I have big arms and thin wrist, what do I need to do to make my wrists bigger and stronger??
inject steriods into your wrists....or spend 4 minutes searching the forums when you have a question to see how many times someone's prob asked it....do pushups on ur knuckles man...
I prefer HGH.
do wrist curls
my wrists r completely ****ed and hav been for the last 7 months. its something u will want to take serious and strenthen around it or u can do wat i am and getting pissed off not training. to prevent injury i use alasta plast tape then put my handwraps on and then duct tape over my handwraps. also do wrist curls with light weight
wrist curls if you can.
just make sure you wrap your hands every time you hit the bag.
SMALL wrists don't mean much at all, my friend.
It's the strength, and strength of your tendons in our wrists, that count.
Some things that few do, but should are hand grippers, outstretched holds of something heavy. Some good old grip training.
And something that my physiotherapist told me to do when I had a problem with my wrists.
My wrists weren't tight enough to withstand the power of my punches (wrist's fault, rather than inexplicable power). So, He gave me a rubber stick (various colours according to difficulty), rather like a dildo. To shake around, twist, in order to tighten them wrists. Something like pulling the brakes on a bicycle would also be good practise.
I reckon wrist curls are overrated.
Of course, a good 2 month strength program always helps.
Hit the heavy bag but only with bag gloves...
or no gloves...
Here's a bunch of wrist/forearm exercises...

I use a gyroscope ball found for sale online on most sale, or auction sites.
If I tell you where, my posting gets erased.
It is a fast cure, and it builds your strength from your shoulder to your finger tips.
This is my true life cure I have used many times when I get injured.
You are limp wristed.
I think the only thing you can do to treat it is 'conversion therapy' at your local church.
I had the same problem when I started boxing years ago.
Knuckle Pushups (knuckles parallel to the body, and knuckles perpendicular to the body switch these ups periodically)
Fingertip pushups (I saw Wlad Klitschko doing these, they strengthen the hand and build the wrist and forearms)
Heavy bag punching: Punching the heavy bag will strengthen the wrists as well. Be sure to go at a pace and intensity which is comfortable and doesn't bother your wrists.
