Strengthen your wrists right at your computer

Sitting at your computer? Then you know all about stiff wrists and sore forearms. You’ll feel better after doing these simple moves

1 of 2

You can do this sitting or standing. Straighten your right arm in front of your body, fingers pointed toward the floor and palm facing forward. Use your left hand to pull gently on your right hand so your fingers move toward your body. Hold for 10 seconds.

Turn your hand so that your palm faces your body. Then use your left hand to pull slightly on the back of your right hand. Hold for 10 seconds. Keep your upper arm still and rotate at your wrist so that your hand moves clockwise, then counter-clockwise. Do 10 rotations in each direction. Repeat all three exercises on the other arm.
