View Full Version : Aching Forearms

I did a back workout last night at the gym and today my forearms are aching, it hurts to type.... (although it is not stopping me too much..) I know I could lift more, but my hands/forearms just can't hold the weight. Would it be worth my while to do some exercises to strengthen them? Any suggestions?

You could try grip work such as hex holds and plate pinches to strengthen your forearms.

I find that my forearms ache when I am squeezing the bejesus out of the bar - happens mostly when I up the weight.
