• Just bought a Powerball!

I bought a Powerball a couple of days ago from Amazon (Link: [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000GQP0QC/ref=ox_ya_oh_product[/url] for those interested) It arrived today and me and my dad were having a bash at it, and Jesus Christ almighty. It's amazing. It's so intense when it gets in the high revs. My highest rev at the moment is 9392. I can only sustain that for about 10 seconds or so. I'm looking forward to the improvements and I can't wait to see the results. Gonna be a God at playing mercy at school (haha kidding, no one plays that game anymore). So, any pro Powerball users out there who can give me tips? Already looked up all the excercises, and i'm working on them. What are your highest revs? Lets see who's the best.
What the fuck does it do? Does it just have a spinny thing inside?
I'd get one for the awesome noise they make when at high revs. You could probably generate electricity with those things.
So it's a gyroscope being marketed as an exercise device?
I have one too, it's great.
I have a burn scar on my arm from one of those, my friend revved it up so high and then touched my arm with it.

I have one, I span it really fast then threw it into my friends hands, he had burn marks :v:
I thought OP won the powerball lotto - phew. Thank god, a millionaire facepuncher would be chaotic. [img]http://www.joeschmidt.com/img/powerball.jpg[/img]
Haha, I wouldn't burn my friends with it, that's out of order. But it's funny when it gets to a certain point and it starts sliding out your hand and you start shitting bricks. They're powerful little bastards.

I've been thinking about buying one of these... But everytime i think i'd have more fun just fapping. Sure, not as good as "exercise" but a damn sight more fun :p:

LISTEN, i have one. Fucking epic in the start. Later on it dies.

lol
The ultimate wank-workout!
Two guys at school have powerballs. They are now known as fapballs.
That video said something about it being endorsed by members of the chiropractic profession. I wanted this at first, but now I have doubts, since they couldn't get actual doctors to sign off on it and instead chose to use fake ones.

Nothing i'd need.
I once got over 9000 revs
I've managed to get near 13k then died. gets so hard to do
People waste their money on exercise they could do just as easily for free.
[QUOTE=ChestyMcGee;18988182]People waste their money on exercise they could do just as easily for free.[/QUOTE] I didn't buy one for exercise these things are really fun to use!
I think we've got one of these lying around, it flashes when you use it :pcgaming:
Powerball. It's great, but it doesn't deliver the results it says it will. The only part of your body it will strengthen is your grip (forearm) Doesn't do much to your arms. Don't bother searching for results, they will be minute.
Looks REALLY fun, but is this UK only? I honestly want one! I bet I could use this to strengthen my hands for karate or something......because it improves grip strength, right? Also, that commercial video in the corner was quite silly. Has UK written all over it.

I had a powerball, till i brought it into school for my friends to use, my friend lost grip and it smashed through a window.
[QUOTE=Clever-Balls;18991175]Lol you do karate.[/QUOTE] Karate is fucking fun. I do MMA (mostly grappling) too, which requires a lot of grip strength (I have a good amount of grip strength, but having more is always good......though strength is NOT EVERYTHING; technique plays a big part in things. It's debatable though; I personally think it's half and half, while other people at my dojo, such as my sensei, think technique is much more important, like 75% worth).
