After 3 months, my wrist finally made a full recovery... so before re-starting my 5x5 program, I decided to determine my new maxes... which re-injured my damn wrist...
The first time i injured myself, it was from the bent-over bb row... the weight was probably too heavy for my forearms, and so something in my wrist got pulled.
I'm pretty sure the 2nd injury was tirggered from the same thing.
dammit... now i'm gonna have to take at least another month off.
What would you suggest I do once I recover again?
How can I prevent this from happening again?
I really wanna get back into training because I think I'm losing a lot of muscle... especially after 3-4 months of inactivity.
I know this sounds obvious, but avoid exercises that lean heavily on the wrists.
I'd also buy wrist wraps too...I recently had to buy them for a reoccuring problem with my left wrist. Glucosomine w/ MSM wouldn't hurt either.
