About six months ago, I hurt my wrist whilst doing deadlifts with an underhanded grip (i.e. the position at the top of the deadlift looks like the bottom of a bicep curl). The pain was at the base of my wrist on the little finger side just above the round bony bit that sticks out.
I stopped doing the offending exercise and all was good.
Then today, whilst doing pullups on a tree branch (overhand grip) I experienced exactly the same injury. The tree branch was about the same circumference as a loaf of bread, and it is angled, so obviously it was very different to pull-ups using a pull up bar.
As soon as I felt the pain, I stopped and turned around (i.e. so the branch would be sloping in the opposite direction relative to my body), with the same result.
I've done plenty of pull-ups on that same tree before with no injury, so not sure why I hurt myself today.
Unloaded, my wrist feels 98%, no real pain and no loss of motion.
Any suggestions as to what might have happened? And what should I do? How long should I rest my wrist?
