Hand & Finger Tendon Strains: Tendon Glides

When it comes to particular sports like rock climbing or other activities dependent on finger tendon strength, It’s particularly important to restore their maximal gliding capability. This tendon gliding mobility exercise does just that! Begin by extending the hand and fingers as much as possible. Then bring the fingers into a closed hook position by crimping the fingers down (keeping the knuckles aligned with the wrist). Then make a closed fist by rolling the fingers down. And then finally move into a flat fist with the fingers reaching down. Perform the movement in a slow and rhythmic sequence by moving through a full range of motion and keeping the wrist in neutral. Do this for 3 sets of 10 repetitions 3 times per day is excellent for rock climbers, volleyball players and any other activities that require intense finger strength and mobility.
