I know the right answer is probably to go see a doctor, but i am cheap and people on the internet know everything.
I have pain in the middle of my right wrist when doing higher weights for dumbell presses (the gym i go to doesnt have bars), pushups, or when i bend my hand too far back. It is getting to where anything that pushes my hand back will casue pain, or i will lift and it will be ok, and then hurt later. I have pretty much given up on doing reguar pushups, or any high weight (65+ dumbells) Low weight still hurts sometimes, but isnt as bad. I can do knuckle pushups ones because my wrist doesnt bend. Anyone else ever have this problem, or know of how to fix it?
Thank you all knowing internet people.
I've had this problem before.
For your dumbbell presses, try keeping your wrists turned so that they're facing each other. That might take some pressure off of your wrists.
For push ups, get a set of push up stands or use a set of dumbbells as push up stands. Not only does it virtually eliminate all the pain in your wrists, but you can do virtually every kind of push up out there with them, and you get the added benefit of greater range of motion with the stands/dumbbells.
