The D’Addario Varigrip Adjustable Hand Exerciser is a pocket-sized conditioning tool that provides strength, speed building, and maintenance for the entire hand, wrist and forearm. It allows adjustable tension to each spring-loaded piston for an isolated and individual finger workout, helping to develop strength and dexterity in the fingers, hands and forearms.

The Varigrip comes attached to a card; on the reverse side are listed 6 different hand exercises of which I use four. (See post on my blog for the exercise descriptions and illustrations I do: D’Addario Varigrip Adjustable Hand Exerciser

I purchased the D’Addario Varigrip Adjustable Hand Exerciser just over a month ago and have been using it for just a few minutes a day, twice a day. I am finding this a very good tool to build finger strength and practicing to apply pressure with each individual finger. For me, in the beginning the ring finger and the pinky were the hardest to depress even at the easiest setting, but I have seen improvement since I started using the Varigrip. Sometimes I work the fingers in order and separately 1-4 and 4-1, other times I work the fingers in the fingering pattern for the tune I am presently working on.

The Thumb Squeeze exercise has alleviated some of the pain I have at the base of my thumbs due to Basal Joint Arthritis. This has been a big plus for me. I do all the exercises mentioned above with both hands twice a day.

Since I have seen improvement in my finger strength, dexterity and endurance, I can recommend the D’Addario Varigrip Adjustable Hand Exerciser. It dies what they say as long as I use it as an exercise tool and not a paper weight!
