Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat (optional). Today we are working on two joints that most people neglect. Not focusing enough on these two joints can lead to issues and compensations in other areas of the body. We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your wrists and ankles. The wrist portion is especially helpful for all of you that spend a lot of time typing on a keyboard everyday. I see way too many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome that could have been avoided.
We are starting off with ankle and wrist range of motion movement. The key is to try to move each of these joints through their maximal range of motion. This one is also great for working on coordination. Next we are working on an end-range stretch isometric technique for the front of your ankles. Your goal is to stretch out your ankles as much as possible and then contract them. We are finishing up with three different wrist activation and end-range stretch techniques. With the first, the key is to slowly lower the back of your hands to the ground using the muscles on the back of your wrists. With the last two, focus on maximally stretching out your wrist and then contracting your muscles, which will push your hands into the ground. If you have pain with any of the movements, don’t go as deep into the stretch. Have fun!
