does anyone else get pains in the forearm area when doing preacher curls? I cant put on more then like 55lbs per side. If i do it feels like somethings gunna tear in my arm?? Has anyone done anything to fix this problem for themselves?

I have stress fractures up and down my forearm and it feels just like you describe... IF thats the case for you as well.. the only thing you can do is rest them, or they will NOT get better. Any excercise that hurts, you should refrain from doing. Even if you dont have the same problem I have, you still need to listen to your body when it cries out in pain. Do other excercises that dont hurt. Give it some time to heal. Mine has been like that a few months now, only thing I can do is dumbell curls. But it is slowly getting better.

BTW - mine hurts most upon releasing the bar... As soon as i let go and twist my hands back in to its normal position, i feel like my arm is gonna snap in half it hurts soo bad... if yours does this too, then i would guess you also have stress fractures.

I got someting called Golfers elbow from doing them - apparently according to the doc it is on the inner part of the elbow opposite to tennis elbow, caused by repetative stress on the point. Trust me I continued training with it and it does not get better as with anything let the area get better then start again with lighter weights to build it back up. That is the only way you will beat this sort of pain

Man I had that "nasty" feeling in mine too about 6 months ago. I call it nasty cause it felt like my bones were going to snap in half. I had this fear that was going to happen too. I laid off working heavy on the curls and went to light and started to use the rubber band things to make sure I got a comlpete workout. I started back up recently and they feel alot better.Don't know what is was but I think I let it heal in there.

Be careful with this I got it from lifting all the time too. Finally I had a partially torn tendon across my ulna.

didnt get to finish. I had the same exact pains you guys describe and got it looked at. its what theplayer was talking about. serious rest is what it takes to get over it. I got over it from being in a cast for 8 fucking weeks. BE SAFE!

I also had this problem. I went to an ortho and got just my right forearm X-rayed. Seemed I did have slight stress fractures. So when it felt like the bone, it was. Doc said avoid any exercise that irritates it (preachers) and take 1000MG Calcium a day for 3 months. He said to include 500MG magnesium as it stops the formation of kidney stones. (MANY calcium supps already have 1000mg cal 500mg mag) Also, include a few grams of boron as it will help the calcium absorption. It's not as scary as it sounds, and it really only takes a few month to heal up depending on your age, whether you smoke etc etc etc.

your probally either using too much weight and prying the bar up or you have weak forearms.

had similiar symptoms. Started with pain when I do bicep curls, then I had pain when I bench, then I had pain when I make a fist. Turns out I had tendonitis in both my forearms. I kept training through it all....eventually I couldn't even pick up a fork. So 7 months later, 50 pounds lighter, and 3 months worth of ART, I'm back to nowhere the same bodyweight.

As shitty as that sounds i would rather do that then get seriously hurt! Hey..since you guys seem to have the same problem i did do you guys recomend any other bicept exercises that would be ok for me to do??? Once again THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR INFO! my next step was a trip to the doctor.

I have the same problem, always have. Doesn't matter if I've got 1 25-plate on each side, or 3... it always hurts. Taking time off from doing preachers will only make you weaker in the preacher curls, once you return to the weights you were using before, the pain will return also. So, just deal with the pain.
