Currently I'm working on several calisthenics exercises which put a lot of stress on my wrists (such as stradle planche to handstand). I already do warmups and stretches before I start doing worksets.

I've noticed that lately my wrists sometimes have this nagging pain outside of working out. I'm wondering if it's just soreness or an actual injury in an early stage.

Is there more I can do to prevent wrist pain from occurring? For example after my workout? Or during the day?

  • I'm assuming you do them off the floor as opposed to using handles? – Dark Hippo Oct 25 '18 at 10:03
  • @DarkHippo I've actually been trying both, but lately I've done it on the floor for the most part, which requires a lot more wrist flexibility. It doesn't feel like I'm not flexible enough though, it feels more as if there is too much stress on my wrist when doing these movements. – MJB Oct 25 '18 at 12:27

    I'd love to write a detailed answer, but unfortunately I'd be stealing most of it from here gmb.io/wrists ;) – Dark Hippo Oct 25 '18 at 12:42
  • @DarkHippo Thanks, interesting article. I'm already doing some of these exercises but not all so I'm going to give them a try. And I'm leaving the question open for now to see if there are other suggestions :) – MJB Oct 26 '18 at 6:51
