During dips, and only during dips, the last two fingers on my right hand burn after two or three reps and just plain hurt after five to seven. I’ve tried adjusting my grip by placing my wrist differently and tried wearing gloves, but nothing helps.
The odd thing is nothing else causes it. I can bench my body weight a couple of times and never have the pain, so I don’t think it’s just the load. Lastly, I tried the assisted dip machine and even if I just put five pounds on it, I don’t usually have the pain. Now that I think about it, the assisted machine has the handles a bit further apart, maybe that’s it?
I guess my question is what do you think is causing it, and is there anythign I can do about it. Assisted dips are too easy for me now, but obviously I can’t use a dip belt if my own body weight causes my hand to hurt.
