There are a number of ways to help strengthen your wrists and grip strength, as I've discussed in a previous post, but this is about alignment while in your poses. It's equally important to be mindful about getting into and out of your poses safely.
Your wrists may behave a little differently to the norm, for various reasons, so please discuss any queries you have with me face-to-face so we can see exactly how your body works, but as a rough guide, here are my top tips for general corrections that I often advise:
1. Downward Facing Dog/Handstands (for yoga and pole dance)
Ensure your palms are pushing down to the floor.
Spread your fingers and thumbs wide.
Push evenly throughout all knuckles and fingertips.
Have your middle fingers pointing roughly forward not towards or away from each other.
2. Split/Full Bracket/Jamilla grip (pole dance grip)
Put one or two fingers of your bottom hand down the pole to align your wrist.
3. Baseball/Half Bracket grip (pole dance grip)
Ensure your wrists are aligned, which means that your hand is not placed at an angle up or down from your wrist.
Please try and keep yourself as safe as possible so that you can continue improving your health and wellness without injuries getting in the way.
