Aye carumba - I'm supposed to do 2 sets of 15 on day 3, but by about 12 it is painfull, right here (this is obviously not a picture of me, or of the incline hammer curl).

Frig - now I can't get the pic to post. It hurts on the inside of my elbow joint. I'll try the picture again.

Those are concentration curls.

Hi, reading!

Hmm - should have known that picture would cause trouble.

Anyway, should I decrease the weight, stretch, suck it up? :confused:

I did read it. And I still don't understand why the OP posted a pic of concentration curls.

Both arms?

The blue dot is supposed to show where my arm hurts when I am doing the exercise... maybe you can't see the dot?

Yes, both arms.

I think she's just using that pic to landmark where her arm hurts after doing incline curls.

Is this a new exercise for you? If yes, then I relate, when I first started doing incline curls that's where it would hit me most...the whole bicep would be sore but yes, moreso in the elbow for me. They don't bother me anymore. It'll stop, I wouldn't worry about it. :)

Thanks DeeDee - it's definately new to me, and feels quite awkward. :baby:

I did those yesterday and my arms still hurt, but did not have localized pain during the exercise.

I do get more pain from these than other bicep exercises, but it's not localized. What is your incline on the bench? I had to adjust mine when I started.

Then you should try prone incline hammer curls. :baby:

I'm pretty sure I'd still hate them myself. These have got to be about my least favorite thing to do. :suicide:

I don't even know what those are but if I can only lift 8's for the regular ones then I'd probably have to lift 5's for those and I refuse to use the girly dumbbells. :suicide:

I only use the 8's too. Maybe that's why I hate them. Thank goodness we do have the 8 lb in black.

They're done lying face down on the bench.

I do them like this:

except keeping the arm in thr hammer curl position instead of rotating back to the palm-facing-up position.

Is that totally wrong?

Stop the alternating and do both arms at the same time.

Great - now both my arms will feel like they are getting ripped off at the same time.

Okay, thanks. I was thinking, "geez, I&#39;m an idiot... I&#39;ve been doing them wring all this time&#33;"

I don&#39;t dislike any exercise that involves sitting or laying on a bench. :p (who me, lazy?)

It&#39;s unilateral leg work that gets me whining. :baby: ;)

Oh okay, but if there was...that would be it. Probably b/c we can&#39;t do as much weight on that one as others :oops:

Biceps are the worst...I&#39;d totally rather pull until I&#39;ve popped blood vessels in both of my eyes.

I hate biceps, too. But not as much as I hate triceps&#33; Actually, I seem to dislike isolation work in general.

Oh yeah, I kicked some major bicep ass tonight with those 8 lb db doing the hammer curls. :lol: I don&#39;t think I will ever like this exercise. :suicide:

Angelkae

And why are they so much more difficult on the incline bench? Standing, I can do hammer curls with 15 pound db&#39;s, but on the bench I have to use 10&#39;s, and they are still difficult.

because they bring into play more of the brachioradialis which runs into the forearm. (maybe your forearms are weak?) The only reason I know this is because my forearm was ripped open not long ago and since I was given the green light to lift again incline bicep curls can literally make me cry :bawling:

Why would doing them seated bring in the brachoioradialis more?

LOL - oh yah, that&#39;s what I&#39;m up to tonight, kicking major bicep ass.

For me I think it&#39;s the fact that my arm is stretched further back that makes it more difficult than a regular bicep curl - streeeetttchhhhing my brachio-whatsamahoosits more. :cool:

No

It&#39;s a function of the pronation.

I don&#39;t know :confused: :scratch: the grip, the pronation??? all I know is that&#39;s the muscle the dr. said was damaged and incline curls are now the most excruciating exercise. I can do standing curls though and they don&#39;t hurt nearly as much.
