To compliment our Q & A article about grip-free exercise we’d like to provide some tips on how to do grip-free resistance exercise so as to gain the most benefits.
What is grip-strength and why is it important
Grip strength is the force generated through our forearms, wrists, hands and fingers to hold, carry and pull on objects. Every time we sign our name, drive our car, carry groceries, text our friend or unscrew a jar we should thank our grip-strength.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an occupational hazard that has become common as more jobs require day-long computer use. This syndrome can cause wrist pain and numbness in the fingers. Since many exercises, especially those that strengthen the arms, require strong grip strength, having carpal tunnel syndrome can deter people from exercising. The Gravity Ball’s unique design allows the user to do weighted grip-free resistance exercise™ safely and effectively even if you can’t hold weight or have poor grip strength due to carpal tunnel syndrome or another health problem that impacts your grip strength.
We frequently get asked several questions. Most have to do with what exactly is grip-free resistance exercise and why is it so important? We thought we’d take a few of minutes to define grip-free resistance exercise™ and also to answer some other frequently asked questions.
