      From Supple Leopard to WOD now to TRS, I’m thoroughly locked into focusing on mobility along with regular strength and stamina training. At 58yrs old, I have a condition called Dupuytren’s. It’s the extreme tightening of the fascia in the palm. It affects people of Nordic origin usually after 50. It deforms the hand and makes gripping difficult. It prevents a flat palm on any surface and pulls the ring and index finger off center. I’m glad guitar playing or rock climbing is not my profession. I do self massage, use Yin Balls, and take high potency Serapeptease to help soften the fibers. All with modest results. A mobility ‘systems’ approach via TRS would be quite useful. My restriction prevents handstands, and makes other exercises difficult. A TRS take on opening up the palm?

      Working up and down stream of the palm are things to address as well.
      Here are a couple doses to start with.

      Another option is using a Leopard Claw on your forearms, palms, and fingers. My nephew has tight hands and he loves when I use the Leopard Claw on them. Keeping things so he can access the best possible positions available to him.
