Type:

Stretch

Equipment:

N/A

This stretch targets the forearm muscles, including the wrist flexors and extensors, which are responsible for wrist and hand movements.

Proper form:

  1. Stand or sit up straight with your shoulders relaxed and your arms extended in front of your body.
  2. Bring one arm across your chest, keeping it straight and parallel to the ground.
  3. Use your other hand to gently pull the stretching arm toward your body, feeling a stretch in your forearm.
  4. Hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds and then release.
  5. Repeat on the other side.

How to reduce the difficulty: If you find this stretch too difficult, try holding the stretching arm with your other hand closer to your elbow instead of your wrist. You can also try reducing the amount of pulling force to make the stretch less intense.

How to increase difficulty: To increase the difficulty of this stretch, try using a resistance band or towel to apply more force to the stretching arm.

Reps: Beginner: 2 sets of 15-30 seconds on each arm Intermediate: 3 sets of 20-30 seconds on each arm Advanced: 4 sets of 30 seconds on each arm

Estimated time for exercise: 2-5 minutes
