Exercise of the day Wrist mobilisation I meet alot of weight lifters who strain their wrists whilst weight lifting. They perceive their wrists as weak, because they can't push the weight they want to. Wrist mobility (lack of) is often the cause of the wrist pain. If we can't bend our wrists back far enough then when we do an exercise like the bench press, the weight sits across the wrong part of the palm leading to wrist strain. Gymnists mobilise their wrists before every workout. Their mobility routine is excellent Directions 1. On your hands and knees place your palms down on the floor with your fingers pointing towards you (as shown) lean forward to increase the stretch. Hold for 10 secs ease off then repeat x3 2. Same as above, this time, have your fingers pointing away from you. I use this mobilisation on a weekly basis and find it helps to prevent wrist strains and tennis and golfers elbow. I'm also using it to rehab my hand post surgery.
