    Very useful exercises! I am in my 3rd Trimester and these hand exercises have helped reduce swelling in my hands. Thank you

    Hallo! Thank you for sharing these nice exercises with your nice comments. How heavy should a bean bag be?

    • Alisa Wyatt

      Hi louizaleo!
      The standard weight of a beanbag is 6 pounds. I find that too heavy for some folks so we made one with an open top so we can put hand weights inside to change the weight.

    My girlfriend and her coworkers are feeling carpal tunnel stress from typing all day. I’ll see if she starts doing this – if it helps her and her coworkers.
