also, forgot to mention - shake out your wrists in between sets. i will warm up, stretch the wrists out as pictured, and then will continue to do so in between most sets, shaking them first. since i started doing all this, the constant (and often quite bad) wrist pain i was experiencing is gone.

I tried those stretches today after the thumb starting acting up, and it really killed the pain; I could handle a lot more volume.

Thanks.

That hook grip stretch...hmm. I've never felt a stretch there before.

I like the flexor + thumb one too.

Good stuff Greg.

Sweet! Yeah, I was freaking out a couple months ago when my wrists started screaming anytime I, well, touched anything. Now I train essentially pain free. And I can actually push off the floor without having to make a fist to keep my wrist neutral.

Thanks again for the suggestions, my wrists though not 100% have been feeling better. Now I just need to remember to ice them consistently and I'll be set!
