recently i have decided to get into shape, not that im particularry unhealthy, as i cycle 8 mile a day, and eat ok. however that doesnt really help upper body strengh.
i have started by lifting 3 sets of 12 reps of bench presses, bicep curls, and raise dumbell above my head aternately from a bicep curl, idk what thats called but it does my shoulders, triceps and biceps.
im not lifting allot of wieght, but by the end i feel tired and 'worked out'.
however, i have this pain in my wrist since i startedand they click a lot. however it doesnt stop when i stoplifting wieghts, ie it continues all day. is this common and what is causing it. it has happened before, usually when i up the wieght im lifting as i naturally get stronger. sorry if this is basic stuff but im very new to all this.
I can't really give you good advice, accept.. do some squats and deadlifts boy!

Pain in wrist from doing exercises that you don't even know what they are called. I can't help you either.
Great read on the 10 top ten myths of Bodybuilding nutrition by Dave Barr (T-Nation).
Wrist pain can be caused from using the barbell on the bench press. If you are, maybe try using the dumbells instead. If the pain is always there, maybe think about strengthening your forearms/hands/wrists. You can use grippers, and do a variety of stuff with a short bar with weight on the end. Also plate pinches. Another thing that's good for your grip (as already mentioned) is deadlifting.
However, if the pain is serious and constant, dont try and "work through it". See a physician and get it diagnosed to avoid having it become a long-term problem.
Oh yeah, and learn the names of the exercises you're doing! It's not atomic physics!
