    especially my right one. I think its the angle of my hand to my forearm as i come down to my head thats causing the pain. My gym has 2 ez bars that are easier on the wrist but they're usually being used so i use the straight barbells. How wide of a grip should i be using? shit hurts after 2 sets

    Shoulder width or slightly farther in. if a bb hurts your wrists, don't use it. wait for the ez or use db's.

    Dumb bells hurt me a lot more with that exercise than the straight bar.
