You know that discomfort you get in your outer forearm/wrist flexors when you curl with a straight bar instead of the e-z bar? Lately it’s gotten worse, even if I use dumbbells and put my wrists in the best position possible.
Is this a repetitive stress injury? It really sucks, since I haven’t gotten a good arm workout in a long time. Recently I stopped curling or doing anything forearm intensive for 2 weeks, but after starting again it hasn’t seemed to help very much.
I’ve also read deep tissue massage might help. Has anyone else had this problem and managed to overcome it?
