Palm hurts alot while working out...
 
My problem is the area below my thumb ( the area right before the start of your thumb )

It just keeps getting worse as I workout more.

When I do workouts that put weight on that area, it hurts so much I just gotta drop the weights.

It mainly hurts when I do curls and bench... has anyone ever had an injury in that area?

What is that area called?

Should I go to the doctors for this?

i get the same thing when im doing heavy curls on a preacher bench. i just rub the area between sets and it helps out a little bit. one time i think i saw gloves online that actually hold the bar in place but i think thats mostly for pressing motions not just for keeping the bar in place, make sure your doing the movements right to (your placing the bar correctly and keeping your wrist in the proper area not bent back) or it could be maybe me and u are just to hardcore and the human body isnt designed for people like us jk

Yeah if it hurts you that bad try taking a week off. Usually if I have an injury that bad, after some time off it's all better. Another thing to do is get some weightlifting gloves so that area gets padded. If you don't want to spend the money, use two sponges. It'll pad the area and still give you more freedom to move.

I'd make sure you aren't putting all the stress of the bar in that area. Make sure you are distributing the pressure across your hand. When benching try putting the bar more towards the heel of your hand instead of rolled back where you put stress on your wrist.

How about telling us how you are gripping the bar?

I am afraid that I would fail horribly if I switch hands :D

just another reply
 
I have the same problem with the ball of my left foot. sometimes it feels broken and stiff when i walk then at other times it's fine. think it's a pinched nerve or something hopefully not a stress fracture. i take a week off and it feels better. just give yourself some time to heel. i know injuries and getting sick are the biggest frustration when it comes to lifting but its better than injuring yourself worst. if it continues go see a doc.
