Wrist Flexion

This wrist flexion exercise can be performed with a dumbbell as shown, or with a resistance band. It is great for strengthening the wrist flexor muscles of the forearm after wrist and elbow injuries.

Teaching Points:

  • To strengthen the muscles which flex the wrist, the athlete sits with the forearm supported and palm facing upwards.
  • Starting with the wrist bend downwards and a small weight in the hand, the athlete pulls the wrist upwards, keeping the forearm flat on the table.
  • They then slowly reverse this movement.
