Clench and relax your fists

How to contract and relax your muscles

Choose an area of your body. It could be your thigh or your calf. A great one to try is making a fist.

  1. Gently contract the area of muscle.
  2. As long as you feel comfortable, you can gradually increase the force for a count of 3.
  3. Then gradually reduce the force and slowly relax for a count of 6-10.
