    Whenever I'm doing my sets of dumbbell curls, by the end of my second and third sets I'll have a shooting sensation going down my forearm on my final reps. It doesn't neccessarily hurt, but it's the weirdest feeling in the world and it shocks my arm.

    I always focus on my form, but could I just be putting up too much weight?

    cliffs: weird shooting feeling in forearm during reps, maybe cutting off circulation, too much weight?

    I've asked around at the gym but it's just a bunch of highschoolers and they look at me like I'm crazy :o

    Some people say releasing your grip on the bar slower helps.

    Kind of, but sometimes if I relax my forearm for a few seconds (not a rest), I can finish the set no problem based on how weak my bi's are.

    Maybe I'm just gripping too tight :dunno:

    happened to me for a while, i quit doing direct bi work for about a month, maybe some hammer curls. hard back work should suffice.
