I am fairly new to lifting, and I am experiencing some wrist pain. When I catch the bar while doing a clean it causes some wrist irritation. This is only when I allow my wrist to flex towards the body which seems to be standard practice in most of the illustrations for the clean and jerk. Is this normal?
It is not a serious pain, and it only bothers me during the lift. Will repetition strengthen my wrist and improve flexibility to the point that it is no longer an issue? Or, am I going to give myself a dumb repetitive stress injury. I don't want to screw up my wrists because no wrists equals no lifting.
