One of the things I like to do is get my hands on some of the pieces of equipment out there and go over them, looking at their Pro’s, Con’s, advantages, disadvantages, etc, and shooting review videos. Over the course of the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to review several cool pieces and I have several more to do once I get the time.
For now, I want to post them here in case you missed them when I uploaded them originally, plus I will add in a few more details about each one.
Fat Gripz Extreme
I know you have heard of Fat Gripz. You can’t go onto a site with Google AdWords and not see them advertise these days. However, you may not have seen that FG also is coming out with an extension of their product line called “Extremes” that are even larger in diameter, making them an even bigger challenge for your Grip Strength.
I recently got comments on my YouTube channel asking what the cool piece of equipment was we were using in one of the contests. It is the Wrist Developer from World of Grip. Their design is being overhauled and I hope to be getting more of them in for re-sale in time for the holidays. Leave a comment below if you are interested in picking one up.
From the Manus company, this is a piece designed specifically for training the extensor muscles. This is very similar to another piece on the market, but this one works MUCH better than the other one. I was happy to see it function properly, but with its strength level, it is just too light for me. I will stick with my #84 Rubber Bands.
There are still more reviews to come. Companies contact me quite often. The next piece I will shoot is called the Perform RX Ball Security System. Pretty cool stuff, this is a piece of strapping that attaches directly to a football or basketball and allows you to train for grip strength using sport-specific equipment in similar fashion to the way the equipment is used on the field & court.
That is coming soon. For now, make sure to subscribe to my channel and don’t forget to sign up for email updates.
All the best in your training.
