    Wrist pain

    I'm now on 22 day of baseline and i only chose this program because i can't put much weight on my wrists and elbows and there are no floor exercises. I spent 4 years at home doing nothing so i'm very weak, but i feel like i could do a lot more. I don't think it's because my wrists are weak because i've been playing guitar for a while, but the second i put weight on them it hurts a lot. The fireheart program looks fun, but there are push ups, planks etc. What could i replace those exercises with?

    So your wrists actually hurt when you try to do a push-up? Even on the first one?

    Wrists hurting after a couple of them would indicate weakness, but them hurting as soon as you put load on them suggests that they are already injured in some way. Which would indicate that you should go to a doctor.

      Noen They hurt even before i do a push up. Just from getting into position. Same with my elbows. If i do an elbow plank my elbows hurt. I've been to the doctor many times, i was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, but then after more tests they found nothing wrong and said that my autism is causing all the pain. I can't look for a decent doctor right now because of covid, so in the meantime i want to find a way to do some exercise

        You can do modified planks and push ups in place of regular ones. You can get wrist braces to help support your wrists too. If your over weight then thryre going to hurt until you get stronger and/or lose weight.

          Hi spageciai and Welcome to the Hive, I use this excercise as a warm-up for fingerwork (towelhangs, fingertip-pushups...) like 5 reps each. In the comments people say it helped with wrist pain, so you might give it a shot.
          All the best.
