fancy equipment, they help promote grip strength and your wrists don’t seem to take such a battering. I will certainly be using Globe Gripz in my training as I feel they add a nice twist to many exercises.

Get a grip - Globe Gripz. Holding onto stuff is surprisingly hard - it uses 35 muscles in our lower arms and hands. Clipping this spherical attachment onto any free weight provides multiple ways to grip, which in turn activates different muscles to build strength and improve pulling power. One of the greatest toys in health & fitness.

Create a totally different grip for your hand which starts to engage your forearm muscles much more. What I Like: Size- can be brought anywhere for a workout; Durability- almost impossible to breakdown; Efficient- Allows you to incorporate more muscles into a workout/lift without adding extra reps or sets; Price- Seriously it’s totally worth it! What I Would Change: Nothing! Pick yourself up a pair of Globe Gripz and see your forearms GROW! Love your product!

Keeping myself educated with the latest trends in strength training, recently I have used Globe Gripz in my training changing the way you hold dumbbells and bars adds a new dimension to exercises and decreases strain.
