My wrist / carpal tunnel tends to get rather angry with me during exercises like dumbbell flies. (Presumably because the weight is supported by just the palms than a stacked forearm, and is under the most tension at the bottom of the movement, whereas with say an EZ bar curl the pressure goes away there.)
I’ve started noticing this happening in incline curls lately - my hand and fingers start feeling numb, which I understand is a signal I’m doing something I shoudln’t be. Wrist wraps seem to fix this just like they do with flies, but off the top of my head I don’t know if incline curls are meant to be a variant that also engages the forearm - it’d be silly to do a forearm exercise and then remove those muscles from the equation.
Is this the case and I should switch from incline curls to something else doing their job for the biceps, and a separate forearm exercise with a smaller weight? (Or a powerball I suppose.)
