Wrist Flexion Eccentrics With Elbow Flexion With Dumbbell

Wrist Flexion Eccentrics With Elbow Flexion With Dumbbell

  • HOW: Get set-up sitting upright with a surface next to you to support your elbow and forearm. With your elbow flexed to 90˚, position your wrist in a neutral position with your palm facing up, and your hand unsupported at the edge of the surface. While maintaining your forearm position, use a dumbbell or your other hand to apply an external resistance and perform eccentric wrist flexion. Use your other hand to return to starting position. See the video for other tips and instructions.
 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles on the inside of your forearm working as well as other muscles in your forearm and hand to help with gripping the dumbbell if you’re using one. You may feel tension on the inside of your elbow as well.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Perform slowly, do not lose elbow position, do not lift your arm off the surface.
