Who ever things about wrist mobility? Outside of front squat days, our wrists don’t get as much attention as they deserve. But it’s so important to warm up and stretch your wrists and hands before things like handstands and weightlifting.
Now that I’m working on some serious compression in my wrist, here’s what I’ve been doing:
- Palm facing out, gently place one hand over the other to open your hand and stretch the inside of your wrists.
- Placing one hand around your opposite wrist, keep your wrist completely stable as you work to create circles with your hand (not just moving your fingers!). For more stability, you can do this on the floor in a hands and knees position, as well.
- Palm facing you, press one hand into the other to stretch the outside of your wrists/forearm.
- Place one hand between your shoulders, using your opposite hand to gently press down at the elbow for a tricep stretch. The tricep muscles feed into the muscles down towards your wrist so it can help to address tightness here too.
