Been playing for a number of years, went out of the country for about a month. I came back and jammed with my band and after about 20 minutes my wrist was killing me! Now I know I can rebuild my wrist strength with practice but anyone know of any exercises that I could do to buff them up more quickly or stronger than they were before? Preferably something I could do while I'm sitting at my desk at work, etc.

and maybe some sort of stressball?

Which wrist? Because if anything hurts it's bad technique, not strength. It's super important to try to keep your wrists as straight as possible when playing.

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

Fair. It's my fretting hand. I think my wrist is fairly straight, was trying to picture it in my head just now...

Did you do anything while you were gone?

A month of no guitar shouldn't have that effect.

No, I didn't do anything...maybe I need to look at my technique more, maybe it was messed up from day one...****.

Don't forget that with that straightness has to be relaxed, if it's all tense and stiff etc. (thats what she said) then it will ache after a while. But if you want more strength so you can endure more in say, a long gig, then go the stress ball.
