    maybe your wrists aren't strong enough yet to support the weight. are you new to weightlifting? I feel soreness in my wrists sometimes when I increase with bench.

    Mine used to kill me when I first started...After bulking for a while, it went away. Mainly just focus on lifts and the forearm strenght will come. I also did wrist curls for a while in the beginning to try to speed up the process (dont know if it helped or not).

    Like any injury, you should get it checked out by the doctor.

    Wrist strengthing
    - Farmers walk
    - Wrist curls
    - Those springy things

    Perhaps also drop your weight in bicep curls and do slow controlled ones. Often people are using their back to lift the bar which kinda defeats the purpose.

    I broke one of my wrists before and it's hurt ever since. I personally use wrist wraps on heavier lifts which definitely help alleviate the pain because they provide added support and limit wrist motion to some extent.

    I have the same thing and use wrist wraps to limit range of motion...it helps alot.

    Along with a steady diet of fish oil and Glucosamine and Chondroitin..

    I also don't preacher curl anymore ..or any exercise that puts too much strain on my wrists for that matter.
