    Mine don't get really sore but a little when i'm doing heavy weight. Also when I do DB bench the are more sore because you have to keep the weight stable with your wrists.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Is this your first time or what?

    you probably let the bar roll back onto your wrists instead of keeping them straight

    keep your wrist straight and pointing up.

    wrist bands could help

    my wrists are screwed up from doing competition benching and I am only 20 y/o. Try out some wrist wraps or do what I do and work less on the barbell. Now I try and spend more time with dumbells and the machines to make up for it. less stress on my wrists.
