HELP PLEASE... to prevent potential incoming injury?

Hi all,

Slightly concerned

A few times after after been doing biceps, the tendons just below my biceps have felt a little, stiff. not very painful but just slightyl sore.

It happened mainly when doing hammer curls so I starting going really light.

Does hurt or feel stiff or sore normally (when not training)

Anyway, yesterday i was on the machine flyes machine, and just holding the handles, i got the same thing, the tendons there felt a little sore and stiff.

also noticed that my left arm for curls now has more stamina that my right.

Have a i got a tendon problem? what can i do? tendons not gonna snap right? that'd be aweful.

Please let me know.

    When doing curls above a certain weight, i get a pain in my left upper forearm. After curls DOMS is usually present on the 'inner elbow' side where tendons attach and is the last part of the muscle to stop aching.

    Don't know what to do really, possibly grip work as it may be caused my weak forearms. Starting to bug me, getting stronger in curls then having to ease off.....

    so is this normal?

    i'm just hoping that this isn't a warning for an injury. should i take a couple of weeks out or what?

    its normal for me, i find high reps (12+) stop the tendon pain being too much

    and not going to complete lockout as well will help bring the weight back towards yourself while your elbow still has some bend

    hi guys thanks for the advice.

    Yeah I'm gonna not gonna train fro a couple of weeks to rest up. maybe just do cardio.

    glad to know i'm not the only one.

    Diesel - would that mean using a ltd range of motion. would that be less effectiove for muscle growth?
    I suppose though, if it prevents a major injury then it's a good plan.

    ginasmg - stretching before training too? I was told a while back that it was actually worse to do that. am i wrong?
    I always stretch well afterwards anyway.

    cheers.
    any other input is greatly received.

    it depends on who you speak to mate people have different views,but when you talk to most trainning instructors it seems to be the norm to teach this.however i have found it more beneficial to warm up first as opposed to stretching for me personally,and i never stretch down afterwards as im not convinced this has any effect on recovery.

    ginasmg - from what I heard, tyou're more likely to tear a muscle if stretch cold or cold-ish, i was told stretching after streches out the muslce fibres making them more flexible, and alos helps blood flow. but I could be wrong?


    Anyone got an answer to help us out?
