Your Last Breath Restored Our Voice

As I listened to George Floyd take his final breaths of life, he cried out PLEASE, 14 times. I don’t believe his plea was just for the officer to remove his knee off his neck—his cry was for America to remove its knee and stop suffocating from racism, stereotypes, inequalities and overall injustices.

George, your last breath restored our voice.

Each of our communities have contributed to this continuous cycle of racial inequalities. There is NO in between or a BUT.
Either you are anti-racist or you are racist.
Either you embrace your teammate as your brother or sister or you don’t.
Either you deal with your stereotypes that create racist judgements or you don’t.

George, your last breath restored our voice.

We were afraid to tell you POWERHANDZ was founded by 2 brilliant black people who risked everything—-our 401K, time with our 2 young children, our personal health at times, to design products and a brand that will UPLIFT our communities by making you STRONGER. For 6 years, we have seen your color, we hear your desire to get better and we LOVE everyone in all 86 countries who sacrificed your dollar to support our mission.

POWERHANDZ and its POWER TO GIVE Foundation understands the black community and the history of our journey. We will always stand with you. We commit to being a stronger bridge to UNITY and will make sure our voice is the change that creates change.

George, you are our HERO. The last moments of your life was not filmed for us to repost on social media. Your last breath was taken to restore our VOICE. Thank you for breathing life into hearts again.

Grateful,
Danyel Surrency Jones
President, Power To Give Foundation

We’re Here For You, Texas

How POWERHANDZ is working to keep our communities safe.

As you may have seen on the news, Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas businesses, such as gyms and exercise facilities will reopen on May 18th. The only thing is, there are some specific guidelines that must be followed. They are:

  • Customers must wear gloves that cover their whole hands and fingers
  • Gyms must operate at 25% capacity
  • Showers and locker rooms must remain closed during the first phase (Restrooms will be open)
  • All equipment must be disinfected
  • Must maintain 6-feet social distancing inside the gym
  • If gym-goers bring a yoga mat or other equipment from home, it must be disinfected before use

To some, these changes may be challenging, but for us, we believe this is an opportunity for everyone to get stronger, faster, and more powerful while keeping everyone safe.  Continue reading We’re Here For You, Texas

Take Your Team to the Top With POWERHANDZ

How coaches can add POWERHANDZ products to everyday training routines.

In virtually every sport, athletes are getting faster, stronger, and more competitive. This means two things – competitions are getting more exciting as talent increases and that it is becoming harder for athletes to keep up if they’re not putting everything they have into training. Our team at POWERHANDZ noticed the gap separating good athletes from great athletes growing many years ago and decided that we needed to find a way to help all athletes train purposefully. This meant creating products like our Weighted Football Gloves with Anti-Grip Palms to make catching the ball more difficult and our POP UP DEFENDER to simulate real-life defenders for athletes to maneuver around in training so that once they’re on the playing field, they can dominate. We’re focused on empowering all athletes with our technology so that they can perform at the absolute highest level.

For many years now, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the top athletes in the NCAA to get ready for the NFL Combine plus we’ve helped some of the top NBA players tighten up their handles for game day, so we know exactly what goes into getting someone to the top of their game. We have the technology and tools to make a player faster and more effective on the playing field than ever before and believe that with the right coach using our products, there are no limits to what people can accomplish. Since we care about coaches greatly and they are the MVPs, as well as student athletes, we came up with some ways that you can take your team to the top with POWERHANDZ products at practices, camps, or clinics.

Coaches can also get 10% off of all POWERHANDZ products!

Weighted Anti-Grip Football Gloves

Not only do our Weighted Anti-Grip Gloves make catching the ball harder, but they have added weight that makes every single movement harder. By adding weight to the end of your wrists, you actually strengthen your kinetic chain which allows you to move better and more efficiently across the playing field. Whether you are training your starting point guard to tighten up their handles or are looking to increase the speed of your top-ranked cornerback, POWERHANDZ is perfect. Here is a workout with the gloves that we absolutely love for our football players:

  1. Have a player put on our Weighted Anti-Grip Football Gloves. Once they’re on and feeling good, have them do quick steps for 20 yards while rapidly moving their hands as well.
  2. Once they’re looking fast and are feeling good, blow your whistle and have them stop in place and then blow it again for them to continue on. This will not only enhance their ability to change gears, which is crucial in sports.

Some additional drills that are ideal with POWERHANDZ are running routes to enhance proprioception while having to make grabs under pressure and doing quick feet movements on a ladder wearing POWERHANDZ to make it more challenging. With the added weight of our Weighted Gloves with Anti-Grip Palms, every single training exercise is that much harder so that when game time comes around, players are unstoppable.

