No matter what your art or craft, it is always a good idea to take care of your hands. I bet you didn’t know that actually meant you need to regularly exercise them, too.
I found a really good video on YouTube that shows a technique for stretching. I have always used a bit of a shorter version of this, but I may start taking the time to do a longer, fuller version of the stretches.
Just remember, though. Like with any type of exercise or stretching, go easy on yourself! It is unbelievably easy to damage the tendons and ligaments of your hands and fingers. NEVER go further than your pain threshold. Pain means you are doing something wrong. Do not use your entire weight or strength to stretch any part of your body.
Now, the forward is done, here is the video! (No, this is not me)
