About:

The Iron Power Force One Gyro utilizes German precision engineering to create up to 16,000 rpm and 50 pounds of silky-smooth dynamic resistance in the palm of your hand. Describing the Iron Power experience is challenging at best, because you have never felt anything like it before. The faster the Iron Power Force One Gyro spins, the more resistance is automatically added. This product is perfect for the experienced Powerballer, Mixed Martial Artist or extreme athlete looking for a challenge or a way to get a competitive edge in their sport of choice. Metal display case included.

This gyro is cool! I like the extra weight, however; I don’t like how it doesn’t have the meter and it can’t be attached either.

I found that the lighted plastic Powerball spins better than the stainless steel, it’s more fluid and can achieve higher speeds. However; the weight of the steel version is much heavier and doesn’t have obnoxious blue lights. It also doesn’t hum as loud.

I am going to use the lighted Powerball after the gym and at home and I am going to use the stainless steel on the bus and subway during my commute home from work.

I used it today on base and the overall negative remarks, were masturbation based lol. Once, a few of the guys made their jokes and negative remarks, the other guys that tried it, (once they learned the motion again) liked it. They said that it really burned their grip and forearm. When I made them hold their arm over their head then you kick in your shoulder and it starts to burn also.

**Update** April 9th 2014
Nothing is making my forearms explode as much as this ball!! They are soooo swollen with blood! Does it build the forearm? I don’t know, don’t think so, I think the grips (Fat Gripz, TGrips) build them and the ball explodes them and in conjunction your arms get massive!

I am lying off the Grips for a while and seeing how the Powerball and Dynamax expand my arms. Does it just give them a pump or does it actually tear and expand the muscle?

**Update** April 21st 2014
I am still using my Dynamax and powerballs every other day as an addition to my workout. I use it at home while watching tv.

Let me tell you about this little machine! This thing is going to make me a monster! I had a slap repair of my right shoulder 2 years ago and my shoulder has never been the same! It took over a 1.5 years for it to stop aching daily. Now; it’s still not where it was before the injury, because the little stabilizer muscles have not recovered. With weightlifting movements are slow and controlled and squeezing the muscle. With this you rotate as fast as you can.

I watched the video and some of the moves are overhead; normally with arms extended straight in front my shoulders are burning. Overhead they have gone from burning to on fire!!

This machine is going to rebuild my shoulder and then some! It’s going to strengthen my joint which will allow me to lift more weight and put my size back on!

My hands and forearms are on fire! With the powerball

My rear delts which is what I need to rehab!!! Is on fire with the Dynamax!

I was standing and my front delts were on fire and then I did it lying on my back in bed and that’s what burned my rear delts!

**Update** April 4th 2014
I used the Dynamax Split Core today and I was demonstrating it to a bunch of guys on base and getting them to try it. I got a bunch of split reviews. A couple were having trouble with the motion, once they learned it, they said it was cool and it burned. They others said the motion looked gay especially the golfing club motion. Lol they also made a comment of the powerballs check that review for their response.

Tomorrow I should be filming a few videos!

20140402-183835.jpg

**Update** April 9th 2014
The videos are being edited and will soon be posted on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

I love this machine I have been doing 2-3 sets of a couple minutes a day and burning my shoulder out! As well as my arms. The only drawback I see is the price tag! The spilt core unit has a hefty $500 price tag. I don’t see the average consumer spending that. However; I urge rehab centers (physical therapists) to purchase at least one of these for your facilities! This will make excellent strides in labrum and rotator cuff recovery.

The standard unit is still $299 which is also hefty, but worth it! Especially if you are recovering from either, shoulder or biceps surgery, even pectoral surgery.

There is a similar device called the Burn Machine that simulates speed bag training with slight resistance available. However; they declined to be reviewed, so I can’t say how good of a product it is. I haven’t touched it, not sure of its quality or if it has a similar effect. All I know is your hands also go in a circle. However their circles are much larger.

With the small tight circles of the Dynamax it forces your muscles to contract and if you mess up the motion the Dynamax jerks and makes you stabilize it. I can tell you when your shoulders are burning big time, you don’t want to have to stabilize it!! Ouch 😭 it burns so bad!

Does the Burn Machine do that? We will probably never know…

**Update** April 17th 2014
After continued use I figured my tolerance would get better… No! It still burns the hell out of my shoulders quickly! Probably because I can rev it faster!

**Update** April 21st 2014
I am still using my Dynamax and powerballs every other day as an addition to my workout. I use it at home while watching tv.

No this is not a shake weight and nothing like a shake weight! It produces torque making you contract your muscles to control it and the faster the speed the more torque, the more torque the more burn!

This ball is cool, it burns your forearms, wrist and grip! I think it’s a great tool to use on arm day after burning out your arms and grip with Fat Gripz, Grip4orce or Ironbull Strength TGrips (whichever your prefer) and totally torch your grip, forearms and wrist afterward!

I found that this one spins better than the stainless steel, it’s more fluid and can achieve higher speeds. However; the weight of the steel version is much heavier and doesn’t have obnoxious blue lights. It also doesn’t hum as loud.

I am going to use this one after the gym and at home and I am going to use the stainless steel on the bus and subway during my commute home from work.

I used it today on base and the overall negative remarks, were masturbation based lol. Once, a few of the guys made their jokes and negative remarks, the other guys that tried it, (once they learned the motion again) liked it. They said that it really burned their grip and forearm. When I made them hold their arm over their head then you kick in your shoulder and it starts to burn also.

**Update** April 29th 2014
I received the counter for the Powerball today and of course there were no installation directions, so I found a video on YouTube on how to clean it. Then it wasn’t to bad, trying to pop it apart was the hardest part!

Stay tuned for further review!
