Muscle Guy is a Hand Strengthening Tool with a Personality
November 26th, 2013
The thing about exercise is that it’s hard to keep at it if you don’t have anything that’s motivating you to keep going. For some people, it’s fitting into a dress in time for someone’s wedding. For others, it’s simply a lifestyle choice.
Helping people on their path to stronger grips is Muscle Guy.
It’s basically a hand strengthening tool that comes with a comedic inflatable attachment. Each squeeze of Muscle Guy’s legs will transform an otherwise wrinkly-looking Muscle Guy into a figure with a buff and well-sculpted body.
Squeezing the handles to exercise the hand muscles causes air to fill an inner cavity. When the tool is used continuously, the muscle man fully inflates. He deflates when the tool is not used. This psychological hint should encourage regular exercise.
It’s neat in the sense that it gives you a preview of your rewards, should you choose to continue exercising. Muscle Guy is a Red Dot Design Award 2013 winner and was designed by Jia Siyuan, Zheng Dongping, and Xuan Xinle.
