Better than not having any. Good for smaller hands May 30 2010
By Holden Brown - Published on

Excuse my English it's not perfect.

Ended up giving them to a girl friend. Too small for my hands although my hands are medium sized - male hands. It won't allow my hand to open more than 60% of what it can, and this allows about a half muscle workout instead of full.

If you are a male with medium to bigger hands and would like to have a nice strong looking forearms you should go with the bigger/harder ones, with the wider space per opening and closing. These feel like toys in my hands. I could do about 4-5 squeezes per second.

It works, not very effective though Feb. 28 2011

I somewhat regret not heeding some of the advice given by other reviewers on here. This product works very well, but I found the resistance to be a little on the weaker side. I suppose it depends on what you're looking for. If you just want to strengthen your wrists a little, this product works fine. But if you really want to build up your wrists and forearms, put in the extra money and buy something better. This product has low resistance and is not comfortable at all to use for extended periods of time. The grips are pretty cheap (foam) and slip and move under your hand.

Take-home message: For the occasional user who isn't too set on quality, get this product, it's a good bargain. Otherwise, keep looking.

hand grips April 19 2010
By joe centola - Published on

I believe I paid around 10 dollars for hand exercisers and shipping together. Good enough product for price. Liked that it came with 2 grips as they are somewhat easy to misplace. Foam hand-grips slide off very easily but slide back on just as easy. In terms of results YES I did see results with this product. As far as how much stronger my hands got I cant really say. If you are trying to decide between these of a more expensive pair just get these. My rating 7/10 and yes I would buy again.

Comfy and Sturdy Hand Gym Oct. 26 2011

The padded grips and lower strength were perfect for the exercise recommended by my physical therapist. They fit my small hands perfectly and are easy enough to squeeze without digging into my thumb. I haven't had any issue with the padding coming loose on the pair I received. Two grips are included which lets me keep one at my desk at work and one at home.

I have various brands and models and brands of hand grips and use them rather constantly. first let me say that I use all of these grips for as a form of therapy that actually strength building - although the strength comes and remains with constant use.

I keep hand grips in our cars as I fiddle with them as I drive. I have them located near my reading chair, on the back porch where I set with my dogs, at my desk here in my home office and various other locations around the home where I spend significant time. I use these grips because I am old and due to my age I have developed arthritis in both hands. I find that with constant and rather mild exercise and mild doses of Ibuprofen that I can manage the pain and maintain flexibility. Of course it also helps maintain my muscle tone in my forearms.

These particular grips are rather on the light side when it comes working with them. They are ideal for a large number of of my primary goals. These grips are also ideal for those who have smaller hands. The foam handles are comfortable enough but please keep in mind that they do slip off quite easily, but as noted by other reviewers, they can be put back on with great ease.

These are the grips I keep in our automobiles. They are relatively inexpensive to replace which is a plus for me as our cars seem to actually be "black holes" where things seem to vanish with no explanation. These things are not all that expensive and it is far better to loose an item at this price than that of more than triple the cost.

These are effective in my case and they do the job I pay them to do. Were I seriously into body building or were I 40 or 50 years younger I probably would go for something a bit more sophisticated and something that would give me more of a workout. As it stands though, I am quite happy with this product and as I loose the ones I have now I will replace them with others of this style and brand.
