My suggestion is to use wrist supporting gloves, which you can find at pretty much any dealer. Also, take you time in between punch combinations to be aware of your wrists and where they are going to go as your hands hit the bag. Really, the simplest thing to do is focus on throwing good punches, but that one's kind of obvious.

simple exercise.. take a 5 lb weight.. round weight like for a barbell... tie a rope to it.. tie the rope to the center of bar about 2-3 feet long.. grab the bar on both ends and wind the weight up then down... the rope should be long enough that when your arms are extended straight out the weight should be about an inch or 2 off the ground.. keep arms straight out in front of you going up and down... alternate between going fast and slow.. and you can always add weight as it gets easier.

I would definitely suggest wrist wraps here. If your wrists are giving in from the impact of your punches to the point that your starting to feel pain, you're going to need the extra support to help facilitate that. Most sets of wrist wraps will run your from $4 to $10 depending on what brand you get. You should be able to find them at any local sporting goods store (if it's not an outdoors type place).

yea the straps will help with support while striking.. and the weights will help build up strength until the straps are no longer needed

this exercise is amazing...helps a lot....

and the knucles push ups work to....give it some rest also in the bag work...concentrate on footwork, and speed instead of heavy bag work....injuries need time to heal....1 or 2 weeks of no heavy bag work would be good for u...
