    Why do my forearms burn when I perform JM Presses?

    I tried to follow the advice from JM Blakely’s video on JM Presses and he says to “punch up” and point your fists up at the top of each rep. I also performed the exercise without wrist wraps because I found it is difficult for me to maintain proper hand position at the top using the wraps. I felt a nice pump in my triceps after each set but for some reason my forearms specifically the wrist extensors were burning as well after every set. Does anybody else experience a pump/burn in the forearms while JM Pressing?

    This is a really difficult exercise to maintain proper form, Jason Blaha (if you know who he is) has attempted JM presses during every upper body workout he does for the past few years and he still struggles with proper form. I feel JM Blakely is the only one that can do the exercise properly, which sucks because it is an excellent triceps mass/strength builder and there is excellent carryover to bench press strength

    Probably just letting your wrist flex/extend too much during the lift

    Did you literally do the exercise for the first time for one workout and have this burning?

    Or have you been doing it for years and still have difficulty maintaining proper form, and are still getting this burning?

    Heavier resistance on compound exercises will force the grip/contact area to be more worked. How heavy does it feel?

    You're probably holding the bar too high in the hands.

    Its going to be a little forearm intensive with wrist cocked doing the movement.
    It's a stronger position for your arms while doing these.
    If you leave them straight neutral you will have a tendency to use forearm to lockout.
    Doing them JM's way they are already in a "flexed"position.
    Ive done them this way and i really feel the triceps more.
    I guess you could use wrist wraps but then it wouldn't be JM style.
    Try lightening the weight and work on the technique.
    Maybe add some more forearm work in some type of wrist curls.
