Congratulazioni per il tuo nuovo acquisto di Powerspin®

Questo esclusivo attrezzo da allenamento racchiude un pugno straordinario e svilupperà, rafforzerà e tonificherà i muscoli delle braccia, spalle, petto e addominali in modo veloce ed efficiente.

Powerspin® può essere utilizzato in sicurezza da persone di qualsiasi età o livello di forma fisica senza rischio di lesioni. Tu determini quanta forza viene generata durante ogni sessione. Gira rapidamente la palla per costruire muscoli o lentamente per riabilitare e recuperare la forza nei muscoli, legamenti e tendini dopo l’infortunio.

Si consiglia di riscaldare sempre prima di utilizzare il Powerspin®. Così aumenta la circolazione, previene le lesioni e otterrai risultati migliori in generale, indipendentemente dai tuoi attuali obiettivi di fitness.

Considera 60-90 secondi di “salto a gambe divaricate” o; qualche jogging statico o; salti semplici. Tutto ciò che aumenta la frequenza cardiaca assicurerà che il sangue inizi a circolare e consenta ai muscoli di rispondere più velocemente durante l’allenamento.

Leggere attentamente le seguenti linee guida sull’uso corretto di Powerspin® per garantire i massimi risultati da ogni sessione di allenamento.

COME INIZIARE IL TUO POWERSPIN®

Cominciare il tuo Powerspin è un processo semplice che richiede un po’ di tempo, ritmo e coordinazione per assicurare un movimento di rotazione regolare e ininterrotto della palla all’interno del tubo. Ed è facilmente appreso.
Le seguenti linee guida e suggerimenti video ti aiuteranno a capire la tecnica di spin richiesta per ogni posizione (e come andare in bicicletta, una volta appreso il movimento, non si dimentica).

VIDEO, PIÙ ALLENAMENTI E "TUTORIAL"

Troverai nostri video su Powerballs.com o visitando Youtube e cercando; ‘Powerspin Workouts’. In entrambi i luoghi, troverai anche dei passaggi a piedi per ciascuno dei movimenti di esercizio elencati nella parte posteriore di questo PDF e più brevi video che mostrano le tecniche per un facile avvio del tuo Powerspin.

POWERSPIN: DOMANDE FREQUENTI

A seconda del livello di forma fisica personale seguito dalla routine di allenamento Powerspin®, le sessioni di allenamento devono essere comprese tra 6 e 9 minuti (max) di lunghezza. Dovresti mirare a fare almeno due, ma idealmente tre sessioni di questo tipo ogni settimana. L’uso diligente di questo prodotto, nonostante i brevi tempi di allenamento, garantisce risultati visibili e misurabili nella parte superiore del corpo entro 30 giorni. Powerspin® offre una forma di allenamento isometrico; un metodo di esercizio altamente efficace e senza impatto che recluta un’alta percentuale di fibre muscolari in un lasso di tempo più breve rispetto ai metodi convenzionali di allenamento con i pesi e quindi produce risultati più rapidi senza rischio di lesioni.

La velocità di rotazione è, ovviamente, totalmente dipendente dal livello di fitness. Una volta che la palla inizia a girare, la resistenza è ‘sempre attiva’, quindi è importante fare il passo e girare dentro la tua abilità. I migliori risultati si ottengono dalle durate di spin individuali di 60 secondi per ciascun movimento di esercizio specifico (ad esempio, i giri veloci di 10-20 secondi hanno un beneficio minimo), con una selezione da 6 a 9 di questi movimenti di esercizio che si combinano per completare ogni sessione di allenamento completa.

Pertanto, è necessario selezionare un ritmo di rotazione che consente di completare i primi 30 secondi con uno sforzo di rotazione massimo del 70%, i 20 secondi successivi con uno sforzo massimo di circa l’85% e riservare gli ultimi 10 secondi al massimo sforzo del 90-95%. Tenere presente che il massimo sforzo di spin di un maschio di 65 anni che si riprende da un intervento chirurgico al cuore sarà notevolmente inferiore a quello di un triatleta, quindi la velocità di centrifuga dovrebbe SEMPRE essere basata sul TUO sforzo percepito – MAI (mai) superare la tua capacità fisica; Powerspin® sembra semplice ma racchiude un pugno ingannevole con quella resistenza “sempre attiva”.

Come la velocità di rotazione, la scelta dei movimenti di esercizio utilizzati per comporre ogni sessione di allenamento è una decisione personale. Considera Powerspin® come una versione avanzata di un manubrio regolare; ci sono sei movimenti di base che puoi fare con questo prodotto; ognuno dipende dall’angolo e dalla posizione in cui il dispositivo viene tenuto mentre giri. Oltre alla velocità e alla durata, gli allenamenti illustrati nella parte posteriore di questo foglio possono essere variati cambiando;

i) l’angolo trattenuto;

ii) dove comprendi Powerspin e

iii) la posizione del tuo braccio mentre giri. Potresti preferire di mantenere il tuo braccio completamente statico. Oppure potresti voler alzare, abbassare, estendere o contrarre il braccio mentre giri. Ogni variabile colpisce i tuoi muscoli in un modo unicamente diverso. Inoltre, potresti preferire diminuire la velocità di centrifuga e prolungare la durata dello spin di una sessione; questo aiuterà a costruire la resistenza nei muscoli anziché semplicemente rafforzarli. Come sempre, la decisione è completamente tua e l’aggiunta di variazioni aumenterà sicuramente i risultati che otterrai.

VIDEO: CÓMO INICIAR TU POWERSPIN®

Iniciar tu Powerspin es un proceso simple que requiere un poco de tiempo, ritmo y coordinación para garantizar un movimiento de giro suave e ininterrumpido de la bola dentro del tubo. Y es fácil de aprender.

Las siguientes pautas de video y consejos le serán útiles para comprender la técnica de giro necesaria para cada posición (e igual como andar en bicicleta, una vez que se aprende el movimiento, nunca se olvidará).

PREGUNTAS FRECUENTES

Dependiendo de tu nivel de condición física personal y de la rutina de ejercicios de Powerspin®, tus sesiones de entrenamiento deben durar entre 6 y 9 minutos (máximo). Deberías intentar hacer al menos dos, pero idealmente tres sesiones de este tipo cada semana. El uso diligente de este producto, a pesar de los cortos plazos de entrenamiento, garantiza resultados visibles y medibles en la parte superior del cuerpo dentro de los 30 días. Powerspin® ofrece una forma de entrenamiento isométrico; un método de ejercicio altamente eficiente y sin impacto que recluta un alto porcentaje de fibra muscular dentro de un período de tiempo más corto que los métodos convencionales de entrenamiento con pesas y, por lo tanto, produce resultados más rápidos sin riesgo de lesión.

La velocidad de giro es, por supuesto, totalmente dependiente del nivel de la condición física. Una vez que la bola comienza a girar, la resistencia está “siempre encendida”, por lo que es importante que se marque y gire dentro de tu propia capacidad. Los mejores resultados se obtienen a partir de una duración de giro individual de 60 segundos para cada movimiento de ejercicio específico (es decir, los giros rápidos de 10-20 segundos tienen un beneficio mínimo), con una selección de 6 a 9 movimientos de ejercicio combinados para completar cada sesión de entrenamiento completo.

