    Sore wrists after biceps curl

    Everytime when I do bicep curls my wrist are very sore (especially during and after last 2 sets). Should I stop doing bicep curls and maybe try dumbell curls or do my wrist just need some time to get used?

    Hands should be about shoulder width apart and its a bicep exercise, there should only be movement in the elbow, NOT in the wrist.

    basically, stop rolling your wrists, you will probably need to drop the weioght

    Is it a "worked" sore or an "injury" sore? The wrist flexors are working hard doing curls. If you've ignored your wrists in the past this may be why.

    I think it's not an injury. But it's quite painful...

    Thumbs up

    Try holding the bar or DB's with your wrists extended(the back side of your hand bent back towards your elbows). Keep that position throughout the range of motion for the curling motion. This will place more tension on your biceps & reduce the amount of forearm involvement.

    BTW you will have to decrease the amount of wieght (AKA: intensity/load) that you use.

    Are you using a straight bar or a EZ one?

    If you use the former, try curling with an E-Z bar. If you still feel pain, experiment with dumbells.

    If it still hurts, switch to preacher or incline curls. For example, the only bicep exercises that don't hurt my wrists at all are Incline dumbell curls and Concentration curls. Any other variation of free weight curls (even standing dumbell curls) feels somewhat uneasy on them.

    I wouldn't recommend trying to work through the pain.

    Stop using your forearms to lift the weight, adjust your angle when your curling and focus on your biceps pulling it

    what kind of pain we talking here?

    when I would do curls with the ez-curl bar, my wrists also hurt. it hurt when i let go of the bar after i finished my set, but not during the set. it was more of a joint pain than a muscle pain.

    so i started taking Animal Flex, and a little after i went on vacation so I took a break from lifting for a little longer than a week. now I don't feel the pain at all

    so, take a break from lifting and/or get some joint and tendon supplement

    Yeah that's it. It doesn't hurt so much when I'm doing set but when I finish it. Maybe is that because of Accutane which I'm taking. It might cause joint pains...

    It may be a grip issue so yeah, try dumbbells and see how it goes. Try going wider or narrower, or using those Ezcurls. It may just be you have weak wrists, the only solution is to allow them to strengthen. Sometimes they adapt slower.

    I don't think that's the best idea at all. Firstly by doing that, you move the weight closer to the lever, meaning it puts LESS tension on the biceps. It's also not the best thing for your wrists because if you do lose tension in your wrist flexors, then you're likely putting the strain on your wrist ligaments instead, especially at the top of the movement.
