Sanford, NC — Oct. 26, 2015 — The importance of grip strength should never be underestimated and Supreme Squeeze spokesperson, Eric Currey, noted that grip strength should be considered a key element of any fitness regimen. The firm’s hand grippers feature 66 lbs. of resistance for improving the muscles in the fingers, hands, wrists and forearms.
“Even athletes tend to overlook grip strength and the role it plays in everyday activities,” said Currey. “Grip strength naturally declines over time and since it’s a slow process, most people don’t even realize that it’s happening.”
People use grip strength to varying degrees every time they pick up an object, turn a jar lid or catch an item that’s thrown. Grip strength is especially important for athletes and those engaging in extreme physical fitness workouts. It affects how they grip an overhead bar, perform a deadlift, row a boat or use a kettlebell.
Hand grippers are an effective and low-cost method of maintaining grip strength at any age. Supreme Squeeze fashions its hand grippers with foam handles, allowing individuals to exercise as long as they want in comfort. Gripping objects is a complex action that utilizes multiple muscle groups and hand grippers exercise all the muscles in the fingers, hands, wrists and forearms, even the smaller and weaker groupings.
While regular use of hand grippers strengthens the muscles, it also reduces the risk of injury and they’re an effective means of rehabilitation if an injury does occur. The use of hand grippers is a type of strength training that’s not well understood by many people and is often overlooked by athletes.
Aging doesn’t have to mean the beginning of a weak handshake or the inability to perform everyday tasks. Strengthening the grip improves dexterity, coordination and endurance when working out or performing everyday jobs around the home. Exercising for grip strength improves nerve health and blood flow to the muscles.
The use of hand grippers is a backbone of physical training for athletes and anyone who wants to maintain hand, wrist and forearm vigor. Featuring 66 lbs. of resistance, Supreme Squeeze hand grippers are sold in sets of two. Each purchase comes with bonus materials highlighting training tips and exercises to help individuals build and maintain a superior level of grip strength at any age.