Por lo tanto, debes seleccionar un ritmo de giro que le permita completar los primeros 30 segundos con aproximadamente el 70% de esfuerzo de giro máximo, los siguientes 20 segundos con aproximadamente el 85% de esfuerzo máximo y reservar esos últimos 10 segundos para un esfuerzo máximo de 90-95%. Tener en cuenta que el esfuerzo máximo de giro de un hombre de 65 años que se está recuperando de una cirugía cardíaca será considerablemente menor que el de un triatleta, por lo que la velocidad de giro SIEMPRE debe basarse en TU ​​propio esfuerzo percibido – NUNCA (nunca) exceda tu propia habilidad física; Powerspin® parece simple, pero tiene un golpe de resistencia “siempre encendida”. (Sabrá que ha alcanzado el punto dulce cuando los músculos de sus brazos se sienten como gelatina en los últimos 5 segundos. En serio).

Al igual que la velocidad de giro, la elección de los movimientos de ejercicio utilizados para completar cada sesión de entrenamiento es una decisión personal. Considere Powerspin® como una versión avanzada de una mancuerna regular; hay seis movimientos básicos de ejercicios que puedes hacer con este producto; cada uno depende del ángulo y la posición en la que se sostiene el dispositivo mientras giras. Además de la velocidad y la duración, los entrenamientos ilustrados en la parte posterior de esta hoja se pueden modificar cambiando;

i) el ángulo sostenido;

ii) donde agarra Powerspin y

iii) la posición de tu brazo mientras gira. Es posible que prefieras mantener tu brazo completamente estático. O puede que desees levantar, bajar, extender o contraer el brazo mientras gira. Cada variable golpea tus músculos de una manera única. Además, puedes preferir disminuir la velocidad de giro y extender la duración de giro de una sesión; esto ayudará a aumentar la resistencia en sus músculos en lugar de simplemente fortalecerlos. Como siempre, la decisión es completamente tuya y agregar variaciones sin duda mejorará los resultados que logrará.

Entraînement Powerspin - Niveau Avancé (en anglais)

POWERSPIN: QUESTIONS FREQUENTES

En fonction de votre niveau de forme physique et le programme d’entraînement Powerspin®  que vous voulez suivre, votre séance d’exercice devrait durer entre 6 et 9 minutes (maximum). Deux sessions par semaine est un bon objectif, mais l’idéal serait trois. L’usage fréquent de ce produit, malgré les courtes sessions, garantit des résultats visibles et mesurables dans le haut du corps en moins de 30 jours. Powerspin®  offre une forme d’entraînement isométrique ; une méthode d’exercice hautement efficace et sans impact qui engage un haut pourcentage de fibre musculaire plus rapidement que les entraînements conventionnels de lever de poids. Elle produit donc des résultats dans les meilleurs délais, sans risque de se blesser.

La vitesse de rotation dépend évidemment de votre forme physique. Si la balle tourne, c’est qu’il y a de la résistance, il est donc important de respecter son rythme et ses capacités propres.

Répéter chaque mouvement pendant 60 secondes et à votre rythme garantit des résultats optimaux (faire tourner la balle rapidement entre 10 et 20 secondes aura un impact moindre). Choisissez entre 6 et 9 mouvements afin de créer votre propre session d’entraînement (voir verso).

Vous devez donc choisir une vitesse de rotation qui vous permette d’être à 70% de vos capacités dans les 30 premières secondes, 85% pour les 20 secondes suivantes et réserver les 10 dernières pour être entre 90 et 95%. N’oubliez pas que l’effort maximal de rotation d’un homme de 65 ans ayant été opéré du cœur sera toujours plus faible que celui d’un triathlète, donc votre vitesse doit TOUJOURS dépendre de vos efforts ressentis – Ne dépassez JAMAIS vos propres capacités physiques; Powerspin a l’air anodin mais la résistance étant toujours active, sa puissance est surprenante. (Vous vous rendrez compte que vous aurez atteint vos limites quand vous penserez avoir de la gelée à la place des bras).

Tout comme pour la vitesse, c’est à vous de choisir les exercices pour votre séance d’entraînement. Imaginez Powerspin comme une version améliorée d’haltères normaux ; il y a 6 mouvements d’exercices de base que vous pouvez faire avec cet appareil ; chacun d’entre eux dépend de l’angle et la position avec lesquels vous le tenez. En plus de la vitesse et de la durée, vous pouvez varier les exercices illustrés au verso en changeant :  

  1. i) l’angle avec lequel vous tenez Powerspin ; 
  2. ii) où vous tenez l’appareil ; et
  3. iii) la position de votre bras. Garder le bras complètement statique, vouloir le lever, le baisser, le déplier ou le contracter pendant l’exercice… chaque variable va cibler vos muscles différemment. De plus, ralentir la vitesse de rotation et augmenter la durée de la session améliorera l’endurance de vos muscles en plus de les renforcer. Comme toujours, cette décision n’appartient qu’à vous et chaque variation va améliorer vos résultats.

ANLEITUNG UND BENUTZERHANDBUCH

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Kauf Ihres neuen Powerspin®

Dieses einzigartige Trainingsgerät bietet einen großartigen Trainingseffekt und entwickelt, stärkt und tonisiert schnell und effizient die Arm-, Schulter-, Brust- und Bauchmuskeln.

Powerspin® kann von Personen jeden Alters und jeder Fitnessstufe ohne Verletzungsrisiko sicher verwendet werden. Sie allein bestimmen, wie viel Kraft bei jeder Verwendung erzeugen wollen. Drehen Sie den Ball schnell, um Muskeln aufzubauen oder langsam, um Muskeln, Bänder und Sehnen nach einer Verletzung wieder zu stärken.

Wir empfehlen, dass Sie sich vor jeder Powerspin®-Verwendung aufwärmen. Dies erhöht die Durchblutung, beugt Verletzungen vor und führt zu besseren Ergebnissen, unabhängig von Ihren aktuellen Fitnesszielen.

Machen Sie 60-90 Sekunden lang den „Hampelmann“ oder joggen/springen Sie auf der Stelle. Alles, was im Vorfeld die Herzfrequenz erhöht, sorgt dafür, dass das Blut zirkuliert und die Muskeln während des Trainings schneller reagieren.

powerspin deutsch, powerspin benutzerhandbuch, benutzerhandbuch powerspin
Bitte laden Sie die vollständige Powerspin-Bedienungsanleitung hier herunter:
Es ist wightig, dass Sie sich die folgenden Anweisungen zur richtigen Verwendung des Powerspin® sorgfältig durch lesen, um maximale Ergebnisse bei jeder Trainingseinheit zu erzielen.

SO BRINGEN SIE IHREN POWERSPIN® IN GANG

Das In-Gang-Bringen Ihres Powerspins ist ein einfacher Vorgang, der ein wenig Zeit, Rhythmus und Koordination erfordert, um eine reibungslose, ununterbrochene Drehbewegung des Balls in der Röhre sicherzustellen. Und es ist ganz leicht zu erlernen.

