I added in more bicep work, a forearm exercise, rear laterals, calf raises, and leg curls. My joints are utterly beat up right now, and my elbow tendinitis is coming back. My curl form is locked down, so it's not a form issue.

I have found that my joints feel better when I avoid isolation work. I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but when I stick with basics/compounds my joints feel great.
