  • Gripping dumbbells

    I have a weak grip. Anyone with any suggestions on how to get a better grip or hold on them while exercising? Any tools or contraptions out there that I can get?

    Hi,

    I am a quad with a weak grip and I used the 'active hands' gripping aids designed by and for quads. There not perfect but well worth a look.

    However, I am from England so I am not sure if they are available in the US, you might be able to get them sent over.

    Here is a link

      Those UK versions look a lot more durable...but these are the ones we use at Project Walk.

        No Tri's or hand function.

          As an alternative to dumbbells, Heavy Hands work excellent without the need of using grip gloves. They slip securely onto your hand and can support weights up to 10 pounds.

            Mike's post made me think about the other option we use at Project Walk. These work really well for quads/tetras with limited grip strength.
