    does the bone in your forearm feel like its going to snap after working your bi's?

    Lately the bone in my left forearm feels like it's going to snap when I work on my biceps. It also happens if I am just picking up a weight.

    Has anyone had this happen? If so, how did you get rid of it?

    Hmm that can't be good never happened to me. I felt like my arms were going to explode today when I worked out, like the muscles were going to literally rip my skin open. But bone...nope never.

    Actually I got my right wrist fractured maybe 2 months ago.

    I recently tried to go the preacher curls at 50 lbs (not a problem regularly) and my wrist felt like it was going to snap.

    You may have some minor bone damage. Rest, drink milk and lighten up on it. I don't train my biceps right now and I don't want to rush it back without healing first or else I'll be out even longer.

    I drink a atleast 4 glasses a day.

    My friend said that it happened to him, and the way he fixed it was dropping down in weight but doing slower reps. I tried that, but it just didn't feel like it was working well enough.

    The problem is I am still doing an OVT cycle.

    And to my knowledge, I have never broken my wrist, or fractured it, or anything.

    are u talking about the sharp feeling of pain in your forearms when doing preacher curls?

    it's kind of like shin splints.. but in your forearms..


    if that's the case.. then somebody suggested curling your wrists at the top of the curl.

    I have never had shin splits, but yea it is a sharp feeling.

    So you suggest to curl the wrist when I bring the bar up? I'll give it a try, whats the reasoning behind it?

    Yep

    Yep, I used to get that alot, its from strain on the bone, not being a doctor I can neither tell you thats its safe or all that bad, I literally could feel the pressure on my bones as I was curling, it just went away, so I don't know if that helps you or not, I wouldn't fret about it, I think its pretty hard to break a bone by sheer weight pressure.

    I've given this advice often. It's an injury from poor form. Take a week off, rest up, then when you come back, make sure you curl your wrist on all curls. I had the same problem, so bad it damned near brought tears to my eyes, and this aleviated it.

    When I was carrying a less muscel this would happen to me - typically it happens to skinny guys with small bones - the weight being curled just strains the forearm..
    If it hurts - STOP IT.. your body it is trying to tell you something.

    Drop the wieght - build your strength up (GRADUALLY) and return to the curl movement building up your poundage progressively.

    I used to get that all the time, and occasionally still do, right on the outside of the forearm whenever I did any type of curls. I really wanted to cry after finishing a lot of my back or bicep work, but I finally discovered that either taping the wrist to provide support or using gloves with wrist wraps (same effect as the tape) lessened and eventually got rid of the pain.
