Forearm Strengthening in Supination with a Therapy Band

Sit comfortably in an upright position on the edge of a chair. Secure one end of a therapy band around your right foot. Securely grasp the other elastic end of the therapy band in your right hand.

You're leaning forward slightly at the waist. Your weight is supported by your left hand on your left thigh. Your right forearm is placed along your right thigh, facing forward, palm down.

Begin by rotating your right forearm to the right [this is supination]. You'll feel the muscular contraction along your right forearm. Relax and return to the starting position.
