Marcy Wrist and Forearm Developer Review
Designed to strengthen the forearm, wrist and fingers, the Marcy Wrist and Forearm Developer enhances your grip strength by building the extensor and flexor muscles. The mechanism provides perfect support for your forearm and wrist for superior comfort and safety, and the variable resistance allows you to measure the progress. The grip is adjustable enough to provide comfortable fit for different arm and hand shapes, so all you need to do is rock your wrist back and forth in order to build strength in your hands and arms.
For forearms, wrists and fingers
The Marcy Wrist and Forearm developer is perfectly designed to target the extensor and flexor muscles in the arm. It also strengthens the fingers to increase grip strength and is perfect for injury recovery exercises.
The adjustable grip of the Marcy Wrist and Forearm developer allows you to find the ideal fit for your forearms. The grip ensures that each targeted muscle group receives sufficient tension to facilitate development. Use the little red knobs to adjust the position of the grip to fit your forearm.
However, Marcy could have further improved their product by adding a padded layer where the wrist rests. Even on first try you can feel the hard plastic rubbing against the wrist, which might become somewhat painful until your skin gets used to it. I personally overcame the discomfort after the second use in two days. If you have a thin and sensitive skin, as well as forearms, make sure to use it just about 3-5 minutes the first session, as to strengthen your arm and avoid any future discomfort.
This ingenious piece of strength equipment measures 14.5 inches in length, 6 inches in height and 8 inches in width, which makes it compact enough for easy and convenient storage and movement. It is a piece of equipment that you can put in your bag and take anywhere with you.
The variable resistance system of the Marcy Wrist and Forearm Developer monitors your progress by increasing resistance during the concentric phase of the lift, thus ensuring efficient performance with a number of arm exercises.
It features options for adjusting the grip for greater comfort and the resistance level for increased intensity. It offers five resistance levels, which is a bit on the low side, especially for people at advanced fitness levels. A higher number of resistance levels would have definitely left more room for growth and development. But you can always get there with more and faster repetitions, to activate your fast-twitch muscles.
However, the lower end of the resistance level makes the Marcy Wrist and Forearm Developer a perfect tool for injury recovery and gradual regaining of grip strength.
Excellent value for the money
The Marcy Wrist and Forearm Developer with its numerous features is perhaps one of the best forearm training items on the market, and definitely an excellent value for money. It comes with a 2-year warranty, so you can order the product and enjoy it hassle free for quite a long time.
