The wrist can be a major limitation for a great front rack position. In this video, Team Power Monkey Physical Therapist Dan Pope will walk you through a wrist assessment: if your elbow drops below the crease of the wrist, you've passed. If not, you've got some work to do to improve your wrist mobility.
If you've found stiffness in your wrists, the exercise below will help.
Try this simple exercise for wrist mobility:
- Perform this stretch 5x/week for 10-15 reps.
- Check your mobility after 4 weeks to assess your progress.
- Repeat the exercise as needed.
