    Wrist Pain

    i get pains in my wrist whenever i do too much bicep curls or bar curls. and this pain will stop me from training biceps for weeks at time.....

    i am wondering what is causing this..... and if there is anything i can do to fix this?

    are you using straight bar or easy curl bar? I have that problem when i use the easy curl bar.

    I try and keep most of my exercices just using dumbells. Try some of the machines, they might aid you for a while.

    Do you keep your wrists straight or do you let them bend?

    hrmm.. maybe it is the straight bar that is doing it because you said only sometimes using an ezcurl, observe the way you are curling and you might find the answer.

    I think you have a problem with form.

    i have had great problems with my wrists... does it hurt when you train or afterwards? when you bench, or any other presses, does it hurt then? does it hurt only when you train? is it in your muscles or in the bone structure of the hand the pain comes from??

    i asked about this the other day, i went to the doctors with the problem the doctor said i had enflamed the tendons or summat, and told me to rest them and then experiment how i hold things and lift with my arm instead of my wrist and try to keep my wrist straight and not bend it.

    i had this problem too, especially with heavy weights. Try only using weights that you are comfortable with. Or cut out curls of anykind out of your routine and replace with other pulling motions. Try weighted close grip pullups. I think they target the bics pretty good and weighted on should give the bics a good punishing and little stress on the wrists.

    I had what seems to be the same problem.. except I had pain in my lower forearm whenever I would release heavy weights or do bicep curls. In the end, I believe I was overtraining. I just gave em a rest and now I am doing fine..
