Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

The Gripmaster Hand Exercisers provide you with a way in which you can exercise the fingers, wrist and forearms safely and at your own leisure. They are available in different tensions for lighter or heavier workouts, depending on the needs of the individual. The fact that they only cost a fraction over $10.00 each means that the outlay is a no-lose situation.

Not only will this type of exercise equipment give you a stronger grip, it will help anyone suffering from hand or wrist injury to rehabilitate through daily exercises that can be controlled without the risk of straining and causing further injury.

The Gripmaster Hand Exerciser allows the fingers to be isolated and exercised independently from one another. The pistons are spring-loaded and there are four of them, one for each finger. Whereas other hand exercisers will allow the stronger, more dominant fingers to do most of the work, this exerciser can be used one finger at a time ensuring that every finger gets the same workout.

The Gripmaster Hand Exerciser is available in four different tensions from the extra-light yellow (3 lbs), light blue (5 lbs), medium red (7 lbs) and heavy black (9 lbs). It is recommended that those who have not worked out before should start on the lighter grips, either the yellow or the blue.
