theres a fitness thread in here somewhere, probably lying dormant like a good Zombie thread. Functional fitness regimes seem to be all the rage these days, and its a good thing, Theres no real point going to the Gym and smashing yourself on doing max weights when your job requires endurance and stamina.
what you are up to sounds like a good mix. cant post you any links, got none from work.
Mental capabilities? I sit in the lunchroom and play with iPhone apps all day, does that count? Oh and some of the guys pretend they are jousting in the ye olde days with broomsticks and computer chairs... Highspeed.
Itīs not about the weight, because when I use a W-shaped bar I have no problems. I was told that it could be because of the nerves located in my forearms.
Iīd like to know if anyone here has the same trouble, and how to deal with it (besides choosing a W-shaped bar ). Sould I "re-start" with a straight bar, but with lower weight, untill my forearms stop to pain?

Rippetoe discusses this either in Starting Strength or on his website. It has something to do with flexibility in your wrists. Give them a good stretch before you use the straight bar again (which he says is better than the EZ-bar).
I used to get the same thing when I was starting out, people told me it was "forearm splints". I did hammer curls and chin-ups until it healed, then would go back to the straight barbell. Eventually your body will adapt and the pain won't happen anymore.
