Pros: Quick, Easy, May Build Strong Fingers, Wrists, Forearms
Summary: Easy to Use and Quick - a Flexxing, Mini-Workout with the Pre-Loading Feature. Would enjoy a Download of a Full Workout so a timer is not needed. Overall, a Great Value.
Appearance: A black shaft with grips on either side and a soft, vinyl covered dense, foam-like material in the middle.
Workout: I performed the workout with arms only, with a golf club, and with the Golfflex - and the Golfflex stretch was clearly superior in terms of working various muscle groups and feeling the stretch. In 5 minutes, you have a quick flexxing workout.
What it Does - the preloading works the thumbs, fingers, wrist, forearms, and biceps to an extent in addition to helping you generate more flexibility. Because of the preloading, the flexing of the shaft - you are obtaining a general pre-workout with your flexx. I might even grow wrists and forearms.
Exercises: The DVD offers 5 exercises to hold for 20-30 seconds. You can add more as you wish - I typically will bend from the waist with a straight back while preloading the Golfflex; I will also stretch my legs while using the Golfflex. The only addition to the system I suggest is a workout DVD in realtime so I don't have to glance at my watch; or instead of a DVD, allow owners to download a workout to their computer.
Results: I am installing a center pivot swing and had ... a tough time with the right side tilt on the downswing - it was uncomfortable and affecting my swing. After several sessions, about 4-5X per week, for 2.5 weeks, the Golfflex has improved my right side tilt.
Verdict: Great value. Golfflex works and I use it frequently.
