Golf Strength Training - Grip Wrist & Arm Strength
Golf strength training to give you the edge
Powerball is the perfect training tool for building huge grip, wrist and arm strength. It is ideally suited for strength training for golf. Find out why over 4 million people have benefited from Powerballs isometric exercise.
Get the most out of your swing
In a golf swing, it’s the forearms and wrists which ultimately transmit ALL the force created by the body into the club head. You can have perfect form, a powerful core, and broad shoulders, but if you have weak forearms and break down at the wrists, distance and control will be severely compromised. Powerball is golf strength training with a difference allowing you to build massive grip and wrist strength.
Stay healthy while building strength
Powerball can effectively strengthen your arms from fingertips to shoulders and is supported by a range of Physio designed strength exercise videos and programmes which target each specific muscle group. Powerball is also unique in that it helps prevent conditions such as Golfer’s elbow and various other repetitive strain injuries. So with Powerball you’re not only building a more powerful golf swing, you’re also keeping your arms and wrists healthy. It is perfect for warming up and down allowing you not to pick up any injuries.
Powerball and Golf…..
Major champion Padraig Harrington first begin using Powerball back in 1997, along with golf pro and Guinness World Record Holder for golf’s longest drive, Karl Woodward, who credits Powerball for his massive distance off the tee. Hundreds of pros and players of all levels throughout the world use Powerball to enhance their own game. Whether you want extra strength to blast the ball out of the rough or to add extra yards on your drive, Powerball is the perfect training device to help you do so and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Train Anywhere even at your work desk
The handheld Powerball is the perfect training aid for on the go, at work or at home. Recently voted Independent best desk exerciser, Powerball is effective when used for as little as 3 minutes a day, helping build strength and preventing arm injuries like golfers elbow for all players.
Powerball Isometric Exercise
Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) which spins on its axis creating resistance against the user. This resistance is created by the rotor as you turn your wrists which is known as gyroscopic precision (feels like gravity working against you). The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. A Powerball can reach up to an incredible 60+ pounds of force for strength building, however, it can be as gentle as you like for rehabilitation. This all depends on how hard you push yourself. If you want to find out more about how a Powerball gyroscope works see our blog: What is a Gyroscope?
LCD Speed Meter -Track Your Strength Gains
The battery free LCD meter fitted to selected Powerball models is magnetic-induction powered directly from the Powerballs spinning rotor. This allows you to track spin speed progress during your recovery period and/or monitor strength gains if using Powerball to build strength and endurance.

PERFECT FOR ALL RACQUET SPORTS. ADD MORE POWER TO YOUR SHOT.
The Powerball is an excellent strength training device for all racquet sports, allowing you to get a little more power into your shots. As a physics teacher, I also find it to be a great teaching tool as I talk to my students about centripetal force and rotational inertia!
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE SAID
Very addictive and once you get the hang of it (in the first 5 minutes), you really can feel it working on your muscles. Brilliantly usable whatever you’re doing. Love it!
I can’t begin to say how great this product is, it has so many different techniques for building up wrist strength, bicep strength, pectoral strength and the health benefits like RSI.
I tried it out for so long when I got it I took a bit of skin off of my finger! but stuck a plaster on and in the first hour and a half I reached a speed of 10131.
All in all its great fun and addictive and with the benefits of increasing strength/rehabilitation, you can use it anywhere while reading a book, watching TV, running etc.
Well I would just like to say WOW!!!! it took me about five or ten minutes to get it to work and afer that I was hooked. I can definately feel the difference in my muscles which feels great by the way. I need to build up my strength as I am a mechanical assembler and do a lot of heavy lifting. I’m sixty years old and hope to benifit greatly from the exercises. I am a woman who likes to keep my shape and still have fun exercising, Powerball is doing all of this for me. Watching the saphire white light when the ball is spining increases the excitement and of course trying to beat my score is adictive. I can’t wait to show it to my friends, by the way I never did grow up 🙂
GET STRONGER WHILE HAVING FUN.
Here are two main reasons to get one of these. Strengthen your hand and arms. The second? To have fun!
If you’re looking for a way to strengthen your arm and hand, Powerball will definitely help you with this. Specifically, you have to hold on to it, so it works the gripping muscles of the hand. It also works the wrist muscles, because you have to rotate your wrist to keep the motion going. Lastly, your biceps will get a workout as well, because your biceps muscle helps turn your palm up (supination), which is one of the motions involved in keeping the gyro spinning.
If you are looking get the above muscles stronger and in better shape, then the powerball will certainly benefit you. Because it can spin progressively faster and faster as you get stronger, the powerball can provide you with a progressive resistance of sorts to get you stronger and stronger over time.
Now the second reason to get a powerball, for fun, really needs little explanation- it’s just too much fun seeing how fast you can get this thing spinning! Perhaps the only non-fun thing about it is that it does take a little practice to get the hang of it, and when you’re starting out and can’t keep it spinning, well, that can get a little frustrating. However, it doesn’t take long, and one thing that helped me in the beginning was to keep my elbow straight as I was practicing getting the technique down.
All-in-all a cool device and useful tool- don’t think twice and give it a try!
You will notice a difference in days.
“The repetitive movements of tennis regularly result in wrist, elbow and shoulder strains. 3 years ago one of our players began using a Powerball to help rehabilitate a wrist injury. I was highly sceptical about what this spinning ball could do and so was well surprised when it helped greatly speed their recovery. Since then we’ve been using Powerball for both rehabilitation and strengthening of our player’s arms and wrists.
It takes a little practice to get the movement right but once you perfect the technique and follow a simple programme you will definitely notice a positive difference in days.”

