Product Review: Snake Bite Grips – Thick Bar/Dumbbell Grips

Product Details:
Snake Bite Grips – Thick Bar/Dumbbell Grips Muscle Growth Adapter

Double the thickness of your bar to maximize your gains!

Studies show that increasing the diameter of barbells and dumbbells leads to greater muscle activation—and that’s what Snake Bite Grips do. But we’re not like all the other companies that just slap their name on the same old bland design that looks identical to all the other thick grips. No, not us—we refuse to be ordinary.

We took thick grips to a whole new level. Our team spent almost a year developing our unmatchable Snake Bite Grip design. After many stages of strategic testing, we’re able to offer you what we confidently believe are the best thick grips available today!
  • INCREASED ARM SIZE AND GRIT FORCE: By increasing the diameter of the bar, Snake Bite Grips activate the muscle fibers that have been neglected in previous workouts.
  • IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Snake Bite Grips are designed to intensify every workout, and you’ll notice the difference after the very first time you use them.
  • PATENT-PENDING SNAKE SCALE DESIGN: Our design is the most creative and innovative grip pattern available on the market today. Snake Bite Grips offer comfort and prevent slipping and sliding, unlike other brands.
  • TESTED DURABILITY. Our silicone Snake Bite Grips are in it for the long-haul. We know you don’t quit, so they won’t be quitting on you either.
  • EASY TO USE. Our grips feature a large slit, allowing them to be attached to any barbell or dumbbell with ease. But contrary to other brands, our design wraps all the way around, leaving a much smaller gap.
  • CONVENIENT: With your pair of grips, you’ll receive a black premium 100% polyester carrying bag imposed with the Snake Bite logo. No need to tear apart your gym duffle, as they’ll always be stored together.

Product Review:
I have been using these Snake Bite Fitness Grips for a while. If you don’t know what they are, they are like a portable and affordable FATBAR. Coming off of hand surgery I thought these would be a great tool to add in my Training. Their primary purpose is to challenge the hand and forearm muscles more during pulling and curling movements, but they also improve hand comfort during heavy pushing movements and prevent active and passive insufficiency of the wrist and finger flexors during wrist curls and extensions.  Man I didn’t know what I was getting into to.

I had them on all the barbells, curl bars, pulldown, row and even the dip machine. What I found out was they are easy to snap on and easy to remove.  The next day was Deadlifts and some Rows. Time to really see how these will work out. I started off with deadlifts. I snapped them on the bar and started warming up. Slapped 135lbs on and then 185lbs. I quickly had to use chalk to help hold my grip. These really showed me how weak my grip really was and what maybe was the reason for my hand injury! I followed up with one more set with them on. Then I ditched them for my heavy deadlift sets.

They are easy to put on and take off of equipment, and once on they are very secure. Moving the alpha grips between different bars and handles takes only a few seconds, so if you rush between exercises for metabolic effect they won’t slow you down (this is key for a crossfitter when I am just lifting heavy to keep up the intensity) With my smaller hands these grips were challenging enough to grip to produce a considerable burn in my forearms.

My thought’s so far. These SB Grips will humble even the biggest guy in the gym.   BUT they will help you build the strength and grip needed so it does not become the limited factor on your lifts. I have been using these weekly and have made them a staple in my routine. I use them mainly on warm ups leading up to my heavy set.

What makes these different than other Fatbar attachments? The biggest thing for me is the textured surface of the grip itself. It’s more form fitting to provide a more secure grip. I also found it easy on the wrist then a normal Fatbar. All the other grips I have seen have been straight flat surface. Snake Bite Fitness are the only ones I’ve seen like this.
