E1 | Eccentric Wrist Extension (band)

Eccentric strengthening exercises involve the lengthening of a muscle under load. Research shows they are the best type of exercises to do for tendinopathy injuries such as tennis elbow. This exercise puts the common extensor tendon of the forearm under eccentric load providing a consistent resistance, then unloads during the recoil / concentric phase.
