    So lately I focused on improving my curl. I managed to get to 1 plate for reps (not in the squat rack I'm not a douche, took the bar to the curl rack), but after I let go of the bar I feel like my left forearm will snap off or some sh**! It hurts and burns like crazy. Is this sign of an injury? It doesn't feel like a pump, bad pain for sure

    Where does the pain go to?
    Is it medial side of elbow? Or what...

    It's not in the elbow. It's the forearm bone or something. It's like this pic, excluding the elbow. Only hurts when I let go of the bar at the end of the set.

    It's similar to tennis elbow or tendonitis, I used to get it as well from doing preacher curls. I basically just stopped doing them for a while and used dumbbells instead. Look up some forearm/wrist/bicep stretches on YouTube

    If you felt or heard a breaking sound then you've definitely broken something in you. See a doctor

    It's not that extreme. Never heard any breaking nor felt it. Just really bad inflamation of the foream only. Refer to the picture I posted above in this thread, but ignore the elbow part, my elbow is fine

    Not a physio and never had the injury so can't really help.

    I suggest avoiding the exercise or reducing the weight used and focus on forearm exercises to fix any imbalance.

    Stretch out your wrists too. See a physio if it persists

    Tbh my forearms are tiny compared to everything else. Grip ain't that strong either. I think it's just genetics. But I'll try isolate them more with lighter weights and also avoid heavy barbell curling for a while. Thank you

    doesn't sound too good dude, lighten the load or have a longer rest days

    If you keep going on like that ...eventually you'll damage something

    I had this problem when I first started working out, most likely a cause of tendonitis. Only way to remove it is to stop bicep training for a while and as some others have said, light weights. Also, I have and sometimes do curl around the squat rack.
