Strengthen the elbow, forearm and hands.
This exercise is intended to strengthen the muscles responsible for extending the wrist. The support and compression provided by the Bauerfeind EpiTrain Elbow Brace can help manage pain and swelling during and after injury recovery.
- To complete this exercise you will need an elastic band and a plastic or wooden dowel. Wrap a small portion of the band around the dowel. Step on the free end of the band to secure it in place.
- With the dowel held out in front of the body alternately roll the dowel in each hand. Each roll of the dowel increases the tension in the band and the resistance applied to your movements.
- Once you have completed the upward repetitions, roll the band back out.
- Perform 15 upward and 15 downward repetitions. Repeat as your ability allows.
