    Okay when I do curls, palms up and hammers my forearm hurts like a mug.

    [​IMG]

    Its right around #4. Feels more bone related. I dont believe its a muscle pain. It sorta feels like either the pain is originating where the muscle attaches to the bone or where the tendons attach there. Its about halfway up my forearm. I can do reverse curls with no problem at all. Its really bad sharp pain, mildly immobilizing and lasts about 15seconds after doing a set of curls and then basically goes away. I can press on the area right around where the muscle meets the bone and it hurts pretty bad, even if it doesnt hurt when Im relaxed it will hurt when pressed on.

    I do sometimes. I'll hold a straight bar palms up and raise and lower my hands. And do the same thing palms down. About 3 sets just doing about 15 or so reps basically until I cant do anymore. I havent done those exercises in probably 4 weeks though.

    That stuff is way too expensive for me. Besides, i dont know if its tendon/cartilage/joint related.

    Anyone possibly know where this pain could be originating from or what could be causing it? Maybe anyway to cure the pain?

    Well I have been living with it for weeks. Until recently it got so bad I absolutely couldnt even do curls I had to do all my sets as reverse to get my bicep workout. Worried the shit out of me because if I get injured to the point of not being able to workout I might end up killing myself.

    So I should take glucosamine for joint/cartilage issues and calcium for bone issues? Even though I dont even know where the problem is originating from.

    your bones and tendons were not given a chance to adapt. sounds like you aren't doing incremental poundages. before doing HST program, i had the same pain u are talking about, mostly because of jumping to higher poundage without giving tendons and bones time to adapt :hs:

    one of the reasons why deadlifts and squats are great exercises when done with incremental poundage progressing over a period of time is because the entire body adapts to heavy weight. after doing a year and a half of HST (hypertrophy specific training) i was able to reverse curl 100lbs 5 by 5 with none of the pain i previously experienced

    Well I've taken the whole week off. It'll be 8 days of rest before Im working out again. Is this the kind of adaptation you are talking about? Should I just let it rest? What exactly should I do to fix this?

    Oh, I've been doing HST for almost 2 years. I quit for a few months when I had a g/f doh. But Its been about 7 months since I started up again.

    I have the same exact problem. It only happens when I do curls with a bar and hurts in the same exact spot as in your diagram.

    There are other way to build up your arms. No need to get all butthurt about not being able to curl without pain.

    i had the same pain and it got so bad i could not pick up a shirt with my left arm. I went to a doctor and he could not tell me what was wrong.

    I stopped lifting for the last 3 months and the pain is finally gone. Gonna start lifting again next week, probably start with lower weights and more reps just to get used to it again and work my way back up.

    I personally think it had to do with starting to lift heavy weights pretty rigorously very quickly. I don't think my body was used to it and something in my arm gave as a result. I might be wrong, but it is all i can think of.
