    I use them faithfully everyday. I keep a set in the car, a set at my office desk, and a set at my house. The improvement in my grip strength is very obvious, and it has helped get my hands around to the ball in my swing quicker. I haven't yet noticed much of a change with regard to pitching, however, I am learning new things everyday when it comes to throwing.

    In addition to the wrist roller and the hand squeezers, you can also do reverse curls, dumbell wrist exercises (3 directions--flexion and extension), and make yourself a rice bucket. Bury a small item in a 5 gallon bucket of rice and dig around in the bucket trying to find it....sounds weird, but works great!

    Also, I hope when you say elbow area, that you mean the muscles right below the elbow, toward the hand???

Roll your wrists to get it up. once it is all the way up, do the same again to let it all the way down.
    Yeah, this is what I did in high school. You can really feel your forearms burn when you do this.
