    So I used to box a good amount and suffered 4 severely sprained wrists which would put me put for roughly weeks each time. Recently I unfortunately had to get in a fight and the same think happened. Does this happen so easily to me from just having weak wrists or should i be stretching before or something? haha

    I've always heard that having a sprain only increases the likelihood of having another sprain. Probably along the same lines as the saying, "it's better to break something, than to seriously sprain it." When a break heals properly it can go back to normal. A sprain seems to leave you never quite the same... always a little worse for the wear. If it's something you're really worried about, I'd say you could stretch your forearms, and do some work to strengthen the muscles, AND tendons around the wrist. A scan of the area could alert you to/rule out, a malformation in the tendons.

    definitely try to stay away from fist fights icon_lol.gif

    You can buy a pair of Gold's Gym workout gloves at Walmart that have a wrist support. That won't help you strengthen your wrists but it will help with lifting heavy without stressing the wrists as much. Do targeted exercises to strengthen them.

    And why the hell are you getting in a fist fight? I've never been in one in my life and never avoided one either. Real men don't need to fight.

    I was in a fist fight because someone started being disrespectful and then got aggressive with me. Real men don't preemptively judge someone's character haha. Thanks for a half way helpful response.

    No, I think you have a short temper and a childish sense of proportionality. Real men don't find themselves in fist fights. And disregarding your private message, I'll not fight you over this. Sorry I responded to your post. You're a jerk. haha

    In reality, you made a judgement and insulted my character based off of one sentence lol. Now I'm short tempered, a jerk, and childish. If someone tries to hurt me I am never going to stand there doing nothing and get beat up and hurt. Nor will I go looking for a fight like I have already said. I wouldn't consider myself a real man if I made no effort to defend myself. But you must be the manly, you can tell over the internet along with a short sentence whether someone is a real man or not. Thank you for teaching me something new about myself. I'm enlightened.

    Must look bad to be responding in such a manner with a few posts, but I did not come here to argue. Was simply looking for input without judgement of my character.

    Ugh... I really hate it when someone implies their manliness is somehow greater than someone else's. It's the definition of childish.

    But, to counterbalance that... mitch you're reply on the thread was totally appropriate. What's with escalating the situation by sending a private message? That's "how to be a jerk 101"

    So maybe the manly thing to do, would be to acknowledge your own reckless behaviors, and exchange apologies?

    Could it be repetitive strain injury?
