Muscles stretched: wrists, forearms
How to: I used this stretch a lot in my warm up when I taught gymnastics. Begin by sitting or kneeling on the ground. Place your palms on the ground with fingers facing towards you elbows straight. This may be just enough of a stretch for you but if not lean slightly forward. You should feel the stretch in your wrists and forearms. Next turn the wrists around with palms on the ground now with the fingers facing away from your body. This way should feel less intense than the first way. Finally, flip your wrists over so the tops on your hands are on the ground with palms up, fingers facing your body. Don’t apply too much pressure when in this position, but just enough to give a little stretch.
How long: Hold this stretch for 10-15 seconds in each position. Repeat this stretch for 3 rounds.
