So i been working on the clean and jerk for some weeks now. i’ve been trying to practice my form at low weight because, as my friend paul puts it so eloquently, “no offense, but you don’t have a bit of explosiveness in you.” haha, so i’ve been practicing, but i noticed i am having a hard time getting the rack right where the bar/weight is resting on my shoulders with my wrists bent back, etc. so anyway, i’ve just taken a week off for finals. because of this, i was trying to do some body-weight exercises i found from past articles, but naturally, the first thing i started out with was a a set of push ups. unfortunately, my wrists wouldn’t bend all the way when i tried to get in the position to do push ups. it almost registered as pain until i rested on my haunches and bent my wrist back. there’s this lump that has formed on the joint of my wrist and arm… i’m thinking it’s calcium deposits. and they’ve formed on both wrists. is this common? is this a result of my [bad] form during the rack portion of the clean? i’m kinda confused and while not scared, it kinda concerns me since this sort of bone or muscle or whatever it is that formed is impeding me from being able to do a flat handed push up.
on another note, the new t-nation is FUCKING KICK ASS!@#!
