I agree with TAREN584 - the stands might help you out a lot, particularly those that will rotate when you come down, so you don't hinder your range of motion. Otherwise, can you wear wrist supports and do the push ups on your knuckles with straight wrists? Even if there aren't push ups, there's lots of plank work (due to the benefit of strengthening the core, etc) and there aren't a whole lot of modifications for them based on the intensity of the exercises

Do your wrists hurt when you do pushups because you have to bend them weird? If this is the case you could get the pushup stands which allow you to have straight wrists when doing the pushups. This would also allow you to do some of the things. There is a lot of plank work in insanity.

hello everyone.
I am about to start insanity, and i have a question. I have a bad wrist, so can not be doing a lot of the pushups, or anything else like that. So what would be a good way to modify the workout, or another workout to put in its place?