Die folgenden Videos sollen Ihnen dabei helfen, die für jede Position erforderliche Drehtechnik zu verstehen (und wie beim Fahrradfahren wird die Bewegung, niemals vergessen, wenn sie einmal gelernt wurde):

VIDEOS, MEHR TRAINING UND TUTORIALS

Wir bieten viele Powerspin Trainingsvideos online, um Ihr Training mit Powerspin zu verstärken. Sie finden sie auf Powerballs.com oder wenn Sie auf YouTube den Suchbegriff „Powerspin Workouts“ eingeben. Unten finden Sie ein paar unsere beliebte Trainingseinheiten, die auf Deutsch übersetzt wurden:

Anfängerlevel (auf Deutsch)

Mittelstufe (auf Englisch)

POWERSPIN: HÄUFIG GESTELLTE FRAGEN

Abhängig von Ihrem persönlichen Fitnessstand und der befolgten Powerspin®-Trainingsroutine sollten Ihre Trainingseinheiten nur zwischen 6 und 9 Minuten (maximal) andauern. Sie sollten mindestens zwei, im Idealfall jedoch drei solcher Übungseinheiten pro Woche anstreben. Bei richtiger Verwendung dieses Produkts werden trotz der kurzen Trainingszeiten innerhalb von 30 Tagen sichtbare und messbare Ergebnisse im Oberkörperbereich erzielt. Powerspin® bietet eine Form des isometrischen Trainings an. Eine hocheffiziente, nichtmechanische Trainingsmethode, bei der ein hoher Anteil an Muskelfasern innerhalb eines kürzeren Zeitraums als bei herkömmlichen Krafttrainingsmethoden erneuert wird und daher schnellere Ergebnisse ohne Verletzungsrisiko erzielt werden.

Die Drehanzahl hängt natürlich vollständig von Ihrem Fitnesslevel ab. Sobald der Ball anfängt sich zu drehen, ist der Widerstand konstant vorhanden. Daher ist es wichtig, das persönliche Tempo zu finden und die Drehung im Rahmen Ihrer eigenen Fähigkeiten durchzuführen. Die besten Ergebnisse werden mit einer individuellen Drehdauer von 60 Sekunden für jede spezifische Trainingsbewegung erzielt (d. h. schnelle Dreheinheiten von 10 bis 20 Sekunden haben nur minimalen Nutzen) bei sechs bis neun solcher kombinierter Trainingsbewegungen, um eine komplette Trainingseinheit zu bilden (siehe Rückseite des Blattes).

Daher sollten Sie ein Drehtempo finden, mit dem Sie die ersten 30 Sekunden bei einer maximalen Drehkraft von ca. 70 %, die nächsten 20 Sekunden bei einer maximalen Drehkraft von ca. 85 % und die letzten 10 Sekunden bei einer maximalen Drehkraft von ca. 90-95 % durchführen. Denken Sie daran, dass die maximale Drehbelastung eines 65-jährigen Mannes, der sich von einer Herzoperation erholt, erheblich niedriger ist, als die eines Triathleten. Daher sollte die Drehgeschwindigkeit IMMER auf IHRER eigenen wahrgenommenen Belastungsgrenze basieren – überschreiben Sie NIEMALS Ihre eigenen körperlichen Fähigkeiten.

Die Powerspin®-Übungen sehen einfach aus, haben es jedoch in sich, da ein konstanter Widerstand besteht (Sie werden merken, wann Sie den idealen Drehpunkt erreicht haben, wenn sich Ihre Armmuskeln in den letzten 5 Sekunden wie Gelee anfühlen.)

Wie bei der Drehanzahl ist die Wahl der Übungsbewegungen bei jeder Trainingseinheit eine persönliche Entscheidung. Betrachten Sie Powerspin® als eine erweiterte Version einer normalen Hantel. Es gibt sechs Hauptübungsbewegungen, die Sie mit diesem Produkt ausführen können. Jedes hängt vom Winkel und der Position ab, in der das Gerät beim Drehen gehalten wird. Zusätzlich zu Geschwindigkeit und Dauer können die auf der Anleitung abgebildeten Trainingseinheiten durch Ändern i) des gehaltenen Winkels; ii) dadurch, wo Sie den Powerspin greifen und iii) durch die Position Ihres Arms beim Drehen variiert werden.

Wenn Sie es vorziehen, können Sie Ihren Arm komplett statisch halten. Oder Sie können den Arm beim Drehen anheben, absenken, ausstrecken oder zusammenziehen. Jede Variation wirkt auf eine einzigartig andere Art und Weise auf Ihre Muskeln ein. Außerdem können Sie die Drehanzahl verringern und die Drehdauer einer Einheit verlängern. Dies wird dazu beitragen, Ausdauer  aufzubauen, anstatt Ihre Muskeln nur zu stärken. Wie immer liegt die Entscheidung ganz bei Ihnen und das Hinzufügen von Variationen wird sicherlich die Ergebnisse verbessern, die Sie erzielen werden.

Powerball for Tennis Elbow Rehabilitation

Two research studies demonstrate the incredible benefits of Powerball exercise for tennis elbow treatment
Powerball for Tennis Elbow Rehabilitation

Two recent studies carried out by the University of Iran and the University of South Korea respectively have proven the significant advantages of Powerball exercise when it comes to tennis elbow rehabilitation. Both studies clearly show the benefits of gyroscopic exercise on a range of factors, including elbow, wrist and grip strength, general range of motion and function, pain, and overall quality of life in study participants.

What is Powerball?

Powerball is a simple handheld gyroscope which, when spun at speed, can generate up to 27kg in pure inertial resistance. This resistance works its way deep into tissue fibre, repairing and strengthening muscles from fingertip to shoulder.

Tennis Elbow Rehabilitation Powerball gyro ball image

The advantages of Powerball exercise are tenfold: build strong muscles, enhance grip strength, boost circulation or rehabilitate a wide range of injuries, including RSI like tennis elbow. All it takes is just 3 minutes a day of Powerball exercise to feel the difference. Don’t believe us? Continue reading to see just how beneficial Powerball can be when it comes to tennis elbow rehabilitation.

We offer a Powerball to suit every injury or strengthening goal. You can check out the wide range of Powerball models available in our online store here.

What is Tennis Elbow?
tennis elbow rehab, tennis elbow powerball, tennis elbow pain relief

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a type of RSI (repetitive strain injury) that affects the lateral tendons in the elbow (the small, bony lump on the outside of your elbow). Tennis elbow is usually caused by constant repetitive movements that, when carried out over time a long period of time, begin to irritate and strain the tendons in the elbow. This leads to inflammation and pain that may prevent joint movement and even begin to affect your everyday life.

Scientifically Proven: Powerball for Tennis Elbow Rehabilitation

Study One

“To determine the effect of eight-week “gyroscopic device” mediated resistance training exercise on grip strength, wrist and shoulder strength and proprioception, and upper extremity performance, in participants with impingement syndrome or tennis elbow.”

Who conducted this research study?

This study was conducted by members of the Department of Biomechanics and Sports Injuries at Kharazmi University in Tehran, Iran (published December 2017 in the Journal of Bodyworks and Movement Therapies).

tennis elbow pain, tennis elbow rehabilitation, tennis elbow research study
What was the aim of the research study?

The aim of the research study was to test the effects of Powerball exercise on:

  • Grip , wrist & shoulder strength
  • Wrist & shoulder proprioception (awareness of the position and movement of the body)
  • General shoulder (upper extremity) performance
How were participants chosen?

A carefully selected group of 22 male volleyball players between the ages of 22 and 28 were chosen to take part in this research study. The study was conducted at the university rehab clinic during the volleyball preseason. All of the participants were suffering from tennis elbow.

The participants were broken up into two groups for the study:

Group I – 15 participants with tennis elbow

Group II (Control group) – 7 participants with tennis elbow

How was this research study carried out?

The research study was carried out on all participants over a period of 8 weeks.

Before and after the 8 week period, the participants were properly tested by physicians so that the results could be accurately compared at the end of the study. These tests measured grip, wrist and shoulder strength, wrist and shoulder proprioception and upper extremity performance.

During the 8 week research study period, the participants from Group I (Powerball exercise) used Powerball three times a week.

