Quick Tip: Want to get more specific with your wrist and forearm stretch?

Posted by on Oct 9, 2018 in Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

Many of our clients spend a lot of time at the keyboard. And some of them have come to us struggling with discomfort in the forearms, wrists, and hands. With that in mind, we’ve shared some great stretches in the past to help you keep those lower arms healthy. We especially love two active isolated stretches that target the flexors and extensors — muscle groups that run down the forearms, and help with all sorts of wrist movement.

But in this week’s Quick Tip, Scott gets more specific. Engaging each finger separately, he shows how you can isolate distinct components of the flexors and extensors that are aligned with each finger. This will help you calibrate your stretch to different levels of tension you might feel in various parts of the hand, wrist, and forearm. Try it out and let us know what you think!

And before you watch, if you’re not familiar with Active Isolated Stretching, brush up on this wonderful technique here.
