How to Stretch your Shoulder
So you finally got yourself doing those crazy planks. You think everything is great, but your wrists are feeling the pain and burn instead of your muscles.

No curved slightly lifted area this puts extra stress on your wrists, the more surface contact of your hand on the ground the better.