The Powerball exercise sessions varied in length to correspond with the different stages of the research study. The Powerball sessions were also made up of 10 different exercise positions, each of which focused on a different muscle group.

 

tennis elbow treatment, powerball exercises, powerball exercises tennis elbow
  • Powerball exercises A – Wrist flexion and extension
  • Powerball exercises B – Elbow flexion and extension
  • Powerball exercises C – Shoulder flexion
  • Powerball exercises D – Shoulder abduction
  • Powerball exercises E – Shoulder external and internal rotation 1
  • Powerball exercises F – Shoulder external and internal rotation 2

The Powerball was always used at low spin speeds (less than 10,000rpm), as a low level of resistance training is most effective for rehabilitation purposes.

The control group (Group II) did not carry out any Powerball exercises during the 8-week period. Instead they were given only self-care recommendations, such as use a hot pack, practice active range of motion and engage in patient education during the course of the research study.

What were the results of this research study?

Once the 8 week period of Powerball strengthening was complete, the tests carried out before the study began were repeated and the results compared.

Researchers found clear improvement in Group I (Powerball exercise) when compared to the control group. Grip, wrist, and shoulder strength, proprioception and performance was massively improved among the participants who used Powerball for 8 weeks, while no improvement at all was found among participants in the control group.

From such significant results it can undoubtedly be seen that exercise with Powerball is highly beneficial for tennis elbow rehabilitation. What’s more, this research study has proven that not only does Powerball rehabilitate even in the chronic stages of a condition, but it also results in “improvement of power” by strengthening as you recover.

tennis elbow treatment, tennis elbow rehabilitation, tennis elbow relief
Study Two

“To investigate the effects of vibration resistance exercise on strength, range of motion, function, pain and quality of life in persons with tennis elbow.”

Who conducted this research study?

This study was conducted by members of the Department of Physical Therapy at Daejeon University, Daejeon, Republic of Korea (published December 2016 in the official journal of the Korean Academy of Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Science).

What was the aim of the study?

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Powerball use, also known as vibration resistance exercise (VRE) in patients with tennis elbow on:

  • Strength
  • Range of motion
  • Function
  • Pain
  • Quality of life
tennis elbow rehabilitation, elbow pain, powerball
How were participants chosen?

A carefully selected group of 27 people between the ages of 35 and 55 were chosen to participate in this research study. All of the participants were suffering from tennis elbow.

Participants were divided into three groups:

Group I – 9 participants exercising with Powerball (vibration resistance exercise (VRE))

Group II – 9 participants exercising with a weight (weight resistance exercise (WRE))

Group III – 9 participants in the control group

How was this research study carried out?

The research study was carried out on all participants over a period of 4 weeks. The participants were properly tested by physicians before and after the 4 week period, to that the results could be accurately compared at the end of the study.

The participants in Group I used Powerball (250Hz Powerball Classic) for 5 minutes at a time, three times a week. In comparison with the study conducted at Kharazmi University (Study One), the participants in this study only practiced one type of Powerball exercise. Each participant rested their elbow on an armrest at 90 degrees, while rotating Powerball in a circular motion.

Powerball 250 Classic, tennis elbow rehabilitation

The participants in Group II used a single handheld dumbbell for 5 minutes at a time, three times a week (1kg dumbbell for women, 2kg for men). The participants rested their forearm, but not their elbow, on an armrest and contracted their wrist while holding the dumbbell.

tennis elbow research study, tennis elbow powerball, powerball research study

Both Group I and Group II received electrical therapy for 30 minutes before carrying out their respective exercises. The control group (Group III) only ever received 15 minutes of electrical therapy three times a week during this research study.

Once the study was complete, the tests carried out before the study began were repeated and the results compared. These tests included:

  • Wrist extensor muscle strength test
  • Hand-grip strength test
  • Joint range of motion evaluation
  • Evaluation of elbow functional ability
  • Pain level assessment
  • Quality of life questionnaire
What were the results of this research study?

Comparing the before and after evaluations, researchers found significant improvements in the results. Group I (Powerball exercise) was found to have a clear increase in muscle strength and functional performance in the wrist, hand and elbow compared to the other two groups.

Grip strength, wrist range of motion and pain levels were also improved in Group I as well as in Group II (weight exercise) when compared to the control group. No significant difference was found in overall quality of life between the three groups.

Again, as with Study One, such significant and clear results are evident to show the incredible benefits of Powerball exercise when it comes to tennis elbow rehabilitation. Not only does regular use of Powerball actively promote tennis elbow treatment, but it also provides effective pain relief and improves overall muscle strength.

Please Note: It is important to consult with your doctor before partaking in any form of exercise. Please ensure that you have fully read the safety guide which accompanies your trampoline and make sure that it is set up properly before use. Ensure that you have sufficient space surrounding your trampoline, so that there is no risk of injury when performing these exercises.

Fitness Trampoline Workout: Warm Up

As with any form of exercise, it is important that you stretch fully before getting on your trampoline. If you exercise regularly, then you may already have your own warm up technique. For beginners, recommended stretching techniques should include stretching out the muscles in your arms and legs (side arm rotations, arm raises, lunges, etc.) and quick 10-second sessions of jogging on the spot, jumping jacks and high knee jumps.

All of the suggested exercise repetitions and break times are guidelines only. If you feel that your level of fitness will allow you to do more reps – then great! If you feel that the number of exercise repetitions are slightly too much, then simply lessen the amount of reps you do and increase the length of your break between sessions. The most important thing is that you never push yourself too hard or risk overexertion or injury.

Fitness Trampoline Workout: Exercises

1. High Jump

Now that you’re fully warmed up, you can get to bouncing! Start with an easy ‘up-and-down’ bounce. You can hold the handlebar for support if you wish, but be careful not to put your full weight on it. Do this for 30 seconds or 30 jumps before taking a 30 second break. Repeat this exercise 3 times.

How high you jump is up to you. For beginners, it is recommended that you start with steady jumps where your feet don’t go more than 2 or 3 feet off of the trampoline. To make this exercise more difficult, you can try lifting your knees to your chest as you bounce. This requires a much more powerful jump and will really work your core and legs.

30 seconds/jumps • 30 second break • x 3
Targets: Calves, Glutes, Quads, Hamstrings, Core

2. Squat and Pulse

Stand on the trampoline with your feet shoulder-width apart and bend your knees until you are in a squat position. Remember to keep your back straight. Slowly begin ‘pulsing’ while remaining in the squat position. The pulsing action is similar to a light bounce, but your feet should not leave the trampoline.

Do this exercise three times for reps of 30 seconds with a 30 second break in between reps. You can use the handlebar for support if you prefer, although it is not necessary for this exercise.

The lower you squat the more difficult this exercise will be. It is important that you keep the correct squatting position throughout the entire exercise, as an incorrect squatting technique will only have a negative affect on your training. If you are a beginner, it is recommended that you start at an easy squatting level, only sinking lower into the squat as you progress with your trampoline training.

Targets: Quads, Glutes, Handstrings, Core

3. Squat Jump

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and sit back into a squat position (same as exercise 2). Now use the power in your legs to push yourself upwards into a high jump. You should immediately return back to the squat position and repeat.

15 x squat jumps • 30 second break • x 3
powerball, mini fitness trampoline

It is important to ensure that you keep your back straight while in the squat position and that you always land softly on your knees after jumping. The lower you squat, the more difficult this exercise will be. The same goes for jumping – the higher you jump, the more power needed to propel yourself upwards into the jump.

