Hand and Wrist Exercises
Wrist Rolls: Stretch your arms forward and rotate wrists in one direction and then the other. Repeat ten times.
Wrist Lifts: Place your forearm on a table, palm up, and wrist and hand hanging over the edge (first position). Hold a light weight (or can of soup) in your hand, and curl your wrist slowly up toward your arm (second position), and then slowly down. Repeat ten times.
Wrist Twists: Again, with your forearm on a flat surface, palm up, wrist and hand hanging over the edge (first position), hold one end of the weight or can and turn your hand slowly until your palm faces down (second position); then rotate back. Repeat ten times.
