Hands cramping when cold...leading to armpump

Recommended Posts

Okay guys, heres the deal. When it's cold out my hands begin to cramp up. Once they do it leads to armpump, then im SOL. I never get armpump when it's warm. I've tried several things such as hand warmers, wore rubber gloves which helped some. Done my normal warm up routine on the line, and none of it seems to work. I've sat in the trailer literally infront of a propane heater until my class was literally loading onto the gate and still had problems. I have no problems at all gripping the bike with my legs. It started on friday in practice, hands got cold, then arm pump. After that the whole weekend was a crap shoot. I'm usually a consistent top 5ish C class rider so any ideas or tips on how to help fix this guys? Once my hands cramp up, its all over for my arms. I can't wait until this heat comes back to fl. :thumbsup: Thanks, justin.

Make sure to warm up your forearms, those are the muscles that control your hands. If you are only warming your hands, that is not really doing anything.