Targets: Quads, Glutes, Hamstrings, Calves, Core

4. High Knee Raises

Stand on the trampoline with the handlebar to your side. Place your right foot slightly in front of your left. Holding the handle bar with one or both hands and keeping your right knee bent, raise your left knee so it is level with your chest (or as high as it can go). Bring your leg back down to the starting point and repeat this exercise 50 times. Once you’re finished, repeat the same excise using your other leg.

50 x high knee raises (right leg)
30 second break
50 x high knee raises (left leg)
x 2

While the buoyancy of the trampoline will help you to lift your leg upwards during this exercise, it is important that you always land softly, keeping your stationary knee bent at all times.

Targets: Core, Quads, Glutes, Hamstrings

5. Side Jump Twists

Stand on the trampoline with the handlebar to your side. Bending your knees, jump and turn your body to face the other side. Keep your knees as close together as you can during this exercise. Do 30 of these jumps, then take a break for 30 seconds. Repeat this exercise twice.

You may use the handlebar for support if you wish. The higher you jump, the more difficult this exercise will be. Always be aware of how high you can safely jump and never overexert yourself – if you feel sore or excessively tired, take a break.

30 x side jump twists • 30 second break • x 2
fitness trampoline workout, powerball trampoline, indoor trampoline
Targets: Core, Calves, Quads, Glutes, Hamstrings
6. High Knee Jumps

Stand with both feet firmly on the trampoline. Putting all of your balance on one leg, use the momentum of the trampoline to shift your weight from one leg to the other, lifting the the opposite knee each time so that it is level with your belly button. Depending on your fitness level, you can do 30 fast consecutive high knee jumps, or you can include a small bounce in between each jump if it’s easier.

Continue to lift your knees in this way 30 times, before taking a 30 second break. Repeat this exercise 3 times.

30 x knee lifts • 30 second break • x 3

Use the handlebar to maintain your balance if needed. The higher you lift your knee, the more difficult this exercise will be.

Targets: Glutes, Quads, Hamstring, Calves, Core

Fitness Trampoline Workout: Cool Down

1-2 minutes of light bouncing on the trampoline will sufficiently lower your heart rate to normal and prevent the build up of lactic acid in your muscles after exercising. To help further loosen out the muscles, it is also important to stretch afterwards (arm raises, side arm rotations, lunges, side lunges, neck rolls, etc.).

Repeating this trampoline fitness workout 2-3 times a week is a highly-effective way to increase your fitness levels, stay active and keep your body in shape. After you have completed this exercise workout a few times, you can start to increase the number of reps for each exercise or make the workouts more difficult by jumping higher, squatting lower, etc.

No matter what your fitness level however, it is always important to be aware of your capabilities and to never overexert or risk injury to yourself. Be aware of your surroundings and always read the safety guide before beginning any form of exercise with this trampoline.

Powerball for Shoulder Impingement Injury Rehabilitation

A research study published by the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies demonstrates the incredible benefits of Powerball exercise

In December 2017, the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies published a research study which examined the effects of mediated resistance training (using a Powerball gyroscope) for a period of eight weeks on people suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome or tennis elbow. The Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies is an online platform which has been publishing a wide range of scientific journals relevant to world health care and clinical practice dating back to 1996.

This particular research study was carried out by the Department of Biomechanics and Sport Injuries at Kharazmi University in Tehran, Iran.

The results of this eight-week long study were significant and clearly demonstrated that exercising with Powerball for as little as three times a week was extremely effective in rehabilitating both a shoulder impingement injury and tennis elbow.

What is Powerball?

Powerball is a simple handheld gyroscope which, when spun at speed, can generate up to 27kg in pure inertial resistance. This resistance works its way deep into tissue fibre, repairing and strengthening muscles from fingertip to shoulder.

shoulder impingement, shoulder impingement syndrome

The advantages of Powerball exercise are tenfold: build strong muscles, enhance grip strength, boost circulation or rehabilitate a wide range of injuries, including RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and shoulder impingement injuries. All it takes is just 3 minutes a day of Powerball exercise to feel the difference. Don’t believe us? Continue reading to see just how beneficial Powerball can be when it comes to rehabilitation.

We offer a Powerball to suit every injury or strengthening goal. You can check out the wide range of Powerball models available in our online store here.

What is a Shoulder Impingement Injury?

A shoulder impingement injury can be a serious cause of pain for many sufferers. This injury usually occurs when the tendons in the shoulder are ‘impinged’ or encroached upon by the bones of the shoulder. Continuous overhead movement is the largest cause of shoulder impingement injuries.

shoulder impingement injury, shoulder impingment syndrome, powerball rehab, powerball

Activities such as, swimming, playing tennis, wrestling, painting, or in the case of this research study, playing volleyball, are all commonly associated with the injury. Shoulder impingement injuries can have a debilitating effect on everyday life and can lead to long-term conditions, such as tendinitis, bursitis and rotator cuff injuries.

Typical methods of treatment that your doctor might recommend for these types of injuries are wearing a brace, practicing concentric and eccentric exercises or, in more serious cases, surgery or steroid injections. Looking at the study below, we can now say that there is indeed a better way to successfully treat shoulder impingement injuries – it’s as simple as Powerball.

The Research Study

What was the aim of the research study?

The aim of the research study was to test the effects of Powerball exercise on:

  • Grip , wrist & shoulder strength
  • Wrist & shoulder proprioception (awareness of the position and movement of the body)
  • General shoulder (upper extremity) performance

How were participants chosen?

A carefully selected group of 45 male volleyball players between the ages of 22 and 28 were chosen to take part in this research study. The study was conducted at the university rehab clinic during the volleyball preseason. All of the participants were suffering from either a shoulder impingement injury or tennis elbow.

The participants were broken up into three groups for the study:

Group I – 15 participants with shoulder impingement injuries

Group II – 15 participants with tennis elbow

Group III (Control group) – 8 participants with shoulder impingement injuries and 7 with tennis elbow

shoulder impingement syndrome

How was the research study carried out?

The research study was carried out on all participants over a period of 8 weeks.

powerball, powerball classic, shoulder impingement syndrome

Before and after the 8 week period, the participants were properly tested by physicians so that the results could be accurately compared at the end of the study.

These tests measured grip, wrist and shoulder strength, wrist and shoulder proprioception and upper extremity performance.

During the 8 week research study period, the participants from Group I (shoulder impingement) and Group II (tennis elbow) used Powerball three times a week.

The Powerball exercise sessions varied in length to correspond with the different stages of the research study. The Powerball sessions were also made up of 10 different exercise positions, each of which focused on a different muscle group.

shoulder impingement injury, shoulder impingement injuries, Powerball
  • Powerball exercises A - Wrist flexion and extension
  • Powerball exercises B - Elbow flexion and extension
  • Powerball exercises C - Shoulder flexion
  • Powerball exercises D - Shoulder abduction
  • Powerball exercises E - Shoulder external and internal rotation 1
  • Powerball exercises F - Shoulder external and internal rotation 2

The majority of the above exercises were carried out on average three to four times each for 60 seconds at a time. During the first week of the study, only wrist and elbow Powerball exercises were carried out by participants, with more exercises being added gradually as the weeks progressed. The Powerball was always used at low spin speeds (less than 10,000rpm), as a low level of resistance training is most effective for rehabilitation purposes.

journal of bodywork and movement therapies, powerball research study, shoulder injury

The control group (Group III) did not carry out any Powerball exercises during the 8-week period. Instead they were given only self-care recommendations, such as use a hot pack, practice active range of motion and engage in patient education during the course of the research study.

