Looking for a heavier alternative for casual hand grip strength training while frustrated at work to the Kettler-HandGrips or the heavier 10kg-40kg Kettler-HandGrip-Justerbar. The name of a tool that's mobile, while simultaneously giving a little more pull for the buck.
>"hand grip strength training while frustrated at work"
Oh yes it is, however I'm sure my boss would look a little funny my way if I bring a bar and heavy plates into my workplace.
Just got one of these for free not too long ago. I've just been squeezing it when I'm bored increasing resistance when it gets ridiculously easy. I try to emphasise my ring and pinky fingers since they're incredibly weak. Fucks my diddlies up.
Just bought this and it seems pretty great so far. Goes as 45 lbs and as high a 500
Just google searched it, the Spring Gripper. Sweet, how much did you pay and where did you buy yours?
Good to know, I'm not in a hurry of destroying my joints just yet. Can you tell me more, what type of exercise should I practice and what type of elastic bands should I buy?
well, for starters don't buy too strong of a gripper, these things are known to cause injury to the tendons. Take it slow, and only once you can close one for more than 10-15 times consider closing the one next. Ideally you would want to own 3, one you can close easily, the one you are working with, and the one you can nearly close
For example, warm up your forearms with a foam ball or something, than close the weak one 15-20 times with each hand, wait a minute and then close the one you are working with as many times as you can, and maybe at the end of your workout try to close the hard one
There are also exercises called negatives, which means you hold it in one hand, then close the hard gripper with both hands and then try to keep it closed for as long as you can
Be VERY careful for signals of elbow pain
Thanks for all the helpful information and instruction, I will apply myself. In the case of elbow pain what should one do, just take a couple of rest days I presume.
There is a long way to go from my 40kg Kettler-Hand Grip-Justerbar, for sure. That said, it's not like I don't do other forms of exercises strengthening my grip. But as I told:
Not verry fitting in a job setting
The same as when I damaged my teres minor then, after a month I thought it was never going to heal but it got better and healed fully the third month around. Anyway, thanks again.
You're right, he should just shove them up his asswhole already.
I bought a set of grippers from a company called Iron Mind. 5 Gripper Set. It was $100 or so. The best I know of.
