Forearm stretches are important for the mobility of your wrist and strengthens the muscles. They can also ease complaints of tendon inflammations of the inner elbow due to an inner tennis elbow.
Forearm stretches can be exercised in different positions. Best would be to use the gravity of the own body weight pressing the stretched arms against an insurmountable resistance. We could get in tabletop position with the knees and arms resting on the floor. The arms rotate towards the outside to have our fingertips point towards our legs. Here, you can feel the stretch tension in your forearms. Intensify the stretching by moving your body towards the back.
In a standing position you could also use a table, chair, or similar to rest your forearm for the stretch. Or bring your arms straight forward stretching against a wall. Another variation would be using the other arm holding on to the hand of the stretched arm. This version can be intensified by further bending the wrist.
There are various types the stretching can be exercised. Please read types of stretching to learn about the different ways to stretch if required.
