    Default Wrists Burning

    No matter how relax and fluid I may be playing that day, when I sit down and really push myself there’s always a tempo where wrists burn depending on the rudiment. As I have revealed here before, speed has been my biggest weakness every since I started caring about tempo, so how fast I can play has never been impressive. That said, I am still trying to push myself.

    Is this normal with you guys as well? Is it like working out where your muscles burn because ran for a really long time really fast?

    I've been practicing with marching sticks on an Evans REALFEEL pad, and when I try to go faster than what I'm capable of, my technique falls apart, and sometimes my wrists and forearms simply give up. So for me, it's like muscle failure. I don't get burning, my hands just give up. I was doing dumbbell bench last night, heavy for me, light for many of you... and my arms and chest just gave up. Luckily, I'm able to hold on, and just waddle over to put the dumbbells away. That's the kind of muscle failure I'm trying to describe.

    With most of us we all want to play the absolute best we can play and that includes pushing ourselves to the limit sometimes. Burning muscles indicates some type of temporary damage which usually heals itself in a few days, but it could also mean setting yourself up for a more serious or even permanent condition in the future. I guess just using some common sense about this situation would be the best thing to do. Usually your body will tell you when something going on is not normal. I'm not a physician but this what I go by for myself.
