- This Grip Dynamometer makes it easy to measure the maximum isometric strength of the hand and forearm muscles (75kg / 165lbs power limit).
- Handgrip strength is very important for martial arts and any other sports in which the hands are used for catching, throwing or lifting.
- As a general rule people with strong hands tend to be strong elsewhere, so this test is often used as a general test of strength.
HOW TO USE IT
Hold the dynamometer in the hand to be tested. The handle of the dynamometer is adjusted if required - the base should rest on first metacarpal (heel of palm), while the handle should rest on middle of four fingers. When ready, squeeze the dynamometer with maximum isometric effort, which is maintained for about 5 seconds. No other body movement is allowed. Make sure to give a maximum effort!
