also do u guys think a glucosamine supplement is a good idea??
i have no other joint pain and i am 16 yrs old
I doubt that glucosamine is what you need.
Check which exercises irritate your wrists… Are you gripping the bar on rows or pullups too wide (I can’t wrap my thumb around the bar if I do, that causes pain… I can go thumbless just fine though, even with a very wide grip)? Are you doing a wrist-curl while EZ curling?
Problems during rack pulls or deadlifts? Etc.
Are you doing upright rows with a straight bar (lots of people fuck their wrists up there, not all but a lot)?
Get to the source of the problem… And consider giving your forearms some rest.
i dont think i’m going too wide on the bar. slightly wider than shoulder width (each hand is a couple inches away from inside of the knurling)
don’t think i am wrist curling when doing the ez-curls, i will pay more attention next time i try the curls. if i were wrist curling a little bit i would imagine that the wrist curl would happen at the top portion of the curl…
never done rack pulls, but no problems doing dealifts (with either mixed or double overhand grip)
yes i am doing the rows with a straight bar, an olympic bar to be specific. i do them with a supinated grip, and sometimes when i rack the bar after doing all the reps i feel a tweak in the same area where the ez curls hurt my wrist. the weird thing is i only get the small tweak when i rack the bar, not during the actually rowing
It often happens that little tweaks are only felt after you’re done with the exercise… Start using an overhand grip or even suicide grip and straps if you need them…
And for now give the area rest… Concentrate on your legs or whatever instead for a while… Tendonitis or similar conditions don’t go away just like that if you keep irritating the area.
During curls… Ok, gotta be honest to yourself: Are you using a ton of body english and way more weight than you’re ready for? Or are you going very low in reps (4-6 or lower) on a lot of movements for multiple sets or so?
