Wrist Extensor Eccentrics

An eccentric contraction means that the muscle is contracting, but lengthening during the contraction. Keep your forearm supported on a table. Use both hands to lift your wrist into the "start position", and then slowly lower your wrist into the "end position". From the "end position" use both hands to lift the weight back to the "start position". Repeat one time to fatigue. Repeat 2-3 times per week. When performed correctly, this exercise will cause muscle soreness in your wrist extensors. You should not start performing this exercise if you have chronic tennis elbow.
