Isometric resistance training is a superior strength building technique that is also much easier on the joints than other more stressful forms of exercise such as weight training. The Grip Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener is a new isometric resistance trainer from Hammacher Schlemmer that combines advanced technology with this proven form of strength building exercise.
The Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener is an effective way to achieve a muscle-strengthening upper body workout without all the stress and wear and tear on your joints, ligaments and tendons. To use the device you push and pull on the isometric resistance trainer’s handle grips without moving your upper body joints. This creates the same strength-building resistance training as free weights without the stressful and potentially damaging impact on your joints.
This low impact device is also perfect for improving bone density and recovering from muscle loss. The isometric trainer can be used to perform up to 23 different exercises that help strengthen and tone your arms, shoulders, chest, and back. The Grip Isometric Resistance Upper Body Strengthener has a programmable timer and will automatically monitor the applied force. It displays the readouts from your workout on the integrated backlit LCD allowing you to set important workout goals and measure your progress.
The isometric resistance trainer runs on one 9-volt battery. Weighing only 2 1/2 pounds, the isometric resistance upper body strengthener is a powerful and effective electronic fitness device with a convenient, compact and portable design.
