Increase Cycling Endurance

Powerball’s unique resistance training is revolutionary in the way it strengthens the fingers, hands, wrists & arms. Isometric exercise with Powerball is most effective at building endurance as it replicates the pressure cycling puts on your muscles. Spin Powerball at fast speeds for as little as 3 minutes a day and notice the difference in your cycling in under two weeks. Powerball’s isometric exercise engages a far higher percentage of muscle fibres than isotonic exercise (weight training) does allowing you to achieve strength and endurance gains faster. Feel stronger, less stiff and more mobile even on longer cycles – it’s as simple as Powerball.

Rehab Injuries Like Handlebar Palsy

Handlebar Palsy (also known as Cyclists Palsy or ulnar neuropathy) is perhaps the most common cycling-related injury. Riding an improperly adjusted bike for long periods with the wrists compressed at an angle; or shock and vibration transmitted from the handlebars while riding across uneven terrain causes inflammation of the ulnar nerve running down the forearm into the wrist. This results in numbness, tingling, and pain, usually in the elbow, outer forearm, hands or fingers.

Isometric exercise with Powerball brings rapid relief to handlebar palsy. Powerball helps to significantly strengthen the forearm flexors & extensors which are the two main muscles in the lower arm. This allows for mobility and increases range of motion at the wrist joint. This unique form of training enhances muscle endurance and flexibility and helps greatly reduce the occurrence of dreaded Handlebar Palsy for cyclists.

Stay Protected While Cycling

Powerball is body armour for the wrists. Spinning Powerball for as little as 3 minutes a day is enough to significantly protect your hands, wrists and forearms and reduce the likelihood of sustaining an injury both on and off the bike. Exercise with Powerball allows for greater mobility, flexibility and endurance in your limbs and trains them to better cope with the pressure that comes with long cycling trips.

Use Powerball on a daily basis and/or before and after a cycle to warm up your wrists and keep stiffness from setting in during your ride. What is a great cycle if you’re left with painful wrists afterwards? Powerball allows you to cycle faster for longer while benefiting from active injury protection – always.

WEAK WRISTS AND DISCOMFORT AS YOU RIDE?
PROBLEM SOLVED.

At age 15, I fell from a tree, breaking my left arm at the wrist and metacarpal. After a long period of rehabilitation I regained mobility but the efficiency has always been weaker than the other hand. When I rode a bike or wanted to pick up something heavy, strong pain occurred in the wrist.

10 years later, I bought a motorcycle but couldn’t enjoy the ride because of wrist pain. One evening, while trying to find an online solution to the problem, I discovered Powerball®. I exercised regularly with the ball and after a few months I am pleased to say that the pain completely stopped and I could finally enjoy the motorbike! Thank you for this wonder!

WEAK WRIST AFTER A BREAK?
PROBLEM SOLVED.

I am a cycling instructor and travel everywhere by bicycle, so when I broke my wrist in a fall from my bike, I was devastated. Thankfully, A&E were able to manipulate my bones back into position without recourse to pins or plates.

A friend recommended Powerball® and I started with VERY gentle exercise for a couple of minutes, building up strength gradually. The physiotherapy I was given by the NHS was good but basic and my therapist was delighted with the progress I made as a result of Powerball®. My wrist is now back to almost full strength but I still use my Powerball®. I am amazed that something so simple can go from gentle exercise to really powerful exercise as the muscles and tendons start to regain their strength.

Perfect for all racket sports. Add more power to your shot.

Powerball is an excellent strength training device for all racquet sports, allowing you to get a little more power into your shots. As a physics teacher, I also find it to be a great teaching tool as I talk to my students about centripetal force and rotational inertia!

TENDINITIS IN THE HAND PREVENTING YOUR WORK?
PROBLEM SOLVED.

I’m 49 years old and work in a dialysis clinic where I must make a lot of accurate wrist movements from left to right and right to left many times daily. 7 years ago, I developed severe tendinitis and a cyst in my right hand.

I had surgery to remove the cyst but couldn’t cure the tendinitis. I went to a lot of doctors for rehabilitation but none of them could help me to get back to work. Then my son told me about Powerball® and I couldn’t let go of this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Powerball® to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Powerball® from that day and haven’t had tendinitis again. Thanks for giving me my wrist back.