SPORTS REHABILITATION. BUILDING SHOULDER STRENGTH.
On the 8th of March last year, I tore a Rotator Cuff tendon in my right shoulder whilst playing squash. Before that day I was competing in long distance open water Masters swimming events, playing squash and golf regularly and loving it. I have seen many physiotherapists and consultant osteopaths, had an MRI scan and purchasing numerous products design to help me cure my shoulder. I’ve spent many hours exercising with bands.
However, after nearly eight weeks of using an amber Powerball 250 Hz Regular, I am convinced it has done the trick. I’ve recently bought a Vortex that I’m also very pleased with. I use it for about 30 minutes every day and plan to continue until the day I’m pushing up daisies.
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.

GOLFER'S ELBOW TROUBLES? 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.
***** Updated – very rarely have problem with my Golfers Elbow / Tendinitis, however, when I do, no medication required, I just use this ball until I get a burning sensation, I repeat as required over the following few days until the tendinitis has gone – son still uses the Powerball too it improves his grip and strength in his hands and arms for Mountain and Downhill biking. *****
BROKEN BONE REHAB. NO PROBLEM.
Here I am getting ready to take on the ‘Hand’ Jackie Johnson, 13 weeks after I broke my humerus and had a 6in plate with 8 screws put in it. Thanks to the best rehabilitation tool out there, Powerball..! As A Physician Assistant I would recommend this to any of my patients with hand, wrist or arm injuries!

Dr. Aidan W.D. Robinson, Rehabilitation Testimonial
My name is Aidan Robinson and I am a Chiropractor in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, UK.
For the past number of years, I have specialised in the treatment of disabled athletes and motorbike riders.
I find that Powerball works very efficiently to both strengthen grip and rehab arm conditions in both groups of sportsmen. Additionally, I find Powerspin to be highly beneficial for shoulder and upper back rehabilitation.
I personally use both products in my daily strength training sessions and have seen a measurable improvement in my workouts as a result.

Improve Rotator Cuff Flexibity & Strength with Powerball
I saw an advert for this saying it was good for shoulder pain. I have been suffering for well over a year now and daily use of the Powerball has made a huge improvement. I am expecting a full recovery with time.
Just a couple of minutes a day (literally) and my shoulder pain eased in 3-4 days. I try to use it every day to keep the joint working.
Physio recommended Powerball to me to rehabilitate my shoulder, glad he did, amazing product.
Extensive, easy to follow exercise guidelines to help with your rehab and strengthening.
An initial workout of 3 x 30 seconds spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days. Use your first session to establish the RPM at which you are challenged but can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.
Week 2:3 x 30 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
Week 3:3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days
Week 4:3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
Initial spin speed is determined by your personal strength and fitness level as well as whether you’re using the ball to rehabilitate a pre-existing injury or to help build muscle strength - always begin conservatively until you fully establish the spin speed at which your muscles are being challenged yet can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.
Progress is achieved by increasing duration and spin speed in conjunction with a regular exercise schedule. Should you experience any discomfort while exercising with Powerball® or Powerspin®, speak to your doctor or other qualified healthcare practitioner to get the best advice and support.
