E1 | Eccentric Wrist Flexion (band)


Eccentric strengthening exercises involve the lengthening of a muscle under load. In this movement the common flexor tendon of the forearm is put under eccentric load providing a consistent resistance. Ideal for recovery of Golfer's elbow and follow wrist fractures or casting.


Rest forearm of the arm you are going to exercise on a table top with hand hanging over, palm facing the upwards, holding handle of band in that hand. Hold the other end of the band in other hand, keeping it loose. Flex the wrist upwards away from the ground, then pull the band to produce tension and slowly lower your wrist back to starting position. Once you reach the bottom, relax the tension on the band and return to start position.
