heh last friday a friend came in town and we went out to eat. we went to this awesome restaurant that serves these giant spinach pies as entrees. although it was delicious, i felt like shit for about 24 hours. aside from that and thanksgiving i've been pretty clean recently. thanksgiving was more sugar than anything else.
[QUOTE=Gittit Shwartz;45244]Paralette work hurts my wrist if the pressure is more on the thumb side of the hand (as in planches and handstands; L-sits are OK). I do planche work with the hands turned sideways or backwards. You could try that. It's a slight leverage disadvantage, but it beats injury
i normally like to warm up most hand balancing motions with an elbow stand with fingers pointing backward toward my feet. i'll normally do cat pose, upward dog, pigeon, and planks with the fingers pointing back because i like how it doesn't pressure my wrist and i can really get a good shoulder rotation warm-up before i go into harder stuff.
come to think of it, i don't think i've ever had that bad feeling where the hand relaxes and then stretches while i point my fingers backward. maybe i'll just try to work planches with that position. dunno about handstands though.
