    lactic acid??

    When I first starting working out, I would only get that bad burning sensation in my forearms when I did wrist curls but now that i've been lifting for a while now, I get it in a lot more places and alot more often...its pretty painful..am i doing something wrong or is that normal?

    um, i don't think that's lactic acid. its prolly tendonitis. take a little ibuprofen before doing curls, and see if it prevents it.

    Are you doing high reps? Do you get the same burning sensation if you increase the weight but lower reps? How long does the burning sensation last?

    tendonitis is very common when ppl do curls, which is what u said u get the pain. i am sure it is tendonitis, b/c lactic acid should not cause that much pain as u said it did (its more of a mild burning sensation)

    i get bad when i do wrist curls..but i think i do too many reps of that..i got it in my shoulder area when i was doing my shoulder work out, it can get pretty intense the burning sensation and when i do push ups i'll get it sometimes and when i do barbell curls i get it in my bicep area...i think i'll lower my reps and do heavier weight?..i do pretty 8-10 reps and 3 sets for most exercises..and i increase the weight with bench and barbell curls and then i'll lower my reps to 6 then 4 for my last set
