Gaining flexibility, strength and resilience in the wrists is fundamental to sustaining a holistic movement practice, and can help with restoring mobility issues in the arms. In this article, I will share with you two effective wrist stretches.
There are two muscular compartments in the forearm: the anterior and posterior compartments; these 2 Basic Wrist Stretches target both:
I introduce these two stretches to all of my clients. They are ideal as a starting point in building strong, resilient and flexible wrists.
These two stretches have helped my clients with rehabbing elbow tendon inflammation (lateral and medial epicondylitis) and other movement issues in the arm. Although these two stretches are very accessible for some folks, others will have to work up to these gradually with other preliminary exercises. Take care and listen to your body; if these stretches are too intense, you can learn more about wrist strength and conditioning at one of our workshops, 6-week classes, or personal training packages.
I hope this article helps by giving you a few more tools for supporting your life-long mobility and ease-of-movement.
Take care and keep moving,
