Just started working out, I'm currently in my second week. Did my research before starting so I haven't had too many issues so far. However, I definitely think I should ask about this before going much longer. Definitely want to prevent injury.
I'm following All Pro's Beginner Routine so if possible I really would not like to have to change the weight or reps (dunno if there are any other solutions, that's why I'm here though!)
When I do barbell bicep curls, I experience some pain in the region of my left elbow. This mostly occurs when I start exerting myself with the exercise (sometimes end of first set, usually middle to end of second set). It's not an unbearable pain but it is undeniably there and I don't want to hurt myself. I don't think I'm using too much weight because I calculated my 10RM to be 32lb and I'm currently curling 30lb for 2 sets of 9. I've also double and triple checked my form and I don't think that's the problem either. One thing I have determined is that by simply lowering the bar about 1 inch less than proper form dictates I should (i.e. lowering it to about waist-level instead of just below waist-level) I can mitigate or even remove the pain, but I don't know whether that's just because the exercise is less exerting when I'm not quite doing the full range of motion or what and I don't want to stray from proper form anyway.
What's this all about?
