Lumbricals & Fingers

The most powerful and important function of the hand is flexibility of the lumbricals, “The brain of the hand.” Immediate functional flexibility creates greater grip force!

Wrist

Being the supporting platform of the  lumbricals (hands), the strength and flexibility of the wrist are key in determining how the fingers and hands will perform.

Extensors & Flexors

The kinetic chain of force, power and strength that follow through the fingers, lumbricals, and wrists, start at the extensors & flexors (forearms).
