BENEFITS of TRAINING
Forearm and elbow pain is common among people who participate in repetitive activities that primarily use the FLEXOR muscles of the forearm. Weightlifters, rock climbers, mechanics and musicians (just to name a few) are far more likely to develop Repetitive Strain Injury than most people. In fact, tendonitis and carpal tunnel are some of the MOST common injuries among weightlifters due to the strain caused by the repetitive movements under heavy loads!
- Injury Prevention
- Increased Grip Strength
- Balance Forearm Musculature
- Stabilize Wrist & Elbow Joints
- Improve Muscle Tone
- Faster Injury Recovery
Extensor exercises are recommended by professionals for rehabilitation of these conditions but ideally you would do yourself a HUGE favor and avoid injury in the first place! Or at least prevent an acute case from becoming chronic.
You may still be wondering, WHAT causes this nagging pain??? Conditions like Carpal Tunnel and Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) are the result of OVERUSE and also NEGLECT of the TWO primary muscle groups in your hands, forearm and wrist; specifically, overuse of your flexor muscles and underuse of your extensors.
The FLEXORS in your arm are activated when you squeeze and the EXTENSORS activate when you open your hand. Lifting weights requires you to repeatedly engage ONLY your flexors, causing a musculature imbalance in our forearms which over time leads to strained muscles and tendons followed by pain in the surrounding joints. If you don’t take some time off at this point (often months) it can progress into a debilitating and chronic case of carpal tunnel or tendonitis.
THAT’S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE YOUR EXTENSORS!
The GOOD NEWS is that training with Finger Exerciser is a simple solution to the problem that can prevent pain, stabilize your wrist and elbow, improve musculature and make you more resistant to injury by strengthening and balancing the underdeveloped muscle groups of your forearm and promoting blood flow to the area which stimulates healing.
Our therapeutic Finger Exerciser bands come in 3 resistance levels: Light Blue, Sky Blue & BLUE (heavy) to provide you with your ideal training level.
