they usually do have an orientation, but it's all the way in Langley and i didn't go when i did my meet
imo there's not much to know, just read over the handbooks, everything is pretty straight forward

74kg is up to 163.14lbs, anything over and you'll be in the 83kg class

Lack of potassium maybe? Eat some/more bananas, potatoes and yams. That was my problem and once I started getting more potassium in, I was fine..

Nice. Just making sure I don't have to cut weight. I'll keep in touch with you if I have further questions.

Water, drink lots and lots of water. I try to have a sip of water every 10 minutes or so

I also keep myself really nice and bundled up, shorts underneath sweats so I am warm enough in this damned vancouver weather

remember reading somewhere that cold temperature causes insufficiency in contractile properties of muscle

Like what the others said, get some potassium in you. Also stretch on your off days. Could you post the link to your singlet again. Perhaps noodles can add that link to the weightlifting equipment sticky

Started to lift with an actual routine 3 years ago. I did bench and biceps in highshool if you want to count that lol. I'm 20 now. And thanks. Not nearly as impressive as some of the other guys in this thread, but I'm getting there.

I've sprained my wrist pretty bad a couple times and I've always let it rest/strengthening exercises.

I start with a tennis ball, squeezing it, letting go, repeat. For maybe 5 minutes? Until I feel satisfied. Add more resistance by finding something with less give, i.e// lacross ball.

Second: I move to finding a glove or Thick elastic bands, put it over my fingers/thumb included, and gradually open your fingers out, like a claw. Let it back in a gradual manner again. Do this often again or increase resistance by finding a smaller sized circumferanced glove or add more elastic bands.

Third, I move to gripping weights heavily (thicker grip weights help imo), making sure my wrist are inline. And start light and work your way up. Nothing super heavy, just keep at it.

And simply not over straining it or putting it in an awkward position for a bit and rest!, (So no heavy benches, OH press, Shoulder Press, etc that puts your weak wrist in a potentially bad position) these techniques have helped me over and over again.

Side note: How did you injure it?
thanks for the reply and the tips.

Yeah I guess no benching, or OHP for awhile, which sucks cause I was seeing progress. I have been massaging it and applying medicine on it, and its feeling a lot better though.

I am not sure what caused it, but I think it was doing dumbbell press and held it at an awkward position.

Sounds like a TFCC injury. It's very common with sports and training. What happens is the disc or the two ligaments that make up the complex could be sprained. Common injury is from moving the weight up/down from dumbell press. All you can really do is immobilize it. When you are working out only do exercises in neutral and watch the transitions with moving weights (Esp with dumbell press). If it continues go check out a hand specialist I have one I can refer to you if needed. Just make sure in the future with dumbell pressing you take your time lifting and transition the weight up and down slowly and keep the wrist as neutral as possible. When you start getting into heavier weights, the wrist will be the weakest point.
