      I am hoping that some of you guys out there can help me out with a problem. Over the past month or so, I am not able to use heavy weights for arm training, because both of my wrists hurts pretty badly. So bad that I cannot properly curl 30 pounds on a barbell without the pain. I resorted to doing hammer curls for the moment.

      Has anyone out there ever experienced wrist pain like this? And if so how did you deal with it? I use heavy weights to failure after warming up and my reps usually fall between 6 to 8 on most arm exercises.

      Regards,

      Neil.

        Your lucky. I have a cyst, calcium deposit, bone spur, and
        dislocated pinky from all my years of tennis , golf, football and
        lifting. The pain could be coming from wrist wraps if you've warn
        them. Also do you ever do forearms curls to strenghten your wrist.
        It could be also overtraining. Ice your wrist after you lift and
        ice it several times a day and even put on some pain cream.
        I wouldnt even be able to lift without ice.

          that I should go to a doctor to have the problem
          diagnosed. How did you find out you that you have a

          kind of specialist did you see?

            Wrist pain can be the result of all sorts of things. Going to a specialist
            can be a further risk. Dr George Sheehan's article Diseases of Excellence
            (published in a Rodale magazine in the late 1970s) chronicled the tragedies
            of half a dozen athletes seeking remediation of injuries from doctors who
            themselves did not train, hence diagnosed by the book - assuming all
            problems are severe pathologies.

            The kind of training your doing can induce a number of ligament and tendon
            problems that show up as wrist pain - problems that may well originate in
            one or other of the very small forearm muscles; sometimes they show up as
            "elbow" problems. For the smaller biceps and triceps, I'd advocate a range
            of 8-10, even 10-12 reps. If you can do hammer curls, that suggests injury
            to one of the forearm rotators with impringement on the wrist. Your wrist,
            like your elbow, can be adjusted along with relieving the bound up condition
            of the muscles in question.

            Having no idea where you live, I'd go to the Yellow Pages under
            Chiropractors looking for someone whose listing declares they practice
            Active Release Therapy (ART). Or go to the ART site in Colorado, asking for
            a referal, should there be one, to a certified practitioner in your area.
            ART brings about rapid results, and carries the endorsement of the American
            Triathletes Association. I've been amazed what a fifteen minute session can
            do. I've had wrist pains resulting from tiny muscles in the arm pit being
            stressed and rotating the bone of the upper arm slightly out of place - also
            causing shoulder impringement. ART takes chiropracty a step forward,
            particularly with its tendency toward reductionism to the spine being the
            cause of problems - since these days the nervous system is deemed
            coextensive with the whole body.

            The other option I'd try is Chinese medicine. They've done something akin to
            chiropracty for several thousand years, but always in concert with muscle
            work. It's also noteworthy that in surgical procedures they use a fraction
            of the anasthetics due to use of accupuncture - resulting in faster healing
            without the debilitating side effects of anasthetics. I once had a case of
            Morton's neuroma, a growth associated with nerves in the foot. Orthodox
            medicine said I needed surgery, and that would keep me off my feet for a
            month. Two accupuncture sessions combined with moxubustion and herbal
            bathing of the foot for a week cleared the problem out with no missed time
            even working out. Remember, Chinese medicine is often associated with
            martial arts practitioners - guys who train hard themselves.

            Any wrist problems I've had stemmed from a small forearm muscle (pronator
            teres) irritated from ten years of more of computer mouse usage. And one
            third of the incidents of carpal tunnel syndrome are misdaignoses pronator
            teres problems. ART works rapidly on that problem. Overly tight pecs can run
            havoc on your wrist - including cutting down to off the blood flow,
            resulting in your hands going number. In the human body, everything is more
            connected to everything else than is oftern apparent.

            good luck & best regards,

            Ken

              Hey Greg,

              I love the squat. I see very few people in my gym working on squats or legs for that matter. Anyhow, my wrists still hurts, but upon the advice of you folks on this list, I visited a sports clinic more than a week ago. I have a couple minute tears on both wrists so I have to take the time and let them heal. This means little or no biceps training for the while. Also, I need to ice the area a few times a day. So far this simply application has been working, the pain is still there but not as severe as before. One last thing, I also took Ken O' Neil's advice on acupunture. Thanks Ken, I did a couple sessions already and the relief I had with this treatment is amazing. I live in Trinidad & Tobago and there are not so many places you can go for help on matters like this so again, thanks to all of you for your advice. I think the combination of icing, total rest and acupuncture lend themselves to me being able to lick this problem.
              Have a good one.

              Neil.

              Like the others said - see a doctor. Sound like carpal tunnel.

              This is a great opportunity for you to scrap the curls and work the squat etc
