I''m perusing these pics of all you shirtless dudes and thinking: Man, you guys are way too hard on yourselves.

Residency making me fat, at least lifts staying up

I'm pretty sure I'm messing my nerves up as I've been weightlifting.

For instance I'll get shocks / jolts down my forearms when I'm getting to the last couple of reps while I do preacher curls.

They're not painful by any means but it's weird as fuck. The best explanation I can give is if you imagine your nerves as rubber bands wound down your forearm, it's as if someone is plucking at them and then the vibrations reverberate throughout the forearm. Only happens during the last couple reps when I'm eking them out.

I also use the cables to do single arm curls and my entire arm will get pins and needles as I do em.

Fucking weird man. I might have to get this checked out. It's really scaring me.

change your technique/do different exercises that don't give you them.

Some exercises just put you in a weird position. Do something else for a while.

It will probably resolve itself over time. Your muscle growth can clamp down on nerves at certain points, temporarily.

FWIW I never do preacher curls as they always feel weird on my wrists/forearms and elbows.

Sounds like tight pec/ anterior Delt trapping a nerve. Stretch pecs and front Delt and do more back exercises.

Try and find out if you can improve your form. This youtube guy is a good source for it since he works in physical therapy and goes into what different form is doing with your anatomy:

Thanks all for the pointers and suggestions. I have been seeing some good gains in my arms lately and I'm lifting progressively heavier weights, so best case scenario for me (though still kinda shitty) is that the muscle growth is in fact putting pressure on my nerves. Hopefully it's temporary.

Worst case scenario being that my form is so off that I'm twinging or pinching my nerves somehow... though I hope that's not the case. For example, I used to have poor form on bicep curls to the point where I would constantly flame up my tendonitis.. but I seem to have nailed my form now to the point where I don't have concerns of flaring it up anymore with the same exercises that exacerbated it in the past.

I'm also a side sleeper so I'm wondering if that may be bad for my shoulder joint and blocking blood flow. I've always had issues with circulation as my hands and feet get cold extremely easily in the winter.
post #57069 of 57262
The side -sleep stuff is probably over thinking.

I would just look for alternative exercises that hit the same muscles and/or reduce the frequency in which you do those exercises.

And yeah, make sure you're hitting a balance between push and pull, front delts rear delts etc.
post #57070 of 57262

Yup. I've had to change a few things I do because I get tightness and similar sensations as the GF in my wrists when I do things like face pulls and cable crunches. Just switch the exercises around, do other things, and do those specific lifts less frequently.

 

I went to the PT the other day and got a bunch of exercises to do. I have a bit of shoulder impingement, which isn't surprising. Going to work on it over the next bit so I can hopefully get back to the basics and start climbing again as well.

The best formula for beautiful and wanted weight with beautiful body shape is balanced diet and regular exercise. Eating a variety of food products without restriction and regular exercising of min 2 times a week, will give visible results after just one month. Find the best exercising program suitable for your health condition and body type and the results will be constant :)

If I hold my arm straight out 90 degrees to the side from the body, and then rotate it as much as I can clockwise so the elbow faces down, I get a painful pinching feeling at the back of the shoulder near the rear delt.

 

Anyone know anything about this?

So arm at side in line with the shoulder and palm facing up? Sounds RC related?

Depressed scapula, arm straight and parallell with the floor, arm rotated back at the shoulder joint so the palm and backside of the elbow faces up/almost back.
I should add here that I really need to rotate the arm as far as a can with quite a bit of strength before the pinching pain occurs.
post #57075 of 57262
Rotating internally or externally ?

Palm up can be achieved either way
