FIX YOUR TIGHT FOREARMS
Wrist mobility is an often overlooked but very important thing to have. And many of you are going to find that you are restricted here.
The wrist flexors are responsible for not only flexion of the wrist and fingers, but grip as well.
If you lack wrist mobility, you may find the following things difficult...
Getting into a front rack position
Long times typing at a keyboard
Back squatting, especially low bar
If you spend any amount of time picking up heavy things and putting them down, you need to show your wrists and forearms some TLC. Same goes for if you work manual labor, you type at a computer, or you are a therapist doing bodywork all day.
Run through this simple test right now. Is your mobility ideal, pretty good like @quaddoc's, or do you need to put in some work like @jam5series. Comment below and then get to work on fixing it!
