Wrist Trouble? Some Fixes And Insight

When you’re “hitting it hard” and working out regularly with intensity, you’re bound to run into some discomfort at one point or another. With proper form, deliberate movement and stretching through your workouts, most of these discomforts should be minor without slowing your progress or putting you at a dead stop. Some of the most common areas for this “pangs” are wrists, shoulders, knees and back… “knees and back… knees and baaaaack…“.

As it turns out, I’ve enjoyed discomfort in all of the above to varying degrees– especially the wrist so I wanted to pass on the Dr. Chang love when it comes to proper form and making sure your wrists stay strong in supporting you as so many moves in Insanity, Asylum and P90X involve using them. What I appreciate most about this and worthy of a pass-along is Dr. Chang’s description of the “kinetic chain”– parts of your body that tie together to perform a movement function. When overworked, some areas may cause pain where there’s actually not much of a problem.

I plan to continue posting these bits as they become available as I’m no Doc (though I do know some in real life) and alignment and form are critical (yet easily overlooked) when training.  In all, these clips from Dr. Mark Chang provide great tips here to keep in mind as you continue to dedicate yourself to your workouts:

    I’m one of those that can’t do pushups without pushup stands or dumb bells to keep my wrists from tweaking. maybe I should look at the rotator in the shoulder as the doctor said. Hmmmm?
