York Fitness Handgrips
Advantages: Very good for strong hands
Disadvantages: You need to build up your routine
Fitness grips are very useful for adding strength to the hands and arms and are a good thing in particular for sporting purposes for helping aspiring goalkeepers or wicketkeepers. They are also very good for anyone wishing to build up some strength again in their hands or simply to get stronger. I play cricket and do a lot of net bowling in the winter and so strong hands are quite a help when you are trying to bowl as fast as you can or swing the ball. These grips cost around £7 and therefore are very affordable and reasonably priced.
The product consists of spring loaded grips covered by a foam based padding. This padding ensures that they are not uncomfortable or painful to hold. They are indeed well insulated from the metal part of the grips and quite easy to hold and used. You should get used to them very quickly.
One of the good things about these grips is that you can incorporate them into your day to day routine without having to go to a gym or anything. You can even use them watching the telly! If you go carefully at first, you can build up to working these grips for a certain period each day. It's important not to go mad and strain yourself though and you should build up slowy into your routine.
These grips will not give you arms like Popeye but if you use them each day for a short period they will help to make your hands and wrists stronger and in cricket, the sport that I play the most, this is very good for both batting and bowling. Grips like these are also good for goalkeepers and I remember seeing a famous old goalkeeper on the television once, I think it was Ray Clemence, recommend grips for young goalkeepers because they need strong hands.
These grips are very useful for all of this and handy to have around as they can be used at home very easily and don't cost much at all.
Summary: Good product
