Rest Day

Did 1500M row just to do something. I focused on getting an efficient rowing technique.

Question for you all: There’s something wrong with my wrists that prevents me from flexing them backwards in the front squat position to support the barbell. (Tendonitis, carpal tunnel - IDK,  I haven’t been to the doctor about it as it doesn’t impact any daily functional movement). Now that I’m increasing the weight in my WODs it’s really impacting my power output. In today’s workout I had to take breaks in the thruster sets due to wrist pain and not muscle fatigue. Any advice on modifying bar grip position? I found that it hurt slightly less, and I could get my elbows higher to compensate, when I hooked my thumbs behind the bar (in line with my fingers.) Is this a valid and safe position to press in?

Try this Ginamf http://youtu.be/qMCsHd-dpLo  Front Squats ,Receiving cleans, all require a great deal of wrist stretching, fingers also. The pain goes away with time by developing increased range of motion There are videos on line for how Olympic lifters stretch before workouts. Learning those techniques would be a good idea http://youtu.be/3pcPb4zprYM                  .In the case of your IDK not sure. As far as no thumb grip on pressing,I prefer to control the bar with my thumbs wrapped around at all times for safety.Good luck to you.

Thanks OPG!
