The Gripmaster Exercisers are different from conventional grips in that you can either work your entire hand at once, or each finger individually (great for guitar players, I've heard!). One side features four small levers, each with its own spring, that can be squeezed together or one at a time. The plastic on the flip side is molded together so that you can work your whole hand as one unit. The black rubber cushion is removable, and you can place it on either side of the grip. It's an awesome idea, and allows for maximum versatility!
Just for reference, I'm a female, in relatively good shape, but with painfully little forearm strength (my biceps are huge from years of Tae Bo, though!). The 7 lb. Medium/Red grip is do-able, but challenging. The 5 lb. Light/Blue grip, on the other hand, makes for a much easier workout; I oftentimes find myself squeezing it while doing other things, and I only feel it after a number of reps. If you're a female and not in great shape, you'll want to start out with the Light/Blue grips (or even the Extra Light/Yellow ones), and work your way up. Out-of-shape guys can probably get away with the Medium/Red ones to start.Read more ›
- My pinkies were really weak and often got locked in a hyperextended position due to breaking them when I was younger.
- My grip strength for deadlifts was really weak, even for an overhand claw grip.
SInce this lets you exercise each finger individually I am able to focus on strengthening my poor pinkies. I just leave it near my laptop on my desk and squeeze out a few sets 3 times a week.
So far the results have been great. my deadlift strength is much better and no more annoying locked up pinkies.
Will be moving to the next tension level soon.
Can turn it around and workout your thumb, or grip it in different ways to workout your fingers for different situations.
As a musician and rock climber I found this great to build up my hand strength, and keep it up during periods that I had to be away from practice.
Just be careful not to overdo things. Remember, rest and recovery is at LEAST as important as the working out.
