When I worked in freezers, there was a series of excersizes that we were required to do before we were allowed into the freezers, and also required to do after our shift, before clocking out for the night/day (whichever.)

Mostly bending/stretching the wrists/hands/fingers area, some involving fists, etc. They are mostly (anaerobic) exercises, where you're forcing one part of your body to work against another part. Not meant to regain strength, but range of motion and flexibility. Also, helps with repetitive motion jobs like typing and stuff like that. People doing this type of exercise are far less likely to end up with arthritic joints or carpal tunnel/tennis elbow type ailments, according to doctors.

Oh - my wife is training for Massage Therapy. Yay Me!
