Wrist Strengthening – Basic Exercises
Squeeze Tennis Ball
The following intermediate wrist strengthening exercises should generally be performed 1 - 3 times per week provided they do not cause or increase pain. Ideally they should not be performed on consecutive days, to allow muscle recovery. As your wrist strength improves, the exercises can be progressed by gradually increasing the repetitions, number of sets or resistance, provided they do not cause or increase pain.
Wrist Flexion vs. Resistance Band
Begin this wrist strengthening exercise with a resistance band around your fingers, your palm facing up as demonstrated (figure 2). Your elbow should be at your side and bent to 90 degrees, your forearm supported by your other hand. Slowly curl your wrist and fingers up against the resistance band tightening your hand and forearm muscles . Perform 3 sets of 10 repetitions as far as possible and comfortable without pain.
