I started getting motivated after really receiving an ego blow from the wife (long story) and decided that I needed to get in shape. For about 6 weeks I started doing pushups and light DB workouts at home to see if I would stick with it and justify a gym membership. I did!
Decided to join a gym and work with a trainer there to make sure I do things right.
Had my first session 2 days ago and I wake up yesterday with horrible horrible pain in the area between my Bicep and Forearm. 2 days now and it's really painful when I straighten my arm out.
The workout consisted of Chest/Tricep/Bicep. I'm confident that the pain is a direct result of the curls I was doing. The trainer had me working to muscle exhaustion each set - (between 8-10 reps) , and I honestly feel like the weight was a bit high for me. This isn't the first time I've felt this particular pain (it seems to involve doing curls in the past).
Have I torn or damaged something or is this normal?
Should my trainer have started me off slower or is this expected for the first week?
Muscle soreness I can deal with but this stinks.
