Starting On the outside of your forearm you have a group of extensor muscles that help extend your hands outward as well as side to side and they’re also highly involved in moving your fingers in all different directions. As we circle around to the inside of the forearm, we find the muscles responsible for flexion of the wrist and fingers which primarily help you curl your hands and fingers inward. Going a little deeper we find our pronator and supinator muscles responsible for rotating and turning the hand in and out.
