This is going to sound odd, but right now the weakest part of my squat is my hand… specifically my right hand, near the wrist.
For the last week or so, when I get the bar loaded on my back I feel a twinge in my hand as the bar pushes back on it. It feels tight just near the wrist and the pain is kind of sharp.
I don’t recall doing anything that would have caused this, so I’m hoping it’s going to go away by itself, but what do you guys think?
I’ve tried altering my grip width but that doesn’t seem to make any difference.
I also felt a slight twinge when I benched the other day too, so I guess it’s getting slightly worse.
Attached is an illustration for clarity.
