Wrist flexor stretch – Tight forearms? Featured Image

Studies have shown that effective stretching reduces muscle soreness.

And yet, the majority tends to do none at all or they race through it so fast at the end of a workout that the ‘stretching’ is a waste of time.

Considering the vast majority of people do not stretch as much as they need to, an overlooked area are the forearm muscles: flexor carpi radialis and flexor carpi ulnaris in particular.

This area is responsible for technique, grip strength and endurance when lifting, the wrist flexor stretch I show here could be (not always) a great stretch for you to integrate into your routine.

I personally do it 3 times a week on average due to all my chin ups and deadlift variations. And it works wonders!
