    Is there a specific punch that seems to set things off? I actually chipped my ulnar styloid throwing left uppercuts with terrible form. I was having similar problems with hooks until I started bringing my elbow up in line with my wrist. Until you get decent form, I've found the Everlast gel with hand wrap to work pretty well. The gel provides decent knuckle cushioning so you can focus on the wrist with the wrap.

    Mexican style wrist wraps will solve your problem and also cowbell bench press's will help.

    Arcan, talk to your coach. If your form is off you can really **** yourself up. Your coach should be paying close attention to you if you've hurt yourself. If you're all worried, or kind of new to it, don't go too bat **** crazy on the bag. Take some time to work on your form, technique, stamina and speed. Build up slowly, or else you're gonna get hurt...

    Yeah, unfortunately I figured that out after the hurting. But it's mostly healed now, and I don't punch the bag unless I have my wrists wrapped up tight.

    Chipped your ulnar styloid? How hell were you punching, with your wrists? You recommended everlast gel hand wraps. The only thing i'd recommend them for is hitting pillows or something soft like a puppy. Or maybe an emergency toilet paper substitute.Those gloves are the shittiest excuse for a "hand wrap" i've every seen. They suck, how dare you recommend them.
    Other than that great post Arcan!

    In order of importance (1,2 have been addressed already)
    1. form
    2. equipment
    3. conditioning

    3. would be Bench press (flat, incline, decline)
    But doing good heavy lifting takes a whole another discipline in pacing your improvements correctly.. ask el macho

    You're also probably punching with your arm, trying to shove in more power by pushing into the bag as hard as you can. Doesn't work that way. Work on form.. if you do 1. and 2. correctly, you don't even need 3 until you really want to up your power.

    I wear them under either bag gloves or the 4oz gloves. They provide more protection than just hand wraps, although I don't think they're sufficient by themselves. Although are you talking about the Everlast gel wraps that just have the velcro closures and not the hand wrap? Cause if you are then I agree completely.

    And I was throwing an upper cut with my wrist slightly angled in and slightly flexed, ie. massive fail.

    I guess wearing them under gloves may help. I still think regular wraps are better. Besides, whats with the gel if you're already wearing a glove, how much protection do you need?

    What were you punching at when you broke your wrist? I'll make sure not to punch it. Sounds like a bad way to hurt yourself.

    We do a lot of switching from gloves to bare hands and it just takes too damn long for me to wrap my wrists using regular wrist wraps. If not for that I think I'd just stay with the regular wraps under bag or heavy gloves.
