The Best Hand and Finger Exercises Require Balance

The best hand and finger exercise routines take into consideration the balance of all 18 hand muscles.

Nine muscles close the hand (i.e. the ‘grip-action’ muscles – the flexors and adductors – located on the front of the finger, thumb, hand, wrist & elbow) and equally, nine muscles open the hand (i.e. the ‘grip-stabilizer’ muscles – the extensors and abductors – located on the back of the finger, thumb, hand, wrist & elbow). If you expect hand strength, speed & stamina for best performance in you sport, musical pursuit or work environment, you need a hand strengthener that is diverse11.

Do Your Hand and Finger Exercises Strengthen AND Balance Your Muscles?

Traditional ‘grip-only’ hand and finger exercises take into consideration only the 9 muscles that close the hand, with no regard for the KEY ‘grip-stabilizer’ muscles. This error will eventually lead to hand muscle imbalance. Hand muscle imbalances first lead to performance limitations – that may not be noticed – but eventually to RSI’s (repetitive stress injuries) like carpal tunnel syndrome, DeQuervain’s Syndrome (tenosynovitis), Dupuytren’s contracture (Blackberry Thumb), tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, to name a few. It is the most common muscle imbalance in the body due to common repetitive daily habits, poor workplace ergonomics, and poor traditional understanding of hand and finger exercise. At doczac Enterprises, we strongly preach a lifestyle of maximum strength & stability, as opposed to symptomatic response. Handmaster Plus was designed be a simple, sensible and complete hand health habit to add to your daily routine.

Repetitive Gripping in Society

Daily repetitive gripping for most people today is a given – whether it is at work, during sports or music, on the computer, smart phone or video-gaming, or at hobby. Whether you know it or not, the long- and short-term health of your hands, wrists, carpal tunnels, forearms & elbows is at stake. Poor (or no) hand muscle training exercises directly affects the balance & stability of the fingers, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel, forearm & elbow. Chronic wear and tear of small areas of our joints (without proper circulation from full ROM exercise) can lead to arthritis. RSI’s are currently costing individuals and industry tens of billions of dollars each year in therapy and work/play time lost. The lack of a proper ergonomic hand and finger exercise program is causing epidemic hand and finger muscle imbalance conditions in our societies (carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis, Dupuytren’s contracture, etc.).

Handmaster Plus hand exerciser provides a complete, convenient & cost-effective hand and finger exercise program that follows proper natural biomechanics and maximizes the strength, balance and circulation to all finger, hand and lower arm tissues, stimulates all peripheral nerves to the hand and prevents finger, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel & elbow injuries. Easy to use. Easy to understand. Fully portable. Available in 3 strengths as well as a complete 3-pack (all strengths included) (see STORE)
