The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Forearm Pain...

    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...

    Preacher Curls:
    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.

    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!
