TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - In order to easily hold and lift items, strong and flexible fingers are needed. For this reason, training your fingers is very important.
Here are some habits that can train your fingers to stay strong and flexible.
1. Lifting the fingers
Place your right hand on the table. Then, lift your thumb and hold the position for 5 seconds. Continue to the index finger until the little finger alternately. Repeat up to 5 times on each finger. Do the same for the left hand.
2. Swinging the palm
First, prepare a small towel that has been rolled. Place it on the table and place the right upper arm on the towel. Let the right palm hang on the side of the table. Gently lift your palm up and push it down. Repeat 10 times and do the same for the left hand.
3. Touching the thumb
Place your right hand in front of your body with your fingers facing up. Position the tip of the thumb touching the tip of the other fingers alternately like forming the letter O. Hold this position for 30 seconds on each finger. Repeat 4 times on each finger and do the same for the left hand.
Start by clenching your right hand gently. The position of the thumb crosses outside the other fingers. Hold for 30 seconds. Open the clench and stretch your fingers so that they feel like they are pulled, not pain. Repeat 4 times and do the same for the left hand.
5. Stretch your fingers
Position the right palm in front of the body. Bend your fingers until the fingertips touch the base of the finger as if forming a claw. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat 4 times and do the same for the left hand.
6. Open and close the thumb
Start by draping the rubber band on the palm of your right hand. Slowly push the thumb as far away from the palm as possible. Hold for 30 seconds and return to its original position. Repeat until 5 times and do the same for the left hand.
