Well I’ve been reading on T-Nation for approximately 6 months, started at a gym about 3 months ago, I already made some decent progress with my deadlift and bench press. Lately (last 2 weeks) I’ve had issues with my forearms though.
Everytime I do any kind of bicep curl (dumbbell, EZ-bar, robe) the outer side of my forearms start to hurt like fuck, it’s very painful. I don’t feel any pain when doing hammer curls though! I’m having a hard time figuring out what my problem is.
My wrists and forearms are not very big (yet :P), so might be due to the lack of muscle mass? I used to do some wrist curls, but now I get that same feeling of pain on the outer side of both my forearms.
As a test today, I tried to just do an ordinary bicep curl with dumbbells, after 4 reps my forearms were hurting so much I had to drop the dumbbells on the floor.
Any takes on what my issue is, and how to solve it would be very much appreciated.
All the best,
By the way: By outer side of the forearm I mean the right side of your forearm when you strecht out your right arm.
