Our wrists are a complex joint compiling of bone, ligaments, connective tissue, muscles and nerves. The wrist has multiple ranges of movement. (flexion, extension, adduction and abduction) Compare all these movements to, for example, the knee joint, which only has flexion and extension. Our wrists are also the passage between the forearm and the hand.
Because of all these factors, the health of your wrist is VERY important for strength in your grip.
Think of all the excercizes we do that require proper grip strenght: Pull-ups, Dead Lifts, Bicep Curls, Bench Press, Kettle Bell Swings (the list goes on)
When the grip isn't strong enough while we're lifting, we'll tend to over compensate in other parts of our bodies which in turn will cause a ripple affect for injury in our other joints, muscles, nerves and ligaments.
It's very easy to forget and over look the health of our wrists. Here at Landform Fitness we don't over look anything. We treat every part of the body with equal respect. Because of that, we strive to give our clients the best and proper knowledge of form and movement for every part of the body.
We hope this video will helps you with some wrist mobility.
