    hey guys,


    Just wondering if any of you have gotten wrist pains from lifting. I started getting them this saturday and im not sure if it's related, it's a muscle pain and it's not unbearable but annoying. im going to the doctors this friday for a general check up anyway but just wanted to know if any of you have experienced the same thing

    I got them when I was first starting, my friends get them when they just start. Your wrists aren't used to having that much pressure on them and sometimes at odd angles, they'll get stronger eventually. It's worth asking about anyways.

    I was getting them after the first few weeks. But they went away in 2-3 more weeks.

    not too sure as how much validity it holds but i read in the latest flex magazine that short sets with heavy weight cause deterioration to the joints.... yet, by just occaisionally alternating in a light weight-high rep set, you will actually be working proactive on making your joints stronger.
