A great forearm stretch - Hold one arm out in front of the body with the palm down, the elbow sraight, and the shoulders relaxed. Let gravity bend your wrist down towards the floor. Now, use your other hand to increase the stretch gently. Feel the stretch over the back of the forearm? If you need a bit more stretch, gently close the fingers of the arm being stretched. Remember, stretches should never be painful!
