  • Hand grippers
    2 / 6 Hand grippers

    Working with hand grips will help build forearm muscles, and increase hand strength and dexterity. Although we don’t immediately think of it, grip strength is required in many areas of daily life – for example, when lifting an object or when opening a bottle. The ones at Daiso range in resistance from 5kg to 25kg.

  • Water bottle weights
    3 / 6 Water bottle weights

    These dumbbells, which come in different sizes, get heavy only after you put water in. Twist open the cap at one end, as you would a water bottle, and fill them up before use. When fully filled, they weigh between 0.5kg and 1.6kg. You can also opt to increase the weight by filling them with other materials like sand. These weights, made with lightweight plastic in a variety of colours, are also ideal for when you travel and do not have access to fitness facilities.
