SandBell Review in Men’s Health with Basketball star Dwight Howard on Cover
SandBell coverage continues since sandbells are the first innovation in free weights in decades where they are taking their place alongside dumbbells, medicine balls and kettle bells. In this issue of Men’s Health Magazine, the editors interviewed Jim Liston, a strength and conditioning expert who has trained elite athletes like David Beckham. Jim’s desire for a safe, effective free weight led to Hyperwear’s creation of the sandbell.
Men’s Health Magazine has featured Hyper Wear in the past, but this is our Sandbell’s first feature. If you haven’t run to pick up the latest issue, here’s what they had to say about the Sandbell:
Sling some sand around
This new dumbbell substitute builds your forearms
You may be used to lifting heavy, solid objects, but there’s value in going soft. SandBells, stretchy neoprene disks filled with sand, can be used like dumbbells, kettlebells, or medicine balls. “The shifting sand forces you to work your grip, which triggers more muscle activation in your wrists and forearms, “says Jim Liston, C.S.C.S., owner of Competitive Athlete Training Zone in Pasadena, California. They’re also easier on your joints. Sizes range from 2 pounds to 50 pounds. hyperwear.com
