    I broke my left wrist when I was younger.. Now I'm starting to lift and i'm having problems with it.. I'm guess I have to stregthen them a little. Anyone got any tips on how to do that?

    I don't really remeber how bad it was.. I think it was a complete break. I been working out now for about 2 months. I'm starting to move up to higher weights and my wrist starts to tremble..

    I will try the wrist curls and see if that helps.. Thanks.

    definetly need to develop your forearm muscles then..........every time you lift remember to squeeze the bar very tightly......That will help you develop the muscle a little bit......

    Hmm. I didn't think about that. Seems like from my elbow up hasn't really been effected by working out. I guess I'm now doing that enough.

    What lifts are you having issues with it? I bet it's chest exercises...

    Try this... it helped me and my wrists haven't really hurt for about 2 months.

    It's been going around a lot lately but... try not 'resting' the bar on your wrists, but gripping it. It'll feel a little weird at first, but take a lot of tension off the wrists.

    So your knuckles will be pretty much parallel with your arms... not pointed backwards if you get my drift.
