    I'm sure I'm not the only one to experience this.

    Any tips on how to alleviate the pain, or prevent it entirely? What should I work on to prevent this from happening?

    my forearm splint issues all came from performing underhand movements such as BB curls, chin ups, etc. I switched to more hammer curls and wide grip pulls and the pain went away.

    I only curl with db and the curved barbells. Should I just not do them completely and stick with db?

    do you do any wrist curls?

    do you do all your pressing with your knuckles pointing up or do you let your wrist take it?

    do you type on your computer too much?

    I don't do any wrist curls.

    All of my presses, flat, incline, decline, db presses, military, etc are with my knuckles straight up, never on my wrists alone, I'd break em.

    I work 9-5 on a computer, and use the computer for a few hours at home :(

    This

    Tennis elbow, tendinitis, etc. is generally caused by putting too much stress on muscles and tendons before they are strong enough to handle it. Combine this with different muscles growing at different rates and you get inflamation and pain.

    The only real cure is time. Do some curls and wrist movements with your palms down to work the opposite side of your forearms. After that maybe take your intensity down on movements that hurt more. Over time you should get stronger and it should hurt less. Otherwise ibuprofen ftw.

    I tend to stretch a lot at work for this reason.

    I was just worried since it felt like pain in the bone from stress of the weight, before I did some additional reading on the matter.

    Avoid resting on your elbows when you're sitting at your desk, if you do that already.

    I've got carpal tunnel and my forearms are usually pretty sore from everything. I've upped my grip/wrist work and the pain is slowly going away. It comes back pretty bad from time to time, I just keep my wrist wraps handy and use them as needed.

    I suppose, but if my forearms are strengthened, wouldn't that give me less strain on the parts that are hurting?
