    Sore joints??!

    Ok so whenever I work out my biceps usually when I should be feeling the soreness around the muscle, I feel very sore at my elbow joints. I know this isn't a good thing. I usually do some biceps curls, curl machines, barbell curls, etc...

    Can some one help me out? I know I'm hurting my joints but am I using too much weight or have wrong form?

    Work more on bigger body parts and compound movments.

    Example: Have a solid back workout and your bicepts will gain from that+ doing direct work for bies.

    You may be utilizing too much resistance. Often, inappropriately high weights make us engage and stress areas which should not be activated under conventional approaches.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    It might be that you are straining your forearms while stabilizing your curls. I had this problem when I first started. My biceps would be able to handle a good deal more than my forearms could comfortably handle. It resulted in a pain that extended up my forearms all the way around my elbows. I got rid of this by adding extra forearms exercise such as wrist curls, reverse wrist curls, reverse bicep curls, farmer carries, and hand grips into my workout.

    In the meantime, I'd suggest supplementing with fish oil, flax seed oil, and Osteo Bi-Flex. Also, make sure you aren't over-cutting fat from your diet.

    This.^^

    Focus on the big lifts and less isolation work.

    Fish oil is always a good choice. Shark cartilage works well too.

    Isolate the biceps (edit: during curls), and don't use the muscles that contract your elbows.

    You hold weight, and contract your biceps to affectively shorten the tendon between your forearm and shoulder. You don't try to bring your hands to your shoulders by strengthening your entire arm.

    If that was what you were doing, then you were using too much weight.

    I get pain in my elbows a lot, and I attribute it to tendonitis. It flares up whenever I do a lot of volume or go very heavy (which is pretty often lol). Once you become more accustomed to the weights, it should reside a bit.

    Make sure you are stretching your forearms a lot, it seems to help me to a great degree. I wear some light elastic elbow sleeves if the pain gets really bad.

    Good advice in the previous posts.

    Stop doing the supported biceps work for a while (preacher, machine, etc.). If you are overloading there's a good change you're pulling back and down on the supported work (pivoting around the humerus) and putting more sheer on the elbow than is warranted or wanted for that movement. No guarantees, but I've seen this with a lot of folks, and _maybe_ been guilty of it myself a time or two
    2 + 2 = 5 (for extremely large values of 2)
