5 Simple Exercises To Strengthen Fingers

1. Fist Flexes

Make a fist so that your thumb wraps around your fingers. Do not squeeze your hand into a tight fist. Keep it relaxed and comfortable. Hold it for 30 seconds then extend all of your fingers. This completes 1 rep.

2. Stress Ball Squeeze

Tightly hold a stress ball. Squeeze it as hard as you can! This type of grip will be a workout for the muscles in your fingers. But, be sure to avoid using hard ones like tennis balls. Hold for 5 seconds. To complete 1 rep, release.

Reps: 5 each hand

3. Finger Lift

Place the palm of your hand on a flat surface. Lift your fingers one by one, holding each for 5 seconds. Focus on keeping the rest of your hand perfectly flat. Once you’ve lifted all your fingers, you’ve completed 1 rep. Another variation is to lift all your fingers at once.

Reps: 5 each hand

4. Thumb Touch
