    Hey guys,

    Since I'm 5'10" and 200 lbs. i figure I'll most likely go up against people that are taller than me so I've been angling my punches upwards during my heavy bag workouts. Lately I've been getting some pain on the proximal phalanges and m e t acarpals of my pinky and ring fingers. I'm guessing it's when I throw heavy hooks and the angle of impact is probably causing a jamming at the knuckle. Anyway, has anybody else experience this? If so, what did you do about it.

    Oh!, Also, I don't wrap my hands, I just put on the training gloves and go to town. I guess it doesn't help that the stupid wavemaster is beatup and I usually hit the internal tubing on some of the punches.

    Either way, any contructive answers/comments are appreciated!

    Sorry for the spacing on m e t acarpals. The post just shows ****carpals if I type it as oe word.

    It sounds like you already know the answer to the question. You need a new bag, and wrap your hands. Also all your punches should be landing on your first 2 knuckles, not your pinky.
