Question tuck planche - problem with wrists

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 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.

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.
