    Wrist pain

    September 7, 2018, 11:44 am

    Hi Scott

    Again I want to thank you very much for responding as fast as you do :)

    About 4 months ago I started to experience wrist pain (only in my left wrist) whenever I did any supinated biceps exercives or very heavy benching (3-4 reps). I went to my doctor who told me to stop lifting as heavy and not train as much. However the pain did not go away so I stopped completely working out for 10 days.

     

    After that I began again and I removed all suinated biceps exercives which, I think, was the main reason for the problem to begin with. However, I recently tried doing some supinated biceps exercives, for example ez bar curls and even though the weight is light (10-12 reps) I still experience wrist pain.

    At the momemt I am also cutting which is the reason why I try to lift as heavy as possible. This means I also experience some discomfort in my left wrist when I bench heavy (3-4) but it does not hurt, however, it does feel nice either. I also use wrist wraps to try to avoid any injury.

    I would really like to try out your PPL when i'm done cutting in about 1-1.5 months but I am not sure if I would be able because of the heavy benching. So I just do light bench (8-12) or something completely else?

     

    Thank you in advance :)

    @thebigguy1337 My pleasure man! Sorry to hear about the wrist pain.

     

    Are you making sure to keep your wrists straight on every exercise? Because bent wrists can be a major cause of wrist pain. Double check that, and if you are already keeping them straight, using wraps and you're still getting pain on light curls, I'd say there is an issue that needs working through. Maybe go and see a massage therapist about it as well and see if they can help!

     

    But for the PPL workout, just work as heavy and as hard as your wrist allows. If you have to go lighter on bench with more reps, that's fine, it just means you won't be focused as much on strength building.

    Hi Scott,

     

    Thanks for the replay!

     

    Should I maybe just do 5 sets of 8-12 reps on bench on both push A and B and 1 set of AMRAP (20-30?)


    Thank you very much! :)

    @thebigguy1337 Sure that would work! You could maybe even pyramid down from 12 reps to 8. So your 5 sets might look like this...

     

    12, 10, 10, 8, 8

     

    That way you can still work on some overload where you're increasing the weight!
