I have noticed this pain in my forearm, i don’t think it is elbow tendents because it happens in the middle of my forearm and to the side, i kinda have been getting this pain when doing curls, its like my bones are about to crack after a finish a couple of sets.
i use a ez bar, and i have tried a straight bar but that gives me even more pain and even in my wrists…what is this?
also i notice that nothing happens if i do reverse curls, so i guess i might cut out the normal curls and just go heavy on revuerse curls, and weighted chins[/quote]
I’m guessing that when you curl you have your wrists bent towards you, this will recruit your forearms and if they are weaker than your biceps they will give out first. All you need to do is bend your wrists away from you which takes your forearms out of the movement (you will need to drop the weight).
You wouldn’t get this with reverse curls as you wrists tend to stay neutral when you do these (although now that I think of it a hybrid wrist curl and reverse curl sounds quite good, I’ll have to try it tomorrow). Stick with the curls, just take your forearms out of the movement.
