Why does my wrist hurt when I curl?

I’m guessing you’re talking about curling weights, not curling in the Olympics.

It’s funny my wrist actually does hurt when I curl. For me it’s because the ligaments in the wrists are a little too loose.

They allow too much movement when you put kind of that sheer force through. And if too much movement is allowed there then it can cause kind of some shifting and irritation

That’s probably the most common reason a wrist would hurt with bicep curls. There are other things from the shoulder to the bicep tendon that we probably see more commonly hurt with bicep curls if there’s an issue with those.
