Product Review: The Pronator
The Pronator is a tool developed by a Dr. Jonathan Rosploch, DPT, BS, CSCS, MFR.
It's an innovative variation on the hammer that many use in the clinic for supination/pronation exercises. Instead of having a hammer at the top of the handle, there is a easy to use clasp, similar to what you would find on ski boots or roller blades.
You can either use a dumbbell, or resistance bands. Resistance bands in particular add an entirely new dimension of added resistance, progressing some of your favorite exercises. Below are some quick videos I shot with my colleage, Chris Nentarz, PT, of CrossFit Nickel City in Buffalo, NY.
