Get a Grip on Your Grip Part 2 – Mobility

posted in: elbow, wrist | 0

Now that we have discussed the importance of grip training and covered some accessory work to get that handshake stronger, let’s cover some mobility techniques necessary to keep a healthy grip.

Work on the following to increase blood flow in the soft tissues and mobilize the joint capsules for improved movement and performance with your grip

  1. Palm mobilization with lacrosse ball or spoon: 2 minutes a day on each hand while at work or after training
  2. Forearm mobilization with lacrosse ball (extensors and flexors): 2 minutes a day on each arm while at work or after training
  3. Banded elbow mobilization: 20 rotations before training or on rest days
  4. Banded wrist mobilization: 20 reps before training or on rest days
  5. Pronator stretch: 30-60 seconds total with 4-5 sets of 5 seconds contract and relax before training or at any other time

Have fun with it!
