Brage Berg Posted January 31, 2014 Share Posted January 31, 2014 hi everyone! i am new to this forum, but it looks like there are a lot of competent bodyweight athletes here. ive been doing bodywaight exercises for about two years now and i just discovered coach sommers book; building the gymnastics body witch i found really interresting. therefor i have decided to change the fokus of my training and to try and follow a few of the principles found in the book. the first thing i have to adress is a injuriy i have been dealing with, and i hope some of you could help me. ive been training for planche for a while and i found som tutorials where people recomendet that i did the following exercise;lay on the floor with your feet toutvhing the wall. putt your hands besides your hip and walk up the wall to a handstand. then slide down to a planche using the wall as support. i 45 degrees angle on my wrists. i did this for a few month, and everytime i felt a sting in my forearm after letting go. i thought at the time that this was fine, but after a while it started to hurt after the exercise as well. looking back i hunderstand that the reason probably was inmobility in my wrists, and this exercise forces your wrist in a position that it might nok be able to hold. the pain is located along the bone that goes from elbow to the pinky finger side of the wrist. i still train planches but now i have to have the fingers pointing towards my toes while training it. and i now fokus on leans and flat tuck variations that mye wrist feels comfertable with. the only movements that really hurts are; planche with hands 45 deg angle, backlever with narrow neutral grip, and some random movements with hands in an awkward position(tried biceps curls with a friend once and that hurt like hell). what could this be? i cant really afford to go to physio. and should i stop training for a while or is it just fine as long as i do stuff that doesent hurt( or hurt too mutch)?. its been going on since last summer. it has been getting a bit better though after i started stretching my wrists/forearms.
