If you spend a lot of time doing things with your hands, like using a computer or smartphone, knitting, or cycling, you will love today’s exercise.
When you use your hands a lot, it’s important to balance the upper-body stress and tension you create with release work.
The forearms are one of the most overlooked areas for release and, when stretched properly, they are a big source of relief for your hands and wrists.
In fact, almost everyone is shocked when they experience just how tight their forearms are as they first try this stretch.
I’ve also noticed that those who really need this stretch tend to avoid it because it’s so uncomfortable at first.
But, when the forearms get tight, it can contribute to carpel tunnel syndrome, limited hand mobility and even shoulder and neck pain.
If you live in the modern world, it’s very likely you will really benefit from doing this stretch at least two to three times per week. If you have really tight forearms, you’ll want to try it every day.
Try it out and see if you notice a change!
Remember, no question is too small…
