David Horne's Vulcan & Thumb Screw

In 2008 David Horne came out with the Vulcan, (pictured on the right) and in 2009 he came out with an ttachment called a Thumb Screw (pictured on the left) that attaches to the ends of the Vulcan handles which converts the Vulcan into a pinch grip device for various exercises.

I can't say enough GOOD about these 2 pieces of equipment. I believe the Vulcan along with the Thumb Screw (sold seperately) is the most versatile Grip Tool on the market today. Also sold seperately is 2 different springs to use with the Thumb Screw. The orange spring is 40% weaker than the red/black spring that comes with the Vulcan and a white spring that is 60% weaker. To make it even more adjustable you can use rubber bands instead of the spring(s).

You can order your Vulcan and Thumb Screw from David Horne's website,

Hope you enjoyed this review and I know you'll enjoy the Vulcan/Thumb Screw.

Stay tuned and stay Strong!!!

O'Keeffe's Working Hands = GREAT STUFF!!!

I FINALLY found a hand creme that absolutely works virtually
over night.

O'Keeffe's is specifically designed for individuals that work
their hands really hard. It is chemically different than any other
hand-care product. The concentrated formula stimulates the skin's
natural repair process by hydrating skin, adjusting pH balance and
retaining moisture.

Easy to use. You apply it to your hands right before bedtime.
It causes your skin temperature to rise during sleep, resulting in
increased circulation and healing.

I've been currently doing a hand gripper program called Radical Reps Baseline Training (RRBT) from Bill Piche of the Grip Board and this program is very taxing on the hands due to the high volume of training. The first night I used O'Keeffe's I
knew the next day that this stuff works. My hands felt new again. Totally refreshed!

If you're hard on your hands because of your training or maybe your job, I don't think you can go wrong with this product. I found it at Lowes Hardware. I've not
seen it anywhere else.

Try it you'll LOVE it!!!

Stay tuned and stay STRONG!!!
