Forearm pain from HS work

Recommended Posts

Deins Drengers

Hi !

 

 

I have some pain in my forearms during my HS work and it goes like this: 

 

The pain occurs right at the end of the set ( HS to wall ) When I press my fingers to the ground for balance.

When i let go - I have this big pain for 1-2 seconds in my wrist flexors i think. 

 

I can still feel the pain ( but in a lesser way ) when i press my fingers into that spot where it was hurting) Like trying to massage that spot.

 

Is this a sign of ovetraining ?

Any advices on how to prevent it ? Or its just that my forearms arent adapted to the HS work ?

 

Again - The pain only occurs at the end of the set  when i have pressed my fingers to the ground for balance. If i dont press my fingers for balance then there is no pain.

 

Sorry for my bad english

 

Thank you !

You have forearm splints I'm 99.9% sure, I had this exact same thing a few years ago. (google it)

I'm sorry to say that but you are way overtrained and you'll have to back off for a month or two from everything that puts a stress on your forearms the way it hurts until it is healed and ease back into work in a few months time.

There are many-many things you can do meanwhile to prehab. The rice bucket is one of the best ways to ease the pain.
Also... use Joshua's wrist roller, this is a MUST DO, it can do wonders and much-much better then the forearm/wrist exercises with dumbbells or anything.



and finally two things that will help you tremendously but only after like two months of prehab:
           -start to do planche leans properly ( read after this on the forums on this topic) start with a pretty minimal lean and increase it a little consistently every 8-12 weeks until your arms are at your hips.
           - do not overstrain anything after you are pretty much healed, if you have the opportunity, do the F1 course this will prepare you for everything that comes, and ease into the handstand work slowly too, in the meantime, try to open your shoulders, and prepare your wrists


I'm by no means an expert and these tips are based upon my experiences.

Rice bucket is amazing, I've used it to recover from some injuries.  It gets all the blood to the wrists and forearms. 

 

This reminds me I need to make another one
