Strength and Endurance

Something we seldom think about but often feel the effects of, are having a lack of strength in our hands, fingers, wrist and forearm. When working on woodworking projects, you need a lot more stamina and endurance then you would imagine. The pressure and strain from holding a sander or mider saw for hours on end can really add up.

We've come across a good solution for keeping your hands and forearm strong. I've used this great pair of hand strengthener grips for a year now and I can really tell the difference while I'm doing my projects. My arms don't get as sore, I don't have the pain I used to in my hands after work and I can grip a lot harder then before.

It may seem silly, but this is a good fix for anyone that uses their hands a lot. Musicians, woodworkers, construction workers, athletes, rock climbers and many more can take great benefit from this. My advice is that you check it out and see if it works for you. Good luck and as always, please share your results in the comments section. Cheers!
