When I started using hand strengtheners, I did not know much about the subject and I can honestly say that I probably lost a couple of years using poor quality models. However, I finally managed to find the best hand strengthener, and it has been great for me. I was able to recover from an injury I had a couple of years ago climbed with friends and I did not have any pain or discomfort.

But I know that many of you are going through the same thing that I did when I started using these devices. I understand the frustration of buying a new exerciser whose materials are weak and soon begin to notice how they are yielding or even pistons that are damaged or lose resistance to the month of use. For that reason, I hope to help you with this article so that you never have a bad hand strengthener.

The best hand strengtheners

What is the best hand strengthener?

This question is always difficult to answer because it is a very subjective concept for many users. Some focus more on having an economic model, while others prefer to run away from cheap products and focus on materials, for example.

In any case, I have applied all the knowledge I have gained with the years of use of these hand exercisers and that is why I have created the following comparative list with six high-quality models. I am sure that at least one of them will be ideal for you and that you will take it home to exercise immediately.

Apart from that, later I will talk about the criteria you must have when choosing one.

Choosing the best hand strengthener

Learn to find the best in the market by looking at these simple aspects:


It must be aesthetically attractive since no one likes to have ugly and not very modern devices. It should also be practical since it can be one of the factors that makes us use the hand exerciser to a greater or lesser extent.


You can find them made with metal or plastic. While the former are clearly much more resistant, the latter are more comfortable and practical because they are lighter, versatile and portable. Also, the plastic ones are made for people with the most delicate hands or with little strength and dexterity.

Adjustable Grip

For the rehabilitation of injuries or improve your grip, it is necessary to use a hand strengthener for a few years in 3 levels of intensity. That said, you could buy one with adjustable difficulty levels or simply purchase three different models.

Hand size

Like any exercise equipment, this device for improving the strength of the hand, fingers, wrist and forearm comes in different sizes, so be sure to choose the one that is the perfect size for your hand. Neither bigger nor smaller.


In this way, a large part of the comfort you will feel when using the product and, being a fundamental part of the design, is a decisive factor in knowing how much you will use it. Look for it to be an ergonomic and easy to use way.

Benefits of using a hand strengthener

Did you already know its benefits? Let’s take a closer look.

Develop the forearm muscles

Do not forget that not only do they serve to exercise the hands, but they are also ideal for the muscles of the forearm, which are activated by moving the fingers. That’s why they are perfect for climbers, for bodybuilders, for tennis players and many other athletes.

Improve the resistance of the hand

If you have tired carrying luggage or super bags too heavy, I recommend you keep the same position in the device for a few seconds to notice substantial improvements in the resistance of your hands.

Weightlifters and climbers increase grip strength

A good strengthener can improve athletic performance in the gym or any other sport by developing the skill of your hands and the power of grip.

Offers greater dexterity with hands

You will have much greater dexterity with your hands and fingers when grasping objects, applying pressure, holding yourself, etc. That’s why they are perfect for guitarists, drummers, pianists and violinists, as well as other musicians.

Improve workouts

If you do not have the necessary strength and skill in your hands, some exercises and routines will be impossible. With a good strengthener, you can ignore all these impediments.

Lowers blood pressure

They do not replace cardiovascular training, but they can relieve stress and allow to improve blood pressure after six months of daily use, decreasing risks of diseases and heart problems.
