Using your SideWinder™

Adjust your resistance with an adjustable, calibrated tension gauge that accommodates the youngest of beginners and the seasoned professional.

Adjusting your SideWinder™Turn the adjustable knob counterclock-wise until it stops, but never force it past this position. Now, turn the knob clockwise until the desired resistance is reached.

Your SideWinder can last any number of revolutions in either direction while maintaining the same resistance - just another way the Side-Winder stands apart from competitors.

As you get stronger, the SideWinder gets stronger, so you must pace yourself accordingly. Start with minimum tension and work up slowly to greater resistance.

A minimum of twenty repetitions for each position is recommended. Click here to see a typical workout routine.

Resistance & Repetition

Progressive resistance and repetition for a few minutes each day will keep muscles and tendons in top condition, which can:

  • Improve performance
  • Reduce injury and fatigue
  • Lead to success in your sport or rehabilitative physical therapy

Techniques and Instructions

The basic motion is a winding or squeeze-and-twist motion. You can twist with one hand or both. At the end of each workout, put your SideWinder in neutral by releasing the tension.

Horizontal grip

Horizontal Grip

Grasp each handle firmly. Extend arms straight out so the grips are horizontal. A simple winding, back and forth motion will increase strength from shoulders to fingers.

Vertical grip

Vertical Grip

Holding the SideWinder® parallel to your chest will tone the sides of the wrist, hands, forearms, and biceps. Reverse grips after each set.

Screwdriver grip

Screwdriver Grip

Holding one end of the SideWinder® at a 45° angle, apply a twisting motion using downward pressure with the other hand. Alternate hands after each set using both clockwise and counterclockwise motions.

Behind the back grip

Behind-the-Back Grip

Keeping the arms behind the back and as straight as possible, apply a winding motion. This exercise concentrates on the triceps and forearms.
