Tip of the Week : Rice Bucket RehabEach week we publish a number of tips and techniques via Twitter, the blog; and the newsletter. Wherever you are, there’s always a way to improve what you’re doing.
In the discussion on Recovery Work for the Hands we noted several superb recovery techniques, including the ever-popular Rice Digs. If you’ve never tried doing these, the process is incredibly simple. From the post ‘Rice Digs (for Grip-Training Warmups)‘, a brief description :
The exercise is an extremely simple one; pour some uncooked rice into a bucket and repeatedly burrow your hands into it. Make fists, rotate your wrists and generally move your hands around whilst they’re surrounded by rice. To make it more difficult, use sand or even lead shot instead of the rice. Nice and painful.NB : All other things being equal, a finer material will feel more difficult. Things like lead shot have less give, and will quickly prove challenging. Rice is a good starting point. And to make things a little clearer, have a look at the video below. Great exercise.
