    Reoccuring wrist tendinitis and weak wrists.


    I've been dealing with wrist pain on and off for a year now. I believe it's tendinitis, but my old doc would never do an MRI for it and I haven't asked my new doc yet since the pain came back about 3 weeks ago. It doesn't pain me to do any of my workouts, except ez bar curls. I need to use wrist wraps and add thickness to the bar, by wrapping the the part that you grip with a towel or else I'll get wrist and forearm pain. I know my forearms are weak compared to my biceps even though I do hammer curls. I was wondering if doing exercises like wrist curls can actually strengthen my wrists and get rid of the pain. At this point I know if I do nothing the pain will never go away.

    I'd focus on your forearm extensors for a little while. Strength wise and ART wise (deep massage) It's possible your flexors are overdeveloped. This has helped me anyway.

    Grip work would help out and wrist curls/extensions is not sufficient. Plate pinches, DB holds, farmers walks, etc.

    Grip work! Skip the ez bar curls they aren't very effective any ways. Do some close grip chins and pullups/pulldowns, deadlifts, or barbell rows. That ez curl bar puts your wrist in an awkward position, if u have to do curls use dumbbells fully supinated

    Yes not at first but over time just stop with the curls that's exacerbating the problem

    Really well. They'll not only strengthen your grip, but the thicker surface eases the amount of strain on the forearm.

    I would avoid it IMO they're a waste of time. Heavy pulling exercises are the best for grip strength and forearm development. Have u ever seen someone that deadlifts 400lbs and has weak forearms? Probably not, get some fat gripz, I'm about to get some myself and use em on my warm ups with deads and Pendaly BB Rows.

    Pulling 225 with Fat Gripz is a humbling experience, especially if you don't have large hands.

    As appsoed to starting a new thread, would all of this apply the same for pain from a broken wrist...not still broken obviously... almost a year now but still ome pain and strange cracks on wrist curl and reverse curls (not hammer) and especially rear forearm work.
    In this economy... Your two cents aint worth ****!
