As the pursuit of building my home gym continues, I'm about to purchase a Thompson fat pad with the rogue "monster utility" bench (as I can't see the point of buying a cheap ass bench then throwing another 200 to have the pad shipped),but is there any other place than rogue to buy this setup at?
Furthermore, Rogue says that they cannot put the fat pad on their 2.0 or any other bench if I order directly.

It looks like Donnie Thompson has an exclusive deal with Rogue....just weighing options before I pull the trigger.

Thanks

Rogue is where it's at...... We actually just got a new Fat Pad for my bench. A teammate had an old Fat Pad on his but when he moved he took it with him. The new one is definitely firmer - which I really like. The old one was so soft I couldn't feel if I was centered on it. The new one feels more stable.

Either way, get it. It took 9 months of benching without it for my shoulders to start hurting again. After 2 weeks back on it ( we use it 3 out of 4 weeks in training) my shoulders feel a lot better.

Fat pad is next on my list. I was hoping for my birthday, but financial forecast looks more like Christmas.

UHC you get it or what?
Actually I didn't. My 24 hour gym bought one about a week prior to me pulling the trigger so I grabbed a commercial bench set up for 140 bucks that I put a tack sheet on it for grip.

I do love the fat pad at the gym though. The thing is mint

What is the purpose behind the fat pad, helps lock the shoulders in?

I used the titan knock off yesterday. I completely get it now. Pretty nice pad too.

Wow, this is old. I actually got one maybe two years ago. I would never go back to a regular bench.

Strong bump. I got the Thompson fat pad and Rogue Monster bench a couple years ago too. Love it.

I used the Bandbell for the first time today. Another fun piece of equipment to use. All the new innovation is very fun to watch. Happy training to all.
