Powerballs Muscles Trainings

How to Use NSD Powerball To Train Your Muscles?

Enhancing your grip

Hold the Powerball with your fingertips. This way you can train your finger muscles without the risk of straining them too much. The rotor will automatically slow down and the forces will decrease if you reduce the motion and force with which you move the Powerball. This is a good exercise for mountaineers, mountain bikers and pianists.

Exercises for the wrists

Hold the Powerball in a strong grip in your hand and make circular motions with your wrist. This is a good coordination exercise. Try it clockwise and counterclockwise and do the same with your other hand. It could also benefit carpal tunnel syndrome patients and be of aid in wrist revalidation therapy. The gentle movements of the ball can positively influence the healing process and your wrist’s stability should quickly increase.

Exercises for the forearms

Try moving the rotor while keeping your wrist still. Now your forearm muscles will need to generate the force necessary to keep the Powerball in motion. You might even see your muscles move. Powerball is the best training aid to enhance the coordination of your forearm muscles. An exercise with Powerball is an ideal warm-up before doing some serious sports. Regular training with Powerball can also help prevent a tennis arm.

Exercises for the triceps

Start the Powerball, stretch your arm and turn the back of your hand forwards and backwards. Feel those triceps! This is a good exercise for sports requiring a strong upper arm: mountaineering, tennis and rowing.

Exercises for the shoulder

Keep your arm sideways and increase the speed of the rotor. This exercise can ease pain in your shoulders. You can feel the effect even in your neck.

One thing holds for all exercises: in order to keep the Powerball in motion you need a certain ‘feeling’ for the ball. Don’t worry if you don’t have this feeling immediately, it will develop over time.

Warning: Do not exaggerate your training the first day. Your muscles are not used to this kind of exercise and too intense training will make your muscles sore. Give your arms the time to gain the needed strength.
