    Bench Press Burnout

    My weight training coach at school told us we shouldnt do bench press burnouts because they can hurt your tendons and he thinks that is why he has a bad shoulder. Does anyone know if burnouts really do hurts your tendons? Also, what about a bicep burnout. Would a bicep burnout hurt any tendons in your arm?

    I will do that once in a while to see what I can achieve. I can go to 20 on 135. It won't get you big or strong to do high reps of light weights. I suggest that if you can't work biceps to soreness, then do some negatives and higher number of sets. 12 is a good all around rep number to limit to.

    What your coach said only applies if you use bad form. For instance if on bench you flare your elbows out than burnouts or any high intensity training methods could cause injuries. Also bicep burn outs should not hurt any tendons in your arm if you use propper form. Also if you are trying to increase strength than I dont reccomend burnouts but instead I would do rest pauses. With this you choose a weight that you can only do 4-5 times, rest twenty seconds and then do the same weight to failure, and then drop a little bit of weight rest twenty seconds and then go again. You should end up with a total of 8-10 reps instead of the high reps involved in most burnouts.

    He may be thinking of tenonitis, which is an inflammation from overuse of the connective tissue (the tendon). If you've heard of tennis elbow this is what tennis players are talking about, the constant motion putting unexpected stress on the tendon causing a painful inflammation.

    Young athletes that are new to a sport are at risk of overuse injuries when they jump into an activity too fast. Older people are equally susceptible because they often have poor circulation (the connection tissue does not have blood vessels of its own).

    Your coach could be talking about any number of injuries, but if you develop an ache that doesn't relieve without antinflammatory medications then odds are that doing any exercise to failure won't harm you.
