Pain in middle of forearm while doing bicep exercise. What could be this?

when doing bicep exercises such as preacher curls or barbell curls is the Flexor Carpi Ulnaris, and it hurts usually right in the very middle of the forearm. I basically cannot do barbell curls at all - my left forearm (and it's never my right) just can't handle it. The only exercise that I can really pack the weight on for biceps is the hammer curl

Dear Sir

What you are describing is the anterior interosseus nerve syndrome where part of the median nerve is compressed by the flexor digitorum superficilis tendon.

There are several ways to treat
1. Massage
2. exercise modification
3. Surgery

try to extend the wrist while curling, this also works. (I know because I have this problem )

Take care
