Default Wrist Strength

Can anyone give me advice on how to strengthen my wrists?
Push ups and drinking more milk are helping but can anyone suggest anything else?

Thanks alot.

these things r excellent. I got one for christmas and i havent stopped using it. i used to have constant problems with my left wrist when i fought cos i broke it years ago and it never healed properly, but since using the powerball i can feel the difference in my wrist and have fought twice since buying it without problems.

It occurs to me that the powerball......................gives you no more of a workout than an intense whack-off session

That animated gif of "Akis" on the main page is hilarious.

wrist weights are called that.....................cause they fit on your wrists.........................besides a secondary effect, they don't actually do anything for your wrists. same with ankle weights, but oddly enough, penis weights do exactly what they are intended for

the powerballs that wer linked to seem to just help strengthen the fingers and hands, which would probably help your wrist strength a bit, but it might not be very dramatic in terms of effectiveness.


try rope climbing. this, as an exercise, gets overlooked a lot. also, you might want to try out handstands as well. i know i love 'em.

wrist strength is a tough one.. i have tried forearm curls and extentions and all that crap, i do medicine ball stuff regularly, i grew up climbing trees so my grip strength is tremendous, my hands look like muscles.. but wrist strength seems to be genetic. i will have lanky easy to injure wrists no matter how much muscle i put on my forearms
