Various Arm Curl/Bicep questions. Advice plz?
After doing barbell bicep curls a couple of days ago, I've found that the part of my arm in front of the elbow - ie where your forearm becomes your bicep - is quite sore yet my actual bicep doesn't feel too bad. When curling, I was really strict and felt a good burn in the biceps but as they feel fine now I might try and up the intensity a bit, on the other hand i don't want to do any damage to what I presume must be some tendons or something.
I finished with a set of reverse barbell curls and during the exercise, I felt it working my forearms and biceps together. Could this be to blame? How do reverse curls rate? Tips for strengthening the arms?
Thanks, I usually do individual concentration curls while seated on a swiss ball or bench but now I just can't be bothered changing the plates around so much and try and do most exercises with a barbell. I'll stick with bb curls and reverse curls from now on I think - the soreness is probably an indication I'm strengthening a weak link in my arm strentgh.
