Find out why Powerball has been bought by over 4 million people worldwide. Whether you are looking to improve grip strength or wish to keep your hands, wrist and arms healthy Powerball should be essential for every avid climber. Powerball increases grip strength endurance and improves aerobic capacity of the climber’s forearms, which allows you to climb longer and climb harder without getting fatigued or ‘pumped’.

Increase Climbing Endurance & Strength
Powerball’s unique resistance training is revolutionary in the way it strengthens the fingers, hands, wrists & arms. Isometric exercise with Powerball is most effective at building endurance as it replicates climbing resistance in the pressure it puts on your muscles. Spin Powerball at fast speeds for as little as 3 minutes a day and notice the difference in your climbing in under two weeks. Powerball’s isometric exercise engages a far higher percentage of muscle fibres than isotonic exercise (weight training) does, allowing you to achieve strength and endurance gains faster.
Build Grip Strength
Turning your wrists against Powerball’s isometric resistance rapidly increases muscle strength resulting in stronger wrists and a more powerful grip. Spinning Powerball at high speeds for as little as 3 minutes each day is enough to effectively train your forearms and benefit from massively increased grip strength while you climb. Climb higher, climb faster, climb longer with Powerball.
Rehab Injuries Like Climbers Elbow
Powerball is the key to effective injury recovery. Spinning Powerball on a regular basis strengthens muscles, tendons & joints, all while rehabilitating them. This active combination of rehabilitation and strengthening cuts recovery times in half, allowing you to get back to climbing much sooner. Isometric resistance with Powerball is non-impact, meaning it won’t place any strain on sore or damaged muscles while you use it to recover. Rehabilitate injuries such as RSI (repetitive strain injury), carpal tunnel syndrome, climber’s elbow, tendonitis and more.
Stay Protected While Climbing
Climbing is an activity that puts immense pressure on your hands, fingers and wrists – and usually for a long period of time too. That is why it’s so important to actively engage in strength training that will keep your limbs strong and less open to injury on the climbing wall or mountain.
Powerball is about the size of a tennis ball, yet can generate 60 times its own weight in resistance. This powerful little device is all you need to effectively maintain hand and finger health and keep your muscles and joints strong while climbing. Reduce the risk of incurring an RSI injury like climber’s elbow. Simply give Powerball a spin for a couple of minutes every day or use it to warm up/down before and after a climb.
