I have started tuck planche level and occured serious problem. When I lean forward, raise up my knees off the ground and get weight to the arms I feel pain of my wrists. I think my muscles of wrists aren't prepared to weight of my body, so I would like to know what kind of exercises I have to do in order to build more strenght to my wrists

Try doing this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2w1PeSR8G4&feature=channel) as part of your warm up on days where you're going to train the planche.

Also, Coach Sommer has some really good wrist prehab/rehab movements on his website (http://gymnasticbodies.com/forum/).

Build yourself some parallettes.

Are your fingers facing straight forward? This requires a ton more flexibility and is not really necessary. Try to point your hands to the sides or backwards to alleviate the pain.

If its a pain of pressure sensations then you will likely need to lay off for a while and ice/massage until the pain subsides.

Wrist re/prehab is always recommended, though.
