How-To Series: Wrist Extension

Our How-To Series continues with another exercise to target the muscles in your forearms. The two groups of muscles in your wrists are the extensors and flexors. You can strengthen them all with resistance exercises. The wrist extensors consist of eight muscles and work to extend your wrist and move your fingers. The wrist flexors have six muscles that function to flex your wrist, fingers and elbow. Without these vital muscle groups many movements cannot be performed. While the primary function of your wrist extensors is wrist extension, these muscles also assist with lateral movement of your wrists to the right and left.
