YOu are probably using too much weight...of course it is going to be a little soar just means the muscle is working.
suck it up man lifting weights is not something that should feel amazing.

He got a point there, lol.
When I do curls, however, it's my biceps/triceps that feel the burn - I've never felt pain in my forearm. Try lifting a little less, or go see a doctor. You should see a doctor, anyway, to see if it's even safe for you to be lifting weights (it isn't for some people).

Good luck.

Forearm workouts?

At my gym, there are no machines designed to work out the forearm. And dumbells work your bicep/tricep area...
Are there any forearm workouts that don't require you to lift or pull your body (for some reason I can never do anything that has to do with lifting/pulling my body...like pushups. I could do them - it's just boring as hell. I'd rather work with machines or something.). However, if there's no other way, I'll be more than willing to do that.

Thanks.

i know of 2. i just got these "heavy grips" hand workouts about 2 weeks ago. they come in lbs from 100 to 350. i got the 150 lb one and i could do about 7 reps right out of the box and i am only 15. these grips work your wrist and forarm, heavygrips.com, look it all up there. another workout you can make it yourself. it is called a wrist roller, get a piece of wood that is 2 inches thick and 2 feet long drill a centimeter hole in the middle of stick, put a rope about 4 or 5 feet long down the hole tie a knot on one end and tie the other end to a 10 lb weight. hold this stright in front of you, dont bend your elbows and start turning the wood toward you, and it will bring the weight up, when it is at the bottom, start turning it the other way. it is an intense workout in the beginning but it will eventually become easy. look up on google wrist roller for an actual picture of it if u need help

I also use a wrist roller, and I use a Gripstik. The Gripstik is like a roller without the string (very handy)

What I did for forearm, is take an old hockey stick that was broken.. sharpen down the edges or just add tape and tied a shoelace to it and a 35 lb weight. Grab the stick with both arms fully extended, against a wall, and I just roll up the shoelace till the weight reachs the top of the stick and I let it down. I do this for increments of 30 seconds, but I find it a great/easy/cheap workout for your forearms.
