Francisco Mouro posted a topic in StrengthHello everyone! I am new at this forum and, first of all, I would like to thank everyone for the good advice and useful posts already submitted. I have a few questions that I hopped to see clarified. I started with calisthenic training about 5 months ago. First, I trained in the bars and then, about two months ago, I moved to gymnastic rings. I mastered the muscle up in both equipment, first in the bar and then in the rings. Then, I wanted to start with other gymnastic moves on the rings. But a few weeks ago, when I started training for the muscle up on the rings, I started feeling an annoying pain on my wrist around the place were it lands on the ring for the false grip. I read somewhere that it was normal to feel that pain and I continued training, doing sets of false grip pull ups and muscle ups. Of course, I got to a point were I was injured and possibly with a wrist tendinitis. So I stopped and rested. Now I am back, and I've tried the muscle up on the rings for the first time in about 3 weeks. I do not feel the same ache on the wrist, but I fell aches on the hand muscles. I feel them when I close my hand for instance, and although they are not unbearable they are uncomfortable. Is this normal? Can it be related with my previous injury? Or can it be only related with the grip, since I spend so much time doing skin the cat, inverted hang, back-lever, etc? I have read posts from more experienced people saying that usually these injuries are related with overtraining and the temptation of doing stuff that is beyond our level of strength. I do not discard this possibility and I don't mind to go down a few notches in my training to avoid pain and aches. But I would like to ask if someone knows how to properly evaluate our strength level and how to create a program of training in accordance to the level in which I am. Sorry for the long post! Cheers!
