    Wrists hurt from bmx

    When i am doing bunny hops/jet hops {(and sometimes jumping) (im jumping about 1 foot)**, my wrists really hurt me and there is a pain in them the next day when i move them in different directions. My suspect is that i need to strengthen them or there is something wrong with my wrists. What do u guys think?, (umm, if i need to strengthen them, can u tell me a website or some excerises to help strenghthen them.

    I must have spelled strengthen wrong, i think so.

    Use the search button i think theres allready a thread on this.

    You're probly landing wrong/bad.

    Backtire first or both tires at the same time. Use your elbows and knees to take impact.

    Ish. Kinda. Word.

    Sometimes you need to just let your bars adapt to your wrist. If they don't different bars may help. But, im sure you found most of that in the other theads.

    get some bars with a little bit more sweep...like 12* of backsweep.

    the problem may be your bars dont have enough sweep.

    thicker grips and gloves help too it also help to keep your wrist in a straight line with your fore arm if its bent in anyway when you land or pack on ou can end up actually dislocating it if you pack hard enough seen it done it myself push ups also help

    I really wouldn't say it's something you need to get used to. I've had it so bad at times I could barely move my wrists at all and had to stop for a few days. You just may need better bars, and to stop casing so much. But nosemanuals still kill my wrists.

    When was the last time you did a nosemanual?!


    Probly like a million years ago before your leg died.


    Anywho, toughen up. And get bigger bars with more sweep. That should help a bit.

    Also angle your bars with your headtube or forks, that may help too.

    Haha. I did a nosemanual a little over 8 months ago, that's when. It hurt them then and would most likely hurt them now too. I really want new bars, but I want to get more important parts first.

    Get some Slams, and cut them down to like hella short. You'd like 'em. Admit it.

    I doubt I would like them... they would be way too tall for me. I did think about the Scerbos though... even though they are a bit tall.

    Just get wider/taller bars, with more sweep.

    I'd run them if I got them for free... they are a bit heavy though, not that it matters that much.

    I'm not as bad as a lot of other people, I would like my bike to be a bit lighter, since it still weighs around 30 lbs.
