Build Grip Strength for a Powerful Swing
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 strength and endurance as it replicates the pressure a hard hit of a ball would put on your muscles. Spin Powerball at fast speeds for as little as 3 minutes a day and notice the difference in your swing 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. Feel stronger, less stiff and more mobile on the court – it’s as simple as Powerball.
Enhance Flexibility & Range of Motion
Injury can leave the elbow joint feeling stiff and sore, so it’s important to keep the elbow flexible and mobile during rehabilitation. Spinning Powerball for only a couple of minutes a day will significantly improve flexibility and range of motion in the upper limbs. From fingertip to shoulder, Powerball rapidly loosens the muscles by encouraging the circulation of oxygen. Even at slow speeds, exercise with Powerball will significantly loosen up the elbow joint by encouraging the production of synovial fluid – a natural lubricant.
If you are suffering from injury, Powerball opens the door to flexible and active muscles once more. Following our physio-designed Powerball exercises will take your arm through a full 360-degree circumduction (range of motion). These rehabilitation exercises will not only strengthen your joints and surrounding muscles, but they will also help to reduce stiffness and increase overall flexibility.
Prevent RSI like Tennis Elbow
Tennis and other racket sports require powerful wrists & forearms capable of enduring the large forces generated during a game. Wind back for a serve and power builds in the legs; works up through the core; into the shoulders; down the arms; through the forearms before exploding into the wrists as the racket makes contact with ball. The muscles generating all this power are supple and flexible, but the tendons attaching those muscles to the bone (particularly at the elbow & wrist) are not and tear easily (RSI) if not properly conditioned and maintained.
Powerball is body armour for the wrists. Spinning Powerball for as little as 3 minutes a day is enough to significantly protect your hands, wrists and forearms and reduce the likelihood of sustaining an injury both on and off the court. Exercise with Powerball allows for greater mobility, flexibility and endurance in your limbs and trains them to better cope with the pressure that comes from hours of swinging a racket.
Use Powerball on a daily basis and/or before and after a game to warm up your wrists and keep injuries like tennis elbow at bay. What is a great match if you’re left with painful wrists afterwards? Powerball allows you to hit harder for longer while benefiting from active injury protection – always.
