Hopefully this will help. It has been 3 days since the scary descent and my forearms are still a little sore. Two days ago I could hardly type. Diane recommended this little toy to help build up my grip strength. I hope it works. I have little bitty girl hands and since my crash they've been weaker than ever. Turns out just pedaling on the trainer or the spin bike does nothing for your grip because you never get to brake. I thought about adding a grip workout to my muscle class but I don't think the ladies at Gold's Gym are as worried about working their wrist extensors as I am.
