You actually do not want to do this/use these. The problem is that they do more harm than good. You want your hands to be loose and fast not strong. For example, if you wanted to run marathons you practice running, pacing yourself and staying loose. Not weight lifting or muscle strenghening.
Think of it this way, who is going to run faster for a longer period of time? A marathon runner or a power lifter or even better yet a sprinter? If you look at a marathon runner their legs are lean and loose as opposed to a sprinter who's legs are muscular and tight.
By the time you are 3-4 years old the muscles that move your fingers (that are actually in your inner forearm not your hand. Place your opposing hand on your inner forearm and move your fingers and you will see what I mean) are already fully developed.
So by using these trainers your hands get stronger but the speed and looseness of your hands are diminished.
