Could be weak wrists, you could possibly use straps/wrist wraps to get around this, or build up your wrists so that they don't become your achillies. There does become a point in heavy lifting though where you're better off using straps.
My opinion counts for nothing."I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

I get this sometimes since I've went to almost all free weighted exercises..It gets better. Just keep plugging away unless it is an actual injury feeling discomfort?

Try to widen your grip a little bit it will take more stress of your wrists. Straps to will relieve some of the stress

I think your wrist will build up to the amount of stress you put on them. I never had wrist problems with anything intill I had a computer class for 1.5 hours a day. Also do some exercises to strengthen them wrist curls, hammer curls, reverse barbell curls.

I did fracture both epiphyseal plates on my right wrist, but surprisingly its my left wrist that dislocates easiest. I guess I just rely on my connective tissue to keep my hands attached to the bar, lol.

try using DBs instead for your upright rows.not a very good exercise anyhow. a great way to strengthen the wrist is by using a heavy hammer or a DB bar with collars and # on one end to simulate a hammer.hold it down at your side so its pointing forward andbend the wrist up and down. do as many as you can then switch hands and repeat for a few sets.do them at the end of your workout or on seperate days. check fighttraining homepage for some cool inventions for wrist tools.
