    are you really sure about that? its not high impact, and its low in mass. I would think that it would make it a LOT more safer than weight training or something impact heavy like Boxing.

    Yeah, I suppose if the weight was low enough you wouldn't run into problems, but it's more the tight grip you have to maintain while performing sudden, jerky movements that concerns me in terms of pulling or straining a muscle. I think as long as you're aware of how you're performing these movements, you should be fine - but it's definitely not a product I'm willing to try.

    Static contraction exercises have very limited usefulness when it comes to sports. You gain strength, mass, and muscular control by doing exercises in a full range of motion that work the muscles at all points.

    On top of that, full range exercises don't look like a collaborated effort between Richard Simmons and Rohn Jeremy.
