    Last Friday I was doing bis and tris at the gym and I got really bad pains in both of my forearms, so I stopped. I rested and the pain went away, but the same thing happened today and its killing me right now. All I can say is that it's comparable to shin splints. Anyone exeperienced this before? Any advice?

    As far as I know, it's not too much weight because it started with my first set of nosebreakers. I started at 65 pounds since I'm only 4 months deep into weightlifting, but I can easily handle that. It only hurts when I put pressure on something and then release. It's the release that hurts so much.

    I had the exact same thing. I would often hold on to the bar for several seconds after a set of bicep curls because it starts to hurt as soon as I release my grip. I started taking lots of calcium suppliments thinking that I had weak bones or something, but it didn't really make a difference. Only thing that helped was using ez-curl bars instead of the straight bar, probably because you grip with your palms more perpendicular to the floor like hammer curls. Don't know what else to tell ya. Maybe it's something to do with your frame. I have small wrists and a small frame overall, how about you?

    I started in October at 6' 168 and now I'm up to 192 pounds, so my frame isn't small and my wrists are about 8 inches around. The strange thing is that I hadn't gotten this pain until last week, so I was fine for several months. Maybe it might help if I post my arm workout:
    Superset 5 sets of nosebreakers and preacher curls
    Superset 4 sets of tricep extensions and dumbbell curls
    Superset 4 sets of kick backs and straight bar curls
    4 sets of reverse curls

    You're right, but I'd like to be able to complete my workout on Monday.

    and I'm giving you a serious answer, kick the barbell curls and then secondly find a better routine. You don't need that sort of volume just for your biceps.

    And he's fucking giving you an answer. Why don't I jump off of tall buildings without a parachute? Because I will fucking die. Why don't I do straight bar curls? Because they fucking hurt. Simple enough?

    That's a pretty serious answer. I'd just stop doing them if they hurt. :ugh:

    No one here seems to pay attention to what I'm saying. The pain started way before I did barbell curls, so they aren't the problem. Secondly, I asked why the barbell curls are hurting. If anyone could tell me why barbell curls hurt, that would be great.

    its got to do with the position the barbell puts your wrists and forearms,its probably a combination of inflexibility and the unnatura positionl . Use dumbells. Secondly, it is the barbell curls that is causing your arm problems, ( well that and your retarded fucking routine) The nose breakers you do first just flare up the existing problem.
