    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Tingling forearm

    I've a question. Lately, I've been trying Randy Couture's circuit training with 20 lbs dumbbells.

    YouTube - Ex UFC heavyweight champ Randy Couture weight training

    The first thing that goes out is my forearms during the second set, so I take a 10 second break before picking them back up to complete the set. Near the last set, I notice tingling in my left forearm on the radius side when I lower the weights. Thursday was the last day I did it. When I go to bench 55 lbs in each hand, I notice the tingling when putting the weight down on Saturday. Tonight on Monday, the tingling happens when I'm curling with the 20 lbs.

    Does anyone know what's going on? A pinched nerve, maybe? Should I take a break from weight training? Thanks.

    Could be pinched never (thoracic outlet syndrome) or something similar to that. Or it could simply be that your internal shoulder rotators are very inflexible, causing you to have problems in putting the bar behind your neck (this is very common.)

    Have you ever had a neck/trap/shoulder accident? How's your flexibility at the shoulders?

    Actually, I'm using dumbbells. The tingling is on my forearm between my elbow and my thumb.

    Look up tendinitis and see if the symptoms match what you're describing.

    Uh, how are you doing a behind-the-neck exercise with the dumbbells? You can't make a reference to Randy's workout if you are using a different equipment. The reason of this is that there is no way in hell for us over the internet to know what on earth you are doing.

    Also, you need to be more descriptive - this is a rule and requirement for posting in this forum.

    Is the tingling on the outside of the arm (that is, running from the elbow down the back of your forearm to your thumb)? Or is it, from the elbow, turning around and down the inside of your forearm down to the base of the thumb?

    Also, when exactly is it that you are experiencing the tingling? What is the exact exercise after which you experience the discomfort?

    Details man, details. It would also help if you provide some stats about you: height, weight, age, gender, any past/present injuries on the hands, forearms, etc.

    How about my second question: how's your shoulder flexibility?

    Also, what Skillful said, could be some form of tendinitis... which leads me to another question. Is the tingling just that, a tingling, or is it accompanied by pain?

    Sorry for the vagueness. Doesn't seem to match tendonitis. There is no pain. Just weird tingling.

    My shoulder flexibility is ok, I think. I have trouble scratching my back at times, so maybe too stiff?

    As stated in my first post, the tingling is on the radius side, which is the thumb side. It runs between the thumb to the elbow. Left arm only. Since I lack a barbell, I use dumbbells. I guess that would really change things up. The tingling kicks in when I lower the dumbbell. I'm male, 5'4", a fat 165 lbs, 23 years old, and have no injuries.

    My friends suggest I simply rest.

    Is the tingling in your forearm and fingers, or just the forearm? Is it constant or does it only occur periodically in certain positions? Gradual or sudden onset?

    I started the week before last. The tingling began on last Thursday. When I was benching on Saturday, the tingling didn't happen until I slowly put down the 55 lbs. Today, I felt it as I lowered the 20 lbs while curling, so I stopped.
