Having a strong grip Be it carrying baggage, tending your backyard, or playing with your children. A firm grip makes you feel able and confident.
Our ability to grab, hold, twist and squeeze is essential for many everyday functions. Grip training helps us achieve the optimum strength necessary to perform all these tasks. They help to keep our hands functional despite our age.
In 2014, Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences analyzed that more than 20,000 adults aged 65 and older have shown a link between weak grip strength and lack of mobility.
In 2011, a group of kinestheticians found that grip strength is one of the strongest predictors of overall muscle strength and endurance.
Just open the app and set your benchmark strength by evaluating your grip for both left and right hands individually.
Train your grip with in-app routines and exercises
Squegg app keeps track of your squeeze count, the number of times you have completed an exercise, and your grip strength.
Have you always looked for a blood pressure-lowering device? Worried about your increasing blood pressure? Just do 12-minute isometric handgrip training and see the change yourself. The drop in your blood pressure is equivalent to the drop you get when you lose 12lbs of body weight.
According to a study published in the Harvard Newsletter, people practicing grip training showed a decrease of 14 points in their systolic blood pressure.
In the isometric exercise section, set your desired benchmark grip strength, target grip range, and exercise time.
Squegg's in-app Isometric Exercise Feature guides you through the exercise. It has sound mechanics and clear guidance to help you be within the target range of 30-40% of your benchmark strength.
Towards the end of the exercise, the app shows you your statistics and the number of seconds you were in the target grip range.
Studies suggest that grip strengthening exercises help refine and improve motor skills. Having fine motor skills aids cognitive growth and improves mental agility.
