Recently, I gave some advice to a guy who appears to have a chronic wrist injury due to his bboying activity. My advice apart from him seeking medical advice (which he probably will ignore till it gets worse), was for him to strengthen his wrist and forearm while avoiding movements that aggravate his injury.
Exercises such as squeezing a tennis ball or wringing the water out of a wet towel are convenient and easy to perform. Just wring your wet clothes or towel during a bath. You don't even have to sweat to have a good wrist and forearm workout!

If any of you are interested in taking online courses from reputable institutions for free, check out https://www.coursera.org/. From the info on the website, Coursera is an education company that partners with the top universities and organizations in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free.
I took a course on “Exercise Physiology: Understanding the Athlete Within” by Mark Hargreaves (University of Melbourne). On my own, I find reading up on this subject challenging from a recreational reader’s point of view. Either the reads contain too much info or they are too specific. However, this course allows me learn specifically on key topics/issues such as fuels, heat and fluids.
Hope you guys find something that interests you in there!

An alternative to the Valslide
Some of you may have heard or seen the Valslide and the exercises that can be performed with it. For those who are keen to purchase one but find the prices to be unfriendly on your budget like me, you may consider using furniture sliders instead. They function similarly to the Valslide and only cost a fraction of its price.
I have been using the Supersliders By Waxman and it works fine with me (though I have never use the Valslide before). To make some money to realize my dream of having my own training facility, I am selling the sliders for SGD 6/piece, meaning it will cost you $12 if you want to own a pair (to dummy proof your understanding).
It will be featured in the store section in time to come. Meanwhile, pop me an email if you are interested. Happy Sliding! Here is a picture of the one that I'm currently using.
