Forearm and Grip - Eagle's Claw

Post by KeepOnRunnin » Fri Aug 27, 2010 11:57 pm

Hello everyone,
I was looking for some good exercise to do at home, without weights or at a desk to improve my grip/forearm strength. I looked into Gripmaster and thought about using rubber bands to even out the forearms, but I also came across the Eagle's Claw http://www.pro-xsports.com/images/produ ... e_claw.jpg and was wondering would this work the extensors as well, when you release your grip and there is resistance going back to the initial position or would the flexors in the end just be working twice as hard? Any other suggestions?
- Thank you for your help!

I've got one of those - garage sale find! It doesn't seem to have any negative portion of the exercise - you squeeze it in and then let it out. I never use it, I find rice digs work better for the same motion.
