Wrist Stretches

Description:

Maintaining good wrist health and mobility is imperative when performing movements that place weight on the hands and wrists.  For Crossfitters – wrist mobility is particularly important for gaining a deeper false grip on rings when performing the muscle up  This stretch is also helpful for those wishing to relieve forearm and wrist stress – particularly for those that have desk jobs that require you to maintain a rigid wrist position, commonly seen when using the keyboard.

 

Process:

  • begin in a kneeling position and plant both palms  on the floor
  • lean shoulders side-to-side, in a circular motion, forward and back, until you feel a stretch in the wrist and forearm area
  • play with various hand positions for a different type of stretch
