    Have you seen this, if so, thoughts?

    I'm still trying to figure out what, if any, practical applications it has....in other words, is it for conditioning, strength....what do you think?

    looks like it might work your grip ok.....but w/o being able to add resistance it would soon be rendered useless

      That's an odd one. Seems like limited utility to real world performance compared to products like fatgripz, rope chins, battle ropes, sledge/tire work. Working the muscles of the forearms is simple enough, and that gadget does not increase grip strength. Initial impression is it's more gimmick then substance. What we all need in our collection is the shake weight! Yes, this is for real and sold in stores:

        yep, those were my initial thoughts as well.....can't see spending the money that I can do by wringing a wet towel over and over again.

        Ahh, the shake weight, a beautifully made invention...lmao. Why, I ought to just shoot myself with the taser over and over again, after all, it is electro stim at its best.

              That makes more sense and better mimmicks the normal patterns of movement for the forearm and is similar to what the forearm is doing during battle ropes, or club swings, sledge work, etc. I don't know if it will give superior effects compared to other options per se, but it makes more sense then other gismo above, at least from my initial impressions. Report back with your findings.

                What can you guys tell me about battle ropes? I watched a youtube clip because I had no clue what it was. Are they just regular ropes, like climbing ropes, or is it some kind of specialized rope? What are the ropes attached to, just any stationary objects?
                I'm interesting in developing my lower arms, but don't know many practical exercises for it. (insert masturbation joke here) I do farmer's walks sometimes. Also, what is sledge work. I go to a Crossfit gym a couple days a week and I see they have the sledge hammers, but I've never actually done a workout where we've used them yet.

                  If that's all you are looking for, there's way cheaper easier things to use then battle ropes. Battle ropes are good for various things, like conditioning, arm work, etc, and can be used in various ways, but they are not cheap and take up a lot of room. Cheap, effective, etc:

                  A sledgehammer, a big old tire, you smashing it. Very taxing and great for functional fitness. Google/youtube will turn up info there.

                    Thanks a bunch! I think the fat gripz might be worth a shot.
                    I also really wanna try a Crossfit workout that incorporates the sledge and tire. Will definitely ask about it this evening.

                      Fifteen to twenty minute time limit: Farmer's Walks (heavy) immediately followed by 20 sledgehammer swings (10 swung from each side)........ rest for sixty seconds..........as many rounds as possible. Tell me how your forearms feel afterwards.......
