    I was going to suggest this. We start our patients with this and then progress to elbows and toes.

        Griff my friend... is the real question... " How do I strengthen my wrist to catch up with the rest of my routine?"

        When a joint or muscle hurts, back off. Try again gently... if it still hurts back off again. I know from experience that it can take many months for a joint to really heal.

        Continue to exercise but rest the wrist. Test the wrist gently, but back off on the sign of pain.

        You and I have been here together from our start in 09. Train the long term.
