Carpal tunnel is essentially irritation of the tendons going from your wrist into your hands from bad typing posture. Primary cause being a bend in the wrist for long periods of time, but the whole chain starts in the neck and shoulders. Those specific exercises won't really help prevent it, but ones that involve a greater range of movement through the wrists like the wrist curls I mentioned will. Doesn't matter how fit you are anyone can get carpal tunnel with long sessions of straining wrist positions. Best to adopt the best posture possible before it happens rather than having to rehab the injury after it happens.
