I am at the point in weight progression where my wrists can longer bare the strain. I am currently doing 205 for 6 reps, and I am either barely making it through the sets or immediately afterwards cannot do a set of lateral raises with 20 lb. dumbbells because of the pain(currently implementing a heavy movement and then lighter isolation movement superset, somewhat akin to OVT). Prior to this point I had made it a point to explode with my legs as little as necessary to move the weight, putting the emphasis on delts, tris, chest and then fiercely opposing the weight as a super maximal negative. On the final set today I did a set emphasising more on the explosive portion of the lift and with a 1 second decent. These were obviously alot easier on the wrists; set duration was about half of my regular sets. So multiple questions then:
1. How exactly do the majority of you perform your pushpress; less weight emphasising on the pressing portion and longer duration negative, or maximal weight with maximal explosion and less emphasis on the negative.
2. Anyway to lessen the strain on the wrists? Hand positioning, wrist wraps, strengthening the wrists.
Thank you for any information in advance.
