Kong Posted September 23, 2015 Share Posted September 23, 2015 (edited) Hi, I'm new to rings training. I've been training for only 1 month. The thing is... When I do the German Hang or Tuck BL with the chin-up grip, everything is fine. But I believe the right way is to keep a chin-up false grip, right? Well, when I do that, I can't even get into the German Hang because I feel a pain on the right/outer side of my right wrist, as if it is twisting too much. But on the left wrist, everything is fine.Considering I've never injured my wrists, how can I solve this pain & mobility issue? UPDATEAttention: This is just a record of my progression. I am not advising anyone to do anything!Well, turns out it wasn't that hard or complicated.I received some tips from a friend that helped me a lot. I'm not advising anyone to do what I did since it doesn't mean that what's good for me is good for you, but I think it's nice to have it registered here. It shows people how greatly useful this forum can be.1) I received this video from a friend that was trying to help me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ptcaLJLkeE .2) I tried every stretch shown in the video and started doing almost all of them. I gave more attention to those that felt like would help with my problem.3) I stopped doing most of the stretches, giving attention only to the specific ones.4) Now, the following is what helped THE MOST!I felt like doing Shoulder Dislocates with an Undergrip, like in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhKVjO6waso .I had never seen this exercise before, just felt like trying. The wrist position when the hands come to the front of the body was the perfect stretch for me.5) Number 4 went for two weeks or so. Then I decided to try to get to the German Hang with the false grip. It was weird and I was scared... So I decided to invert the order. I started standing, holding the rings with the hands on my back, in the German Hang position, but I was touching the ground. Then I held the rings with a false grip and SLOWLY let my body hang. Suddenly I was doing a German Hang with False Grip!!6) I did number 5 many times to get warmed up and try to advance a little further. Then I tried to do a Skin the Cat and get into the German Hang already holding the false grip. And it worked like a charm!! No pain at all!!7) Now I'm doing my Back Lever progressions with false grip and everything is fine!! Edited November 10, 2015 by Kong Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
