  • Weight training/exercise

    Not sure if this belongs here or in equipment... its kinda both.

    Ok so here's the deal... I'm trying to get to a gym to start weight training to build my feble muscles on my arms and strengthen what I do have on my back to keep everything else going. BUT I can not grip with my hands, so I can't hold those bars. I have strength in arms to use weights.

    I live in Australia. I found a while ago these really cool hook things... they velcro-ed attached around my wrist, then the wide hook fitted under my hand at pals - as if i was holding bar but hook was - it had a gripper under so the hook did not fly off when i pull the weight bar. They were great, but in all my moves I lost them, grr silly i know. Now these were given to me by a AB weight trainer, so they were not specialised for re-hab or the like.

    I can not find them anywhere, on net have looked under gym equipment, rehab, disabled, i'm going crazy! I know they or something similar are out there.

    So my question is, has anyone come across them? Or any suggestions where Imight look for the like?

    Cheers Pony
