Standing Wrist/Biceps Stretch Exercise

Standing Wrist/Biceps Stretch

Starting Position Stand tall or sit upright (not pictured). Extend left arm in front of you, palm facing outward and fingertips pointing downward.

Action Use your right hand to apply light pressure to the hand, as if pulling your fingertips towards your elbow. Keep the shoulders relaxed away from the ears.

Breathe deeply and hold for 10-30 seconds. Repeat on opposite side.

Special Instructions Stretch to the point of "mild discomfort," not to the point of pain. Straighten but do not lock elbow.

Muscles Stretched: Wrist, forearm, biceps
