    Normal To Have Tingling?

    Sometimes when im doing pull ups or lifting weights i get this tingling sensation in my arms kinda like a shocking feeling. does this mean im doing the workout wrong or putting to much stress on the muscle?

    You're lifting too heavy a weight. You're basically tearing muscles and tendons too much, too quickly. I suggest stepping it down a notch, so you'll be able to adapt without as much unwanted stress on undeveloped tendons.

    Do you do stretches before and after exercises? You are over-straining muscles without actually giving them a cool down phase. Something you don't want to do when starting out, or lifting heavy weights, low reps.

    Take it easy, and work at it. After a while you should gain more strength, and you'll cope without any tingling sensation.

    I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination. So maybe somebody else can correct or add to what I've said.

    you are going to have to be more descriptive. tingling and shocking are kind of vague.
    Squat: 465
    Bench: 355
    Dead: 585
    Press: 235

    It could be caused by improper form on exercises done before that. Like supporting the bar the bar with your arms during squat etc..

    I think I know what feeling you're talking about. I get it sometimes It might have something to do with grip. I usually get it when working back. Could be tendons that lift too much weight too quickly (not warmed up).
    I ALWAYS rep back. srs. Just add "rep back" to your comment.

    I used to get a shocking feeling in my forearms doing preacher curls.

    I'm thinking it was my grip or poor forearm strength. I haven't gotten them in awhile though since I started lifting seriously
