I’m looking for any advice on building wrist strength to avoid future injuries to my wrists and to keep moving up on lifts. My wrists are my weak point when pressing and doing overhead squats. I typically push through the pain but it has it’s limits.
Here’s the quick rundown… I have a wrist injury that’s been off and on since I hyper-extended it snowboarding in high school. It’s also taken a lot of abuse and shock from riding atv’s and dirtbikes. The pain would always come on after aggravating it through climbing, riding, doing pushups, etc… but then it would go away after a week or two. This has been going on for at least 7 years now. Problem is, it’s been in pretty constant pain since November.
Everything I’ve come across is more concerned about adding size to the forearms which I could care less about. I’m looking for strength specific advice for wrists. I’ve recently started doing wrist curls with a barbell but it just seems to pump out my forearms.
Also, I wear wrist straps. I know that would be one of the first recommendations if I didn’t put it in here first.
