Default Newb, what am I doing wrong?

Hello,

I've been lifting since March of this year and recently (Aug) stated training alone. This week my forearms started hurting towards the outside of my arm closer to the bone any time I do a curl of any sort. Do I need to strengthen my forearms to make it stop? I've been getting into heaver weights and think that possibly my forearms arent as developed as the rest of my arms. Hope I don't sound too incompetent but let me know what you think.

I have the same exact problem when I go big on curls. I haven't got hurt yet so I ignore it. However, it does seem risky. See a doc if you are nervous about it and let me know what it is lol.

Have you tried curls on an ez curl bar? I'm thinking that wrist position may be less painful for you. Try sticking with EZ curl bars and dumbbells--curling with a straight bar can kind of put your wrists in an awkward position.

If you keep having problems you may want to get checked out and see if there's some tendonitis or something.

I was just going to say it's more likely a wrist position problem. IMO

Kevsworld beats me to the punch... again. lol

I can't speak for him but I have the same prob with dumbbells and an EZ curl bar. It is only when I go real big though. Anything under close to 1RM is fine with no pain at all...

There is really no point in doing a 1RM for curls IMO.

I'll give it a shot on Monday. I'm giving it a rest until next week to see where it goes from here. Thanks

I know lol which is why I don't really worry about the pain. I don't feel it all the time. Just when I get close to maxing out, which is rare

Try seated dumbell concentration curls. Had the same sort of problem doing barbell curls when i started bodybuilding. Hope it helps.

Any additional input for MY BLOG would be welcome
