I've seen ads on the internet for devices to train your fingers. But I wouldn't suggest them as regularly playing the guitar will automatically train the muscles that need training for free

It's fun, it trains the muscles, AND it reduces the chance you'll get prostate cancer. So start wanking!

I'm really confused as to what the hell you guys are doing to your members that's causing your arms and hands to grow muscle mass by jacking off.

train your fingers to move!!
i know it may sound stupid but if you move your fingers in different patterns regularly throughout the day then it will get them used to moving
