My weakest body part are my wrists. Its the weak link between my hands and my arms and subsequently my core. In fact my right wrist hurts as soon as I try to bench (I work through this pain). When I buy a watch I have to punch new holes in it because of how tiny my pathetic wrists are.
Is it just a matter of bulking up and lifting heavy or are the wrists just kind of the way they are? I’ve been training for about 6 months now and have gone from a skinny guy to fairly muscular but my wrists have remained tiny.
I was sparring with a student of mine and he punched my wrist on accident and it stung terribly. Meanwhile after our sparring match he commented that I had a 6 pack - the first person to ever do so. Its horrible that I’ve made so much progress and yet my wrists are still so tiny.
I do deadlifts and pull-ups and whenever I touch a plate I pinch grip it and my forearms have definitely gotten bigger but not my wrists.
Maybe its my own insecurities about having such small wrists but I think it also is a bit demasculating - I mean shit I can’t even wear a decent men’s watch.
