definitely get some ant inflammatory meds.

ever though about getting an xray? it seems like it hurts because of the obvious wrist positioning while curling. might be a stress fracture or something.

ill be back in a little with a new workout

I've never heard of tendinitis in the forearm. Usually elbow or knees

I was thinking it could be a stress fracture, but after doing some research and comparing the pain to my previous diagnosis with tendonitis I don't think it is.

I will take anti-inflammatory and keep steady at a low weight and build up until I'm not experiencing anymore pain. I will hopefully see a doctor once I get my new insurance card.

I would go to the doctor. When I hurt my back it had the exact same symptoms as a herniated l5 s1 disc. Got a MRI and it was just a pulled muscle that healed the week after my
MRI.

If I had insurance at the moment, I'd be at the doctor 3 weeks ago.

Any shot of getting this thing healed quicker (and getting percs) is something I'd be right on top of otherwise.

I'm just glad its in my forearm and not my shoulder or elbow... literally the only thing I can't do is BB curl.

The supinated grip is definitely what does it... its odd because I can reverse curl without causing the pain upon unloading... but the regular curl kills me when i go above 65lbs the second I unload the weight.

I can curl in any position with DB's absolutely fine... standing, sitting, inclined: hammer, preacher, ect.

Its fvcking frustrating. My arms are 16" cold and they are only getting bigger, which I'm thankful for. It just makes me feel sh1tty when I'm not curling 100lbs like I used to. Pull ups are doing the job for now.

that sh1t infuriates me to no end... i give them a stern tap on the shoulder and say, 'i'm still on here. you can work in with me, though.'

usually they say my bad and walk away

post your workout, figured we could all help each other reach our goals.

todays workout. a dirty 30 (30:30) 30s on and 30s off. 6 exercises, 4 revolutions= 24 minute workout. its a high intensity workout, heavy lifting would kill you. moderate is just right. for the stuff with no weight, i tried to make it as complicated as possible. first couple sets i did plyo's and touched my hips, after i went to touching the back of my head. DB swing is the same as a kettlebell swing, but since i dont have a kb, it works. great for forearms too. used the same 115 DB for the goblet squats and swings. that stack of plates is for the close grip push ups. basically had to do them until failure.

great option for people that dont have the time to workout. i essentially do these 2-3 times a week, i will be posting another probably thursday

- hang cleans
- DB swing
- plyo pushups
- CG push ups
- split squat jumps
- goblet squats

Is that the 24hour Fitness in Lancaster, CA?
