I stopped getting gains and got pain in my forearms so I dropped weight training altogether for a week. When I started again I had a whole new routine AND started keeping a log to track my progress and make sure I stuck to it.

Well I'm entering my third week with my new routine. Just a few minutes ago, just to satisfy my curiosity, I did some curls...

AND...


No pain or discomfort in my forearms at all.

What I'm wondering is exactly what I can do to tell how my arms are doing, so that I can start working them out again. And if I do, how to help prevent injuries for reocuring. (Outside of stretching.)

When you do start curling again try using dumbbells instead of a barbell. Also, you may want to stick to relatively high reps for biceps (ex: 10-12), and of course always use good form.
