The Fistglove™ Stroke Trainer
The World’s First True Proprioceptive Teaching Device
HOW DO THEY WORK?
When Fistgloves™ are worn, they take a swimmer's hands out of the "balance” and “propulsive” equations. By wearing a slick latex covering on the hands, swimmers must create a balanced state through body position. Swimmers must propel themselves forward with the "under utilized" surface area of the forearms. When wearing Fistgloves™ the hands are "cloaked" thus making it easier for swimmers to become aware of the position of the forearms vis a vis creating propulsion and results in accentuating the “high elbow” posture underwater.