What were the results of the research study?

Once the 8 week period of Powerball strengthening was complete, the tests carried out before the study began were repeated and the results compared.

Although no significant difference was found between Group I and Group II, researchers found clear improvement in both groups when compared to the control group. Grip, wrist, and shoulder strength, proprioception and performance was massively improved among the participants who used Powerball for 8 weeks, while no improvement at all was found among participants in the control group.

From such significant results it can undoubtedly be seen that exercise with Powerball is highly beneficial for those suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome and tennis elbow. What’s more, this research study has proven that not only does Powerball rehabilitate even in the chronic stages of a condition, but it also results in “improvement of power” by strengthening as you recover.

Effective rehabilitation anytime, anywhere

Powerball is an easy-to-use, compact and extremely powerful device that should be an essential item for anyone suffering from a shoulder impingement injury. Target and treat a shoulder injury at its source, eliminating pain and strengthening for future injury prevention – all it takes is 3 minutes a day of Powerball exercise to feel the difference.

On the 8th of March last year, I tore a Rotator Cuff tendon in my right shoulder whilst playing squash. I have seen many physiotherapists, had an MRI scan and purchasing numerous products design to help me cure my shoulder.

However, after nearly eight weeks of using an amber Powerball 250 Hz Regular, I am convinced it has done the trick.

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.

Powerball: Effective Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a long-term neurodegenerative disorder, which affects the way the brain co-ordinates the movements of the body, such as walking, talking and writing. Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease usually develop slowly over a number years and can affect people in different ways. However, people suffering from this condition will generally experience either tremors, slowness of movement (brandykinesia) or muscle rigidity, if not a combination of all three.

Although there is currently no cure for the condition, there are a number of things that can lessen the impact of some side effects and help with the overall treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Practicing regular exercises is one such method of treatment that can have impactful benefits for Parkinson’s patients.

What is Powerball?

Powerball is a handheld gyroscopic exerciser that can provide both relief and strength to anyone suffering from the disease. Powerball is powerful, easy to use and can help to combat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as:

  • Reduce stiffness & muscle rigidity
  • Increase hand & arm flexibility
  • Relieve pain caused by muscle tension
  • Build strength to prevent muscle wastage
  • Promote coordination & sense of balance

Powerball is physician-approved and used by over 4 million people worldwide for effective rehabilitation and strengthening results. Continue reading for more information on how Powerball can help with the treatment for Parkinson’s disease.

How is Powerball beneficial in the treatment for Parkinson’s disease?

+ Prevent muscle wastage

Slowness of movement and muscle rigidity in Parkinson’s patients can sometimes make it difficult to practice normal muscle range of motion. That’s why regular strengthening is very important in the treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Maintaining healthy and strong muscles prevents atrophy (muscle wastage), which occurs when muscles become underused.

treatment for parkinson's disease, powerball, powerball autostart

As one of the world’s most effective isometric exercisers, Powerball can stop and prevent the symptoms of muscle wastage. Isometric exercise does not lengthen or shorten the length of a muscle like standard concentric and eccentric exercises do.

Instead, isometric exercise engages a muscle from deep within its core, keeping it stationary yet working it hard. For this reason, exercise with Powerball is highly-effective for strengthening and muscle building yet, is still 100% non-impact and pain-free. This allows you to strengthen your muscles, even with minimal effort and makes Powerball very beneficial in the treatment for Parkinson’s disease.

+ Reduce stiffness & increase flexibility

Muscle rigidity and stiffness are primary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and can make even simple movements difficult to carry out. Exercise with Powerball can be extremely beneficial in the treatment for Parkinson’s disease, as it relieves stiffness by loosening out tight muscles and joints.

This happens two ways:

1. Spinning Powerball promotes the circulation of blood, which helps to relieve tension and pain and loosen out tight muscles.

2. Spinning Powerball stimulates the production of synovial fluid, which helps increase flexibility and range of motion in joints.

The combination of both benefits means less stiffness and more mobility for anyone suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

treatment for parkinson's disease, powerball, powerball diablo

+ Improve coordination and sense of balance

Spinning Powerball requires a little bit of technique and coordination. Depending on your strengthening goals, you can spin Powerball as fast or as slow as you like, it’s completely up to you. We recommend starting slow and gradually increasing your spin speed as you gain more and more strength in your arms, hands and wrists. Once you’re comfortable with Powerball, you can try varying your efforts, moving from slow to fast spin speeds and back again.

Focusing on maintaining certain spin speeds like this engages not only your muscles, but also your mind. In this way, exercise with Powerball is effective for anyone suffering from Parkinson’s disease who wants to build on their coordination skills and improve their sense of balance.

Other benefits of Powerball for Parkinson’s patients

Isometric exercise with Powerball is 100% non-impact, meaning it places absolutely zero strain on sore or painful muscles. So, when you exercise with Powerball, you need never worry about overexerting yourself or sustaining an injury in the process.

treatment for parkinson's disease, powerball, powerball classic

At the size of a tennis ball, Powerball fits securely and comfortably in your hand. Very little grip strength is required to spin Powerball at slow speeds, so you can use this product even if you cannot fully grasp the ball due to pain in the hand or forearm.
treatment for parkinson's disease, powerball, powerball autostart

It takes very little effort to start Powerball. If you are a first-time user of Powerball, we recommend starting off with one of our Autostart modelsTo start Autostart Powerball, simply wind the rotor back a couple of turns and release. This is quite easy to do, however, if you find that muscle stiffness or tremors are making this difficult to do, you can also roll Powerball across a flat table to get it started. See here for more information on how to start your Powerball.

Powerball takes the monotony out of strengthening and rehabilitation. Some of our Powerball models are fitted with colourful LED lights, which create a mesmerising lightshow as you spin. The faster you spin, the brighter and more epic the glow. Many of our Powerball models are fitted with a battery-free speed meter that allows you to track your strengthening process and spin speeds. The speed meter will even save your highest spin speed, so you can keep motivated to beat your high score.treatment for parkinson's disease, powerball, powerball supernova

We offer a wide range of strengthening and rehabilitation products, which complement Powerball exercise perfectly for maximum results. Each piece of strengthening equipment serves its own function and provides its own individual benefits depending on your needs. Find the perfect strength tool for you today: build strength, rehabilitate/prevent injury, relieve tension & stress or combat stiffness in the muscles – there is a strength tool for everyone.

Physio-designed exercise programmes

Here at Powerball, we’ve worked closely with physio therapists to design comprehensive video and exercise programmes that exercise and strengthen from fingertip to shoulder. Each programme is easy to follow and will be beneficial with the treatment for Parkinson’s disease. You can check out the range of videos available on our videos page or watch the examples below for wrist and forearm strengthening exercises.

As Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative condition, using Powerball cannot prevent or cure this disease. However, regular exercise with Powerball can lessen certain side effects of Parkinson’s and can help to improve overall muscle movement, including providing pain relief and increased flexibility. However, due to the fact that there are many stages of Parkinson’s disease, we recommend first consulting with your doctor or physio therapist before using Powerball or any exercise device.

Why is regular grip strength training important?

Despite what people might say, strength tools are not just made for dedicated fitness fans. Regular grip training with a reliable piece of grip strength equipment should be part of everyone’s daily routine.

Do you:

  • Play sport?
  • Work on a computer?
  • Lift weights?
  • Garden?
  • Play an instrument?
  • Wash the dishes?
  • Drive?

