If you want to develop serious hand strength for basketball then this basketball training equipment is for you. The Heavy Grips hand gripper series was developed for athletes who want to take the training of their grip strength to the next level. These high-quality aluminum-handled hand grippers are made in 50 lb increments from 100 lbs to 200 lbs so that you can train your grip similar to training any other body part - by increasing resistance.

- Dunking - Palm the ball by increasing your hand strength and then throw it down. No more losing the ball on the way up.
- Passing - Put more force on your passes and be able to control catches better.
- Rebounding - Having stronger hands means you'll be able to control the ball better even if it doesn't come right into your hands.
Shooting - Increase your range with increase hand and forearm strength
Which size should you choose?
100 "Beginner" - At the first squeeze, the HG100 may not seem to be much tougher than a store-bought plastic hand-gripper, but it's smooth action and aggressive knurled grip can be deceiving. The "Beginner" is perfect for consumers beginning their 'grip training' as well as younger athletes, female athletes, athletes with small hands and warm-ups for stronger athletes.
150 "Intermediate" - Consumers that have a fairly strong grip can usually squeeze out a few reps with the HG150, but it can be difficult for females and younger athletes although those athletes can easily work up to the HG150 in a short time with consistent training. Most athletes with consistent HG training will find that the HG150 only provides resistance for 3 to 15 reps for 2 to 6 weeks and they are ready to step up to the HG200 or beyond because the hand responds so well to resistance training with low repetitions.
"Advanced" -The HG200 is the level that even athletes with a naturally strong grip may have trouble closing. Athletes with advanced grip training will not have too much trouble with the HG200, but those with no grip training experience will most likely find it very difficult to close the HG200 at the beginning of their training. When you are closing the HG200 for reps, your performance for any sport using your hands will be greatly enhanced.
The Heavy Grip 100 takes 100 lbs of pressure to close, and the Heavy Grip 150 takes 150 lbs to close, and the Heavy Grip 200 takes 200 lbs to close. Compare that to most store bought hand grippers that only take 40 lbs to 60 lbs of pressure to close!!!
