If you followed me on social media you’d know by now that i am here to get you fit in a different way that many coaches and personal trainers do. While you will see me running and sprinting you will also see me stretching my fingers and toes, one at a time.

My belief is that the smaller habits we do daily throughout our lives make the greatest difference, whether positive or negative. It’s the details that make the whole.

So why stretching your fingers? Let me ask you this, do you type? If you do then your fingers and hands probably rest in the same position for hours, very little movement, which causes stiffness Do it at the end of the day or during the day and you will see how amazing you it feels.

When we stretch our fingers we release tension in our hands and wrists as well. But also in the forearm. Your muscles are connected to each other. If you don’t feel a muscle movement that does not mean it’s not there.

So let’s get started with the stretch.
