Injury

Recommended Posts

Aidan Bentham

Hi guys, I just joined this forum. I have been doing calisthenics for nearly a year and around a month ago I had a sharp pain in my right forearm (with the palm facing upwards, the pain is at the top left side.) It hurts when I release the pressure from it. For example I will do a tucked planche and when my arms are off the ground a shooting pain goes up my right forearm. The inpatient person I am I trained on it and as much as I love calisthenics and gymnastics I don't want to stop but I need a good old break, even with a break i did little bits here anf there. I personally think it was due to handstand walking and shock to my muscles etc. I have gone to the docs and they just said rest. I tried self massaging it and that just hurt

He knows the best. There is no quicker recovery method for this kind of injury. Warm up your wrist before you start training handstand and planche again.

Handstand one contains wrist exercises which will help to strenghten wrists and avoid any possible injuries.

Handstand one is the way to go. And also don't rush on this GST stuff, take a step back on your planche training basic planks that doesn't hurt your forearms until you get the right preparation and training.

Yes, but you will potentially make it worse if you keep training on it :)

Rest it!

Not as much as possible; as much as needed. Don't do ANYTHING that causes pain.
