    Do some wrist curls or use other bicep exercises - hammer curls and alternate dumbell curls will impact on your wrists less.

    Well I wouldn't do prechers with a BB - its just too damn uncomfortable for me - personally I like to use DBs.

    curls are great with a BB but they really do hit you grip and forearms hard - which is why I like them. Don't be tempted to give them up, or use wrist wraps - keep it up and they'll improve in time.

    I also do them this way as i dont get the pain in my Forearm with DBs.

    doing them on an ez bar IMO forces your elbows out wide, moving a lot of the focus from the bicep and onto the forearms I still think DBs are your best bet.

    Not sure how an e-z bar makes your elbows forced wide?If your arms are on a preacher bench they in a fixed position surely.I have heard that an e-z bar works your brachialis hard(not sure if correct spelling,the outer bit of the bicep).

    LOL - I just tried to exaplin why and then I read what I had written and it made no sense. Try again, as the back of your arms are flat on the pad and your hands are in a sort of half hammer grip (atleast how I do them) your elbows are wider than your hands and the forearms twists. Make sense?

    Cheers! Will give the Db's a go. Wrists feel ok today, just a little DOMS. Biceps dont feel as hit as i'd like from using barbel. Damn my skinny wrists!!
