gymbabeliz - wrist flexion help

I used to be a gymnast years ago & while I am still flexible now I find my wrists have lost alot of their old flexion abilities like in yoga the balance poses when your full body weight is on your wrists, I can do the balance thing really easily but it hurts my wrists abit I think from putting weight on at an angle which I always did in gym like in tumbling. Any ideas how I can improve on this again? I can do wrist curls etc to strengthen them but not sure if that would help with the flexion?

    When i came back to doing gym again after several years off, my wrists hurt like you wouldnt believe just doing handstands and stuff. But after a while it wore off, it could be just a case of getting used to it again. My wrists definitely got stronger though just from making sure i held them really straight doing bicep curls and similar, so it could be combination of increasing the strength aswell. Personally I never did any specific wrist work and the pain went away anyway.

    How long have you been having the problems for and is it getting worse rather than better?

    Well I've only really noticed it from doing yoga as you dont really have that demand in normal daily activities but in yoga there are quite a few poses which put weight on the wrists which is why I noticed I've lost the flexion a bit - I guess its just practice & they will probably improve with time like most things. Thanks
