Powerball for Climbing


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.

“When I was 24, I started feeling an acute pain in my right wrist especially when I tried to exercise. My doctor told me I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and would need surgery.

I started looking for other forms of exercise that could help with my problem and purchased a Powerball®. After a few months of use, the numbness in my fingers decreased a lot. It’s now been 3 years since I’m using Powerball® and the numbness has disappeared. I recently started climbing and can feel 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!”

I’m a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist who also enjoys rock climbing. 7 years ago I fractured my distal radius, as well as damaging the TFCC of my right wrist. After doing some basic rehab on myself, I was able to continue working but experienced regular aching, pain and clicking in my right wrist.

Then I tried Powerball®. After the first week, I noticed definite improvement in how my injured wrist felt and now use it to maintain strength and range-of-motion of both of my wrists and hands. As a physiotherapist, I can appreciate the way Powerball® helps my hand strength and endurance and targets imbalances I have developed in my forearm muscles from working and climbing – the fact that I can exercise these with no compression through my wrists is massively beneficial.

Very addictive and once you get the hang of it (in the first 5 minutes), you really can feel it working on your muscles. Brilliantly usable whatever you’re doing. Love it!

I can’t begin to say how great this product is, it has so many different techniques for building up wrist strength, bicep strength, pectoral strength and the health benefits like RSI.
I tried it out for so long when I got it I took a bit of skin off of my finger! but stuck a plaster on and in the first hour and a half I reached a speed of 10131.

All in all its great fun and addictive and with the benefits of increasing strength/rehabilitation, you can use it anywhere while reading a book, watching TV, running etc.


5 Star Review

Well I would just like to say WOW!!!! it took me about five or ten minutes to get it to work and afer that I was hooked. I can definately feel the difference in my muscles which feels great by the way. I need to build up my strength as I am a mechanical assembler and do a lot of heavy lifting. I’m sixty years old and hope to benifit greatly from the exercises. I am a woman who likes to keep my shape and still have fun exercising, Powerball is doing all of this for me. Watching the saphire white light when the ball is spining increases the excitement and of course trying to beat my score is adictive. I can’t wait to show it to my friends, by the way I never did grow up 🙂

I find that Powerball works very efficiently to both strengthen grip and rehab arm conditions for sportspeople and patients. Additionally, I find Powerspin to be highly beneficial for shoulder and upper back rehabilitation.

Here are two main reasons to get one of these. Strengthen your hand and arms. The second? To have fun!

If you’re looking for a way to strengthen your arm and hand, Powerball will definitely help you with this. Specifically, you have to hold on to it, so it works the gripping muscles of the hand. It also works the wrist muscles, because you have to rotate your wrist to keep the motion going. Lastly, your biceps will get a workout as well, because your biceps muscle helps turn your palm up (supination), which is one of the motions involved in keeping the gyro spinning.

If you are looking get the above muscles stronger and in better shape, then the Powerball will certainly benefit you. Because it can spin progressively faster and faster as you get stronger, the Powerball can provide you with a progressive resistance of sorts to get you stronger and stronger over time.

Now the second reason to get a Powerball, for fun, really needs little explanation- it’s just too much fun seeing how fast you can get this thing spinning! Perhaps the only non-fun thing about it is that it does take a little practice to get the hang of it, and when you’re starting out and can’t keep it spinning, well, that can get a little frustrating. However, it doesn’t take long, and one thing that helped me in the beginning was to keep my elbow straight as I was practicing getting the technique down.

All-in-all a cool device and useful tool- don’t think twice and give it a try!



I am a cycling instructor and travel everywhere by bicycle, so when I broke my wrist in a fall from my bike, I was devastated. Thankfully, A&E were able to manipulate my bones back into position without recourse to pins or plates.

A friend recommended Powerball® and I started with VERY gentle exercise for a couple of minutes, building up strength gradually. The physiotherapy I was given by the NHS was good but basic and my therapist was delighted with the progress I made as a result of Powerball®. My wrist is now back to almost full strength but I still use my Powerball®. I am amazed that something so simple can go from gentle exercise to really powerful exercise as the muscles and tendons start to regain their strength.

Perfect for all racket sports. Add more power to your shot.

Powerball is an excellent strength training device for all racquet sports, allowing you to get a little more power into your shots. As a physics teacher, I also find it to be a great teaching tool as I talk to my students about centripetal force and rotational inertia!

You will notice a difference in days.

“The repetitive movements of tennis regularly result in wrist, elbow and shoulder strains. 3 years ago one of our players began using a Powerball to help rehabilitate a wrist injury. I was highly sceptical about what this spinning ball could do and so was well surprised when it helped greatly speed their recovery. Since then we’ve been using Powerball for both rehabilitation and strengthening of our player’s arms and wrists.

It takes a little practice to get the movement right but once you perfect the technique and follow a simple programme you will definitely notice a positive difference in days.”

On the 8th of March last year, I tore a Rotator Cuff tendon in my right shoulder whilst playing squash. Before that day I was competing in long distance open water Masters swimming events, playing squash and golf regularly and loving it. I have seen many physiotherapists and consultant osteopaths, had an MRI scan and purchasing numerous products design to help me cure my shoulder. I’ve spent many hours exercising with bands.

However, after nearly eight weeks of using an amber Powerball 250 Hz Regular, I am convinced it has done the trick. I’ve recently bought a Vortex that I’m also very pleased with. I use it for about 30 minutes every day and plan to continue until the day I’m pushing up daisies.

I am now slowly but surely swimming again and playing squash and golf. I’ve been a sad man during the time I could not play my sports. My Powerball has made me a happy man. Sounds very corny but is very very true.
