Active Pronator Elbow Stretch

Pronator stretches work on increasing the flexibility of the pronator muscles in order to increase the range of supination available at the wrist / forearm.

Teaching Points:

  • To increase supination, where the palm faces upwards, the athlete uses the other hand to assist in increasing this motion.
  • With an underhand grip on the wrist, the athlete uses the fingers to pull the thumb side of the wrist downwards and pushes the other side upwards with the palm of the hand.
  • This can be held for 20-30 seconds and repeated several times.
