We have come to the 4th finger.
This is the finger that will need the most exercise because it is the weakest of the 4 generally.
Train the 4th finger and try to use as little as possible tension when you stretch it to it’s position.
It may seem that you would never reach it’s position in the beginning, that is perfectly normal.
After a bit of training you will notice the difference, just like if you would start with running, you should not be frustrated if you can’t run the marathon the first day.
Mind you that positioning 4th finger effortlessly will take a lot less time than achieving the full marathon 😉
