So I had added Preacher curls back into my workout back in December. I had to give them up as my forearms would be in extreme pain after my sets and affect the rest of my workout. The pain went away after a day or so. I took the pain to mean my forearms couldn't hold the weight that I needed to curl. Is that a correct assumption? Thay don't hurt at all if I avoid preachers for that week. I don't see how I can mess the form up on Preachers as your in a very fixed position. I'm open to ideas. I did these all throughout college with great results.
I have since put in 2 excercises designed to strengthen my forearms to see if that helps...
Set 1 - 75x8 (warm up)
Set 2 - 95x8
Set 3 - 115x8
Set 4 - 125x6

Depends where on your forearm you are talking about, but I doubt it is because your forearm is too weak, generally when you are training your biceps, you are secondary training the forearm, so it will grow with your biceps. If it hurts closer to your elbow, you should think about tendonitis, happens when you lift too much, too often.
Sounds like that's it... bummer.
preacher curls broke my wrist
Don't pick on the weak, its immoral... Never antagonise the strong, its stupid
I used to get real bad forarm pain when I first started lifting at @14-16 i was over training and didn't even know it. At the time I didnt even know you could over train.
Your Forarms get very tight from Training, there are used in almost every exercise. You need to have neuromuscular massage therapy on them along with the rest of your body. this will help keep your muscle pushin hard and help keep you injury free. And last but not least, your strength will go up!
Ain't Nothin 2 It But 2 Do It!
