How to Prep Your Wrists for a Front Rack | Ep. 89 | Movement Fix Monday
This week I want to show you a way you can prep your wrists for a front rack or for something like a push up or handstand push up.
This will being a new mini series on 'how to prep your ___ for ____".
In all of those movements, you need wrist extension for proper execution.
As we have been looking at in the past several weeks, there is a series of steps I like when prepping joints or areas of the body for exercise.
For the wrists, I will do the following (as shown in the video)
- Soft tissue prep using lacrosse ball (20-30 seconds)
- Active open chain wrist extension (5-10 reps)
- Active closed chain wrist extension (5-10 reps)
- Application and loading either in a push up or a front rack with a barbell (5-10 reps)
Rep schemes are based on feel, but a recommendation is listed in parentheses above.

I hope you find this helpful for what you do.
