15. Prayer Stretch

This stretch begins with your hands in a – you guessed it – prayer position. Bring your hands together in front of your chest, but below the chin.

Keeping your hands palmed together and upright, lower your hands and arms along your abdomen until you feel a stretch in your forearms.


Take care to make sure the stretch isn’t painful or forced. Hold for up to 30 seconds, and repeat 2-4 times.

16. Wrist Flexor Exercise

For this exercise, you’re going to start with your hand stretched out in front of you with the palm facing upwards. Keeping your arm where it is, bend at the wrist until your fingers are pointed towards the floor.

Use your other hand to gently push your hand further back until you feel a stretch in your forearm. Hold for 15-30 seconds, and repeat 2-4 times on each side.
