I've done a lot of searching and havent been able to find what I'm looking for.
I have nasty wrist pain in both of my wrists and my bad left shoulder (tore the rotator cuff playing football) is hurting a bit as well
I've been working out fairly regularly for the past 3 years. About 6 weeks ago, I started buckling down really hard...I had gotten home from college and so I had a bunch of free time and so of course I was going to work out more.
I was going 4 days a week for the first 3 weeks. I was doing a 3 day split + a day of cardio. After that I switched to 5 days a week. 4 day split + a day of cardio.
The last time I was on a really hardcore program (maxing squat and bench every week...it was a west side barbell routine) I got this same sort of wrist/shoulder pain but not as bad. Thus, to avoid it I figured that I would make sure I wasn't going really heavy...so instead of doing 3 or 5 rep sets, I've been doing 8-12 rep sets...and going for a good 8 rep max as my last set.
I thought this was safe, but lately they've been really bothering me. They were bothering me quite a bit on chest/tri day. (Monday) Back/bi day was worse even though I was taking it easy. (Tuesday) When I tried to do curls that was nightmarish. I did 1 set of two different types and that was all I could bear..
That was yesterday and now today my wrists are constantly hurting me. Typing at the computer hurts, driving my car hurts, even freaking changing clothes. So I don't know where to go from here.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm just trying to paint the picture.
