Thread: grip master.
04-04-2004, 03:18 AM #1
got a new toy today. a gripmaster, a grip/finger/forearm stregthening tool that have individual spring for each finger. i have used other ones but they only have one big spring and that wasn't as good as some of the fingers can be shadowed by others.
i got the low and high tension ones. i have been playing with it today. even the low tension one is pretty hard to do. now my forearm muscles are a bit sore.
oh, and i found it in REI, a popular sports store. it was in the wall climbing section. i have tried others ones like the ball and other putty ones, so far i think this one give the most complete strength training.

kwun, don't practice too hard, you don't want to crush your handle
Wall climbing? lol, I can never think about something that connects badminton to that thing......

U know... when you have something like that just to work out the fingerscuz of badminton... it's quiet obvious that ur an addict
good job Kwun on the excellent discovery

I bought one of these about a year and a half ago. It really does burn your forearm if you try to contract it rapidly as fast as you can for even half a minute.

Have you try Dynaflex? Great workout for your forearm.

A poor man like me would have to settle for playing against the wall for my finger power workout

I still can't start it without the string. I find the gyro ball to be okay for people starting into forearm training. To increase forearm strength further, one would resort to other forms of exercises.

When I am on the move... I would use a squish/stress ball for workout. When relaxing infront of the computer, I would use those Bao Ding Iron balls for dexterity (those metallic balls you see bad guys in old kung fu movies used).

That grip master is also used by us guitar players. Funny, I'd never even thought of it in the badminton context.

the only thing i can use at work is the squishy/stress ball. any other thing like the gyro/gripmaster makes too much noise for a quiet cubical environment.

I have a question on the Powerball device exercise machine thingy for your wrist. lol yea long name. I think it is called a Powerball But the real name of the ball you hold in your wrist is Dyna-Flex and you hold it in your wrist and roatate it around using only your wrist.Anyways i was wondering does it work? Did anyone find an improvement on their game in any kind of way liek better clears or stronger smashes. Anything! i just bought one and wanted know if it really works because i want ot improve my smashes dearly! I read in the past post about the " Proper way of smashing" and i do workout and i am strong because i use to wrestle. But i can not SMASH FOR CRAP! hope these device does me wonders!

Ahhh another wayward soul looking for the perfect gizmo to improve <drop/smash/clear/smash> (take one or all).
Get a partner/feeder, practise your smash with quarter, half power. Once you lock in the technique, then add power. Repeat twice a week maybe 15 mins per session.

I'm playing piano for finger power. As well as for enjoying nice music
Realistically though, I hold the racket very loosely; don't have grab on to the racket handle tightly, even when I smash. Is it really necessary to train fingers?
