Hand Exercises for Gamers


Hello there, if you are a gamer or you are
sitting on a pc or playing on the gamepad all day, you should do my finger hand routine
that i’m going to show you right now. You will benefit from it with stronger fingers
and it will prevent injuries and long term tendonitis. Let’s go. You start this routine by just shaking up
your fingers. This feels especially good if you’ve been
sitting and – you know – clicking with the mouse all day. Do this for 10 to 20 seconds. Just join me on this one. This is a follow-along video. Okay. Afterwards, make fists and open your fingers
explosively. Come on, keep it up. And really focus on making a fist. So not like this, but really press into the
fist before you open explosively. Okay, next exercise: make your hands straight
like this and close them in two steps. Step one. Step two. And then open explosively without spreading
your fingers. And if you have weak hands this will already
give you a good pump in your forearms – and a burn. But that’s okay. You will get stronger over time. Just keep it up. Okay, next exercise: spread your fingers and
then just make a fist with the tips. Keep it up. Don’t slow down, even if it burns. You will get stronger with time. Almost finished. Okay, and now shake your hands again. And if you have weak hands – like i said – you
should feel a good burn in your forearms. But that’s okay. As i said earlier, this prevents injuries
and you will be able to game longer or work on the computer longer and this prevents all
kinds of long term injuries that you can get. Okay? So next exercise: make your hands like this
and now you extend the index finger and now you switch the fingers. Don’t take this literally please. And then you go to these two. Your little pinky finger presses the third
finger up. This again. And this again. This is called the walking extensors. This is really hard. If, in the beginning, this doesn’t work, just
do your best, okay? Just do this as best as you can and really
focus on the fingers here. This is good for finger flexibility. This is good for your agility in the fingers
and also good for the different muscles. And if you can do this quickly, do this quickly. Just do your speed. Okay! Last exercise we’re going to make a fist. Hold this and then after five to ten seconds
spread. Hold this. And after five to ten seconds again make a
fist. And hold the tension here. And repeat. And again make a fist. One last time. And spread for the last time. Okay! Now for the last exercise – it’s a stretching
exercise. Grab your fingers, extend your arms, and just
stretch those buggers. This should feel really good right now. And as i said earlier you can do this routine
every one or two hours that you game, or sit on the computer. If that’s too much for you, do it one time
at the end of your day. You will benefit from it, even if you only
do it once after you’ve played on the computer for the whole day – or worked on the computer
for the whole day. Okay? So please do it! You will benefit from it. And the other arm aswell. Almost done here. This should feel good. And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed following my routine.
