Online Entrepreneur Fitness: All About Your Forearms
Recently this blog has featured a series of super easy stretches for people sitting at a desk all day.
Today the focus is all about your forearms.
Would you like your arms to be flexible like a monkey?
It’s really important to stretch the forearms when typing or writing for a long period of time. Without stretching or having a break from the computer it can cause the muscles to tighten which may lead to overuse injuries.
The following stretches are for the flexors and extensors. Flexors are the group of muscles on the underside of the forearm and the extensors are the group of muscles on top of the forearm.
Flexors can be stretched by straightening the arm and gently pulling back on the fingers.
Extensors can be stretched by straightening the arm and gently pulling the fingers back towards the wrist.
Could these stretches be any simpler? Give them a try.
If you’d like more short, smart stretches try the hamstring stretch and rhomboid stretch (shoulders).
