Hi Mark,

But I'd stay away from anything that has as its main focus to develop specific muscle groups. Like using weights to build biceps.
Agreed. The type of weighted exercises I am referring to are full-body exercises, like a kettlebell snatch, c&j, or turkish get-up, for example. I have always tried to stay away from the isolation exercises that focus on specific muscle groups.

And while I wouldn't recommend any of the exercises that Chris posted, I might alter the wrist stretch one to fit what you're working on. Instead of focusing on "stretching" the joints, work on your intent going outwards such that when you twist the joint, you encounter that outward intent along with your whole body being at that joint. ack. Hard to describe.
I remember what you are talking about here. You explained it to me at the seminar after I failed to put a wrist lock on you!
