Iron Grip Barbell Company
Iron Grip's XL® handle dumbbell features a substantially thicker handle design, measuring a full 1¾ inches in diameter from end to end. The extra-wide handle diameter allows the user to fully engage the muscles in the fingers and hands, increasing grip strength and potentially leading to shorter, more efficient workouts since it reduces the need for additional grip exercises at the end of a workout. The XL handle dumbbell features solid, one-piece construction with heads encapsulated in Iron Grip's proprietary, American-made urethane, which is specially formulated to resist wear and tear and stay looking new longer. Dumbbells are available in sizes ranging from 5 to 175 pounds and can be customized with permanently engraved logos.
