Standing Wrest Stretch

Standing Wrist Stretch

Racing cars at 100 mph and throwing a baseball at 100 mph can lead to injury, but who knew typing 100 words per minute can as well? Forearm tightness, and worse: carpal tunnel syndrome, can be caused by repetitive wrist motions without proper stretching or breaks. Add this stretch into your routine at work and school to give your wrists a break.

Instructions:

Stand upright with your right arm extended to the front of you with your palm to the ceiling. Use your left hand to gently grab your right hand fingers (no thumb) and slowly pull down. You should feel a stretch in the front of your right wrist. Hold at the point of mild discomfort for 30 seconds. Relax and repeat for a total of 2 times for each wrist.
