    Been working out for about 3-4 months now and I have started to see significant progress.

    Lately I have been getting this intense pain in my left forearm (only the left). Its mainly when I do biceps - the pain occurs right after I release and put the free weights down. This is seriously hampering my workouts and as usual the left is trying to catch up with the right.

    Anyone know what this is? It feels like its in the bone almost... cant describe it exactly... maybe my bones need to catch up with my muscle to support all the weight?

    seriously though, its every type of bicep exercise and sometimes back, even the cable curls.

    A friend of mine suggested wrapping the forearm in tensor...

    I have this as well, I got some help on here one other time about it. Only thing that really helped me is to do dumbbell curls.

    Trying to curl a barbell fucked my forearm up good for a while. Do hammer curls for a while.

    trust me, only do single arm biceps exercises and the pain will alleviate

    pain could be generating from wrist..make sure your form is correct

    do some wrist extension/flexions/supination/pronation exercises with some free-weights for a bit and see if the pain diminishes or changes
