HOW IT WORKS
The wrist (1) and finger (2) flexors are the longer muscles of the forearm and wrist (extrinsic).
These muscles lie in the forearm and their tendon components cross the wrist and attach to the bones to move the fingers and wrist.
Exercise these for greater grip power and endurance.
The smaller muscles of the hand (intrinsic), lie at the base of the thumb (3), small finger (4) and across the hand (5 & 6).
They provide the finer movements, coordination, and control of the fingers and do not cross the wrist.
The GRIPMASTER works to improve strength, endurance and coordination of all the muscles within the hand and most muscles and tendons in the forearm.
The exercises provided are not tailored to any one specific sport. They are designed to enhance and maintain the physical attributes and general health of the athlete’s hands, regardless of sport.
Place the middle of the fingers on the buttons with the fingertips wrapped over the top. Positioning the hook of the ergonomic palm bar over the web space between the thumb and index finger, flex the thumb and all fingers toward the center of the unit as if making a fist. Strengthens fingers, thumb, wrist and forearm for a firm grip.
Lace fingertips on individual buttons and position ergonomic palm bar with the hook over the web space between the thumb and index finger. Keeping fingertips slightly bent, flex all fingers toward the center of the unit. Strengthens longer muscles in forearm and wrist while stretching smaller muscles in hand for greater motion and endurance.
Place the hook of the ergonomic palm bar on the inside of the bent index finger. With the tip of the thumb slightly bent, flex the thumb on the first button. Strengthens thumb and index finger for greater stability and co-ordination. (For increased resistance, flex the thumb tip on two buttons at the same time.)
Loosely hold the unit vertically with the buttons toward the fingers and the hook of the ergonomic palm bar positioned over the web space between the thumb and index finger. With the middle of the index finger, press the second button as if squeezing a trigger. Isolates the index finger to enhance strength and coordination. (This can also be done using the above position and the tip of the index finger.)
Lace the tip of the thumb on the center of the ergonomic palm bar. Position the finger to be exercised on one of the center buttons. Keeping both tips slightly bent, flex the thumb and the finger being exercised toward the center of the unit at the same time. Strengthens specific fingers, thumb, smaller hand muscles and forearm for greater control and endurance. Can be done with one or more fingers.
Remove ergonomic palm bar. Stand unit upside down on a table. Rest the forearm of the wrist to be exercised in the other hand. Position the bar across the palm and press the bar in a downward motion while flexing only the wrist joint. Strengthens wrist and forearm muscles.
It is suggested that in addition to the above flexing exercises, fingers be stretched in the opposite direction to complement your exercise program.
Like any other piece of exercise equipment, strain, muscle fatigue or other injury can occur from the use of this product. Start slowly with few repetitions as strength is increased over time. This product should be used moderately and with extreme caution. If you experience any pain or discomfort during or after use, discontinue and consult your physician immediately.
