    ok, last week, after i did shoulders and arms later on in the pm, my wrists really hurt. it was so bad the day after that i couldn't turn my palms up. so i took about 5 days off and they seemed to be better. i went to the gym today, and when lifting, there was still a bit of soreness. i can turn my palms up with the left hand no pain, but the right hand is still sore... and when i kinda role my wrists, there's this sound where you get when you sprained something. so what do i do? or what is wrong? i'm guessing it's just over use and strain, and i do have really small joints so they're pretty weak. any help guys?

    Just some inflammation caused by training. Is it the site of an old injury? I would just try to find the exercises that seem to exacerbate it and avoid them for a little while.

    just out of curiousity, do you do barbell curls, if so, this may be a factor in your problem, i had the same problem after doing barbell curls for an extended period of time (although it didn't help the problem when i dropped the d-bell on it). anyways, like chris said, find the root of the problem and just drop that exercise/s for a while and see if the problem goes a way.

    Being on a computer doesn't help those wrists too much either. I was a computer science major for a year and a half and was always on my computer. Pretty soon I found myself having to take some pills and wearing a carpal tunnel wrist thing for a while because of the pain.

    I got weak wrists too. best advice I can give, what worked for me, on curls and such, DO NOT force your wrist to curl as your curling the weight. I used to have it so that my wrist was curled, palm up, facing the elbow as I brought the weight up, and I found that was about 90% of the problem. Also, doing too much work for bi's seems to fatigue the wrist.
