There has been a few discussion lately at the gym re wrist strength and flexibility. Here are is a little more info to help you out:
TIPS FOR BETTER WRIST MOBILITY - Camille St Onge
This is very basic. Wrap your fingers together and move your wrists
around in every possible direction. Hold any position that feels a
little tender/limited for a few seconds. Repeat often throughout the
Planche Push Up Position.
Get into a plank position (elbows fully extended at the top of the push
up). Turn your hands inward so your fingertips are pointing toward your
toes. Keeping a rigid torso, shift your body forward so you have an
angle from your shoulders to wrists. Hold this position for 20-30
seconds (or as long as you can bear) and repeat. If this is too intense,
drop down to your knees and complete.
Front Squat Rack Position.
If this position is bothering you as you front squat, chances are you
need to get your wrists working through the range of motion required for
a front squat. It is not your wrists holding the bar in place, it is
your shoulders but . . . you need good wrist mobility to get that heavy
bar sitting correctly on top of your shoulders. Load a bar on a desired
rack setting. Set up in a rack position, with your elbows pointing as
far forward as possible and weight sitting on your shoulders. Pick up
the bar and rotate your elbows forward, then re rack the bar. Repeat
this process until you see a change in your rack position.
Static Holds. Pull your wrist back into extension and/or flexion and hold for at least 20-30 seconds.
Wrist Walks. Place
your palms on a wall, with your arms straight and fingers pointing to
the ceiling. Keeping contact with the wall, walk your hands down the
wall. Go as far down as possible without letting your palms come off the
wall. Once you reach the point where you can’t walk your hands down any
farther, turn your hands around so your fingers are now pointing to the
floor. Walk your wrists back up the wall as far upward as possible.
Repeat as desired.

Get fit fast? Great, sign us up. Get fit in four minutes? Now we're
skeptical. But while getting results in a fraction of the time might
sound like the stuff of fitness legend, one reseacher is out to prove
his hyper-efficient Tabata protocol — which takes just four minutes of
exercise per session — is anything but a marketing scheme....... (read more)
