    Default Stretching

    I've seen a few drummers do this really cool hand/wrist/arm stretch before they play where they fold their wrists in together and tuck them behind their head and pull them apart. I've also seen a guy use a drum stick as a sort of counter-lever on which to stretch out his wrists. What stretches do you guys recommend before playing? Are there videos of these things?

    I just stretch my wrists by turning them and pulling on my hands a little bit to get the blood flowing, but honestly for a good warmup just play on something soft for a minute.. Forces you to use all the muscles and get some blood flowing.

    I might start stretching my calves before/after I start playing. I've pulled them like 20x since I got into metal drumming.
