Tennis Elbow is a serious issue for a ton of folks! This is an amazing exercise to get started with. Not only does this exercise help improve your blood flow and mobility to his area, it can also do wonders to help manage any pain you may be having. The best part about it is that all you need is a release ball! Or in the worst case, you can use just your hand to get the job done. This is one powerful exercise to get things moving and shaking again.

Exercise

Start seated with your elbow fully bent and wrist fully extended. Grab your mobility tool in your opposite hand and push it into the muscles at the top of the elbow. Press the ball into the elbow and pull it TOWARDS your body. Once you have some tension on the muscles, begin to straighten your elbow and bend your wrist. The stretch should start to increase. Once you are fully straightened your elbow and bent your wrist, return to the starting position, reset, and repeat.

Time
Do this for 2 minutes throughout the day. Make sure to move the ball throughout the whole back of your forearm during this time.

Is our wrist extensor self-release or as I call it the cat’s meow because we’re going to be meowing at each other here. So to do this one, what we’re going to do is grab onto a release ball, or your hand for that matter, and relax all the muscles. You’re going to flex the elbow, relax the wrist, extend the wrist, put all this muscle here nice and slick, and nice and relaxed.

Then what we’re going to do is take this ball and press it into this area of forearm, push down and pull up toward the shoulders. So push down and pull up towards the shoulder. Once you have that tension and you’re fully relaxed, you’re going to hold that pressure and bring that arm forwards and point that hand and come down like this and come back up. Don’t hold the end. Just come through up and down and feel that stretch. You can move this up the forearm as you go.

I’ll show you that from this angle. So you’re here, you come up, everything nice and relaxed, nice and soft. Compress and come forwards, compress and come forward, just like that. So, if you have the option to use a ball or your hand, that’s what you want you to do. If you don’t, a really easy alternative is just massage it. You can just massage that forearm, get some blood flowing to it and just work that area.

So, at your desk, wherever you might be, do your cat’s meow or just massage the area. I have some steps below, and we will see you in the next video.
