GREAT resistance (60KG) but BEWARE loose handles!!!

I’ve had a power twister for 30 years. Most people think it is tough, but it’s probably 30-40KG. And once you’ve got the technique it’s easy to get the reps going. I can get 50 before hitting a wall on it. THIS 60KG version, however, is going to be challenging for a while. I still have issues getting it going (break-in phase maybe?), but I can get 10 reps on it using decent form.
Works well. Get the 30kg to start and have the 40kg waiting in the wings

I ended up getting both the 30kg and 40kg models and unless you’ve already been doing a lot of upper body workout, the 30kg should be your starting point. As mentioned, this looks like a garage door spring with handles, but rest assured, it has plenty of tension and you’ll feel it when you start.

iHuniu – Portable Arm Strengthening Exercise Spring – Great for travel and/or to supplement home-gym exercise routine. What I like about this brand of power-twister spring for arm strengthening is that it is an extremely-well designed/engineered quality carbon-steel high-tension spring. I have had several power twisters over the years, and this is the best. It “allegedly” has an inner spring as a safety in the event that the spring fails. Also, the handle grips and straps are confidence-inspiring. Yes, these are all important considerations, especially “carbon steel;” which ensures the spring will last longer with less fatigue. When it does ultimately fail, the inner spring “theoretically” will keep the two fractured pieces from getting away from you and causing injury. The same is true for the straps. I have had an older-design power twister spring get away from me and it was NOT a pretty sight. About selection of tension/resistance level, i.e., rating in KG … I recommend buying the next lower rating than what you think you can handle, and don’t allow your decision to be led my EGO. The “temptation” is always to get a stronger spring with higher resistance. That’s a big mistake! I use the device to supplement other portable exercise equipment for travel, specifically the Bullworker Classic, Bullworker Pro, and Steel Bow. In that regard, the iHuniu is perfect, because it’s not feasible to haul free-weights on the road. Bottom-line, this is a great device for its indicated purpose, i.e., arm strengthening. Highly recommend, just use caution, keep the handles dry for a solid grip, and ALWAYS use the straps–no matter how few/many reps you do during any session to prevent potentially serious injury to you or others. There is an enormous amount of energy when the spring is totally compressed and it absolutely MUST be controlled. Proper care and good technique ensure that this practical/novel piece of exercise equipment can be used safely to tone and build muscle mass.
A little small, and could do with better grips, but great value.
(50 year old here ) I bought one of these as a replacement for my old “Spenby Musculator” bendy-bar, which I had for over 30 years before the spring finally kinked, though it kept the tension on well. I had no idea which kg-strength to get so I tried the 50 – too hard for me, I could do 2 or 3 then that’s it. I then bought a 40 which seems about right, I can rattle off a set of 10 or so while sitting at work waiting for things to finish on the computer, and without getting sweaty. My main grief with it is the size. Compared to the Spenby I was used to using this thing is about 5 inches shorter, and the handle-grips aren’t contoured with finger-separators. They also have flanges on the outside, which are unnecessary and reduce the hand-area still further. Increasing the overall length about 5 inches would make it feel a lot more natural ( maybe the designers of this were short people with small arms? ), and another 2 inches on the spring, then better handgrips. Still, for the price I like it a lot, so I’m going to order another 40kg one so I can have one at home and one at the office. I feel confident I’ll be on the 50 soon enough. Recommended.
I want a 90 kg power twister

When we first got the 80kg twister I couldn’t believe how difficult it was and I couldn’t do it the first day. You most definitely want to warm up before using it since it really takes strength to close it. I’ve been using it for close to a year and believe it or not I can do 100 reps straight in 5 mins. By the time I hit 100 reps I’ve got a good head sweat drip going. Quite the arm,shoulder, and back pump when I get out the 100 reps. Pretty much mind over matter after 50 reps and then it is just the process of keeping going until I hit my mark of 100. Wish they sold a 90 or 100 kg just to kick it up a notch. The orange handles were slipping so I cut pieces of 1″ bike inner tube and stretched them over the handles and this also greatly enhanced the grip. Never use without putting hands through the loops unless you want it to knock your teeth out and the handle loops have saved me from harm at least once. Also my son and I wear leather gloves when we use it. They do have a neat safety feature inside the coil spring and that is another smaller spring that will keep the coil from flying if it should fail. Saw that smaller spring when I had the orange handles off. My friends wonder why I have such incredible arm strength and grip strength when we workout at the gym. They are much larger than me but I out curl them quite easily. I tell them the power twister has something to do with it but they won’t get one. Oh well.

Once my daughter was born I had to put away the weight bench and some free weights so she would not hurt herself. This product is a nice, small portable workout bar that you can hide under your bed or wherever and get in a quick workout anytime. I had never used one so I started with the 30kg one. Glad I did, it was very tough at first. I used it like every other day for around 10min or so. After a few weeks of using I can bend it more easily and do several reps. It does feel like a pretty good workout. You may want to search youtube for exercises and how to use it. I do use some old lifting gloves with it just to get a better grip on the handles. Seems to make it easier to use that way. I would not really recommend for serious body builder types more for someone that just wants to tone up arms and upper body, that does not have hours a day. Good for parents with kids that don’t have much time for gyms etc. I may eventually move up to the 40kg after 6 months or so. Overall for the price I would say it is a good investment.

I’ve got two so far, this 40 and a 50, and also one I got at a swap meet a few years ago that is much easier to bend. I guess I might get the next harder one too. I only use it in the U shape because I don’t want it near my beautiful face in case the spring breaks, not that I’ve ever had one come close to breaking or heard of a case, but it’s just something I worry about like absorbing deadly rays which is why I never leave the house without tin foil wrapped around my head under my hat. Anyway, goofiness aside, these things are very excellent. Make you strong like me.
Great Product. 60 Kg probably the best all around one to get for most. Beware of slipping handles!!

I ordered the 50kg a while back. It was difficult at first as I had gotten into bad shape. Within just a couple of weeks of regular use I can really dominate this thing. So just doing lots of high reps finishing off with isometric holds to get a good workout from the 50kg. Just recently ordered the 80kg, it arrived just a couple days ago. I can not even break it without placing my knee in the middle of the spring to get leverage on it. Right now just using the 80kg for static/ iso holds for 10seconds or more then CAREFULLY releasing tension. Arms ,elbows, and shoulders are sore for a good 30min. afterwards. I like both the 50kg and the 80kg each has their purposes now. If I had to recommend JUST ONE I think that for most men either like me, out of shape or those in descent to good shape I think the 60kg would be the best all around one to get. Also, please CHECK THE HANDLES, both of the ones I ordered were not secured to the bar [not glued] easy fix though using 2 part epoxy or gorilla glue. Just pull the handles off the bar and brush some strong adhesive inside the orange handles and slide back onto the bar [let it set for a few hours or longer].Please check and glue if needed because of the amount of tension in these things. You wouldn’t want the handle to slip or slip off while using and hurt your wrist or worse busted teeth or jaw.
