Flexbar for Tennis Elbow Recovery
So I picked up the highest resistance one of these (blue) to work on my frustration with life with my hands as a mechanical therapy device. After destroying a lot of things with my hands like a Labrador with their mouth, this seems like the one that's going to hold up to my level of abuse. I'm 6'3" 245lb and built to flip tires and cut wood. But this stupid thing is going to outlast me.
On a comical note, this thing's name is "Papa Smurf" at my place because of the material, shape and color of the object. The heft is similar to that of some adult toys with solid core, but the appearance is much more appropriate for the general public. This lead to a lot of inappropriate comedy at the new years party and jokes about coconut oil. I'm glad to say that it washed up easily after everything.
The texture is really easy to keep a hold of even if powders are applied like the baby powder that my 2 year old got into. Of note, when this thing is coated with baby powder it leaves interesting marks on the couch when it's rolled. I don't advise giving this item to a 2 year old . . . ever. Turn out Papa Smurf has some heft to him and will leave a mark even when a 2 year old is swinging.
Either way, this object is a really good time.
Picture for scale against a normal can of soda for width and most of a roll of shop towels for height.
Simple to use. A good addition to your workout for forearms, biceps and shoulders. Wrist strength as well. Only adds a few minutes to my workout. I have the red one (Medium) and workout regularly, but am not would you would call buff. My 95 year old mother-in-law has the yellow one (light) and likes it. I have tried her yellow and it is way too easy! It's for beginner workouts. If you work out your upper body a lot, you would need the strongest one.
My doctor told me I have tennis elbow and recommended the FlexxBar by Dmoose. I have been using it for 2 weeks and my elbow is starting to feel a lot better (ie: stronger). I got the medium flex - there are others and I may try a tighter one if I need to later. So far I am satisfied with the product!
This hand exerciser is small and light, easy to take with you so eliminating any excuse not to exercise. I use it a few times a day and my fingers, hands, wrists and arms get a workout. I do what feels comfortable for me. I find myself using it while watching TV or even lying in bed.... Kinda like a fidget spinner with a purpose
This bar is easy to get a grip on and works great to engage all of the muscles of the arms. This is a great tool for athletes to strengthen their grip and gain stability with arm muscles. I twist each a hand in an opposite direction until fatigued. It can really enhance power and performance for many athletes.
