Forearm Stretch

Forearm Stretch

AREAS INVOLVED: Forearm extensors and flexors

Stand upright with your left arm extended.

With your left arm facing down (pronated), grasp your left fingers with your right hand.

Gently pull your hand down until mild tension is felt on the top of the forearm (Figure 1). Hold for ten seconds, then pull slightly harder until more tension is felt. Hold for ten more seconds, then relax.

Repeat the sequence with your palm facing up (supinated) (Figure 2). The stretch should be felt on the inside of your forearm.

Repeat sequence with your right arm.
