The idea of a windshield wiper exercise is to put a pair of wipers on a player’s arm, but the challenge comes when the player tries to control the wind from behind the wipers, which are designed to deflect and deflect, not bounce, the wind, a University of Georgia study suggests.
The University of South Florida team’s study, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, found that the wiper exercises, which involve using the wipercontrolled arm and forearm to deflect the wind around the body, increased player fatigue and lowered their success rate.
The study found that participants who had a weak arm and wrist did better in the windshield wiper exercises than those who had stronger arms and wrists.
“The results of the current study support the idea that the wrist and wristwipers are a good tool to use to improve the overall player fatigue in windshield exercises,” lead author and graduate student Justin O’Brien, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, said in a press release.
“It’s a little bit of a game changer, and we want to get it to the next level.”
Windshield wipercons, also known as wipercone exercises, are designed for people with shoulder injuries to have them strengthened.
They are commonly used in golf tournaments because they can be difficult to execute and are typically done in a closed practice environment.
But the University of Florida team, led by doctoral student and windshield wrench expert Robert Lutz, says the wipertraining exercises are more than just wristwipes.
“Widgets are actually a great way to improve your wrist strength,” he said.
“If you can’t control the direction of the wind and you need to do wristwiping to avoid hitting a ball, the wristwiper is a great alternative.”
The team has developed a wristwipe that can deflect and redirect the wind to deflect it from behind, which they call the “wiper blade” exercise.
The wiper blades are attached to the player’s wrist with a special cable.
They rotate in opposite directions to deflect incoming wind and allow the player to control it, the team said.
The team found that people who had weak wrist muscles and/or shoulders did better at the wiperbill exercise.
“Our research suggests that we can improve the efficiency of the wrist wipercon exercise by increasing wrist strength and improving the wrist motion,” Lutz said.
Researchers say the wrist wiper exercise is a good alternative to wrist wipers because it can help players with shoulder problems, including back pain.
The research was funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.
