From the tips of the fingers, into the hand, through the wrist joint, up along the forearm into the bicep and culminating in the shoulder, there isn’t a single muscle or tendon in the arm that escapes the smooth but punishing inertial resistance generated by a fast spinning Powerball.
It’s like a rapidly spinning vortex in your hand; the faster the engine spins, the more inertial resistance it generates, working your arm harder and harder until your muscles are burning and screaming for you to stop. And because it’s pure isometric resistance, Powerball engages almost the entire group of fibers in each muscle that it’s exercising, ensuring that you’ll reach fatigue in a much shorter time frame than with traditional exercise methods (in fact – less than 30 seconds if you really accelerate the Powerball’s rotor speed)
Put down your dumbbells and take a fresh look at the way you exercise – small balls really can build arms of steel.
Isometric exercise is ruthlessly efficient and will instantly engage almost the entire mass of the muscle being exercised. The faster you spin the harder it works, leaving the arm of even the most highly trained body builder or athlete pumped and ripped in less than one minute flat.
Isometric exercise will typically stress the MUSCLE as opposed to the TENDON (attached to that muscle) and therefore Powerball can be beneficial in helping to strengthen, rehabilitate and train around injuries caused by traditional isometric weight lifting exercises (scar tissue around the elbow joint for example)
Everyone’s fitness goals are different. 98% of women want to keep their arms toned and shapely but don’t want to build lean muscle. Powerball’s unique variable resistance isometric workouts allow women to do exactly that spin slower and longer to give sharp, firm toning of the triceps (“the dreaded bingo wings”), tightening the muscle but without any undesired size/mass gain
Reading through the reviews, what this little gadget claimed it could do sounded too good to be true. But as it was so much cheaper than some of the therapies I had been having, I decided to take a chance and buy one. Within 48hrs of the Powerball arriving, my problems were already getting noticeably better. After a just week the RSI had disappeared entirely. This was after a solid 8 months of problems. All this was back in 2008 – I am delighted to report that my Powerball continues to keep the RSI problem at bay. If I hadn’t discovered Powerball, I’m not sure I would still be playing viola for a living. You can imagine how much this means to me, thank you so much!”
One day I thought what can I lose and told my son “teach me how to use it”. Those were the wisest words I’ve said in a long time – I couldn’t let go this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Powerball to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Powerball from that day regularly and I haven’t had tendinitis again. I’m so very grateful and always tell everybody about how I got better.
Thanks for giving me my wrist back, I really appreciate that and hope you like my little story.
I used it regularly and it really has given strength back and reduced my pain considerably so I’m delighted with the outcome. From time to time I will get a small twinge in the left arm as though it’s about to go the same way but using Powerball keeps it sorted. It’s all taken only a few weeks so it’s a fantastic result, I suffered for months before this.
I’m now about to enter my 4th year in my desk job and haven’t had any complications from repetitive stress or CTS. I owe the fact that I’m not wearing a brace to my Powerball.
After the first week of using it, I could notice a definite improvement in how my injured wrist felt. I now regularly use my Powerball to maintain the strength and range-of-motion of both of my wrists and hands.
As a physiotherapist, I can appreciate the way a Powerball targets the imbalances I have developed in my forearm muscles from working and climbing and the fact that I can exercise this with no compression through my wrists is massively beneficial. I use my Powerball three or four times a week and it allows me to work with less discomfort in my predominantly ‘hands-on’ physio practice (a physio’s wrists and thumbs tend to suffer from a lot of wear-and-tear). It also helps my hand strength and endurance for climbing, and I have no doubt that continuing use will allow me to keep working in my job as well as being able to continue climbing for many more years. Cheers,
So I was escorted to the hospital and doctors patched me up, also said I would have to undergo therapy. In therapy there were the usual massages and exercises, but there was also one psychical therapist who had a slightly different approach. She handed me a green Powerball and instructed on how to use it.
There were 3 other patients in therapy with similar injuries to mine and I’d say I probably healed 50% quicker. That green Power Ball literally gave me my arm back, one of the greatest inventions I’ve ever invested in. Thank you.
This was a worry but I didn’t wanted to have surgery, so I started looking for other forms of exercise that could help with my problem. I found about you guys and I purchased a powerball, although doubting it would help much.
Well, after a few months of daily exercising, the numbness in my fingers decreased a lot! There are now almost 3 years since I’m using Powerball (not every day, I admit :D) but the numbness has almost disappeared. I still have some small problems with my wrist, but only if I exercise too much. I recently started climbing and I can tell there is a huge difference. Before Powerball I couldn’t open a bottle of soda with my right hand and now I climb on the wall almost without problems :)) Thank you guys!
Sadly my left hand is still weaker than right/is atrophied, but it isn’t so noticeable as it would be without Powerball and I’m proud I can achieve 10k rpm with my left hand. So thank you for making an awesome product that helps people!
I’m sure if it wasn’t for the benefits of working out with Powerball I would be sitting on the sidelines watching. Thanks again.
I was 100% disappointed; the summer season was starting over. I really wanted to get back on my board, when my friend Franco and his PowerBall come into the scene. He provided me with his power ball, he taught my how to use it and he told me “use it every day and you will be OK doing what you like”. Totally skeptical I did as he told me. And after 2 weeks I felt comfortable with my wrist and able to use the PowerBall longer and longer. And then that weekend I try to get back to wakeboard. I made it.
Thank you so much for achieving to me what any Rehab center did not. Thank you for giving me back my two loves.
After the first time using it, I had less numbness in my hands. After a couple days of using it, the numbness was COMPLETELY gone! Not only am I playing guitar again, but I am also learning piano now as well. None of this would be possible if I didn’t have Powerball. It is truly an amazing device and I can not express how thankful I am to have bought one.
