Wrist Exercises VIDEO: Improve Hitters’ Flexibility & Strength In 2-Weeks
This wrist exercises post is for Coach David Michael Enciso (DME). He mentioned having a couple girls that had stiff wrists, and was wondering about stretches.
To those that don’t know, I’ve been doing Gymnastics body-weight strength training through GymnasticBodies.com over the past four months. That link will give you $25 OFF their Fundamentals course.
I don’t get commission on that, I just think what Coach Sommers has put together is excellent training for baseball and softball players! By the way, Coach Sommers was the former US Olympic men’s Gymnastics coach. I’ve also recommended his program to quite a few of my hitting students and parents online and off.
I personally finished the Fundamentals 4-week course, and moved onto the Handstand course, which I’ve been working on for the past 2-3 months months.
However, I’d recommend my players completing the Fundamentals course first, then moving onto the Foundation courses, before moving onto Handstand.
In the video above, I show you all the wrist stretches and strengtheners that I do on a daily and bi-weekly basis for my Handstand training.
The wrist stretches alone got rid of a painful pinch on the backside of my right wrist (my throwing hand), that I’ve had for the last 5 years, at the bottom of the push-up position…the pinch was gone in 2-weeks!
Do the THREE stretches EVERYDAY as prescribed in the video,
Do the FOUR exercises 3-sets X 5-repetitions each wrist, 2-3 times per week.
PLEASE keep me updated on any changes you find in your hitters, from these wrist stretches and exercises.
Another training device you should look into is Rotex Motion. Click Here for an experiment I did on that.
Make sure we’re swinging smarter by moving better 😉
