6. Wrist Finger Trainer
The simulator, which most of all fits the definition of “pocket”, because in size and weight it is slightly larger than the silicone bracelet, which is distributed in various fast food chains. However, despite the seeming simplicity and cheapness, it is this simulator that perfectly pumps the fingers of the hand, each phalanx and tendons of the hand. It helps even experienced athletes recover from injuries or beginners who seem to have the strength in the muscles of the shoulder girdle to lift a certain weight, but have problems with grip.
What they write in the reviews: a dense elastic band, a good expander, which is very difficult to stretch out of habit. Several load options can be ordered from the seller, for example, 5 or 10 kilograms. Most of all, I was pleased with the review where the simulator was bought for the child in order to strengthen his fingers for playing the violin. Quite resourceful, isn’t it?
7. Finger trainer
Another funny thing, in the description of which it is directly indicated in a special Chinese-Russian: piano, guitar, finger trainer. People who have played these instruments confirm: yes, such a thing will really be useful, since it is a good substitute for a keyboard or guitar frets. After ordering on the site, you will receive a small rectangle with four buttons-keys for fingers of the hand on springs and a silicone pad under the palm for a comfortable grip. Buttons are pressed – fingers swing – skill and speed of the game increase.
What they write in the reviews: it is convenient that the effort on each finger is adjusted separately. The pressing force is not so great – it is suitable for children under 16 years of age, therefore it is suitable only for those who are studying or starting to study at a music school, as well as for the weaker sex. In fact, the reviews are full of information that this simulator was purchased specifically for children, and the alternative use is recovery from injuries.
8. Exercise machine-handle “Power of the forearm”
A simulator that looks so brutal that it looks like a prop from Star Wars. This formidable device is capable of regulating the load and, thanks to the steel cable, pumps the grip strength, fingers, forearm and hand. The comfortable ergonomic design allows you to do exercises in different planes and at different angles, and for athletes who work with iron barbells, dumbbells or weights, this machine can provide invaluable services for warm-up, cool down or pumping the muscles of the forearm.
What they write in the reviews: very high quality of the product. Buyers pay attention to the steel cable and load regulator, which make the product practical and durable. However, as indicated in the reviews, such a simulator will definitely not do such an athlete, but for every day it is what you need. Someone, on the contrary, writes that the tension is too light, however, in his opinion, this can be easily corrected.
9. Kamal simulator
A device that, according to the manufacturer, is capable of pumping everything in general – from the hands and forearm to the press and pectoral muscles. The design represents two long plastic V-shaped handles connected by a metal plate, a kind of pruner without a cutting part. Holding it at different angles and on bent or outstretched arms, you can really achieve pumping of certain muscles of the arms, but about the press and chest – here you should try or apply some secret Chinese techniques. In the questions and answers to the product, there is rather contradictory information: someone writes that the expander is good and not weak, and someone broke it in the very first use.
What they write in the reviews: the main conclusion from the reviews is a good and high-quality product, but very weak in strength. About a dozen reviews say that the effort that must be applied to work with this simulator is suitable for either children or girls for fitness. Or the same application remains – as a therapeutic simulator for recovery from injuries.
10. LCD digital dynamometer
Finally, our top includes a device that will assess your progress and measure the strength of the grip and hand, displaying the results on the display. The spring-loaded anatomical handle for “perfect grip” will fit any hand, and the customizable device (there is a menu) can be set to training mode and used as a normal expander. It looks very solid and soundly, there are different color options, the only drawback is the lack of batteries in the kit.
What they write in the reviews: an excellent power meter that fits comfortably in the hand, and the menu is easy to understand. Buyers from different countries attach a photo, judging by which everything corresponds to the description of the seller and does not cause any complaints, and only in one review the user broke the pen. The product rating is 4.8 out of 5 and a large number of supplemented reviews inspire confidence in the product and the manufacturer, which is also favored by fast delivery.
