If you've ever experienced wrist pain during a workout, you know it's no fun and it could even be holding you back from seeing progress if it prevents you from completing your routine! This basic, wrist-focused routine is designed to help you build strength, range of motion and flexibility in the muscles that surround and support your wrists.
All you'll need for this routine is a small ball that fits in the palm of your hand (a tennis ball is perfect), a resistance band and a set of dumbbells. (Note that the dumbbells can be any weight; we won't be lifting them. We will just be using them for a wrist alignment exercise). Try these moves before a workout or on their own up to four non-consecutive days per week.
It's important to note that not all exercises are suitable for everyone, so if you are dealing with a specific condition or injury be sure to check with your doctor or physical therapist before trying this workout. This routine is not meant to diagnose or treat any conditions or symptoms. Be sure to see a qualified specialist for expert treatment if you experience pain on a regular basis.
