About The Product
The Lonsdale wrist grips are a pack of two wrist grip gym/exercise equipment. They have a foam black handle without grooves.
They are inexpensive and I have seen them available for around £1.50.
My Opinions & Experiences
I have owned these for four years and were bought with the intention to help improve forearm, hand and wrist strength for my tennis playing and just for general health/fitness (always good to have a good grip).
Before using these during playing tennis in particular I would often feel my wrist and forearm ache after playing for any prolonged period of time. I have always lifted weights so while my biceps and forearms were strong to a degree I knew my forearm and wrist would be much stronger if I started using the wrist grips I had previously seen around. I bought a pair and started using them immediately, the great thing about them is you can use them while watching tv etc, you don't have to set aside part of your gym time to using them. After about a month I felt the benefit and over the years they have improved my tennis playing allowing me to hit a harder shot and to play for longer without pain.
They take some getting used to but after a while you will be gripping them without even noticing you are doing so. They are comfortable to use, the foam handle ensures you don't end up with blisters.
I can't compare them to other brands as I have only used these ones but after four years of use they haven't broken up at all, the foam handle is still intact and they have done a world of good to my forearm, wrist and hand strength.
To summarise they are a great value pair of wrist grips, comfortable to use with foam handles, they have lasted a long time and will no doubt do wonders to your wrist, hands and forearms. I highly recommend them to all, especially if you play a sport using your hands.
Summary: Great value, work well, highly recommended
