Agreed. In my experience, this is the best way to build your wrist strength. Start out with some smaller weight, like five pounds, and gradually work your way up. Increase the number of repetitions each time also. But the only way for anything to really work is if you go out in the driveway and shoot pucks. If you are shooting the puck correctly over and over, along with building wrist strength- you will see some significant improvement in your wrister in no time.
