If you work at a computer, then you may want to consider forearm stretches to alleviate tightness or inflexibility in your lower arm.
If that’s the case, then you’ll want to use this forearm stretch regularly.
Keeping your forearms, wrists, and hands limber will decrease the likelihood of:
- joint pain, tightness,
- and stave off Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that is often associated with excessive flexion or overuse of the wrist.
One of the Best Forearm Stretches
The stretch is simple yet effective. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds twice on each arm. Here ya go:
- Extend one arm directly in front of the shoulder with the palm faced away from the body and the fingertips toward the ceiling.
- Grasp and pull the fingertips toward your shoulder with your opposite hand until you feel a full stretch in that forearm.
- Hold this position, release then slowly ease into position again. Stretch both sides equally.
