video – wrist strengthening device

I’ve known a lot of gymnasts who left the sport due to wrist injury. The vast majority of high level male gymnasts endure some degree of chronic wrist pain.

As a coach I am hyper-cautious about wrist pain. (I do not like static handstands on floor of long duration, for example. Parallettes are much safer.)

Many coaches include wrist strengthening exercises as part of an injury prevention conditioning program.
