Hand Stretches PDF

Keeping my hands and wrists pain-free can be hard since I work on a computer all day and crochet and craft at night. I started looking for exercises or stretches to keep my hands from cramping up and feeling stiff. Berroco has a great Handeze warm up, which I made into a printable two-up PDF.

Pretty interesting and informative site with free videos demonstrating basic hand exercises to increase strength and flexibility of your hands and fingers.

The biggest challenge I face is to take breaks and rest my hands. When I’m on a roll with a crochet project, though, it’s hard to put it down. It’s a good lesson in moderation – one I always need to be reminded of.

  1. Great idea! My hands get tired and sore after painting or doing jewelry! These will be great excercises to warm up, but then also relieve stiffness the next day!
