    1. To help improve the movement of your wrists to bend forward, place the backs of your hands together in front of your face. While keeping them together, slowly lower your elbows as far as you can without letting the backs of your hands move apart. Hold for a 3 to 5 count. Relax and raise your elbows. Repeat.

    2. To help improve the movement of your wrists to bend back, place your fingers and palms together in front of your face. While keeping them together, slowly pull your hands down as far as you can without letting your palms move apart. Hold for a 3 to 5 count. Relax and raise your hands. Repeat.

    3. Another way to help improve the movement of your wrist to bend back is to place your open hand flat on a table or counter. Keep your elbow locked as you move your upper body over your wrist and hand. Hold for a 3 to 5 count. Relax back and repeat.

    Doing figure 8 movements with your hands and wrists will help loosen tight, stiff wrists.

    This Innovation was submitted by someone who attended the first part of the July seminar.

    Slide your home-made Wrist Wand (http://amzn.to/2wC4SkT ) through a Swim Noodle (http://amzn.to/2gzt3cf ) to create a home-made cushion for better grip and comfort.

    For those unfamiliar with a Wrist Wand (http://amzn.to/2wC4SkT ), it is a straight piece of plastic about 9" long with about 3" of cushioning on each end.

    It is grasped with a double-underhand grip (palms up) and then curled up, in and over towards your chest to end with both hands upside down out in front of you without losing your grip.

    The Innovations I recommend are anything about 9" long such as a dowel, piece of PVC pipe or a cut off broom handle.

    The Innovation above provides the cushioning.
