Firstly, troll. Secondly, only if you let it hang down is that sort of weight is doable, but you lose a good portion of the wrist ROM, and that sort of weight is unneccessay for prehab/rehab, especially when Troy is already having wrist troubles. You could also use a power rack attachment to hold it for you, but then it's still an unneccessary amount of weight. I stand by what I said.

We actually have a freestanding roller stand at my gym, which is nice. Mounted is very different than doing it with an unattached stick; the latter always seemed more like a shoulder workout to me. I've been working up by 5lb a workout just for shits and giggles. Not sure yet what the point is but it's fun.

So far I have just made sure to be consistent with my wrist push-ups, usually doing
3x7 after isometrics and concentrics. I also went back and re-read Steven's bodyweight article and found a link to Ido's wrist warm-up. So far the pain is gone so we shall see.
