Sore wrists

Anyone else experienced sore wrist joints, these have slowly developed along with tendinitis in my fore arms, particularly when doing flat bench. Im just looking at resting for 2 weeks and taking anti inflammatory.

    DO you use an EZ style bar in any exercise?
     
    Preacher bench etc?

    I tend to get sore wrists only when I'm doing reverse curls for the forearms, and I've found that using cables instead of a barbell is more comfortable.

    I use an ez bar for curling, it tends to be from the compression on my wrist joints when benching.

    There are two ways to bench (wrist wise) and it's hand back or hand under. Hand back will put a strain on your wrists. It shifts the point where the bar sits from over your palm and directly over your forearm to over the hand and away from where it needs to be. Hence the pain and why so many use wraps.

    Think I'll invest in some straps.
