Dedication is key
Are you bending your wrists back when you curl?
Try to conciously keep your wrists curled up towards you as you curl, I've found that this has helped. Also, if you're using a straight bar, maybe switch up to an Ezy Curl Bar, it's so much easier on the wrists.
Life's too short to be small
when i use the easy bar, palms up, for curls and heavy weights i notice that either the muscle or bone itself i believe it would be the ulnar begins to hurt towards the wrist up to the elbow. i have to slowly release the weights. i hate it. but i have pains on the straight bar.
when i force a rep ... i get mad pains on an area near my wrists.

Is it best to grip the curl bar in the inner handle part or the outer part...
I get pains in my wrist from time to time doing any kinda curling, whether it b ezbar wide/narrow, db, bb, machine, u name it.
IMHO the wrist is pretty delicate, kinda like your ankle...until your tendons/ligaments/joints strengthen up don't force heavy weights on them...concentrate on good form and getting a solid contraction with manageable weights

i know EXACTLY WUT UR FEELING MAN.Originally Posted by Jfresh
when you finish the set... you have to SLOWLY release your grip on the bar, so that it doesn't hurt all at once, right?
it feels like a shock going through your forearms/wrists when you release the bar..
i hate that..
i think like people said.. if u curl your wrists upwards during the set, it will be better..
but yeah, during preacher curls and standing curls, my wrists feel like they're going to snap, and my forearms have a shooting pain going through it.
I don't know what you're experiencing, but your wrist should always stay in the same position throughout the curl - straight. If it curls in anyway, start working out your forearms because it's too weak.
1) Use DBs.
2) Stop curling if pain continues. There are plenty of bicep workouts that do not involve curling.
3) Use a neutral/hammer grip.
thanks for the replys i try to keep my wrist striaght the entire time. My forearms are plenty strong there pretty big actually not to bad for a 160 pound guy.
