    When curling, it feels like my bone is going to break!

    When I do curls (usually the worst on standing preacher curl with barbell) it feels like my forearm bone is going to snap or some shit. I have very strong bones, never had a broken one <<knocks on wood>>. I don't believe it's my form. Anyone else experience this??

    be careful with that, i got stress fractures in my arm (humurus) spelling** from doing bench and military, dont let it get so bad that you cant lift up your sheets in the morning.

    Your going too heavy by the sounds of things. In my younger days I was guilty of the same thing. I have found that my biceps respond much better to moderate weight and high reps (ie 10-12 reps) twice a week than a heavy (6-8 reps) once a week.

    Thanks for the advice. You are probably right Bouncer, for the weight that I do, my bi's should be much bigger...should I lower the weight and just focus on more reps???? I want to bulk up, is this the best idea for that??

    I thought for mass it's "high weight low reps" asnd cutting/strength is "high reps low weight"????

    Big Rush,
    it sounds like you are gripping the bar to hard. i use to get the same thing, but when i loosened up my grip it got a better.
    Also, your correct on the mass, muscle mass gets bigger from lifting heavy weight and lower reps.
