Kensui EZ-VEST Weighted Vest Review: The Plate-Loadable Weight Vest

The Kensui EZ-VESTis a weighted vest that utilizes Olympic weight plates instead of vest plates to allow incremental loading on bodyweight movements as well as a tremendously high max load of 225 LB. After testing the PRO and MAX models for pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, dips, box jumps, and other movements over the past two months, we highly recommend the EZ-VEST. It’s quite different from traditional weight vests and it’s not great for every movement/workout (running wasn’t great,) but it excels in areas where most weight vests don’t.

Snake Bite Grips are an attachment that increases the diameter of a barbell or dumbbell to create thick grip. They're very similar to Fat Gripz, but with a unique, laser-etched snakeskin knurling pattern that feels as good as it looks. We do prefer these to Fat Gripz, but still recommend Fat Gripz for most due to a lower price point.

Sorinex Pistol Grips Review: Fun and Useful Grip Tool

Sorinex is producing some of the best racks and rigs on the market, but in addition to the big items, they're also coming out with some seriously impressive attachments. Items like their Adjustable Jammer Arms and Indexing Chin Bar are extremely versatile and now they can add another item to their list of innovation: Sorinex Pistol Grips. The Pistol Grips from Sorinex are definitely "cool", but more than that, they're a versatile tool for anyone from the operator to the office worker for increasing grip and pulling strength.

Fat Gripz In-Depth Review

Fat Gripz are barbell attachments that increase the grip diameter, essentially turning any solid bar into an axle bar. They're incredibly tough, useful, and surprisingly cheap. We highly recommend them.