POP UP DEFENDER

For those coaches that want to simulate real-life defenders during practice, the POP UP DEFENDER is ideal. It is lightweight, easily collapsible, can be used to store training gear and can be used for many different sports ranging from basketball to football to soccer. We’ve heard numerous coaches say, “There’s nothing that can prepare you for the game like competing under pressure,” and that is exactly what we’re creating with the POP UP DEFENDER. Whether you’re a basketball coach striving to help players maneuver their way to the hoop or are a football coach hoping to elevate your WR’s cutting abilities, we’ve got the tool you need to help them dominate. For all of our basketball coaches, here’s a great drill we love:

  1. Put two POP UP DEFENDERS on the right and left side of the foul line.
  2. Have a player run up from the baseline to accept a pass and quickly turn around the POP UP DEFENDER and head to the hoop to complete a layup.
  3. Once your players have mastered this and feel comfortable, move the POP UP DEFENDERS to the 3 court line and have players run up to the POP UP DEFENDER, accept a pass, dribble around the first POP UP DEFENDER and head to the other one.
  4. Once making it to the second POP UP DEFENDER, have them pull up and knock down a 3.

This simulates real-life movements in a game and will teach players exactly how they should maneuver around defenders. Since we’ve introduced the POP UP DEFENDER, we have had numerous coaches reach out to us to let us know all about how much more intelligently their players work around the court. Whether you train a young AAU team or are working with pros, there is a place for the POP UP DEFENDER. Recently, Lebron James was even filmed working out with one of our POP UP DEFENDERS! If they work for King James, then we know it is effective.

POWERFIT Gloves

From the playing surfaces right to the gym. This is where our POWERFIT Gloves thrive. They are weighted, which makes every movement more difficult, strengthening the kinetic chain, and they are breathable for even the hardest gym workout. These have become a hit amongst personal training coaches because they can be worn during an entire workout. From shadow boxing to benching weights to doing push-ups, the POWERFIT Fitness Gloves are ideal. You can also pair them with our POWERSUIT. We also have our next-generation high-performance POWERFIT Training Gloves, which are great for our boxers. For coaches that want to get the most out of their athletes in the gym, our POWERFIT gloves are a must because they purposefully add weight to every movement whether that athlete is working on strength solely or are rehabbing.

Here is a great gym workout that we love in our POWERFIT Gloves.

  1. Burpees! Have your athlete start on the ground on their stomach elbows up. Have them do a push-up and then pop up to their feet.
  2. Once they’re on their feet, have them drop back down into a push-up position and then lower down. This process can be repeated based on the fitness of your athlete.

After making every motion harder, that very same athlete that took part in the burpees exercise will be able to move easier and more efficiently due to a strengthened kinetic chain. These gloves help increase proprioception as well, which is great for all athletes.

At POWERHANDZ, we are focused on enhancing human performance and rehabilitation efforts on a global scale with our technology. Our innovative designs allow us to provide coaches and athletes with the tools they need to become better competitors than they ever thought possible.

Train Harder with POWERHANDZ

So you find yourself wishing you could get a little extra out of your workouts. You’ve tried adding additional sets, increasing your protein intake, and doing everything you can for your post workout results. It just still isn’t enough!!! What can you do? Take your workouts to the next level with lightweight gloves on your hands. The #POWERHANDZFAM wants you to train with purpose, which is why we have designed our POWERFIT gloves. They won’t weigh you down, but they will give you some explosive results. No matter you are training for, whether it’s a championship game or just to improve health and well-being, you want to the best results possible. Let POWERHANDZ help you maximize your workouts.

Builds more muscle

Everyone can appreciate some extra muscle growth. Wouldn’t you like to be able to lift an extra 10-15 pounds? Our gloves can help you get that additional strength boost. The extra weight in the gloves helps you gain some additional training in every routine you do. This is an old training technique known as weight training, which involves going through a normal training routine with extra weight for improved results. Two people can do the same routine for 3 weeks and the one who was weight training will have better results. We have brought this ancient technique into the modern age with our gear.

Increased speed

The only thing more important than strength is speed. Think about it, what sport doesn’t rely on speed? Can you name one athletic event that needs to be done slowly? When you train with lightweight on your hands, your hand and arm speed will drastically increase. Weighted training doesn’t just increase strength but also your speed. This occurs since your body becomes adjusted to working out with a certain weight on it. After you remove that extra weight your reaction time, reflexes, and overall speed will be leagues better than they were before. Our gloves help you take your speed for any sport to the next level.

Increased confidence

We love seeing the faces and hearing the stories of athletes that take the POWERHANDZ off and smoke the competition. Our gloves don’t just help you improve physically, they help you improve mentally. The athlete that is strong mentally and physically will crush the one that is only strong in the body every time.

We don’t want you to just train well, we want you to train like a beast. We know you can become a legend and we’ve made gear specifically to take you there. No matter what sport you play, we have the equipment to make you a champion. Basketball, baseball, MMA, and just about every other sport is in our sights. We want players to train with purpose for even better results. Once you start training with POWERHANDZ, you’ll wonder how you ever did it without us. To learn more about us and what it takes to be the best, check out our blog.
