Hi guys, have always got great help from this forum so let’s see if it continues:
Training partner is suffering pain in the left anterior (flexor) compartment of his forearm with any bicep curls. (He is right handed)
Now… the pain lasts for up to a week after one medium-heavy set and will also affect his ability to bench, O/H press etc. which makes me suspect stretching of the flexors irritates the condition.
he can do hammers, reverse curls, pullups, chinups, rows etc etc… all with NO issue. It is only this supinated position that causes grief and changing bars (thick, thin, EZ-curl, straight etc.) makes no difference.
I checked him out for medial epicondylitis but he shows no pain on palpation of the common flexor tendon. There is no neural signs in terms of loss of feeling in the fingers so medial nerve compression seems out of the clincal range.
