    Forearm Pain

    I've been getting some serious pains in the forearms recently, the day after lifting. I assumed it was because it wasnt stretching well enough.. any suggestions? Maybe its from something else or do you guys have any better suggestions on stretching my forearms

    Could be too many curls or you are still relatively new to lifting. Either way you are definitely doing too much.

    I guess im still relatively new. I worked out for like 4 months, then had knee surgery and took a while off. now ive been back in the gym for probably 3 months. So, you think i should just cut down on the number of curls?

    and the pain is on the outside

    Just a generic question I've been wondering about: is it better to power through a work out if your body's still sore from the previous work out, or give yourself an extra day's rest? (assuming you're lifting the same body part that day..)

    The body needs time to heal and recover. I'd give it a days rest or so.

    Depends on what you want to build. For power you need to rest.

    I figured, but for the longest time now I feel like after every damn leg work out, I’m sore for 2-3 days. This poses a problem cause I’m running an upper-lower split. Ideally I’ll hit this 4x per week, but more often it is only 3.

    This week I went Mon – lower, Tues – upper, Thurs – lower, Fri – upper.

    I’ve been doing legs pretty consistently now for 2-3 months, so you would think my body would start to adjust, but I was walking like I sat on a dildo all night yesterday. I still powered through my leg work out (which I guess maybe I shouldn’t of done), but still struggling to see why I get so sore (I know some of it has to do with the xmas break, but it was still happening prior).

    My upper isn’t nearly as bad, usually don’t have any issues.

    can you post some of your workouts? Are you getting enough sleep?

    Basically just been following Lyle McDonald's bulking routine : http://www.jcdfitness.com/2009/01/ly...lking-routine/

    On my off day(s) may throw in some cardio/body weight lifts. And I typically get around 7 hours of sleep during the week, so I'd say yes.

    Take Some stretch, Do Some Warm ups, Some kind of jogging or jumping is also good.

    You should be getting 2-3 days of rest anyways. If it's not working out then change your split or stretch pre and post workout.
