Wow! It's February and this is the first post of the year...
Anyway, in working dilligently on the thai pads and a heavy bag yesterday, my wrists are screaming at me. I also broke the metacarpal of my index finger a couple of months ago and it just doesn't want to heal.
I take ibuprophin for the discomfort and inflamation but, outside of that, I really don't know what to do. I want my wrists and hands to grow stronger so, I'm not real sure I want to wrap them every time I hit the bags. Any suggestions?
Give em a rest until they are fully healed. Exercise/ rehab them, but go light on the punching. There is so much other stuff you can be working on, not only in striking but also throws, grappling, etc. Good luck with your recovery!
