Re: Wrist pain!!

Thanks for the responses guys, I never tried any kind of straps or handles other than the ones which come with the ski erg new model. Wraps might be an idea.

Wrist pain!!

My wrist aches often anyway regardless of exercise, I had to stop using the ski erg a few years ago (did intense intervals) due to the pain. A direct pull might ...
