    Wrist pain (only 1 wrist)

    My left wrist hurts when i rotate it too far left or right. It's the tendon that's connected to the "knot" of the wrist.

    It hurts when I rotate it too far either way and when I do curls/skullcrushers/close-grips.

    Should I lay off these movements for a while? Is this a common problem?

    thanks

    How long have you had the problem? You may need to rest it for awhile or at least avoid exercises that put the most stress on it for a while. Another thing you could do is try to find a stiff wrap to put around your wrists to support it when it bends.

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    I just noticed it yesterday when doing tris/bis. The day before that, I did squats and I *MIGHT* have hurt it doing those. On my final rep, I struggled to finish the lift and was forced to lean forward and push the bar up a little bit with my hands. If this is the cause, how long should it take to heal?

    It could be any number of things, I had a similar issue. My best advice to you is to wrap it loosely before every workout, and obviously don't do the motions that hurt it. If it's just a sprain, it should go away after a few weeks... if it's something worse, get it scoped. A messed up wrist will ruin all your lifting, trust me. You can't do a damn thing if you can't grab a bar.

    I agree with B. If you just hurt it it may only be a sprain and wrapping it will give you a little support. If it persists I'd see a doctor.
