Workout Those Hands with The Cats Paw

We (especially all us web junkies) use our hands a lot more than we think. The problem is that most of the time our hands are used forcefully in only one motion: The closing motion.

Even something as simple as typing is a closing motion that means that there is constant gripping, squeezing and constriction in your hands and wrists. Not good. Like any muscle in the body, the ones in your hands are no different; in order to keep balance we must exercise opposing muscles, which many of us don't even do in our larger muscles, let alone our hands. This constant repetitive and strenuous inward activity creates an imbalance that can lead to problems such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other overuse injuries.

The Cats Paw ($9.99) exercises the opening muscles of your hands and arms, which restores and maintains your body's natural balance. The Cats Paw counteracts all this constriction and restores balance by exercising the opposing muscles. It's easy, fast and affordable. I've been using mine for a few weeks now and my hands feel great. Whenever I am at a lack of words sitting here at my computer, I grab my Cats Paw and bang out a few reps -- Afterward my hands feel really good. (Plus it is an opportunity to stop staring at your computer screen for a minute.) Buy one today from CatsPaw.com.