Everyday we carry out hundreds of movements which, when repeated regularly start to weaken our muscles and joints. Overuse injuries, such as RSI (repetitive strain injuries) are extremely common and develop as a result of simple, repetitive everyday movements. That’s why it is so important that we practice regular grip strength training. Using a piece of grip strength equipment even just for a couple of minutes every day is enough to effectively maintain muscle and joint health and prevent injury from occurring.

Why should I practice regular grip strengthening?

+ Rehabilitate an injury or strengthen weak muscles

Suffer from weak wrists, a shaky grip or hand injury? Using a good piece of grip strength equipment on a regular basis can change that. Relieve pain, rehabilitate injury and regain strength – all it takes is just a couple of minutes a day to start seeing the results. Some pieces of grip strength equipment in the list below are specifically-designed for strengthening after you have recovered from certain injuries. Find the right strengthening tool for you today and get back to a strong, healthy and pain-free lifestyle in no time.

+ Build grip strength & endurance for sports

The basis of many sports is a strong grip (golf, tennis, climbing, martial arts, cycling and more). And whether professional or amateur, a reliable piece of grip strength equipment should be in the gym bag of every athlete. Use it to warm up before a game or cool down after a practice session – strength tools build muscle, endurance and grip strength so that you can play better for longer. What’s more, regular training with a good piece of grip strength equipment keeps your muscles and joints supple and strong, greatly lowering your risk of sustaining a sport-related injury or RSI.

grip strength equipment, strength tools, powerball for golf

+ Increase grip power & finger dexterity for musical instrument playing

Build grip strength, enhance finger dexterity, increase joint mobility and flexibility: no matter what your instrument, all musicians will benefit from using grip strength equipment. Regularly training your hands, fingers and wrists with a good piece of grip strength equipment should a part of every musician’s practice routine.

grip strength equipment, strength tools, powerball for musicians

We recommend using strength tools on a daily basis for effective grip strength training and muscle health maintenance, however grip strength equipment is also ideal for warming up/down before and after practice sessions or performances. So, whether your forte is the guitar, piano or drums, you can enjoy enhanced performance and technique simply by practicing regular strength training. See the list below to choose the perfect strength tool for you.

+ Prevent RSI & other injury

RSI (repetitive strain injuries), such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, golfer’s/tennis elbow, etc. develop as a result of muscle or tendon overuse. Small movements repeated over time can cause irritation, inflammation and pain that can later develop into a serious RSI. Work-related RSI is a particularly common problem that affects office workers, manual labourers and assembly-line employees. Using a computer mouse, typing or repeatedly lifting or assembling objects will usually be the basis for this debilitating injury. Other activities, such as playing a sport or musical instrument, driving, knitting, gardening or simply washing the dishes can also cause RSI.

For this reason, regular training with a reliable piece of grip strength equipment is extremely important. A good piece of equipment should not only strengthen your grip, but it should also build muscle and endurance in the hands, fingers, wrists and arms.

grip strength equipment, powerball, strength tools, hand pain

Maintaining strong and flexible muscles is without a doubt the most effective way to protect yourself from injury. And all you need is a good piece of grip strength equipment to keep the symptoms of RSI and other injuries at bay. Every one of the strength tools listed below is highly-effective for building grip power, muscle strength and endurance and providing long-lasting injury rehabilitation/prevention.

Wrist Physical Therapy – Effective Exercises for Rehabilitation & Strengthening

As one of the most active joints in the body, the wrist can be very susceptible to injury. Fractures, sprains, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, ligament tears, breaks… the list goes on – there are so many different types of wrist injuries that affect people today. But no matter what your injury, it is important to make sure that you rehabilitate fully by practicing effective wrist physical therapy.

Wrist Physical Therapy Made Simple with Powerball

There are a variety of techniques and exercises that are effective for wrist physical therapy. Range of motion exercises along with stretching and strengthening exercises will most likely be recommended by your doctor or physiotherapist to help you rehabilitate and re-train your wrist after injury. While these types of exercises are very beneficial, we recommend that you supplement them with isometric exercise in order to achieve maximum recovery results.

Powerball is one of the most effective isometric exercisers in the world. At only the size of an apple, Powerball is a physician-approved gyroscope that is used by over 4 million people worldwide to effectively rehabilitate and strengthen their upper-body limbs.

Experience the results for yourself – spin Powerball for just 3 minutes a day to benefit from fast and effective wrist physical therapy.

Continue reading for recommended wrist physical therapy exercises and more information on Powerball’s incredible rehabilitation benefits.

Wrist Physical Therapy for Specific Injuries

Because there are so many different types of wrist injuries, there are also different forms of wrist injury rehabilitation. Some wrist injuries, such as RSI (carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis), will heal themselves over time, while others require that you wear a cast or splint on your wrist for a couple of weeks (breaks, fractures, sprains) before beginning any kind of therapy.

Very severe wrist injuries may even require surgery, but no matter what kind of wrist injury you have, all injuries will benefit from wrist strengthening exercises at some point during your recovery.

Beneficial Exercises for Wrist Physical Therapy

Once you have fully healed from your wrist injury, you can start regaining strength and movement in your wrist as part of your wrist physical therapy. To be clear, you should only ever begin wrist physical therapy AFTER your injury has fully healed (i.e bones/tears/fractures are fully repaired and you no longer experience intense pain when moving the wrist joint.) It is recommended that you visit your doctor if you are unsure about when to start wrist physical therapy.

Even after your injury has properly healed, your muscles, tendons and bones will likely be very weak. That is why is it important to start slowly and gradually build the intensity of your wrist physical therapy as you progress through your recovery.

Stage 1 - Range of motion exercises

Range of motion exercises require simple movements of the wrist and are a good place to start when you begin wrist physical therapy. These types of exercises slowly take the wrist through its normal range of motion and should be done gently and carefully to avoid further injury. Below are three examples of simple range of motion exercises. Each exercise should be done 10 times (10 reps), which should be repeated 3 times daily.

Beneficial for: Most wrist injuries, including wrist RSI (carpal tunnel syndrome & tendonitis), wrist fractures & breaks, wrist sprains, de Quervain’s tenosynovitis and more.

Always take care to never overexert yourself. If it hurts, take a break! It is advised that you seek medical attention if you experience severe pain or numbness after or during these exercises.

1. Wrist extension and flexion

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

With your forearm resting on a table, have your hand hanging over the ledge with your palm facing down.

Gently move your hand upward until you feel a gentle stretch. Lower your hand again to the starting position.

Repeat this exercise 10 times, 3 times a day.

2. Palm turning exercise

While seated, lay your hand flat on your leg with your palm facing down. Gently turn your hand over, so that the palm is facing up.

Repeat this exercise 10 times, 3 times a day.

3. Opening and closing fist

Begin with your fist closed (not too tightly). Slowly open your palm, stretching your fingers outwards.

Close your fist again. Repeat this exercise 10 times, 3 times a day.

Stage 2 – Stretching exercises

Wrist stretching exercises are a step further in wrist physical therapy. As the name suggests, these types of exercises stretch out the muscles and tendons in the wrist and forearm, increasing circulation and overall flexibility. Below are four examples of simple, yet effective stretching exercises for wrist physical therapy.

1. Wrist stretch (palm inwards)

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

Begin with your arm outstretched in front of you with your palm facing in towards your body and your fingers pointing towards the floor.

With your free hand, grab the fingers of your outstretched hand and gently pull them towards you until you feel a gentle stretch in the back of your wrist.

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

Hold the stretch for 10-20 seconds.

