it's a soreness/pain in your forearms. It also seems to make the arms feel more weak.

blood flow into the forearms is greater than the outflow.

Oh ok. I am sure that parking lot stuff doesn't hurt that bike at all.

Yeah, the weakness comes from the restiction of the tendons and nerves from the inflamed muscle tissue. And to mention over time this can develop into permanent scar tissue and carpal tunnel.

you idea is to keep it from happening in the first place. If your in a position to relax it will go away within a few minutes. You cant really do this mid-race or in the middle of a show or comp

like the article says, relaxing your grip and reducing the strain on the arm by changing up your riding posture and even the bike setup will reduce (if not eliminate) arm pump on the motocross track.

i just think that the article is missing on one key-part-of-the-solution: water and its hydrating properties!

I cured my arm pump issues by going wider with my clip-ons, which gave me more leverage.

Worked for me. Oh yeah, I make sure I start to hydrate at least 2 days prior to any event.
