    i used to get this all the time too. i switched to reverse grip curls with the e-z bar, and DB hammer curls and i've had no pain since. there's been quite a few posts on here regarding forearm pain with curls so it must be quire a common problem. try switching to reverse grip or hammer curls and see if this makes a difference.

    I get the same thing! It's really quite annoying, having to endure the pain as well as trying to lift the weight! Doesn't just hurt when I let go though, also when I'm doing the set. I think someone said it was tendonitis or something.

    I had that too, never got over it!

    It was much better on EZ rather than a BB though. ALso keep elbows tucked right in tight to your sides.

    Also better if you use a preacher bench

    Failing that, stick with strict DB curls

    I had the same problem until I stopped using the EZ curl bar entirely, then the problem went away.

    OK guys, I have had this problem a few times. For those of you that have had this problem, have you spotted someone who needed quite abit of help a few days before the problem occured?

    My problem was due to the fact that I spotted a guy on seated shoulder press and I was kinda doing the bicep curl movement to help him but it was awkward (because it wasn't a bicep curl, if you know what i mean?). found that awkward movements like this (when helping alot!) triggers splints down the forarms.

    The EZ bar is one of my favorite mass building excersizes (especially for bi's) and did not want to give it up. Just take it easy for a week or so, abit of ibuprofen and give bi's & tri's a miss for a week or two. This has help me over come this problem a great deal!

    Bench - 130kg
    Squat - 160kg
    Dead - 200kg
    Leg press - 310kg
    Age - 26
    Weight - 75kg
    Height - 5ft 9

    I had this a few years ago and it got so bad I had trouble with any exercise which required a palms up (or down when doing tricep push down)grip. Think it is something to do with straining the tendons. The first thing I did was switch grip to neutral on as many things as I could e.g. used closegrip attachment for pull downs, switched to the rope handle for cable curls and tricep push down, turned dumbells into hammer curl position too. I also switched to the EZ bar and have never used a straight bar, apart from bench/shoulder press for upper body since.

    Once the pain eased I brought back barbell curls with the ez bar but for a tiny weight, lots of reps. After about 6 months everything recovered and have been able to curl heavy barbells (EZ), dumbells no probs. If it ever feels like it's coming back just lighten up and change grip again.
