Cure carpal tunnel with kettlebell snatch?


New member
I had an experience with my hands becoming stiff and weaker after doing a massive amount of keyboard work on a high stress project. After a few weeks I wondered if I was getting the carpal tunnel syndrome? BUT, I persisted with my usual KB routines and after each session I felt better. No problems, now.

My experience was with repetitive keyboard work, but my brother-in-law says he is getting carpal tunnel from carrying heavy suitcases full of product samples. No motion of fingers, just keeping the grip tight seems to be causing his problem.

I am reluctant to recommend kb snatches for him.

Have any of you experienced carpal tunnel problems by doing farmer's carry or deadlifts?

It may not be carpal tunnel, but an over-gripping issues(over-training) Of course only the doc can tell him that.
This is the very reason I have all of my clients do opposite motions or what I call "anti-grip" drills.
if I offer any advise it would be for him to get super joints and practice the reverse gripping mobility drills.
There is of course a medical exam as well.:)
