My wrists hurt when i do pushups. My doctor said that i could not workout with my hands becuse they do not grow fast enough. Are there some ways how to workout without my hands? So i had to pause, but i miss my trainings. So please help folks

How about sports where there is no (much) direct stress on hands, like running, soccer, swimming, hiking etc.? And asking your doctor what kind of workouts are ok? Good luck, mate, don't give up!

Not saying this is what you should do, but this is what I do when my wrists act up, and I've had problems for years. Instead of the standard pushup with your palms flat on the floor, grab some dumbells like your gonna do renegade rows and do your pushups. Your hands, wrists and forearms will retain more of a straight line instead of bending at the wrist.
I also looked through some of the workouts on this app and these might help:
Hand And Wrist
Physical Therapy-wrist, elbow, shoulder
Talk it over with your physician or physical therapist. They may be able to come up with a better solution for you. Good luck to you :-)
