Hi guys i think i have pretty weak hands/ fingers , it took me a long time to even be able to hang on to a bar for a while and my hands are always cold , the blood flow is pretty bad i guess.

After a set of say pull ups , my hands are all cramped up, white, bloodless and they stay in a claw position for a while , it takes a minute before i'm able to stretch my fingers again.

Now at some nights i woke up with my hands both "sleeping" , i don't know if thats an english expression aswell , but it's like my hands are totally numb and it feels very ackward and starts to freak me out a little since it seems to get worse.

Was wondering if anyone recognizes this ?!

I read the Convict Conditioning 2 part on fingertip push ups , so i figured this could very well be a solution for me since i train my grip a lot with Bjj and calisthenics but never do or did anything to train my extensors.

So i did my first fingertip push ups last night and guess what.. woke up with my hands feeling like they were paralyzed again.

yo, you need to take it easy. take a week off, read CC2, and start from the beginning of the progressions. don't try to be a hero cause you can mess yourself up easily right now and the rehab will take a long time.

I agree. Go see a doctor. What I can reccomend is tob start taking fish oil. It will increase your blood flow.

I have absolutely 0 confidence in my doctor.
For the past years every visit that i came in with a question his answer was : "Lets let it be for a couple of weeks and we'll see what happens".

At the time of these visits i have already waited multiple weeks if not months.

I always have to search the internet , find exactly whats wrong , and get back to him and demand a reference to a specialist or some specific medicine which he than instantly gives out.

My diet is already pretty good and balanced ,supplements included and i have taken weeks and even more off pretty often.

I guess i could start everything from the bottom , but since i have taken over a month off and no change i don't really have faith that that would work wonders.

ps: the fingertip " push ups" i did the first time were standing against the wall (step 1)

Perhaps you are having some nerve entrapment problems (in this particular case it looks like cubital tunnel syndrome, google for it) which have to be taken seriously.

If you are worried about it certainly go and see a doctor as others have suggested.

I have a thing called Raynaud's Phenomenon which is quite common 1 in 12 men and 1 in 9 women. It seems to be exactly what you are describing here, i found out by searching the internet a few years ago. In most cases its nothing to worry about.

It only affects me in the winter as it is triggered by the cold air.

Just Google it or take a look at this link and see if these are the symtoms you are having.

This is just a suggestion but i hope it helps Smile

Thanks a lot guys , really appreciate the responses.

Cubital tunnel syndrome is very probable after reading the symptoms.
And i might have a light form of Raynaud's phenomenon aswell. lol

I've decided to try and build up the fingertip push ups a little more ,
i'll be training fulltime in Brazil in a couple of months , so i'll wait and see what the climate change does for me and if its still a bother afterwards , ill change doctor and see a new one.

Osu!
