    I love my Fat Gripz. I throw them in on my rows, curls, or shrugs, every couple weeks.

    I use pipe insulation from Home Depot and it makes a huge difference when I'm doing back work. Same thing as Pump said, I use it about every 3 weeks or so. Have to use lighter weights for a while when using, but your forearms get awesome work out of it.

    That and it tends to take pressure off my shoulders when pressing. But I do that rarely.

    Versa Gripps have nothing in common with Fat Grips. They are actually the complete opposite of what he is looking for.
