Hey guys i have been noticing some pain in my left wrist right on the top, which i think may be from the heavy weights i am pushing/pulling in WBB1.
Any advice on what i can do to aleviate and prevent this pain.
Is there something i am doing wrong? and any exercises to strengthen my wrist?

your form is probably incorrect.

My advice would be to take a week or two off until your wrist feels completely better and then come back to lifting but use slightly lighter weights than what you were using when you injured it. This is a pretty common problem for beginners I believe because some parts of your body havnt adjusted to lifting as quickly as others.
try reverse wrist curls to strengthen them up....I also used wrist wraps once and awhile, but you dont want to rely on them. It goes away in time.
i have the sameee problem on my left wrist... thats weird... it doesnt hurt a lot... its just sore tho

the more you use your car, the more often you need to put gas in it...
the more you work your body, the more food you need to put into it...
EXACTLY!!! Do direct wrist work...I can't stress this enough...so few people take the time to do direct wrist work. There must be a half dozen people on this board complaining of wrist pain and none of them do DIRECT WRIST WORK.Originally Posted by MnM
I am often asked by people at the gym "How do I lose fat from my tummy so my abs will show"
My standard answer: "Get drunk and find yourself a sharp knife"
350lb Incline Bench
285lb Push Press
May be you need to take a week off or something. Recently i suddenly developed some sort of pain in my left shoulder, and a very uncomfortable irritation in my left-lowerback (probably from doing deadlift). So i took a week off (last week)...came back all the pains went away, and my deadlift improved.

You gotta be nuts not to do direct forearm work.
i have the same problem in my left wrist
it used to be worse because i didn't have good form, but i use good form now and it still hurts whenever i let go of weight (preachers curl and sometimes dumbbells)...the thing is, it's not like a constant pain, it's only for like 10 seconds after i let go and i don't feel it anymore, i took a week off about a month ago to see if it'd get better and it was better for about 2 days and it came back, i just say **** it, i'll keep lifting
