    After working out for a couple months my forearms start to ache. It usually happens worst when i'm doing curls. When I go to set the bar down after doing a set my forearms are really tight and painful, I have to slowly let go of the bar and after a couple seconds they will slowly release and feel better.

    It's not really the forearm muscle, it feels more like the bone in the middle of my arm below my forearm... I can push on my arms where it gets tight when I do my sets and it'll hurt pretty fuckin bad. The pain usually builds up over time until the point I quit working out becuase it's effecting all my excercises, even when i'm not working out they'll hurt. I can't play basketball cuase I can't dribble and shit.

    Does anyone else have this problem? If so what did you do about it? Some people at my gym said they had something like that and to just keep working out and it will eventually go away, but that doesn't work for me it just keeps getting worse.

    I used to get a really bad pain in my forearms too. If you from the "knot" bone right below the wrist and follow that bone down, it'd happen right on the muscle that covers it when you flex your forearm, about halfway down the arm.

    I just stopped doing barbell curls for the time being.

    the weight of the bar creates moment force on the ulna which usually ends up feeling like searing pain in the forearm. so yeah try either a cambered bar or just hammer curls or dumbells for a while if you have to do curls

    it means you do too many curls.


    this is a newb mistake.

    I do this during the week...

    monday: 3X5 incline seated curls
    wednesday: 4 sets of pullups

    this should be all you need, no more. God, it amazes me how many people just do curls and bench everytime they go to the gym...

    shut the fuck up, did you see anything about my routine in my post? I do 3x5 sometimes 5x5 barbell curls on back day, thats it.

    if anyone's the noob it's your stupid ass for working back and bi's on seperate days.

    Alright, lets analyze what happened here.

    I make post saying I have a forearm pain

    two people post saying stop doing barbell curls

    I post saying. ok i'm going to stop doing barbell curls

    Then some asshole comes in and says that it's not from barbell curls, it's from me being a noob and although he knows nothing about my workout routine it's from me doing to many curls, and he knows that i only do curls and bench everyday.

    I post saying he's an idiot and to shut up, further agreeing with the first two posts.

    Then here comes rev's stupid ass, saying that i'm the noob becuase this topic has already been covered, and to stop doing barbell curls. Which btw, proved that the person I called an idiot and told to shut up was wrong.

    I then reply to rev that it's already been covered and I already said I was going to stop.

    Then rev posts that I've talked a bunch of sarcasm and bullshit to "people" and to fuck off... I only told ONE person to shut up, and that was becuase he assumed I was some noob doing curls and bench everyday and this was the problem. REV you yourself said it was becuase of the barbell curls, why are you trying to defend this idiot.

    then rev posts again saying stop doing barbell curls (already been covered, I already told you this)

    Then I say it's already covered, you can stop trying to up your post count...

    Then rev says, OH you came in here looking for a fight! (when he is the one who came in looking for a fight) you replied with sarcasm to the first person! NO idiot, I took the first persons suggestions and said I was going to stop... I replied with sarcasm to the faggot that said I was a noob that my pain was becuase of doing curls and bench everyday (he was wrong, you even said this)... YOU DIDN'T fix my problem, my problem was fixed with the FIRST reply, it's like you just pretend like the beginning of my thread doesn't exist.

    Seriously, learn to fucking read, I already told you to scroll up and read the beginning of the thread once, do I need to repeat everything for you, again?

    Yea, when I used to work out years ago I did barbell curls and the pain started, I eventually stopped becuase of it... then I came back and started using the ezbar becuase it wasn't so hard on the forearms, now they are hurting again and all i've used is the ezbar... so i guess no more palm up curls for me.

    I have the same problem, so I followed Ceaze's advice. I started doing hammer curls, pull ups, decline curls (rotate the weight at the bottom motion), Hercules cable curls, and shit like that. I try to condition the forarm area and do the exercises that cause pain at a rep low enough to avoid pain...and hopefully one day have full use.
