Help for your hands
A few simple exercises can preserve the strength and flexibility of your hands and wrists. There’s a reason that “having a good grip on the situation” is used as a metaphor for mastery. In physiological testing, grip strength is one of the indicators of health and vitality. Yet, although we may exercise to strengthen our cores and limbs, most of us don’t make an effort to strengthen our forearms and our hands.
