    Default Wrist pain should i still work out?

    A week ago i was working out my shoulders and i think i tweaked my left wrist and now it hurts everytime I do a move that requires my left wrist to bend outwards (which is alot of exercises). should i completely stop working out til it goes away? would be ok to just stop doing the work outs that hurt?

    also what kind of injury do you guys think it is? I have never had this sort of joint pain in my wrist and never have been injured from weight lifting.

    thanks

    If the pain is intense enough you should have it looked at by a professional. If it is mild pain you can try limiting your weight, and if it still is irritated you may need to just eliminate lifts that cause it pain until it heals.

    I have carpel tunnel in my right wrist so there are times when I just have to go easy on it, and I can almost never do forearm curls.

    You could also look into wrapping your left wrist and hand durring your work out, to give it a little support.

    I had alot of wrist pain when I first started back into the gym. They still slightly ache every now and then but i've noticed they're alot thicker and can handle alot more weight. Apparently I had tiny wrists and could lift more weight then they could handle. I just had my wife pick me up some weight lifting gloves with wrist straps and it helped out alot. Be sure you are lifting with proper form especially on curling movements. If the pain persists see your Doctor and/or drop the weight a bit.

    I got it before, I dont know about you, but when I
    felt it, it was because of wrong form, or to extreme.

    Using wristwraps is good to use.
    I use them if i lift much or do cable workouts.

    I use Gasp WristWraps.
