About ten years ago one of my wrist started hurting during/after the bench press. I started using some kind of wrist wrap to see if it would help. The one I used wasn’t really made for weight lifting, but it did help. I eventually had the same problem with the other wrist. I’m not sure exactly why, but the compression hurts my wrists (maybe this is a common problem among lifters).
Anyway, the solution has been pretty simple–if I wear wraps, my wrists don’t hurt at all. I eventually ran across Inzer Wrist Wraps, and I’ve been using this brand for about a decade now, and I highly recommend them.
I usually use the 20 inch, but you can decide according to your own preference. You can click here to shop for Inzer Wrist Wraps -on Amazon.com.
