Sitting at my desk all day working can get to me.. and it’s always an excuse to not work out, exercise, etc. So, I ended up picking up a pair of “hand grips” to increase grip strength. I used to have a pair when I was younger, but the spring in them wasn’t all that strong and didn’t offer a whole lot of resistance. Plus, they were plastic handles. I don’t like plastic handles.
I found a pair at a large chain retail store – with wooden handles! They are made by Everlast. Oh.. I am really happy with them!
In addition to having lovely wooden handles, the spring is very very strong! It takes a lot of work to squeeze things, and gives the hand muscles a really good work out. In fact, the spring is so strong, my 13 year old son has to exert a lot of effort just to squeeze the handles together, once. And he’s pretty strong for his age. So.. that should tell you just how much resistance they offer.
If you can find them, I highly recommend them! If I get a chance, I’ll take a photo and upload later.
