Finesse, Endurance & Dexterity…FingerWeights Hand Exercises

If you’ve spent some time getting to know FingerWeights, both as a product and as a company, you’ll soon realize that everyone would benefit from a set. Whether you are middle aged, younger, older, an athlete, a musician, a painter, a gamer, or someone who is rehabbing an injury and needs to send 150 emails a day…your fingers and hands are extremely important! Right about now you’re probably thinking, “gee you’re kidding, I need my hands, had no idea those things at the end of my arm was important (sarcasm),” but the truth of the matter is most neglect their extremities. In fact, most of the world does so little for their hands, a company had to invent weights for the fingers…FingerWeights!

Below is a list of 10 exercises that can, and should, be conducted with FingerWeights. While the exercises themselves may seem obvious, the results certainly won’t be!

With your FingerWeights on (and the weight adjusted to your desired resistance level):

    2. Hold for 30-60 Seconds (or until the first sign of fatigue)
    3. Repeat with both hands 4-6 times each hand
  • FW Finger Stretch
    1. Place your hand/palm down on a surface
    2. Gently Straighten your fingers as flat as you can against the surface (NO FORCING)
