Major pains in wrists after squatting-time for wraps?

    When trying to let go of the bar after squatting my wrist is sore, properly sore untill I prise the fingers of my right hand off the bar-I probably had a small fracture in that wrist years back but its never any trouble even when benching so I dont know if its related or not.
    Anyway, any chance wrist wraps might help?

    Yes. But hand position is crucial too. I'll post up a video tomorrow about it.

    great shout on the hand position
    with about half your squatting weight on the bar
    stand as if you are about to squat, in front of a mirror and look at your hands
    try and twist your hands so that your knuckle face up towards the ceiling

    it is a strange feeling if you are not used to it
    and it can throw off your balance but practice will sort it
    goodluck

    Grip the bar as tight as possible during sets. I found my wrist pain was caused by bar rolling back gradually during a set stretching wrist and putting pressure on it. In short your starting grip might be OK but what's your finishing one?

    When you'r benching you probably have your wrists in line with your forearm where as with your squats I'd imagine that you'r letting your wrists fall back and therefore your wrists are taking on a lot of the weight of the bar.
