My wrists!

I have been noticing, when I start getting up to my heavier weights on any lift that has weight at shoulder height, my wrists start to hurt a little bit. I definitely would not consider it a injury as it only continues to pain me a minute or two after I stop lifting. Though it is still quite bothersome, and I'm thinking it might become a bigger problem later. So what could be the problem? Form perhaps? Any input is greatly appreciated.

Re: My wrists!

If they're too tight, heavy weight can do that

YOu probably need to stretch them and do some prehabilitation work

Re: My wrists!

Are your wrists flexed or are they in line with the bones in your arm, as if you were going to punch someone?

Re: My wrists!

They are in the same kind of position that you would have it if you were going to hit something with your palm. Does that matter?

Re: My wrists!

Yes, that means they are flexed. You need to stretch them more but as the weight gets heavy ( more than BW ), it just sort of sucks to hold it like that.

Okay. I can just change the way I hold it right?

Re: My wrists!

Yes, if you hold it inline with the bones in your arm.
