Quadruped Lateral Weight Shift – Wrist Extension

  • HOW: Get set up on your hands and knees with your hands and fingers rotated in facing each other. While staying strong through your shoulder blades, arms, your wrist, and your fingers, slowly shift your weight laterally so that your shoulders move over each wrist, then shift back and repeat.
  • FEEL: This will feel like an upper body exercise as well as pressure shifting from your wrists to your fingers and other parts of your hands. When you shift to your right, you should feel a stretch on the palm side of your wrist/forearm on the opposite side (the left).
  • COMPENSATION: Do your best to maintain a good upper body position as you perform the weight shifts. No need to force pain or significant discomfort in your wrist, just limit how far you shift your weight laterally side-to-side.