Repeat this exercise again, but this time have your fingers facing up towards the ceiling with your palm still facing in towards your body.

Repeat this exercise 3 times a day.

2. Wrist stretch (palm outwards)

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

This exercise is the exact same as the one above, except that this time, your palm is facing outwards, away from your body throughout the exercise.

Repeat 3 times daily.

Both of the above exercises can be performed using a table (as illustrated below).

Place both of your palms face down on the edge of a table. Keeping your elbows straight, gently lean your body weight forward. Hold this position for 10-20 seconds.

Repeat this exercise 3 times.

Afterwards, turn your hands so that the palms are facing upwards towards the ceiling. Repeat the same movements as above (repeat 3 times).

3. Palm press (thumbs in)

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

While standing, bring your hands together in a praying position.

Raise your hands until they are level with your face and bring your elbows together.

Keeping them joined, slowly start to lower your hands until you begin to feel a gentle stretch (this is usually felt as your hands draw level with the belly button).

Hold the stretch for 10-20 seconds. Repeat this exercise 3 times daily.

4. Palm press (thumbs out)

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

Bring your hands together in a praying position, level with your belly button. Now turn your hands downwards, so that your fingers are pointing down towards the floor (thumbs are facing outwards).

Slowly bring your hands up towards your chest until you feel a gentle stretch.

Hold the stretch for 10-20 seconds. Repeat 3 times daily.

Stage 3 - Strengthening exercises

Once you can do all of the range of motion and stretching exercises without feeling any pain, you can move on to strengthening exercises. Strengthening exercises are the final stage of your wrist physical therapy and will effectively strengthen the wrist joint for a longer-lasting, more effective recovery. Stronger, healthier wrists are more flexible and resilient, and are less likely to incur injury in the future.

Practicing regular strengthening exercises maintains muscle and joint health and so, it is recommended that you continue to practice the below exercises even after you have fully regained strength in your wrist.

1. Wrist extension exercise

wrist physical therapy, powerball, wrist pain

Holding a can or light dumbbell in your hand, bend your elbow at a 90-degree angle. (You may also support your arm on a table to do this exercise if it is easier.) Ensure that the hand holding the weight is facing upwards, (palm facing towards the ceiling).

Now, keeping your elbow bent, slowly raise your hand upwards (towards your body) until you feel a gentle stretch.
Hold this position for 10-20 seconds, then bring your hand back to the starting position.

Repeat this exercise 10 times, 3 times a day.

As you feel yourself becoming stronger, you can gradually increase the weight of the can/dumbbell.

2. Wrist flexion exercise

This exercise is the exact same as the one above, except that this time, the hand holding the weight is positioned with the palm facing down towards the floor.

With your elbow bent at a 90-degree angle, hold the weight in your hand. Slowly raise your hand upwards, bending your wrist until you feel a gentle stretch.

wris

Hold this position for 10-20 seconds, then bring your hand back to the starting position.

Repeat this exercise 10 times, 3 times a day.

As you feel yourself becoming stronger, you can gradually increase the weight of the can/dumbbell.

3. Grip strengthening

wrist physical therapy, grip strengthening

For this exercise you need a soft, rubber ball, such as a stress ball or hard sponge (see below for our stress ball products).

Grip the ball in your hand with your fingers all around it.

Gently begin squeezing the ball. There are two types of exercises you can do here:

1. Give the ball 10 short squeezes with your hand – squeezing, then immediately loosening your grip. Repeat this 3 times (10 reps x 3).

– or –

2. Squeeze the ball and hold for 10 seconds. Then release. Repeat this exercise 3 times.

Powerball® Strengthening Accessories for Wrist Physical Therapy

You can check out the range of strengthening accessories available below or in our online store:

Isometric Exercise for Effective Wrist Physical Therapy

Isometric exercise differs from concentric and eccentric exercise (the exercises outlined above), because it does not involve a change in muscle length or joint angle. With other types of exercises, the muscle lengthens (eccentric) or shortens (concentric), but isometric exercise keeps the muscle stationary. However, this does not mean that your muscles aren’t working hard when engaged in isometric exercise. In fact the opposite is true: isometric exercise works your muscles from their very core, building strength and endurance faster than any other form of exercise.

Powerball for Wrist Physical Therapy

Powerball is a simple, handheld gyroscope yet, is one of the world’s most effective isometric exercisers. Powerball generates healing isometric resistance as you spin it – the faster you spin, the more resistance it creates. Powerball’s isometric exercise engages your muscles from fingertip to shoulder and is thus, highly effective for rehabilitation, strengthening and wrist physical therapy.

Start spinning with Powerball today and see for yourself why over 4 million people worldwide have benefited from using this unique product.

+ Rehabilitate wrist injuries

The intensity of your exercise with Powerball can be as gentle or as powerful as you like – you control the speed of your recovery. For effective rehabilitation results, we always recommend starting at low spin speeds and gradually building intensity as you grow stronger.

Even at low spin speeds, Powerball’s isometric resistance still massively increases circulation throughout the entire kinetic chain of the arm, bringing healing, oxygen-rich nutrients to damaged tissue in the wrist. These nutrients act fast to relieve any pain and repair and rejuvenate injured muscles, tendons and bones. And that’s not even the best part…

+ Strengthen as you recover

Powerball is so effective for wrist physical therapy because of its ability to build strength and rehabilitate at the same time. As your muscles and tendons are healing, they are also fully engaged by Powerball’s isometric resistance. This resistance delves deep into tissue fibres, actively strengthening your muscles as you recover. This dual action of strengthening and rehabilitation dramatically cuts recovery times and promotes long-lasting rehabilitation results that go muscle-deep.

+ Increase wrist flexibility & range of motion

Reduce stiffness, enhance flexibility and increase circumduction (range of motion) in the wrist joint – it’s as easy as spinning Powerball. Exercising with Powerball increases the production of synovial fluid with lubricates the wrist joint. This in turn reduces any pain and stiffness caused by injury and allows you to gain power, increase flexibility and recover strength in the wrist. All it takes is 3 minutes a day with Powerball to start seeing the benefits of this unique gyroscope.

+ 100% non-impact wrist physical therapy

If you haven’t already guessed, the secret to Powerball is it’s healing isometric resistance. Isometric resistance is 100% non-impact, meaning it doesn’t place any extra strain on sore muscles or tendons in the wrist. What’s more, Powerball requires very little effort to start and spin. Many of our models are fitted with an Autostart mechanism for even greater ease of use. (You can check out our video tutorials on how to start your Powerball here.) With this in mind, you need never worry about overexerting yourself or worsening your injury when you exercise with Powerball.

+ Prevent future injury

Spin Powerball for as little as 3 minutes each day to benefit from effective injury protection. Think of it as an extra layer of body armour for your wrists: as you exercise, Powerball’s unique isometric resistance works its way along the entire arm, actively strengthening and preventing injury from fingertip to shoulder. Combat the symptoms of RSI, weak wrists or a reoccurring injury simply by spinning Powerball. It has never been easier to keep your wrists strong, healthy and pain-free.

CLIMBER'S ELBOW OR GOLFER'S ELBOW? POWERBALL IT AWAY.

I’ve been suffering with Golfers Elbow for some time and use my Powerball when it gets really uncomfortable, I exercise with Powerball for a couple of minutes then, as if by magic the aches ease away and my arm is trouble free for about a week. No permanent cure yet, but 2 weeks totally rested and filled with Ibuprofen didn’t provide a medical cure either. At least this Powerball gives me around a week of pain relief for a couple of minutes of exercise, and virtually instant too.
