Features

  • WRIST & FOREARM - Wrist roller exercise to quickly improve your grip strength and endurance.
  • FREE WATER WEIGHTS - For a limited time, this offer includes 2 free water weights.
  • USA MADE - Handmade in the USA from sturdy birch wood. Smaller cylinder 24” long x 1” wide and thick cylinders are 6” long x 2.5” wide.
  • SIZE and SHAPE - The different outside diameters (1" and 2.5" cylinder dowels) allows users to focus and strengthen different portions of the forearm, wrist and hand.
  • CORE PRODIGY - From the fitness equipment leader

Description

The muscles in the forearms are divided into two very broad groups, forearm flexors, and forearm extensors. The forearm flexors are the stronger and larger of the two sections and have several important jobs. Finger flexion, in simple terms, means grip strength, of which there are two main types. Isometric grip strength is the ability to hold onto something such as a heavy deadlift. Concentric grip strength, more commonly referred to as crushing grip strength, is the ability to close your hand against resistance, as measured by the Captains of Crush grippers, for example. Unfortunately, the principle of specificity holds true and one type of grip strength doesn't automatically transfer to the other. In other words, isometric grip strength (which is more commonly developed in the gym through holding barbells, handles, etc.) doesn't automatically carry over to crushing grip strength (as measured by ripping phone books, plate pinches, rolling up frying pans, or just crushing your father-in-law's hand when you shake it). The forearm extensors are responsible for extending the wrist. We don't do this movement often against a significant resistance in everyday life, but we frequently have to resist wrist flexion, which uses the extensors. Exercises like reverse biceps curls and dumbbell lateral raises will work the forearm extensors to some degree as important stabilizers. Reverse wrist curls train this muscle group more directly. The wrist roller is by far the best exercise for developing forearm size and strength. It is to your forearms what barbell squats are to your legs, if not better. There's simply no substitute for this exercise, and if you don't have access to one you can easily make one for around five bucks. It is best to start out with less weight (5lbs or less), but with consistency and applying gradual overload, it's possible to work up to some impressive weights. Another huge bonus of the wrist roller is that you must grip the roller to prevent it from slipping in the opposite direction, which works the flexors and develops crushing grip strength. From there, you can either work the extensors by rolling it extension style (you'll be able to go heavier with that form) or continue to hammer the flexors by rolling it flexion style. Rolling the weight down as well as up is ideal, but you might find it's simply not feasible with certain rollers and heavier loads because it'll rip away your skin on the way down. Increasing the rounds is ideal because the weight being lifted is quite light. Even a 2-5 pound increase is a large percentage increase and you'll tap out on your potential quite early if you just add weight. You can simply incorporate the wrist roller into your regular workouts, or if you prefer you can use the following biceps/forearms specific circuit, which should really light you up.

abunda_amazon_reviews I'll start with what's good: There aren't any splinters or anything. The grip feels really smooth. This feels more stable than some other similar products I have tried. The idea of having part of the grip be thin and the other part be thick is clever. The rope is comes with seems pretty solid. I tried it with 60 pounds of weight. There seemed to be a little strain at the middle, but it looked like it would be fine, it could probably even do a little more (10 to 20 pounds.) Now the bad: One of the cylinders came off when I was playing with the water weights (which don't weigh much.) It looked like there was almost no glue used (or very low quality glue.) This seems like a pretty big flaw that could be fixed rather easily. I was able to fix it easily, I just used a lot of wood glue, but it was kind of lame it had to be done in the first place. In the future, they should use either use more glue, better glue, or build it as a solid piece. UPDATE 1-21-18: The other cylinder came off. Managed to fix it with the same wood glue trick, but it's safe to say that aspect of the manufacturing is poor around.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2018;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Cool Product with Flaws;;jchristm77;;;I was hesitant between buying this and the other cheaper versions made with pvc handles.

Its made of solid wood and will stand up much better than the cheaper metal versions I have purchased. I expect that it will last a very long time. The clip is convenient for solid weights as I use this at the gym and dont actually utilize the water weights it comes with (though I just might give it a try). Other models I have used are much less convenient when placing/swapping weights out. Holy cow does this thing force a workout. The different sized dowels allow for different methods of use. I use skinnier for more fluent reps where as utilizing the fat size will really force you to work much harder. On the cheaper metal versions I can easily use a 15 lb. weight over and over again; in fact the others literally snapped in half about 3 months later during use. THIS product gave challenge with just 5lbs. due to the longer (and more heavy duty) rope as well as it being much more thick. Even with the smaller weight I noticed more dependence on using the targeted forearm area versus other models. If you are serious about growing forearm size/strength spend the extra money and grab this. Its just overwhelmingly a superior product in pretty much every comparison.
