My forearms always hurt when I do barbell curls with an Olympic barbell. If you're doing them with an Olympic barbell (45lbs), then try doing them with an E-Z bar.

My pain has slowly gone away as I have been working out. I went to an all bis during back workout, I never do any type of curls anymore.... Im doing this until Im completely better then Ill try substituting some curls back in once a week. My bis get plent of work from rows, so, you shouldnt have to worry they get worked plenty on your back day.

Look up the sleeper stretch for your shoulder, you can also do with with bungees at your gym. and I take black cherry juice concentrate in the mornins as a supp and it has done wonders with joint pains esp elbow and shoulder.... but yea Im healin good same to you! Ive had shoulder problems a whileee

Well most of the pain has gone away atleast when I ez bar curl with a wide grip with a narrow grip I find I'm more likely to get the pain. I start off rapping the bar with a towel to thicken it, then I put 10 pounds less on the bar then what I'm supposed to be curling and I do one whole set with that weight and then add 10 pounds and do my regular sets. Is it better to be standing when you curl or curling at a preacher station? My biceps haven't grown much at all in the past 3 months. I'm curls 50Lbs on each arm, so I'm curling 100Lbs with the ez bar, but my biceps are still around 13" unflexed. Flexed they're about 15". I hope they grow soon I want big arms, but my biceps don't seem to grow much.

dang my arms are the same* but i still seem them growing a hair every week.....i do concentrated slow preachers and flex at the top and just a standard curl on a incline...i hold 1 arm up and flex it and do a rep with the other arm...then hold that arm in a flex and do a rep with the other arm< then some medium paced hammer curls but i dont flex on those...seems to be working for me i am noticing more of a peak

I had the same problem. It ended up being tendinitis. An anti inflamitary( cissus) and wrist wraps helped me. It acts up still from time to time. Fish oil also helped a lot. I don't know that your situation is tendinitis just thats what I had with similar symptoms.

Like CountryLiftin said try the sleeper stretch! If your after stimulating growth, nothing is gonna work like bb curls...cambered bar curls dont hit all heads of the bicep as well. Fish oil is your friend!! and make sure you get plenty of rest and food. How many days a week do you lift if i may?

Mine is still there. It has flair ups from time to time. I've learnt to deal with it. When it hurts extra cissus and fish oil really help. Along with occasional icy hot.

I think db curls would be great. Many people have some sort of "handicap" when lifting in terms of aches and pains. Just find what works for you and be as pain free as can be. If the cambered curls work for ya, then stick with em! I think some tend to over think it and its not necessary. These are just my opinions by the way. What worked for the last man might not work for you. Trial and error.
