Im unsure where to post this but this section seemed appropriate.
Im an intermediate lifter(bench 325, ohp 205, squat 410, deadlift 405)
Ive lifted most of my adult life off and on but two years ago i got more serious about it and started making it a priority. So for the last year Ive been training mainly for strength.
I started with linear progression using sets like 5x10 and through the year i progressed to 5/3/1. With lifting closer to my 1rm on a more regular basis, ive started getting wrist pain on bench press on the right only.
It feels like the wrist bones aren’t locked in place and when i put bar pressure on it they mash down. The pain is pretty sharp and causes me to readjust under the bar. I have no idea what im doing wrong but ive been contemplating cycling back to 5x10 and sropping the 1rm percentage down to 65-75% and taking a “break” for a few months
Ive experimented with adjusting my grip but it hasn’t helped
Overhead press doesn’t seem to effect it in the same way.
