So I have no problem doing pull-ups, parallel grip pull-ups, etc.
However a supinated grip in about any exercise causes severe pain in the forearm. I can't even hang in a chin-up grip position (hands facing me).
It feels like my forearm and bicep could snap at any time.
I occasionally get some bicep tendonitis, but I keep this at bay with lots of stretches, foam rolling, mobility drills ,etc.
But I can't make any progress on the chin-up grip position. Even super light lat pulldowns with a chin-ups grip is painful.
I have tried googling this but had no luck. Anyone else have this problem, diagnose what it might be, or have suggestions on how to correct it?
I don't know if it's a forearm issue, a shoulder issue, or tight lats. All I know is it sucks not being able to do that motion.
Even bent over rows with a supinated grip is a big no no for me. Same feeling like my forearm could snap at any time.
Thanks for any input on the subject matter.
