    Default overdoing short bending,recovery

    Recently moved up to a thicker nail,havn't been overdoing the volume but i have developed a little ache in my left forearm that feels more tendonal than muscular.Starts in the wrist and ends in the elbow joint.
    Taking a week off short bending and i was wondering what,in the meantime i could do to aid recovery?Contrast baths?mobility?light gripper work or powerball work?

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

    Btw,i only work short bending once a week.Bend to destruction 1-2 nail(depending what nail i'm on).And do supplemental work on another day.2 sets gripper and 2 sets sledge levers.

    Default Bending

    I've only started bending myself, so I have no experience or advice, other than rest and perhaps ice. But I did want to reply to keep the thread going.

    If you bend in the reverse style (not DO or DU) it might help you to add in dumbbell curls to help prevent the forearm tweaks that the reverse style tends to aggravate in my forearms.

    Otherwise it's just smart that you're taking some time off before you actually do injure yourself and then have to take a lot of time off to recover. All the things you mentioned should be good for recovery by the way. Also washing dishes with really hot water before bending is a good way to get the lower arms warmed up and ready to go. You can rinse with cold water for a contrast bath effect and your significant other will be pleased that the dishes are done so it's a win-win situation.
