Grip strength is important to health and fitness and if the tissues in your forearms are knotted up, then it will impact the ability of those muscles to fire properly. I have been doing Ido Portal’s 7 Minute Hang Challenge and it’s been kicking my butt. Without these Yoga Tune Up® therapy ball exercises, I would not be able to function.

I have been doing the Ido Portal 7 Minute Hang Challenge. It is a great way to strengthen the connective tissues in your shoulders, develop a stronger grip and more supple shoulders. The downside to this focused work is that my hands and forearms are getting smoked. So I have gone back into the archives to find some ways to take care of my wrists and forearms. Here are a few wrist stretches that you can do to warm up or cool down. Try to do 10 reps of each moving slowly and holding the deepest part of the stretch for 2 to 3 seconds.
Be sure to check out these great forearm exercises too.
