    Been getting this more often lately.
    Any suggestions to alleviate it?
    Usually do stretches for the forearm flexors and extensors.

    Tried to go to bed after coming home from the gym and was up in 10 minutes, because of forearms cramping up. I had to forcibly straighten my arm. Even still visibly pulsing at this moment.

    By the way doesn't help that today I did...

    15 sets of 7 reps of wide grip pullups.
    Followed by 5 sets of 6 reps of neutral grip pullups.
    And 3 sets of 5 reps with chinups. All with a minute rest between sets. For a total of 150 reps. Bodyweight only though. And then the rest of my upper body workout. Including 5 more sets of direct bicep work.

    More liquid, maybe some creatine.

    is the cramping more in your forearms by the elbow or closer to the hand.

    Im not to sure what might help if it is closer to the elbow but I would try contrast baths with your hands and lower forearms if you can. Get cold cold water and some hot water and switch between the 2 every few minutes.

    If your hands are bent 90% and by your side, and palm is facing in, its near the outside part of the forearms close to the biceps. Not sure if that'd be the brachooaradialis or not.

    Thanks though, Grouch.

    No idea... it's when I flex my bicep, or just twist my hand the wrong way
