When I do barbell curls, either straight bar or EZ bar I get a BAD pain in my forearms near the end of the set, and as soon as I set the weight down it hurts like HELL.
The pain is on the ulnar (pinky) side about halfway down and it lasts a good 20 seconds after I’m done with the set. The heavier the set the worse it is, and the only thing I can seem to do to relieve it a little is hyper-pronate my hands (thumbs down, palms out). I don’t know what the hell’s causing this pain, I know the biceps supinates the hand but I don’t know about the brachiallis (sp?) or any other muscles that could be causing this.
Anyone have a similar experience/problem or know what the cause/causes could be of this? I think if this keeps up I’m gonna have to start doing only hammer curls for biceps, because it even hurts when I just use DB’s with my hands supinated.
