BrianMcCallen.com: Get a Grip with Prohands

Certainly the best grip for golf is both soft and strong. Think of Ernie Els. Soft, flexible hands promote a fluid swing. Picture Geoff Ogilvy. According to the company’s literature, the hands are critical to golf excellence because they stabilize the shaft for a smooth, consistent swing. The wrists, meanwhile, multiply the acceleration of the club head towards impact.

I found the contraption to be well-designed and very clever. Imagine a spring-loaded trumpet with four keys (one for each finger) instead of three. The Pro model has a double set of superior steel springs, an ergonomic palm bar and soft santoprene finger pads for added comfort. Click Here to read the full article

The Gripmaster is a spring-loaded, hand-held strengthening device that effectively strengthens fingers to forearms. Rubber balls and spring grips serve a similar purpose, but only the patented Gripmaster has movable pads to isolate the fingers. Finger strength helps control the club during the swing.

Instead of squeezing a rubber ball or V-grip, this spring-loaded device allows you to exercise each finger individually.

Complete Handbook of Coaching Wide Receivers: Special Equipment for Receiver Work

The Gripmaster is a tool that exercises each finger individually. It strengthens fingers, hands, and even forearms. Catching problems often exist because the receiver is palming the ball, and this equipment strengthens fingers so they can play a bigger role in catching. It also helps psychologically as it builds awareness of the fingers (not just hands) as a key to catching. The Gripmaster offers a placebo effect as well. When a receiver is in a slump, buy him one as a gift, and tell him it has worked magic for other guys whose catching has suddenly gone bad. In so many cases, receivers have improved quickly and dramatically once they started using this tiny piece of equipment. It has brought more than one Texas State Champion football player out of a catching slump.

Prohands has set its sights on the hockey world. "PRO is the go-to devise for building hand, wrist and forearm strength to improve stick and puck control as well as shot accuracy," said Prohands executive account manager. "Working the fingers individually creates hand endurance and strengthens the ligaments that run up through the wrist and forearm. And if you're working out each of those ligaments your strength will increase. Prohands is the only exerciser that allows you to do that." After consulting with several hand therapists, trainers and health experts, Prohands developed a set of 11 unique exercises, including the finger tip pinch, tricep press and the wrist flex, in order to maximize hand, wrist and forearm strength development.

This pocketsize unit provides a resistance workout that allows you to exercise each finger individually. The Gripmaster comes in four models.

Gripmaster is the only grip to allow fingers to squeeze independently, as if on a trumpet. Likes: You can work each finger individually - or all of them together like a normal handgrip. The company’s claim that it will increase speed and dexterity - in addition to grip strength - seems valid. Different tensions are available: Black, red, and blue correspond to hard, moderate, and easiest. Comfortable palm-shaped rubber handle. Dislikes: None

It’s been 13 years since the advent of the best-selling GRIPMASTER, the individual-finger-strengthening finger/forearm trainer you’ll find on the cashboards and in the cragging packs of well, most climbers. Now it gets an update even more in tune with the needs of us gripeurs: the PROHANDS PRO ($21.95, prohands.net), available in three tensions: Medium (7lbs); Heavy (9lbs); and Extra Heavy (11lbs). Building on the Gripmaster model, the Pro adds a larger profile, ergo palm bar, and wear resistant steel springs. The device is fun, and the pump more wicked than Skeletor; I used my Heavy squeezanator for post-training mega-workout and to warm up at the cold October cliffs.

Heading down the boulevard from El Paso Hueco Tanks, a car full of psyched climbers warm up their fingers with Gripmaster Pro. It's a medium tension grip that is equivalent to 7lbs of tension. It's hard, no doubt, but a light squeeze does the trick to get the juices flowing. The Extra Heavy, shown here, is in the glove compartment. That comes later. It's a different kind of monster. With 11lbs of tension, it's capable of building hands, wrists and forearms of steel. It ain't the warm-up or opening act, that's for sure...unless you happen to be Fred Nicole.

TIPS: The Secret to Better Subject Control - Grip Strength Is Key

Having strong hands is an important attribute which makes sense. Clearly, "subject control" is all about laying your mitts on someone and not lettig go until he's in the position where you want him - so a strong grip is obviously a good thing... Available in three difficulty levels, the Prohands unit lets you isolate each finger and develop them separately. What I really like the Prohands for is that I can mimic a good grip on a handgun and practice isolating trigger finger pulls without squeezing harder (that is 'milking') the unit with my other fingers.

Shooters need strong hands with independently controllable fingers to hold the handgun steady, prevent it from shifting in their grip under recoil and to manage smooth trigger control at the same time. The standard V-device does increase raw gripping poser in some of the forearm muscles, but it overly stresses those muscles while neglecting the others. Additionally, fine muscle control in the hand and fingers is completely ignored. Prohands has been selling their hand exercisers for years. These products are in use by many in a variety of sports fields, a number of government alphabet agencies, as well as folks like you and me. They've just recently introduced their PRO series, and they are rightly proud of their new flagship line. The beauty of their underlying design is that each finger works individually since each is working against its own isolated tension spring. With more conventional exercisers, the stronger fingers do the work, and the weaker fingers go along for the ride, getting very little in the way of a strength-building-workout.
