Posted:I can honestly say I have never spun for 8 hours straight but I would imagine that the muscle break down would be the same just as if you were using weights. Your rists are sore because they need to heal. I recommend a day of not spinning and some tylonol or something like that.

Posted:Different joints are really meant for different types of use. Ankles are meant for a lot of bumping around and wear and tear, but they aren't nearly as flexible as wrists.

Wrists are flexible and have fine control, but eight straight hours of twirling is almost certainly outside the capability of a typical wrist joint.

I'm wondering why you are twirling for eight hours straight. It can cause repetitive strain injury (like carpal tunnel syndrome) and muscle wasting. You need to allow your wrists to recover. Lay off the spinning for a little while. And then, don't routinely do eight-hour non-stop sessions.
