Target Area

Sides, Forearms, Fingers

Latissimus dorsi, biceps brachii, forearm flexors

Getting Into Position

From a standing or seated position, place the fingers and hand of one side onto the palm of your other hand.

Flexibility Training

Eccentric Stretch

Begin in position one and activate the inside of your arms by naturally resisting and generating tension while moving into position two.

Start with your wrist and fingers curled in toward your forearm. Resist by pulling your hand and fingers toward your forearm as your other hand overcomes this force to bring your fingers and hand in the opposite direction to stretch out your forearm muscles.

Isometric Stretch

Continue to activate the inside of your arms while remaining in position two.

Strength Training

Concentric Strength

Begin in position two and activate the inside of your arms by contracting the target muscles as you move into position one.

Start with your wrist and fingers pulled back. Push your fingers into your other hand as you slow down that movement to strengthen your forearm muscles.

Isometric Strength

Continue to activate the inside of your arms while remaining in position one.
